Salvation 

Christians affirm that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus constitute the climax of salvation history. Jesus is our savior who redeems us from sin and death. As we share Christ's life, we are restored to right relationship with God and one another. Despite our sins and insufficiency, we are made righteous and justified in Christ. We share the saving benefits of Jesus' victory over sin and death. Without God's help for our salvation, we die with Adam. But we live in Christ as we share his life by faith (1 Cor 15:22). Christ has "brought us out of sin into righteousness, out of death into life" (BCP, p. 368).
