Basis of Assurance

Grace Evangelical Society Affirmation of Belief (brochure), Grace Evangelical Society, Irving, TX.

The assurance of eternal salvation is based only on the promise God makes in His Word that everyone who trusts in Jesus Christ alone possesses eternal life (John 5:24; I John 5:9-13). Good works, which can and should follow regeneration, are not necessary to a firm assurance of eternal life even though they may have a secondary, confirmatory value (Eph. 2:10; Titus 3:8).
