4.2 Becoming a Christian involves four things which properly belong together: repentance, faith, receiving new life which the Holy Spirit gives, and baptism.

4.4 Faith recognises that we cannot save ourselves. All we can do is to receive with gratitude the provision which God has made for us to be reconciled to Him through Jesus Christ, and to trust Him to keep His promises to save all who turn to Him. Through faith in Jesus Christ, believers are united with Him so that when God looks at us, He sees the perfect righteousness of Jesus instead of our sin. God declares just (or ‘justifies’) those who trust in Christ in this way, pardoning their sin and counting them righteous. Those who are justified are adopted into God’s family.
