Christians...Slaves of God

“A person has been converted -- saved (has become a Christian) -- when the message of the Gospel has led him or her to be realigned away from their sin and toward God, turning to Christ in faith (belief/trust/confidence) and repentance (new allegiance), so that they, from then on, habitually respond to Jesus as Savior and Lord, manifesting the ‘obedience of faith’ (following, living, worshiping and working as his slave/doulos), and committing to live in obedience to everything Christ commands in every sphere of life, in accordance with the Scriptures.”

(Matt. 28:18-19; Romans 6:17-23; 1 Thess. 1:9; Acts 11:26; 26:20; Rom. 1:5; 16:26; Eph. 5:5; Col. 1:13-14; 1 John 2:3-6)
