The central teaching of the Apostles was the resurrection. If not for the resurrection of Jesus we would not have Christian faith. The resurrection proved to the people that Jesus fulfilled his prophecy and that in fact he was God in human form. Christian believe that without the resurrection of Jesus there would not be any Christians. “We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4, ESV) Believing in the resurrection of Christ shows Christians that he is our true salvation and that he must be our one way to God. The resurrection proves that God does have faith in all of us, forgives us of our sins, and is true to his word. By bringing back Jesus, his only son, proves that he forgives us all and shows the undying love a father has for his son. We need to have faith and love for one another the Christian worldview is based on love, faith and trust and accepting God in your lives and living a good life by spreading to word of the lord and by doing this God will grant us eternal life in heaven. All this is based on the one selfless act of the resurrection of his life that proves to all humanity that God is the way of true everlasting life. Without this there would not be no Christian Faith.

corrupted by sin. Justification is another solution to human problems. Justification is what happens when you turn to God and accept him fully in your life. Justification means that Christ’s payment for sin’s is credited to your account, resulting in you now being justified in God’s sight. Salvation is all a work of God’s free grace received by grace. (Topic 5 Overview, 2017) What Role do Grace and Faith play in Christian Salvation? Grace and Faith play a major role in Christian salvation. The bible says “by grace you have been saved through faith; and not by yourselves, it is a gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8 NLV) Christians believe they received salvation by believing that Jesus was sent by God to die on the cross for our sins and rising from the dead on the third day. Giving us eternal life as a gift from God. With God’s grace, he granted us with eternal life to live in heave with him. The bible say’s "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord". (Romans 6:23 NLV) Christian belief is based on Grace of God and Faith in God and we shall have eternal life. Another bible verse “I have written these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God. Now you can know you have life that lasts forever. We are sure that if we ask anything that He wants us to have, He will hear us.” (1 John 5:13-14 NLV) How do Christians think the Transformation of Self and Society Happens?
