Grace Alone. Faith Alone. God's Word says that we are saved by grace through faith in ChristJesus and not by our own efforts or works (Ephesians 2:8-9). ... Grace alone means that God loves, forgives, and saves us not because of who we are or what we do, but because of the work of Christ. As far as the Gospel goes; Do you believe what you do matters or do you believe that faith in what has been done by God through Christ alone matters.
