From the very formation of the Early Church in Acts 2, they made it very clear that there was only one means of salvation; “there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Why is this point so necessary for our day?We are living in an era when ‘other’ religions are saying that they believe in the same Jesus as Christians, when in fact they reject Christ’s atoning work for the sinner as our substitute, and insisting that there are ‘many ways to God’. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father (God) except through me.” (John 14:6).
When the jailor in Acts 16 asked Paul and Silas, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” (Acts 16:30), they answered very directly, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household” (Acts 16:31).
Paul’s first letter addressed to the Galatians makes it very clear that there is only one gospel with Christ at the center and any other message is not the gospel. Sadly, they and many today are “so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel--” (Galatians 1:6). Be very careful who you preach and make the center of your message.
