Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved (Acts 16:31).
The Philadelphia Church Age
The United States was founded in the Philadelphia church age – the Church with the open door (Rev 3: 7-13). The United States has done more than any Nation in history in spreading the True Gospel of Jesus Christ. No nation has ever sent more missionaries, spent more money, sent more Bibles, translated more languages into Scripture or sown more “heavenly seed” to influence the world. Our Godly heritage has been a catalyst for sending the Blessed Gospel world-wide. While it is certainly true that not everyone in the U.S. is a Bible-believing Christian - especially in this post-modern (i.e., post-Christian) age we live in - no nation like ours was ever used by Almighty God for sharing the “Old, Old Story.” The USA is also unique in that we are made up of “whosoevers” gathered from all nations of the earth.
