It has been said here at ExPreacherMan.com as well other places that there are over 150 verses in the New Testament that demonstrate that our salvation comes by grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone. Below are over 160 verses to illustrate that point. These are Bible verses (all King James Version) referenced by Richard A. Seymour in his great booklet, THE GIFT:

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Confessing Christ is not a requirement for receiving eternal life. The terms “saved” and “salvation” in this passage are not referring to eternal salvation, but to salvation from physical danger or divine discipline).
