20 Powerful Verses of Salvation By Grace Alone

Christian Faith By Oct 19, 2022 3 Comments


In this article, I will be sharing with you the 15 verses on salvation by grace alone through faith. Many verses in the Bible prove that we are saved by grace alone through faith, but 15 verses from the King James Bible stand out.

I grew up in a church that teaches the works of men as a requirement for salvation, and I always thought to myself when God would be fully satisfied with my works. I do not have enough works to get me saved.

Therefore, this led me to study my Bible and do Bible searching to see what the Scripture teaches on how a person can be saved. Then I come to the conclusion that salvation of man’s soul is by grace alone through faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Quote from John MacArthur on Salvation

20 Bible Verses of Salvation by Grace Alone.

Romans 3:24  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 

Romans 3:27-28  Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. 
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. 

Romans 4:4-5  Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. 
But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. 

Romans 4:16  Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, 

Romans 5:2  By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 

Romans 5:15  But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 

Romans 5:16  And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 

Romans 5:17  For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 

Verses that Teach Salvation is Not By Works

Romans 5:18  Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 

Romans 5:19  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 

Romans 5:20  Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 

Romans 5:21  That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Romans 11:6  And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Ephesians 1:7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Ephesians 2:5  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
Ephesians 2:7  That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

2 Timothy 1:9  Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,


With all these verses and many more in the Bible, we can see that a man is justified in the sight of God by grace alone through faith alone. These 20 verses that explain how God made salvation possible for man is an eye-opening.
