Faith in God involves more than mental assent; it involves obedience to God’s Word (the gospel). Obedience is not to be considered works that earn salvation, but as acts which correspond with living faith.
About the Gospel:
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the good news that He died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. Obedience to the gospel means experiencing death through repentance, burial through baptism, and resurrection through a new life generated by receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit.
About Christian Living:
God changes people’s live by His power so they are able to show their love for Him and for others by serving. God gives people talents and abilities, by His Spirit for this purpose.
