Soteriology is the study of the doctrine of salvation. Mainstream Christian soteriology is the study of how God reconciles the separation between man and God due to sin.
Many Christians believe they receive the forgiveness of sins,life, and salvation obtained by Jesus through his incarnation, life, innocent suffering, death, resurrection from the dead, and ascension. Christian soteriology examines how an individual is miraculously saved by divine grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and reconciled to God.

Soteriology discusses how Christ’s death secures the salvation of those who believe. It helps us to understand the doctrines of redemption, justification, sanctification, propitiation, and the substitutionary atonement. Some common questions in studying Soteriology are:

Titus 3:5-8 is a tremendous summary of Soteriology, “He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by His grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.”
