Acts 15:11 No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are.
The great council of the church in Jerusalem which turned the tides of evangelical Christianity in the first century. God’s grace had appeared to the Gentiles and they were coming to faith, being given the gift of grace and the Holy Spirit, and experiencing the transforming power of God’s grace. So often, when that happens, others cannot understand and come against the working of God’s grace. We see that in the church so often. “God doesn’t love those people…” Yet he does. Peter reminds his fellow apostles and church leaders that their own salvation came not by works or obeying the Laws of Moses but by grace and grace alone. The same grace that they were saved under is the same grace that the Gentiles were now receiving. Thank the Lord that he offers his grace to anyone who would receive it!
