(Text of 2015 version is below.)

This developed from an exposition of Romans chapter 8 in the Bible for a Nigerian RCCG church in August 2011. Since then, the idea of 'three-dimensional salvation' has become more useful, and this page is being built to be a summary of it, prior to fuller discussion.


Salvation has three dimensions.

Each of these seems to have been present in the New Testament era, but became largely lost in the mediaeval church. Each began to be rediscovered at a different period in history over the past 500 years, giving rise to different movements and mindsets. Each of the first two thought they had discovered the fulness of salvation and resisted or resists the advent of the next. Sometimes those who recognise later dimensions look down on earlier ones. Yet all three are necessary for full, rich redemption, otherwise salvation becomes one-dimensional or flat two-dimensional.
