Salvation in Christianity, is the saving of the soul from sin and death. It may also be called "deliverance" or "Redemption" from sinful nature and it is a promise of eternal life through the spirit. It is a freedom from the flesh and temptations that steer mankind off track from full enlightenment and communion with God.

Variant views on salvation are among the main fault lines dividing the various Christian denominations, both between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism and within Protestantism, notably in the Calvinist–Arminian debate, and the fault lines include conflicting definitions of depravity, predestination, atonement, and most pointedly, justification.
