Preached in North Carolina, by the dear pastor of 13th Street Baptist Church, Ashland KY, in 1976. We regret this old tape recording has a bit of the message cut off at the beginning and at the ending, along with some distorted places throughout β but we have found the message to be such a word from God that we dared not omit it.
What is true saving faith? What is salvation? When is a man saved? How can we know that we have true faith in Christ and are saved?
Pastor Mahan will help all who "have ears to hear."
Great Sermon! We must have heard this before, but what a great sermon in every respect. How we need preachers today like dear Henry Mahan. This must have been surely led by the Holy Spirit, it moved one to tears, and thrilled our hearts.

Great Sermon! I listened to Brother Mahan's sermon "What is true saving Faith?" Loved it and, to the best of my knowledge I have never heard a pastor/teacher speak the truth from a local church pulpit as plainly as he does here. If this great truth were preached from our pulpits today, we would all have to carry a bottle of smelling salts to revive the people, or maybe run and rescue the pastor before they took him to the edge of a cliff to throw him off. Sad, sad that such sweet sounds are not being spoken and heard, as a rule, in our days.
Praise the Lord that He has given us grace upon grace and a love of the truth. Oh what a debtor are we! "The Lord is my portion, saith my soul."
Please hear this sermon and I hope it will affect you as it has affected us.
