In its basic sense, salvation means the saving of a life from harm and/or death.
Scripture in the New Testament readings states that salvation
is the deliverance from the penalty and power of sin.

For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son,
that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life
John 3:16

If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord',
and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved.

Romans 10:9

Simply put, God snatches us from death! Amen.
