Nine Essential Marks of a True Believer

A true believer will have these definite marks or signs. His nature and life will manifest these nine essential marks. It is important that a believer examine his life to make his calling and election sure (2 Peter 1:10). The Bible says that we should examine our own faith and prove and know ourselves (2 Cor 13:5-6).


2 Cor 13:5-6

5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.

2 Peter 1:10

10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:


If you observe carefully, all these marks are granted to a believer as a gift by God’s grace.
