Justification is the "judicial act whereby God imputes the righteousness of Christ to sinner" (p. 130). It is a declaration by God, not by works of man, in which the almighty declares sins freely pardoned and believers accounted righteous and worthy of eternal life. Justification involves a "change in the believer's standing before God rather than a change of nature" (p. 134). The grounds of the believer's new standing before God is Christ's righteousness which is imparted through the faith of the believer.
