Redemption Through Christ's Atonement

Since man had fallen he could not merit anything of himself;
but the sufferings and death of Christ atone for their sins,
through faith and repentance, and so forth;
and that he breaketh the bands of death,
that the grave shall have no victory,
and that the sting of death should be
swallowed up in the hopes of glory.
(Alma 22:14)
