Salvation is quite an immense word.

In the NT the word salvation is used in 4 different tenses.

1. Past perfect tense - I have been saved from the pleasure of sin (Repentance)
2. Past tense - I was saved from the penalty of sin (Justification)
3. Present tense - I am being saved from the power of sin (Sanctification)
4. Future tense - I shall be saved from the presence of sin (Glorification)

There are a lot of discussions on this board about grace and works and so forth, but if you look at how Jesus has saved us, it is quite miraculous. We should look at the total work that Jesus has done for us and praise him. Salvation is a person, Jesus Christ.

Perhaps you could stimulate some discussion on the subject if you provided scripture where salvation is seen in each tense.

For the cause of Christ
