Are people brought in a right relationship with God because God provides for their salvation, or must we do works in order to earn our place with God in the afterlife?
The Bible is pretty clear that God provides our salvation from our rebellion by himself, all we have to do is accept it.
Look at Romans 3:21-30:
21 But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,
22 even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction;
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;
25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith.
