What is the Relationship between Repentance and Salvation ? Repentance is the change of our thoughts and feelings however it's not thing that can lead us to Salvation , but it can make us do good things which are good for our self and others . for that we can see in Mathew 3:8 Produce fruit that is consistent with repentance! *Notice Repentance needs Strong faith . Salvation in Christianity is Accepting Jesus and what He did for the Universe from all your heart and mind and thank Him for the Salvation we got by Him through His Sufferings . Jesus put himself instead of us to clean us from our Sins . There are Relationship between Repentance and Salvation , It's called repentance of salvation: When a person Change his rejection of believing in Christ to believing in him therefore we can see in Act 2:36 "Therefore, let all the people of Israel understand beyond a doubt that God made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah!" Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Act 2:38 here we can strongly see that the relationship between Repentance and believing in Christ which is Salvation! Finally Repentance works side by side with Salvation . without Salvation there is no Repentance because Repentance need strong faith by God ! Act 20:21 I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.

1 Sarah R = ""Evangelical repentance consists of (1) a true sense of one's own guilt and sinfulness; (2) an apprehension of God's mercy in Christ; (3) an actual hatred of sin (Ps. 119:128; Job 42:5, 6; 2 Cor. 7:10) and turning from it to God; and (4) a persistent endeavour after a holy life in a walking with God in the way of his commandments."The true penitent is conscious of guilt (Ps. 51:4, 9), of pollution (51:5, 7, 10), and of helplessness (51:11; 109:21, 22). Thus he apprehends himself to be just what God has always seen him to be and declares him to be. But repentance comprehends not only such a sense of sin, but also an apprehension of mercy, without which there can be no true repentance (Ps. 51:1; 130:4)."- https://www.biblegateway.com/resources/dictionaries/dict_meaning.php?source=1&wid=T0003105"
2 Sarah R = "Consider these verses:Romans 3:25a "For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood."Hebrews 9:28 "So also Christ died once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him."1 John 2:2 "He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins--and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.""
3 Sarah R = "Another way to look at this: Salvation comes in two parts: Justification and Sanctification. When we believe in Jesus for the forgiveness of sins, in that moment we are justified before God (Romans 3:28 & 5:1; Galatians 2:16). But it doesn't end there. Following our Justification is a life long process of Sanctification, of becoming more like Christ in our thoughts, words and actions (1 Thessalonians 5:23; Philippians 1:6; Hebrews 10:14). "
