A sinner saved by the grace of God given to those with faith in the crucified and risen Jesus Christ. Period.

This from Craig Keener: "Signs [of a miraculous nature] were accorded high
evidential value in antiquity. That the modern Western educated elite
tends to denigrate them is more a commentary on our culture than theirs;
most cultures in the world today (virtually all cultures not influenced
by deistic rationalism or atheistic Marxism) accept diverse forms of
supernatural activity. Thus those who reject miracles merely on the
basis of philosophical a prioris may do so as ethnocentric dogmatists
rather than as genuinely open-minded intellectuals."
