You might wish to look into the Methodist concepts of Prevenient Grace, Justifying Grace, and Sanctifying Grace. Justifying Grace would correlate somewhat with faith, and Sanctifying Grace with works.

I'm not evangelizing or anything. I just found that the concepts involved helped me to organize faith/works/grace in my mind.

Amd of course the whole love your God and love your neighbor as yourself could be seen broadly to refer to faith and works. And then there's James' more direct statement.

My own personal theology says that the Lord God Almighty, maker of all things and knower of all things, can and will "save" whomever he pleases, for whatever reasons he pleases. And I trust him to do that better than any human concepts of salvation can encompass. And it's our job on earth to just do our best.

Which doesn't mean I don't enjoy discussing the theological points.

Again, these are my opinions only and to my knowledge not embraced by anyone else at all, and I'm not saying they're any more right or wrong than what anyone else believss.
