Can you explain the difference between repentance and faith? What are you turning from and to?
I think it would be for you to explain the difference between your 'granting faith' and scripture's 'granting repentance'.

... What does it mean to "work out your own salvation with fear and trembling"?

It is rather odd, dontcha think, that God did not "grant repentance" and forgiveness of sins to Israel until Jesus had risen from the dead.

31 He is the one whom God exalted to His right hand as a Prince and a Savior, to grant repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

Now what were Israelites supposed to do to be saved before God "granted" them repentance and forgiveness of sins?

Don't forget the Gentiles, six chapters later:
Acts 11:18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.

That would be a good way to distract from the point at hand.
