In fact the Polish, as a nation, do not have any advantage in thrms of being "nearer to God." I do not intend this reply to be the least offensive because the theological basics in your post are correct in accord with Scripture - there is one God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
And that is very clear in the Bible. And anyone (regardless of nationality) who believes that identity of God knows the one and only God, creator of heaven and earth and all things in them, visible and invisible. Salvation is offered by God to individuals, not whole nations.
In addition to knowing the one living God by His self revelation as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the good news (gospel) of the Bible states very clearly that Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, died for the sins of the whole world (all people. That means that your sins and mine have had their just death penalty paid on our behalf by God the Son for us. 1 Corintians 15:3-4 is very clear on that, and those verses are God's word (as are all verses of the Bible) - those two verses are what God has said (not what any human being came up with). Those verses can therefore be counted upon - trusted completely by any human being, which is the meaning of the English word "faith."
And if you know this and believe it, then verse 2 of that same chapter states that it is by the good news that Jesus died for our sins we are "saved."
This belief and this "faith" in what God has told us is given in the Bible in many places. Ephesians 2:8-10, Romans, even the Old Testament attests to the same, though as seen through a "dark" glass.
And any Polish person, or any other person on this whole planet who depends completely on what God has said that saves us from sin, death and hell is not only "near God" but is a child of God, possessing (allready) eternal life. Such believers, though they die the physical death, will never die the second death (death of their spirit).
