Jesus Christ: Our Sacrifice

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died in our place for our sins, shedding His blood to take upon Himself all of the punishment for our sins, and that all who place their faith in Him as their Savior are declared by God to be righteous on the basis of Christ’s substitutionary death. This salvation is a gift from God by grace, apart from any human works or merit. Romans 3:21-28; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:3-8

Holy Spirit: The New Birth

We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ, trusting Him alone for eternal salvation, are born again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God, that they are indwelt and sealed by the Holy Spirit and therefore are secure until the day of final redemption. John 1:12-13; 3:3-16; 2 Corinthians 1:22; John 10:28-29; Ephesians 4:30
