Salvation

Salvation
We believe that salvation is a gift of God’s grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. Jesus Christ’s death fully accomplished justification through faith and redemption from sin. Jesus Christ died in our place and bore our sins in His own body. On the third day after His death, Jesus Christ physically rose again, proving and validating His victory over sin and death.

We believe salvation is received by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. Good works and obedience are results of salvation, not requirements for salvation. Due to the greatness, sufficiency, and perfection of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice, all those who have truly received Jesus Christ as Savior are eternally secure in salvation, kept by God’s power, secured and sealed in Jesus Christ forever. Just as salvation cannot be earned by good works, neither does it need good works to be maintained or sustained. Good works and changed lives are the inevitable results of salvation.
