SalvationI believe that salvation is a gift of God’s grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross (Ephesians 2:8-9).
I believe that Christ’s death fully accomplished justification through faith and redemption from sin.
I believe that Christ died in our place (Romans 5:8-9) and bore our sins in His own body (1 Peter 2:24).I believe salvation is received by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
I believe that good works and obedience are results of salvation, not requirements for salvation.
I believe that due to the greatness, sufficiency, and perfection of Christ’s sacrifice, all those who have truly received Christ as Savior are eternally secure in salvation, kept by God’s power, secured and sealed in Christ forever (John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38-39; Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 Peter 1:5; Jude 24).
I believe that just as salvation cannot be earned by good works, neither does it need good works to be maintained or sustained.
I believe that good works and changed lives are the inevitable results of salvation (James 2).
