Salvation Only Through Christ
We believe that, owing to universal death through sin, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless born again by accepting Jesus Christ as one’s personal lord and savior. A new nature imparted from above, a new life implanted by the Holy Spirit through the Word, is absolutely essential to salvation, and only those thus saved are children of God. We believe, also, that our redemption has been accomplished solely by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was made to be sin and was made a curse for us, dying in our place; and that no feeling, no good resolutions, no sincere efforts, no submission to the rules and regulations of any church can result in salvation.
Salvation: Salvation is provided by simply confessing your sin and believing in Jesus Christ as your Savior.
Romans 10:8-9, “But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” That is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Simple prayer: Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner and I confess my sin and pray for your forgiveness. I know that you died on the cross for my sin, and I invite you to come into my heart and life. I will put my faith and trust in you. I will follow you all my days.
John 1:1, 14
Angels, Fallen and Unfallen
We believe that Satan is the originator of sin, and that, under the permission of God, he, through subtlety, led our first parents into transgression, thereby accomplishing their moral fall and subjecting them and their posterity to his own power; that he is the enemy of God and the people of God, opposing and exalting himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped; and that he who in the beginning said, “I will be like the most High,” in his warfare appears as an angel of light, even counterfeiting the works of God by fostering religious movements and systems of doctrine, which systems in every case are characterized by a denial of the efficacy of the blood of Christ and of salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone.
