We believe that salvation is a gift of God's grace! By faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross (Ephesians 2: 8-9). Christ's death accomplished complete remission of sins justified by faith. Christ died in our place (Romans 5: 8-9) and bore our sins in His own body (1 Peter 2:24). On the third day after his death, Jesus rose physically again and demonstrated His victory over sin and death (Romans 14: 9). We believe that salvation is only received through grace, only through faith, only through and in Christ. Good works and obedience are results of salvation, not requirements for salvation. Because of the greatness, adequacy and perfection of Christ's sacrifice, all who have truly accepted Christ as Savior are eternally safe and saved, by God's power, eternally assured and sealed in Christ (John 6: 37-40;) (10) : 27-30); (Romans 8: 1, 38-39) (Ephesians 1: 13-14); (1 Peter 1: 5); (Jude 24). Just as salvation cannot be earned by good works, it also does not need good works to be maintained or supported. Good works and changed lives are the inevitable results of salvation (James 2).
