Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore a sinner and has a sin nature, and is lost apart from regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
The shed blood of Jesus Christ and his resurrection provide the only avenue for salvation from the judgment of God and provide the justification whereby all who come by faith to receive God’s grace (His son, Jesus Christ) are declared and made righteous by God. We believe that only those who repent of their sins and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are born of the Holy Spirit and become children of God.
All who are truly born again are kept by the faithfulness of God the Father for Jesus Christ through the sealing work of the Holy Spirit for all eternity. We believe that, based upon the promises of the Word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit, each Christian can have the personal assurance that he is a true believer.
