About Salvation - Soteriology

Christ's death on the cross paid the penalty of sin and enabled all who would accept him as Savior to have their sins forgiven and gain eternal life.

We believe that man is a sinner, deserves to go to Hell, and will never choose God on his own.  God provided the means of salvation through the shed blood of His Son, Jesus Christ.  It is only by God's grace that God brings conviction, through the Word of God by the power of the Holy Spirit, to the heart of man concerning man's sin and unbelief.  Those who do accept Christ are made spiritually alive and justified before God.  The Spirit of God comes to dwell within them and enables them to live for God.  Because of the fact that salvation is a free gift of God's grace, it can never be lost or taken away.  Those who do not accept Christ will be judged according to their works and sentenced to an eternity in Hell.
