WE BELIEVEthat men and women can be saved from sin and come into possession of eternal life by realizing they are sinners, believing that the Lord Jesus Christ loves them and has provided salvation through His own shed blood upon Calvary. Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ as personal Savior and Sin-bearer and is entirely a free gift of God. Salvation cannot possibly be achieved by humanity’s works (John 3:14-18, 36; 5:25; 6:47; Acts 4:12; Romans 1:16, 17; 3:20-26; 5:1; 8:1; Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:18, 19; Revelation 1:5).
WE BELIEVEthat at death the saved enter into the presence of God immediately to spend eternity with Him. At death, the unsaved go immediately into eternal conscious punishment. We believe in the future bodily resurrection of all the dead (Daniel 12:2, 3; Luke 16:19-31; John 5:28, 29; 1 Corinthians 15:22, 51-54; 2 Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 20:4-6, 10-15).
WE BELIEVEthat the Holy Spirit convicts sinners of their need of Christ as Savior and regenerates those who place faith in Christ. The Holy Spirit indwells all true believers. As believers yield to His control He enables them to obey the will of God for them and to lead godly lives, separate from the sins of the world (John 7:37-39; 14:16, 17; 16:7-15; Acts 2:38; Romans 8:1-17; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20; Galatians 5:16; Ephesians 5:18).
