The Way of Salvation
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace through the atoning death and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
We believe that the great gospel blessing which Christ secures to such as believe in him is justification; that justification included the pardon of sin, and the promise of eternal life on principles of righteousness; that it is bestowed, not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done, but solely through faith in the Redeemerís blood; by virtue of which faith his perfect righteousness is freely imputed to us of God; that it brings us into a state of most blessed peace and favor with God, and secured every other blessing needful for time and eternity.
The Freeness of Salvation
We believe that the blessings of salvation are made free to all by the Gospel, and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner but his own depravity and rejection of the Gospel.
Grace in Regeneration
We believe that in order to be saved, sinners must be regenerated or born again through the work of the Holy Spirit.
Repentance and Faith
We believe that repentance and faith are inseparable graces, wrought in our souls by the regenerating Spirit of God, and are essential steps in salvation.
Godís Purpose and Election
We believe that Election is the eternal purpose of God, according to which He graciously regenerates, sanctifies, and saves sinners; and that this is consistent with the free agency of man.
We believe that sanctification is a progressive process by which the believer is made partaker of Godís holiness, and that this process begins in regeneration. (1 Thessalonians 4:3); and that it is carried on in the hearts of believers by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit.
