We teach that everyone is a sinner, as Romans states, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” The Bible further tells us that our punishment for sin is eternal death and separation from God.
But there is hope. The Gospel is the good news of Jesus’ triumph over death. Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, was crucified and died for our sins. He was buried in a tomb and rose again three days later, overcoming sin and death on our behalf.
This means salvation is now made possible by grace, and we can receive it through faith in Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection.
We teach that salvation is by grace alone, obtianed through faith and obedience, not by our own works or goodness.
We show faith and obedience by personally identifying with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection through repentance, water baptism in Jesus’ name, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit as evidenced by speaking in tongues.
