God created humanity to have fellowship with Him, but humans defied God by sinfully living life their own way. To rectify this, we need God's saving grace to end our separation from Him.
As the Bible teaches, we believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, not by works. Faith in Jesus is the means by which a person is justified.
At the same time, a sinner must:
- Believe the gospel;
- Repent of his sinful life;
- Be baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ;
- And receive the gift of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues. (Acts 2:38; 4:12; 8:12-17; 10:43-48; 19:1-6)
The various aspects of faith and obedience work together in God's grace to reconcile us to God.*IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS - OR ANY OTHER BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES - PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECTLY!
