Grace Alone

At the heart of what we believe is the conviction that salvation is the free gift of God’s grace (undeserved mercy) for Christ’s sake alone.

Our fallen, sinful nature makes us rightful objects of God’s wrath. But God loves us and forgives our sins freely out of pure grace, though we cannot do anything ourselves to earn forgiveness.

The basis for the grace of God that alone gives hope to sinners is the perfect life and subsequent death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus was both truly God and truly human, able as man to fully identify with all our temptations and tribulations on earth while as God still having the power to lead a perfect life.

God’s plan of grace used the innocent death of Jesus as atonement for the sins of everyone on earth, embracing all people of all times and all places
