We believe that all people are born with sin and in need of salvation from that sin. Personal salvation is necessary for entry into God’s kingdom and the eternal life He offers.  We are saved or justified on the single basis of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ which only comes through the regenerative work of the Holy Spirit.  Only by God's grace through faith alone can one be saved (Jn 3:16-19; 5:24; Rm 3:23; 5:8-9; Eph 2:8-10).
