We believe that the salvation of sinners is by grace alone, through faith alone, for the glory of God alone. God accomplished His redeeming plan through the substitutionary sacrifice of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who by the appointment of the Father became obedient to death, even death upon a cross thus making full atonement for the sins of His people.
No human work can merit forgiveness of sins and nothing can be added to the completed work of Christ on the cross. All those who were chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, not because of foreseen faith, but because of God's mercy, are effectually called by God, respond with repentance and faith in Christ, are declared righteous on the basis of the shed blood of Christ, receive eternal life, become children of God and joint‐heirs with Christ, and are indwelt and sealed by the Holy Spirit until they are glorified at Christ's return. Should the believer die before that day, there is the confident expectation of being brought immediately into the presence of the Lord to await the resurrection.
