WHAT WE BELIEVE
Our theology and teaching are bounded by these biblically affirmed principles:
Our righteousness before God (justification) is by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone. In justification Christ's righteousness is imputed to us as the only possible satisfaction of God's perfect justice. Our justification does not rest on any merit to be found in us.
The inerrant Scripture (the Bible) is the sole source of written divine revelation, which alone can bind the conscience. The Bible alone teaches all that is necessary for our salvation, and is the standard by which all Christian behavior must be measured.
Our salvation is accomplished by the mediatorial work of the historical Christ alone. His sinless life and substitutionary atonement alone are sufficient for our justification and reconciliation to the Father.
In salvation we are rescued from God's wrath by his grace alone. It is the work of the Holy Spirit that brings us to Christ by releasing us from our bondage to sin and raising us from spiritual death to spiritual life. It is firmly denied that salvation is in any sense a human work.
GLORY TO GOD ALONE
It is affirmed that because salvation is of God and has been accomplished by God, it is for God's glory and that we must glorify Him always. In response to His work in and through us, we live our entire lives before the face of God, under the authority of God and for His glory alone.
