GRACE

The Finished Work of Christ – the Mosaic Law of the Old Testament served to condemn sin, constantly reminding the sinner that humanity at its best was and continues to be unable to meet God’s standard of righteousness and holiness.  Jesus fulfilled “The Law” while on earth, offering Himself as a perfect sacrifice for our sin.  In so doing, everyone who believes in Him becomes a New Creation in Christ, where we are made righteous as He is righteous and holy as He is holy.  Believers are not under the jurisdiction of the Law, but are under grace.  God did His part completely.  The part that remains for us is to believe and receive by faith the fullness of who Christ is and what He accomplished for us.

Salvation  

God loved us enough to give His Son, Jesus, who would willingly lay down His life as a perfect sacrifice for our sin and failure.  What we could not do on our own, Jesus did!  We are saved by grace, though faith. The scripture tells us “whoever believes in Jesus will be saved”.

God the Father  

The eternally existent One, forever holy and loving Creator, whose ultimate intention is to have many sons and daughters. God is what He is, but Father is who He is.

Jesus  

God’s only Son, eternal and holy, entered into creation, having been conceived by the Spirit and born of a virgin, revealing God the Father by living His life without sin, choosing to suffer and die for the sins of the world, rising from the dead on the third day, offering salvation and eternal life to everyone who believes.
