Salvation from the penalty and power of sin is provided only through the blood of Jesus Christ which He shed on the cross when He was made sin for us and died in our place. There is nothing that man can do to attain this salvation through good works, moral achievement or religious status.
We believe the one and only condition for salvation is personal faith in Jesus Christ as one's own substitute for (and Savior from) sin. At the time of salvation, a person is spiritually reborn, his sins are forgiven, God's righteousness is credited to him and he is declared “not guilty” in the sight of God. This salvation, we believe, is complete and a present possession of all believers which remains theirs forever. All who have trusted Christ as Savior and are truly born-again into God’s family are kept secure and will never lose their salvation. Although salvation is something that is willfully received by man (free will), it comes only through the conviction by God (predestination). Both concepts are taught in Scripture and are held to be true.
