The believer is washed from his sins by the precious, incorruptible blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, by which he is forgiven, cleansed, purchased, justified, redeemed, sanctified and washed. And by the word of God. (Luke 8:11; Romans 10:13-15, 17). All that men know about salvation comes from this one source (John 5:24). It is itself alive (Hebrews 4:12) and able to impart life (James 1:18) to those who hear the preaching of the gospel (I Corinthians 1:18, 21; I Peter 1:23-25; James 1:21). We believe that God (in His absolute sovereignty), gave man a free will to accept or reject the salvation He has provided. Still, God is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (II Peter 3:9; Ezekiel 33:11; Acts 10:34, 35; I Timothy 2:4).
That salvation is a threefold process that begins with: Justification, being the instant and complete deliverance from the penalty of sin forever (John 5:24; Romans 4:5-9). Sanctification, being a progressive deliverance from the power of sin daily (I Corinthians 10:13; Ephesians 4:7, 12, 13; I Thessalonians 4:3; I John 1:9). Glorification, our final deliverance from the presence of sin forever (II Corinthians 1:10; 5:8; I Thessalonians 4:17; I John 3:2).
That all born-again believers are eternally secure. The Bible teaches that: True believers never perish (John 3:15,16). Neither shall any man pluck them out of the Father’s hand (John 10:28,29). They are “kept by the power of God” (I Peter 1:5), sealed until the day of redemption (Ephesians 1:13; 4:30), delivered from all condemnation (John 3:18; 5:24) Simply stated, we believe that “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ “are the only conditions for salvation”. How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation? (Hebrews 2:3; Acts 20:20,21). That while in no sense having anything to do with obtaining or retaining salvation, (Romans 3:20; Galatians 2:16; Titus 3:5), righteous living and good works are the proper evidence and fruit of salvation. (Matthew 5:16; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 2:14; I Peter 2:12)
