We believe that since no one could achieve such perfection because everyone has sinned, God sent his one and only Son, Jesus into the world to be our Savior from sin and death.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
God exchanged our sin for Jesus' holiness so that we might become "the righteousness of God" (2 Corinthians 5:21).
We believe that Jesus is the God-man - 100% God and 100% human being. He is the Son of God who was born of the virgin Mary. He was born into this world to obey God's law perfectly in our place (Matthew 5:17) and to suffer and die for the sins of the entire world (1 John 2:2).
We believe that Jesus rose from the dead with a glorified body on Easter morning. This resurrection serves as powerful, divine proof that God has forgiven all sin for the sake of His Son, Jesus Christ.
We believe that because of what Jesus has done, God has justified (declared "not guilty") the entire world freely by his grace (undeserved love) for the sake of Jesus (Romans 3:24).
