We believe salvation is by God’s grace alone on the basis of the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and in His resurrection, appropriated by the faith of anyone who will personally believe in his heart and confess with his mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord (Eph 2:8‐9; Rom 10:9‐10). We believe the act of salvation is just as definite and decisive as physical birth (John 3:1‐7). We believe this salvation cannot be reversed or lost and believers are kept by the power of God (John 10:28‐29; 1 John 2:19; Rom 8:35‐ 39; 1 Pet 1:5).
We recognize that the sovereignty of God and the freewill of man are both biblical truths. At the same time we acknowledge that in regard to salvation, how these two truths relate is beyond the finite understanding of man. We are not excessively Calvinistic or Arminian, but rather adhere to a balanced, biblical understanding of God and man’s role in salvation.
