We believe that man was created by God in His own image; that he sinned and thereby incurred physical, spiritual, and eternal death, which is separation from God; that as a consequence, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and willfully sin by choice and are therefore under condemnation. We believe that God in His free and sovereign grace saves sinners as He wills. Salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone, and true believers will persevere in faith and good works unto the end. This good news of salvation is freely offered to all, but it requires faith in Christ, which is enabled through regeneration by the Holy Spirit, making those who are predestined to eternal life willing and able to believe.
