What We Believe About Salvation
About the Work of Salvation:
We believe that salvation, or the “New Birth” experience, is a gift that can only be reached by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, and acceptance of His death on the cross as payment for our sins (Rom. 5:1-2; Rom. 10:8-10). We believe that salvation is granted to man as a work of God’s free grace, or unmerited favor (Eph. 2:8-9). It cannot be earned, bought, or given as a reward for one’s service (Rom. 3:26-28). We also believe that when one is saved, or born again, there is an inner change that is brought about in the heart. True repentance, genuine faith, and dependence upon Jesus Christ for salvation must accompany this change or regeneration. Once one’s heart has been changed by faith they are no longer the same. Christ makes them new. (2Cor. 5:17)
About the Process of Salvation:
We believe that every believer is called, or elected, and chosen to be saved “according to the forknowledge of God the Father” (I Pet. 1:2; Rom. 8:29-31). The Bible teaches that there is a process that one who is called will complete in recognition of his call and acknowledgement of his salvation.
By these simple steps, one acknowledges what Christ did for mankind on the cross by shedding His blood and dying in our place; and he/she recognizes the call of salvation given by the Father through the working of His free grace, and thereby accepts that call through faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

Prayer of Salvation
“Lord Jesus, I admit that I am a sinner, and I need You to save me. I repent and turn away from my sin. I believe that you died on the cross in my place, to forgive me of my sins. I believe that you rose again from the dead and you have the power to be the Lord of my Life. Come into my heart Lord Jesus, I confess you as my savior. I never want to be the same again. In Your name I pray, Amen.”
