We believe that everyone has been born in sin and because of this we are living apart from God. We cannot save ourselves from our sin.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
The good news is that God has a plan. He wants us to be with Him forever in heaven, but that cannot happen if we are lost in sin. So He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Jesus Christ died in our place! Because of His sacrifice we are able to live eternally with Him in heaven! All it takes is making the choice to believe that Christ died on the cross for your sins. This means that ANYONE who believes is going to heaven. It is so simple.
Salvation is a grace gift, there is nothing we can do to earn or deserve it. Faith in Jesus Christ is the only thing required.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8
