The Person and Work of Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and virgin-born of Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man.  We believe that He provided redemption from sin through His death on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice.  This redemption is sufficient for all men, but effective only for those who believe.  We believe that salvation and future resurrection are guaranteed to all believers by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead.  We believe that Christ’s atonement and resurrection ensure redemption from physical affliction for each and every believer in the eternal state, and that until such time, God heals some and not others depending on His wisdom and will.  We believe that He will return again to earth in a literal, physical Second Coming.  (John 1:1, 14, 18; Luke 1:35; Acts 1:11; Romans 3:24-26; 9:24; 2 Corinthians 12:7-10; Ephesians 1:11; Revelation 21:4)
