Once a person is saved, they are kept by God’s power and are secure in Christ forever (Jn. 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Rom. 8:1, 38-39; 1 Cor. 1:4-8; 1 Pet. 1:4-5; Jn. 10:27-28; 1 Jn. 5:13). We believe that justification is the act of God whereby He declares us to be righteous through faith in Christ Jesus. A person is justified, not on the basis of any works of righteousness which he has done, but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood (Isa. 53:11; Acts 13:39; Rom. 5:1-9; Rom. 8:1-2; 2 Cor. 5:18-21; Eph. 1:7).
It is a privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word. God's Word clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occassion to the flesh (Rom. 13:13-14; Gal. 5:13; Tit. 2:11-15).
