God created man in His own image. Man sinned, which resulted in physical death and spiritual death, which is conscious and eternal separation from God. We believe that all men are born with a sin nature. Man is totally depraved. If he is not born again, he will be eternally lost (Gen. 1:26-27; Ps. 51:5; Jer. 17:9; Luke 16:23; Rev. 21:8; Rom. 3:10-23; Rom. 5:12; 1 Cor. 15:21-22; Rev. 20:11-15).
A person is saved when he repents of his sin and exercises faith by accepting Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. The basis of our salvation is the precious blood of Christ (1Peter 1:18-19).
God, however, loves us with an everlasting love and has provided a way of salvation (Jn. 14:6) from the penalty of our sin (Rom. 6:23). This salvation is gained only through Christ’s shed blood on the cross (Jn. 3:16) and is available to all mankind with no limitations whatsoever (1 Jn. 2:2).
Salvation is impossible apart from a personal choice of the sinner (Jn. 3:16). Salvation is gained only by placing your faith in the finished work of the cross (Eph. 2:8-9). At the moment of conversion, God declares the sinner righteous (justified) because of the work of Christ, which removes the penalty of sin (Rom. 8:1). The sinner is made alive spiritually (Jn. 3:36) and is now God's friend (Rom. 5:1-2, 10). The sinner is thus made a saint (Jn. 3:3-6; 2 Cor 5:17; 1 Pet. 1:23; Tit. 3:5).
There is an appointed day for the judgment of the wicked when they will be cast into the Lake of Fire, there to remain in everlasting conscious punishment and torment (Jn. 1:12; 5:24; Rom. 6:23; 2 Cor. 5:21; Eph. 2:8-9; 1 Jn. 3:2; 2 Thess. 1:7-9; Heb. 9:27; 2 Pet. 2:9; Rev. 20:12-15; Rev. 21:8).
