- Salvation by Grace
- Security of the believer
The security of the believer is one of the dividing points between what the Bible teaches and many denominations. We are unapologetic "once saved always saved" The scriptures makes it clear "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." (Rom 8:1). With this assurance, Paul writes:
blessed is the one against whom the Lord will never count sin.” (Rom 4:8)
Baptism is the first sign of obedience and should follow shortly after Salvation. With this said, it is important that we make the distinction between us and many who hold that Baptism is required for salvation.
Paul makes it clear that He did not come to baptize but to preach the gospel distinguishing the difference in the two
"For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel – and not with clever speech, so that the cross of Christ would not become useless." (1Cor 1:17)
Along with this distinction, the Bible also teaches that Baptism is by immersion only and by the authority of a New Testament church in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- Living for Christ
Living for Christ is and always will be a vital part in evangelizing the world. The Bible teaches that the world lives in darkness and must come to the light of Jesus to be saved. The difference in what the Bible teaches, and many churches today is that of motivation . Many seek to please God to gain salvation or at least keep it. This is foreign to the Scriptures. God created man and gave him a choice when He places the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil" in the garden. This was not a mistake on God's part it was placed there so man could demonstrate his love for God. Without a choice man could never show God love. We live for God because we love God. When our motives become self-serving, we loose the element of love. Our lives become legalistic. The Pharisees were very much of this group and served themselves and not God.
