What Makes Us Christian?

We as Grace Believers believe in…

  • The Bible is the written words of God without error, inspired and preserved by God.
  • The Triune God: One God exists in three distinct persons. These three are one, each possessing all the attributes of God.
  • The Deity of Jesus Christ born of a virgin fully man, and fully God manifest in the flesh.
  • The Substitutionary Atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ for our salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
  • The literal Resurrection of Christ to offer salvation and eternal life to all who believe.
  • The Return of Christ bodily to reign and rule in heaven and earth

We as Grace Believers believe in…

  • In Mid-Acts Pauline Dispensational Right-Division of “the word of truth” (2Tim. 2:15)
  • Jesus Christ gave the Apostle Paul a new, distinct gospel“the revelation of the mystery” the formerly “secret” plan of God (Rom. 16:25) – which contains the instructions to the church for today
  • During today’s “dispensation of the grace of God” (Eph. 3:2) we are not under the law (Rom. 6:14)
  • The King James Bible is a product of God’s work and His promised obligation to perfectly preserve His words
  • The family relationship is a reflection of God and the church
  • We are all individually responsible for our choices before God. Today there is no priesthood. Christ is the only mediator between God and man (1Tim. 2:5)
  • God’s power works through sound doctrine to affect positive change in believers and in the world
  • We are God’s ambassadors who live within the world but do not live as the world

Salvation:

We Believe… We are saved from sin and death when we trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and his bodily resurrection. His sinless blood pays for our sins, earns forgiveness, and gives us His eternal life.

Salvation is not a product of:

  • – Our Prayers
  • – Popes
  • – Water Baptism
  • – Our Confession
  • – Our Good works
  • – Our Turning from sin
  • – Keeping the Commandments
  • – having Church organization membership
  • – Participation in ‘the Mass’ or ‘the Lord’s Supper’ or any religions ritual or rite

Salvation is free to the ungodly who will put their faith in the death, blood, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ … for their sins.

5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him [Jesus Christ] that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Romans 4:5 (KJV)
24 But for us also, to whom it [salvation] shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; 25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. Romans 4:24-25 (KJV)
1 Moreover, brethren, I [Paul] declare unto you the gospel which I [Paul] preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4  And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV)
