Q: What is salvation and why get saved?
A: We believe in hell and eternal retribution. The one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost (Revelation 19:20). Salvation is redemption from eternal damnation and restoration back to God (Mark 16:16). We believe man is a created being made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam's transgression and fall, sin came into the world. "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
Q: How do I get saved?
A: We believe man's first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The new birth (being born-again) is necessary to all men, and when fulfilled produces eternal life (II Corinthians 7:10). We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He was born of a virgin, was crucified, died, was buried, and on the third day He arose from the dead and ascended on high where He took His seat at the right hand of God the Father Almighty until His enemies become His footstool (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
Q: Do I need to be baptized?
A: We believe in water baptism by immersion, which is a direct commandment of Jesus and is for Believers only. (Acts 2:38; Acts 16:33; Matthew 28:19)
Q: What about speaking in tongues?
A: We believe in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance. (Acts 2:38-39)
Q: Now that I'm saved, what's next?
A: We believe the Bible teaches that without Holiness no man shall see the Lord. The doctrine of Sanctification is a definite, yet progressive work of grace (Hebrews 12:14).
