We believe that salvation is the free gift of God’s grace (undeserved mercy) for Christ’s sake alone and that that God’s grace in Christ Jesus is universal, embracing all people of all times and all places. There is no sin for which Christ has not died.
We believe that individuals receive this gift of salvation through faith alone. Saving faith is trust in Jesus Christ.  Even faith itself is seen as a gift of God, created in the hearts of Christians by the work of the Holy Spirit through the Word and Baptism.
