We believe that our holy God created us and all things for His glory. God has provided His law to us by giving us a conscience, and specifically by giving us His Word, the Bible. All people have broken God’s law in spirit and in action. Because of this, we are guilty and deserve to be punished by death, our natural death and the second death known as hell. God is great and merciful, so he did not leave all mankind on the road to hell. In God’s great grace, he sent His son, Jesus, to this world. Jesus lived a perfect life and did not deserve to die. God decided to save particular people from the fate of hell, so he took the punishment they deserve and poured it out on Jesus by putting him to death on the cross. Jesus rose from the grave on the third day, conquering sin and death for all who repent of their sin and trust Christ alone to save them from the hell they deserve.
