… a Christian who believes in the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Creator, Redeemer, Sanctifier.)
… a Christian who believes in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and that His death and resurrection provides full and free forgiveness of sin.
… a Christian who believes that a person is saved only by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, not by “good works.”
… a Christian who believes that the Holy Bible is the true and unchanging Word of God and as such is the only source of Christian teaching and the standard for Christian life.
… a Christian who believes that the Gospel of Jesus Christ liberates believers from the fear of eternal death and that His Holy Spirit enables us to live in faith, joy, hope, and love.
