AFFIRMATION OF FAITH
In infinite love and mercy God made Christ, who knew
no sin, to be sin for us, so that in Him we might be
made the righteousness of God. Led by the Holy
Spirit we sense our need, acknowledge our
sinfulness, repent of our transgressions, and exercise
faith in Jesus as Lord and Christ, as Substitute and
Example. This faith which receives salvation comes
through the divine power of the Word and is the gift of
God's grace. Through Christ we are justified, adopted
as God's sons and daughters, and delivered from the
lordship of sin. Through the Spirit we are born again
and sanctified; the Spirit renews our minds, writes
God's law of love in our hearts, and we are given the
power to live a holy life. Abiding in Him we become
partakers of the divine nature and have the assurance
of salvation now and in the judgment.
