We were created in the image of God to have community with Him and represent Him on earth. However, through a will full act of disobedience, we are separated from Him. We believe, that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin and gives us the opportunity to trade our sin for His righteousness through faith.  Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sins.
