We believe in the Doctrines of Grace as articulated in the five solas of the Reformation: Scripture alone, Christ alone, Grace alone, Faith alone, to the Glory of God alone.
- Scripture Alone (Sola Scriptura) – Sola Scriptura is a belief that the Bible is the only infallible and sufficient source of revelation, and that everything we need to know about God, mankind, redemption, and sanctification can be found in scripture alone. The doctrine of Sola Scriptura is the foundation for all other doctrines within the church.
- Grace Alone (Sola Gratia) – Salvation is a gift from God, and given solely on the merits of His Grace. Salvation can not be earned in any way, it is entirely a gift.
- Faith Alone (Sola Fide) – Pronounced “Fee-Day”, that salvation comes through faith alone, and not by works. Faith itself is not a work, but is itself a gift from God (Ephesians 2:8-9).
- Christ Alone (Solus Christus) – Salvation comes only through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross. His gruesome death on a Roman cross was substitutionary in nature, which means that he acted as our substitute. We deserved the punishment that He took upon Himself.
- To the Glory of God Alone (Soli Deo Gloria) – All work of redemption and salvation is for God alone, and by God alone, and to God’s glory alone. The purpose of salvation is to glorify God.
