explanation of the Scriptures' essential teachings on God,
Jesus, salvation, and the Christian life and we hold to the
Historic Confessions of our Faith,

by their own works, but only through faith in Jesus Christ.
(Ephesians 2:8-10  For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of
God not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are

church lives and works together to
proclaim the Gospel and to provide
for our brothers and sisters in Christ
in our congregations, communities
and throughout the world.   And in
all we do, Christ is at the center, us
focused on our mission.  This will
never change.
