We are justified by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, and are born again by the Holy Spirit, who testifies to salvation in our hearts as we continue in an obedient faith-relationship with Christ. The mission of the Church is to invite the world to share in this salvation. The Church that has received the good news of grace has the privilege of preaching it to a world which does not know or understand its truth. The Church that has learned to trust in Jesus has the joy of inviting to faith those who no longer trust. The Church that has the assurance of sins forgiven has the confidence to bring the message of God's reliable provision.
