CCF Statement of Belief About Salvation Print

Canton Christian Fellowship believes that, "God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:16 NIV)

We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice. We believe that each person who receives, by faith, Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord is born again of the Holy Spirit and, therefore, becomes eternally secure as a child of God. We believe that justification means that a person is declared righteous in the sight of God by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. We believe the Holy Spirit baptizes each believing person into the body of Christ at the moment of salvation and that there is no second baptism of the Holy Spirit.
