Faith Alone. By Dr. Chuck Pedersen, Pastor

John 4:14Romans 3:24-26 New International Version (NIV)

24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement,[a] through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— 26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.

Grace Alone. By Dr. Chuck Pedersen, Pastor

Ephesian 2: 1-10 (NIV)

1As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. 4But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5made us alive with Christ even when   we were dead in transgression—it is by grace you have been saved. 6And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7in order that in the coming ages he might show the in-comparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to  do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Christ Alone. By Dr. Chuck Pedersen, Pastor

John 14: 1-7 NIV

                1”Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4You know the way to the place where I am going.”

                5Thomas said to him. “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

                6Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7“If you really knew me you would know my Father as well. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
