We teach that man was created by God directly and immediately in His image and likeness. Man was created free from sin with a rational nature, intelligence, will, self-determination, and moral responsibility toward God (Gen. 2: 7, 15-25; James 3: 9).


We teach that God's intention in creating man was that man should glorify God, enjoy fellowship with God,

he lived according to His will, and thus fulfilled God's purpose for man in the world (Isa. 43: 7; Col. 1:16; Rev. 4:11).


We teach that in the sin of Adam's disobedience to the revealed will and Word of God, man lost his innocence, received the penalty of spiritual and physical death, became an object of God's wrath,  he became corrupt by nature and without God's grace, completely incapable of choosing and doing what is acceptable to God. Internally helpless to be reborn, man is lost without hope. Man's salvation is therefore entirely the result of God's grace through the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ (Gen. 2: 16-17; 3: 1-19; John 3:36; Rom. 3:23; 6:23; 1 Cor. 2:14; Eph. 2 : 1-3; 1 Tim.2: 13-14; 1 John 1: 8).


We teach that since all humans are descended from Adam, the nature corrupted by Adam's sin was transferred to all men of all ages except Jesus Christ. All men are therefore sinners by nature, by choice, and by divine judgment  (Ps 14: 1-3; Jer 17: 9; Rom 3: 9-18, 23; 5: 10-12)
