We believe that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God, and are ETERNALLY SECURE in Jesus Christ (John 1:11-12, 3:3, 10:28-29; Romans 8:35-39, 10:9-10; John 5:24; 1 Corinthians 6:19; Jude 1:24). We believe, however, that God is a holy, righteous Father and that, since He cannot overlook the sin of His children, He will, when they persistently sin, chasten them and correct them in infinite love; but having undertaken to save them, He will in the end present every one of them faultless before the presence of His glory and conformed to the image of His Son (Hebrews 12:5-11; 1 John 5:13, 16-17).
