Our Faith -- Part 8... Repentance

                                                    We believe that repentance , which is sincere , and thorough change of mind in regard to sin involving a sense of personal guilt, a voluntary turning  away from sin, and a making of restitution where possible , is demanded of all who have by act or purpose become sinners against God, that the spirit of God gives to all who who will repent the gracious help of penitence of heart and hope of mercy that they may believe unto pardon and spiritual life (John 16 :8, II Corinthians 7 :10 ).

  Our Faith -- Part 9...  Justification, Regeneration & Adoption
                                                                       We believe that justification is that gracious and judicial act of God ,by which He grants full pardon all guilt and complete release from the penalty of sins committed , and acceptance as righteous , to all who receive Christ Jesus as Lord and saviour ( Roman 5:1 ) .

                                                                     We believe that regeneration , or the new birth , is that gracious work of God where by the moral nature of the repentant believer is so changed  that he becomes a " new creatures  ( II Corinthians 5: 17 ) being " born of the spirit "  ( John 3:6, 8 ) and capable of faith , love and obedience .

                                                                 We believe that adoption is that gracious act of God by which the justified and regenerated believer is constituted a son of God ( John 1: 12 , Romans 8 : 15 ).

              We believe that justification , regeneration and adoption  are simultaneous in the experience of seekers after God , and are obtained upon the condition of faith preceded by repentance and to this state and work of grace the Holy Spirit bears witness.
