Behold, the Lamb of God

The only way of salvation, the only message that saves sinners, is that Christ died for our sins. The death of Christ is the only possible payment to satisfy the God’s wrath against sin. It must be accepted individually, by faith alone

Contrasting Destinies

To return to the Old Covenant way is based on fear and terror as it was at Sinai for Moses and his generation. Today, we must press on to the future, to the bright and sure foundation of our faith, based on the Person of Christ.
