Grace. We believe that God created all things good. He created man and woman to share his image of righteousness and holiness. But through the fall of our first parents, Adam and Eve, all humanity now live in bondage to sin and misery. How can we be set free? Only by the grace of God. "You were dead in sins and trespasses.... But God made us alive together with Christ. It is by grace you have been saved" (see Ephesians 2:1-9).
