Learn more about CHCC's understanding of salvation

We believe that God’s way of salvation is found in the Bible. What you will see below is our understanding of what the Bible says is necessary for people to follow Jesus.

Hearing the Word of God

“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.”–Romans 10:17

Believing in Christ

“They replied, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you and your household.’”–Acts 16:31

Repenting of All Sin

“Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’”–Acts 2:38

Confessing Christ

“’Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.’”–Matthew 10:32

Being Baptized into Christ

“Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.”–Romans 6:3-5

Living the Christian Life

“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”–2 Peter 1:5-8
