Blood Atonement

We believe the lost sinner is guilty and already under just condemnation; that he is by nature alien to God and because of sin is condemned to die; that atonement for sin was effected through the mediatory office of the Son of God, Who, by Divine appointment, freely took upon Himself our nature, without sin; that He, through obedience of His earthly walk, personally honored divine law by keeping it, and, through His death on the cross, actually satisfied the penalty of the offended law by suffering in the sinners’ stead; that He, through His obedience and sacrificial death, make full and vicarious atonement for all sin; that He died, the just for the unjust, bearing our sins in His body on the tree; and that He, through the shedding of His blood on the cross of Calvary, evidenced eternal provision for cleansing, for pardon, for peace, and for rest.
