The Law (what God requires)

We believe the Law of God was delivered through the prophet Moses to the people of Israel. The Law shows what God requires man to do to be righteous and blameless before him. God’s Law is good and perfect, but it does not bring about salvation, for while it shows man what is required of him, it does not give him the power to perfectly uphold it. After someone is saved, not by performance through obedience to the Law, but by grace through faith in Jesus, they are to obey the commandments of God found in the Scriptures out of grateful joy. In short, the Law cannot save, but it does guide.
