We teach that once genuinely saved, the believer is kept by God’s power and grace (1 Peter 1:3-5; John 17:11; 1 Corinthians 1:8-9) and that such a security is guaranteed by virtue of the intrinsic nature of eternal life (John 10:27-30), the intercessory ministry and advocacy of Christ for the believer (Hebrews 7:25; 1 John 2:1-2; Luke 22:32), and the indwelling ministry of the Holy Spirit in the believer (John 14:15-17; Romans 8:1-11; Ephesians 4:30).

Thus the believer is secure in Christ forever, there being no condemnation (Romans 8:1) and no separation (Romans 8:39). Having saved the believer apart from human merit (Titus 3:5; Ephesians 2:8-9), God will not reject those He has chosen (Ephesians 1:4) because of demerit in themselves, but He will present them faultless before the presence of His glory (Jude 24) conformed to the Image of Christ (Romans 8:29). He who is faithful in the calling will not fail in the consummation (1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:5).
