We believe in the one and only true God the father who sent his son to come and save us from the bondage of sin setting us free is the price he paid by his sacrificial death on the cross he purchased for all eternal life. So we are death to sin through the rite of baptism and renewing the promises made to the whole assembly at baptism we are continuously moving close to him on the cross where we lay down all our cares, our worries, our trials and our load so as to walk again with newness. We are alive with Christ as he saves us on the cross of Calvary, resurrected as the disciples that went to check the tomb but did not see him.
Newness of life is the way, when a person is joined to the savior he gets redemption the old being is not anymore, instead it is he that helps us to stop carrying about old ways, old friends are no more, we become transformed so he has accomplished for us the rewards of eternal life. As such when one is joined to Christ they try to imitate Christ ways, to copy his character, to behave how he should have behaved if he were in your shoes. Such that when this tent our body here on earth is no more we will be clothe with his heavenly body as such we are now likened to Christ that is why we are all Christians.
We all say we are Christians but we still do not conform to the norms, as Christians all of us are to imitate one person the savior even though it is a dogma, a mystery and a human sacrifice for all mankind. The mystery of the three persons in one God can never be fully understood so we continue to strive to follow the lead teacher, read about him and emulate will be helpful. Thorough education of the doctrine is required before people can stay at the table of God, welcome to the feast of heaven and earth, welcome to the table of plenty. During the doctrine classes the catechist takes time to prepare and instruct on the standard for life as a follower of Jesus. The Catechist is a Christian teacher especially one using a catechism, then the Catechumen is a Christian preparing for baptism, communion, or confirmation.
Christ has laid down his life to purchase for us eternal life!!!
