We Believe that ANYONE, at ANYTIME, ANYWHERE can call upon The Name of The LORD and be Saved!
Romans 10:9-10 & Romans 10:13
” if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.  For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”  For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
