We believe virtue is the fruit and evidence of a true and lively faith in Christ. We believe good works attend faith as light and heat from fire, and that it is impossible for a person who comes to rest in Christ alone for justification and life to fail to produce works in keeping with that faith. Christians are free in Christ from keeping the law for life, but they strive to keep the law from life, out of gratitude, for the glory of God who justified them.
