Humanity is made in the image of God. Because we are made in His image, we are unique among creation and have special worth derived from our maker. Made in God’s image, He defines our identity and we belong to Him. Our purpose cannot be separated from Him. 

Although designed by God for fullness and fellowship with Him, we alienated ourselves from God through disobedience. As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and choose to sin against God. Because we are spiritually dead in our sin, we are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through our own efforts.
