Thank you for stopping by on your search through the Internet!
We at Arlington are searchers as well.
We search together for truth, understanding, hope and love.
We invite you to consider joining us in that search as we seek to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ whom we believe holds the answers we are looking for.
We believe that for those who are searching, Arlington is a place to find answers. From those who have come to Arlington we have been told that you will receive a warm welcome. Come.
So also Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.” So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.” Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
