There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Deut. 6:4; John 17:3; Hebrews 4:13; Luke 1:37; Psalm 139:7-12; Romans 1:20; Genesis 1:1,26; Matt 28:19; John 1:1-2, 14; Acts 5:3-4; II Cor. 13:14)
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, inerrant in its original manuscripts. The Bible is our true, complete and final authority in faith and life.
(II Peter 1:20-21; II Tim. 3:16; I Cor. 2:12-13; John 17:17; Prov. 30:5-6)
God created humanity in His own image. The first humans sinned resulting in separation from God. Therefore all human beings are born separated from God and spiritually dead.
(Gen. 1:26-27; 5:1-2; James 3:9; Gen. 3:1-24; Rom. 3:23, 5:12-18, 6:1-23; I John 1:8)
Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is fully God and fully human. Jesus was crucified, died, rose the third day, ascended to heaven and is sitting at the right hand of the Father.
(Matt. 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13; I Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 1:9; I Peter 3:22)
God created humans in His the image, unfortunately the first humans sinned leading to physical death and spiritual death, which is separation from God, now all human beings are born spiritually dead and become guilty sinners in thought, word, and deed.
(Genesis 1:26,27; 3:1-24; Romans 3:25; 5:12-18; 1 John 1:8).
Jesus Christ, through His life, death, and resurrection, provides the only atonement for sin and victory over death. All who follow Jesus Christ are forgiven, set free from sin’s power, released from death’s grip, and made alive to God in Him.
(Isaiah 53; Matt. 20:28; John 3:16; Romans 3:24-26; 5:1; I Corinthians 15:3; II Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:7; I John 2:2; Matt 28:6; Romans 10:9; I Corinthians 15:14)
The Holy Spirit is a divine person, fully God, sent to indwell, guide, teach, comfort, and empower Jesus’ followers. The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.
(Luke 12:12; John 14:26; John 16:8)
All people who receive Jesus Christ by faith are born anew by the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. God’s children experience life changing transformation through His power enabling them to live righteously in Him.
(John 3:3,5; 1:12,13; James 1:18; I Peter 1:23; Eph. 2:8,9; Roman 6:22-23; John 10:10; 8:44; 8:31-32; Romans 12:1)
The Church is the body of Christ in the world commissioned to proclaim salvation in Jesus Christ and demonstrate God’s love to the world. The church is called by God to meet together for worship, teaching, communion, baptism, prayer, and fellowship. Baptism is the biblical testimony of the professed follower of Jesus Christ in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Those who partake in the Lord’s Supper should be followers of Jesus Christ, walking in faithful fellowship with Him.
(Hebrews 10:24,25; Acts 2:42,46,47a; Matt 5:13-16; Ephesians 4:11-13; Acts 2:28-41,47: Matt 28:18-20; Acts 8:36-40; 10:47; 18:8; Romans 6:3,4; I Cor. 12:13; Acts 2:42-46; I Corinthians 11:23-29)
We live in anticipation of the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. Upon His return there will be a bodily resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous. Followers of Jesus Christ will be raised to fellowship with God and everlasting joy. The lost will be condemned to judgment and eternal separation from God.
(Acts 1:11; I Thess. 4:16,17; John 5:28,29; I Cor. 15; II Cor. 5:10; Matt. 25:31-46; Revelation 20:4-6; 11-15)
