God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He is personal, infinite, and perfect. He has eternally existed in three personalities: The father, the son, and the Holy spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:26, Genesis 1:27; Genesis 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless human life and offered himself voluntarily as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead (literally) after three days to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He ascended into heaven to intervene for us before the father. He will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, Hebrews 4:14-15; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13
We believe in the total deity of the person of the Holy Spirit and that his ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. John 16:14
The Holy Spirit gives a new life to sinners when they believe and trust in Christ, baptizing the believer into the body of which Christ is the head. The holy spirit lives inside us, where he guides, instructs, comforts, and empowers the believer to be able to live a life set apart for God. The Holy Spirit convicts people of sin, of God’s righteousness, and of coming judgment.
Mark 13:11; John 14:26; John 16:13; Romans 5:5; I Corinthians 3:16; John 16:8-11
The bible is God’s word to us. It was written by human authors that were guided by the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; II Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160; Psalm 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must receive it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good words. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; John 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
Baptism is done by immersion after receiving salvation and in obedience to Jesus Christ's command.
Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 1:4-5; Romans 6:3-6; Galatians 3:27
We will observe communion as an act of remembering the sacrifice that Christ has made for all mankind. This act is done as an expression of our covenant with Jesus Christ.
Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:22-25; Luke 22:17-20; I Corinthians 10:16-17
