God

  • God exists eternally in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matt. 23:19; John 14:16-26).
  • God is the absolute and sole creator of this world and the universe (Gen. 1:1-2:25; John 1:1-4).
  • God, because of His compelling love, sent Jesus Christ into the world to save sinners by His atoning death on Calvary (Isaiah 53:1-6; John 3:16; Rom. 5:8; Eph. 1:3-6).

Jesus Christ

  • Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man. 
  • He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. 
  • He revealed the mind of God in his teaching and performed miracles exactly as described in the four Gospels. 
  • He was crucified, died as the penalty for our sins and was raised from the dead, bodily, on the third day. He ascended to the Father. He is the head of the church and intercedes for believers. 
  • He is coming again personally, bodily and visibly to this earth. (Phil. 2:5-8; Luke 1:26-35; Heb. 4:14-15; 1 Pet. 2:21-24; 1 Cor. 15:3-5; Acts 1:9-11; Eph. 1:18-23; 1 Thess. 4:15-16; John 14:1-6) 

The Holy Spirit

  • The Holy Spirit lives by promise in the life of the Christian as God's pledge and seal of salvation (Jn. 16:3-11, 13-15; Acts 2:38, 5:3-4; Rom. 8 & 9)
  • The Christian is enabled to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God by the indwelling Spirit (Eph. 4:11-16; Col. 1:9-12; 3:12-17; Eph.1:5-21)

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, written without error and preserved for our instruction.
(I Cor. 2:7-14 II Tim. 3:16; II Pet. 1:20-21)


Salvation

Man's relationship with God has been broken by his own sin. We can be restored to a relationship with God only through the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ. Apart from Christ, man remains eternally separated from God, and is ultimately consigned to hell. This restored relationship is based on God's grace, not our efforts. God invites us to accept His gift of grace through faith in Jesus Christ. A repentant life, a confession of Christ's Lordship, and baptism by immersion are necessary responses of our faith as modeled in the New Testament. 

(Jn. 3:1-21; Acts 2:37-39, 8:26-39, 10:1-48, 16:11-34, 22:2-16; Rom. 3:21-31, 5:6-11, 6:1-23; 1 Cor. 6:9-11; 15:1-58; Gal. 3:l3-14; Eph. 2:8,9; Heb. 9:11-14; 10:10-13; 1 Pet. 3: 18; 1 John 1:8-10).


Baptism

We believe that baptism is by immersion into Jesus Christ. It is our natural response of faith and obedience when we choose to surrender to Jesus. In the New Testament Church, those who believed were baptized (immersed) into the name of Jesus. (Acts 2:38-41; Romans 6:3-7; Colossians 2:12; Galatians 3:26-27)
