(2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Proverbs 30:5, Romans 16:25-26)
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal.
(1 John 5:7, Genesis 1:26, Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19, Luke 1:35, Isaiah 9:6, Hebrews 3:7-11)
Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory.
(John 1:1,14, 20:28, 1 Timothy 3:16, Isaiah 9:6, Philippians 2:5-6, 1 Timothy 2:5)
Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary's womb; therefore, He is the Son of God.
(Matthew 1:18, 25, Luke 1:35, Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:27-35)
Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell; his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
(Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7, Romans 5:12-21)
We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts.
(Ephesians 2:8-9, Galatians 2:16, 3:8, Titus 3:5, Romans 10:9-10, Acts 16:31, Hebrews 9:22)
Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation.
(Acts 2:21, 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God's Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
(1 Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23, 2 Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, Romans 8:29, 12:1-2)
The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus' great commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the Church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22, Hebrews 12:23, John 17:11, 20-23)
Baptism: Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, Acts 8:12, 36-38, 10:47-48)
Lord's Supper: A unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and juice (the symbolic Body and Blood of Jesus) are taken in remembrance of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross.
(Matthew 26:26-29, 1 Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-25)
Marriage: We believe marriage is defined in the Bible as a covenant, a sacred bond between one man and one woman, instituted by and publicly entered into before God.
Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of death; eternal separation from God.
(Luke 24:16, 36, 39, John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4, Acts 24:15, 1 Corinthians 15:42, 44, Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21)
Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34, John 17:24, 2 Corinthians 5:1, Hebrews 11:16, 1 Peter 1:4)
After living one life on earth, the unbelievers will be judged by God and departed from Him in Hell, where they will be eternally tormented with Satan.
(Matthew 25:41, Mark 9:43-48, Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8)
Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a future time undisclosed by Scripture.
(Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8, Revelation 1:7)
