God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Genesis 1:1Genesis 1:26-27Genesis 3:22Psalm 90:2Matthew 28:191 Peter 1:22 Corinthians 13:14

 

Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 1:22-23Isaiah 9:6John 1:1-5John 14:10-30Hebrews 4:14-151 Corinthians 15:3-4Romans 1:3-4Acts 1:9-111 Timothy 6:14-15Titus 2:13

 

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.

2 Corinthians 3:17John 16:7-13John 14:16-17Acts 1:8,1 Corinthians 2:121 Corinthians 3:16Ephesians 1:13Galatians 5:25Ephesians 5:18

 

The Bible

The Bible is God's Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the ultimate source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.

2 Timothy 3:16-172 Peter 1:20-212 Timothy 1:13Psalm 119:105Psalm 119:160Psalm 12:6Proverbs 30:5

 

Humanity

Humanity is made in the image of God. Although God designed us to have fellowship with Him, we became alienated from God through disobedience. As a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and choose to sin against God. We are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through our own efforts.

Genesis 1:27Psalm 8:3-6Isaiah 53:6Romans 3:23Colossians 1:21Isaiah 59:1-2

 

Eternity

You were created to exist forever. We believe that forever is spent in one of two places: eternally separated from God because of sin or in union with God because of His forgiveness and salvation. When you die, you will either spend eternity in heaven or hell. Eternal separation from God happens in hell. Eternal union with God occurs in heaven.

John 3:161 John 2:25John 5:11-13,Romans 6:23Revelation 20:15

 

Salvation

Salvation is the free gift of God provided by grace alone, through faith alone, because of Christ alone, for the glory of God alone. Only through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God and experience true life and joy.

Romans 6:23Ephesians 2:8-9John 14:6John 1:12Titus 3:5Galatians 3:26Romans 5:1

 

Eternal Security

Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and eternal power of God that gives this security.

John 10:292 Timothy 1:12Hebrews 7:25Hebrews 10:10-141 Peter 1:3-5
