GOD

There is One God who is omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent, and is revealed by the three distinct persons of the Trinity–God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the beginning and end of all things. He is the Creator of the universe and author of all life. All history moves toward Him and finds its culmination in His sovereign plan. (Genesis 1; John 1:1; Ephesians 4:6; Colossians 1:15-23; Revelation 19:6, Matt. 28:19; I Cor. 8:6)

 

JESUS

Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh – a fact proven by His virgin birth, sinless life, His works and words, His sacrificial atoning death on the cross, His defeat of the forces of darkness in hell, His bodily resurrection, His appearances to His disciples, and His ascension to the right hand of the Father. (Luke 1:26-38; Isaiah 7:17; Hebrews 4:15; John 14:9-11; Gal.1:4; Col. 2:15; Luke 24; Col. 3:1)

Jesus Christ is absolute Lord over all things because of who He is (God the Son) and what He has done. (Phil. 2:6-11; Heb. 1:4)

The only means of Salvation from eternal damnation and to life eternal with God in Paradise is by receiving and accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior. In doing this, an individual’s human spirit is born of God by the regenerative power of the Holy Spirit. (Rom 10:9-10; Acts 4:12; John 3:3-8; II Cor. 5:17)

 

THE BIBLE

The Bible, both the Old and New Testament is wholly authentic, fully trustworthy, and completely without error. There is nothing that can be added to it or taken from it. The Bible is the revealed word of God and is useful for teaching, encouraging, and correcting. The Bible is the good news of salvation and transformation for every man, woman, and child. (Psalm 19:7-14; II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:21)

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit was sent to guide, comfort and reveal truth. He equips, enables, and empowers believers to live out the ordained purposes for their lives. He is the one Person of God at work in the world today. (John 14:15-27; 1 Corinthians 2:10-16)

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to all believers and is freely given to all those who ask for it.  The Baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers each believer to do the works of Jesus Christ. It is further evidenced by the manifestation of the spiritual gifts. (John 14:12; Acts2: 1; I Cor.12: 4-11, Luke 11:13)

 

THE CHURCH

There is one Church of which Jesus Christ is the head. The Church is made up of every person who places their trust in the finished work of Jesus.

The Church’s purpose is to be God’s representative figure here on this earth – to bring the Good News of salvation to the lost, to heal the sick, to set the captives free from the bondage of the evil one, and to reestablish the Kingdom of God. (II Cor. 5:18-20; Acts 1:8; Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-18; Luke 11:1-4)
