God the Father is God. He is the Creator of all things and Preserver and Ruler of the universe. He is all-loving, all-just, all-wise and all-powerful. (Gen.1:1; Eph. 4:16; 1 Tim. 1:17)
- Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is God. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate his power over sin and death.
(1 Cor. 15:3-4; Phil. 2:5-11; John 1:1-18; Isa. 7:14)
- Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in all Christ-followers from the moment of salvation, providing them with power for living and guidance in doing what is right. (John 16:7-13, 4:24; Gal. 5:22-25; Gal. 5:22-25)
The Bible is the historical record of God’s activity written by mankind but inspired by God’s Spirit. It contains no error. It reveals the plan, purposes and will of God for all time.
(Psalm 119:105; 2 Tim. 3:16)
Salvation is the gift of God for all humanity and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. It was obtained by the substitutional death of Christ on the cross.
(Rom. 5:8-9, 6:23)
We believe the next best step after committing your life to Christ is baptism. Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change that has occurred in the life of the believer. It is identification with Christ by picturing his death, burial and resurrection.
(Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4)
The Lord’s Supper is a memorial service where we remember Jesus’ sacrifice. The bread and cup are symbols of His broken body and shed blood which were given for our salvation.
Men and women were created by a special work of God in His image and are the finest of all creation. They were created innocent, but with a free choice they sinned against God and fell from their original state.
(Gen. 1:27; Rom. 3:23)
