the bible...

the Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God in its original manuscripts. It is trustworthy in its teaching, and is the final authority for all matters of faith and practice. 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21

 

God… 

there is one God that exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 1 John 5:6-7

 

Jesus…

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross.  He arose after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to claim His own and take them to Heaven. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21

 

Holy Spirit… 

the Holy Spirit is God, living within a Christian. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 3:16

 

Man… 

man was created in the image of God, having great worth and free will. Man willfully sins against God and is consequently lost without hope apart from Jesus Christ. Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 30:19-20; 2 Peter 3:9; John 14:6

 

Salvation… 

salvation, the forgiveness of sins, is a gift from God. One who accepts Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, be baptized (immersed) into Him, and choose to live their life for God’s purpose. Acts 16:31; Luke 13:3; Matthew 10:32; Mark 16:16; Romans 6:1-4

 

The Church… 

Jesus Christ established his church to be one holy people, to glorify God, and to carry out his saving mission among all nations. Matthew 16:18; Matthew 28:19-20
