He is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
He is the only begotten Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
He is co-equal with the Father and Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance to do what is right. As Christians, we seek to live under His control Daily.
The Bible is God’s Word to humanity. Human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit wrote it. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by the attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.”
Salvation is God’s gift of grace to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved from the penalty of our sin. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in fellowship with God is heaven. Heaven and Hell are literal places of eternal existence.
We believe that baptism by immersion in water is an outward sign of the inward work of salvation.
God does have a standard by which behavior and sexual activity may be measured and judged, approved or disapproved. God’s perfect plan for a man and a woman is to be found by going back to the very beginning in Genesis. Biblical marriage is between one man and one woman. Same Sex unions are not recognized or endorsed in scripture. Marriage covenant is recognized by a licensed ceremony with a licensed minister, not Common Law marriage
We practice tithing for the support of Christ’s body, the church, as God commands. We recognize that giving 10% of our income is the Biblical standard for giving.
