1.  ABOUT GOD

    God 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.    
    

Genesis 1:1,26,27,  3:22;   Psalm 90:2;  Matthew 28:19;1Peter 1:2;   2Corinthians 13:14

 

2.  ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

    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 all people 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’s glory and will return someday to earth

    to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
  

 Matthew 1:22-23;  Isaiah 9:6;  John 1:1-5;  14:10-30;  Hebrews 4:14-15;  
    1Corinthians 15:3-4;  Romans 1:3-4;  Acts 1:9-11;  1Timothy 6:14-15;  Titus 2:13

 

3.  ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

    The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.  He is present in the world
    to make men 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 in doing what is right.  He gives every believer a spiritual gift

    when they are saved.  As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.
    

2Corinthians 3:17;  John 16:7-13,  14:16-17;  Acts 1:8;  1Corinthians 2:12,  3:16;
    Ephesians 1:13;  Galatians 5:25;  Ephesians 5:18

 

4.  ABOUT THE BIBLE

    The Bible is God’s Word to  us.  It was written by human authors, under the supernatural
    guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.

    Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
    

2Timothy 3:16;  2Peter 1:20-21;  2Timothy 1:13;  Psalm 119:105,  160,  12:6;
    Proverbs 30:5

 

5.  ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS

    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 an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”.

    This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
    

Genesis 1:27;  Psalm 8:3-6;  Isaiah 53:6a;  Romans 3:23;  Isaiah 59:1-2

 

6.  ABOUT SALVATION

    Salvation is God’s free gift 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.  Eternal life begins the moment one

    receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
    

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

 

7.  ABOUT SANCTIFICATION

    We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to (following)
     regeneration (salvation), through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  It is brought about by
    the baptism with the Holy Spirit, whereby a person experiences the cleansing of the
    heart from the sin nature we were born with following a complete surrendering of the

    will to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
    

John 17:17-19;  Romans 15:16;  Ephesians 5:26;  2Timothy 2:21;  Hebrews 13:12;
    1Peter 1:2;  Isaiah 3:3;  James 4:8;  1John 1:7;

 

8.  ABOUT ETERNITY

    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 union with Him is eternal life.  Heaven and hell are

    real places of eternal existence.
    

John 3:16;  John 14:17;  Romans 6:23;  Romans 8:17-18;  Revelation 20:15;
    1Corinthians 2:7-9
