The Bible is God's Word to man. It was written by man under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is the truth without any mixture of error and is relevant to our daily lives.
( Proverbs 30:5, Hebrews 1:1-2, 2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21)
Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the trinity. He is completely man and completely God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of his blood. He rose form the dead on the third day, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory.
(Matthew 1:23, 1 Timothy 2:5, John 3:16, 1Corithians 15:3, 1 Timothy 3:16)
Jesus was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit in the virgin Mary's womb; therefore, He is the Son of God.
(Matthew 1:18, Luke 1:35, Matthew 1:25,
Luke 1:26-35, Isaiah 7:14)
Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression, he fell. His only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
(Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)
Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is also a part of Jesus’ work on the cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit.
(Psalm 103:2-3, Isaiah 53:5, Mark 16:17-18, Acts 8:6-7, James 5:14-16, 1 Corinthians 12:9; 28, Romans 11:29)
The church is the Body of Christ with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus’ Great Commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our
Lord Jesus Christ.
(Mark 16:15, Ephesians 1:22; 2:19-22, Hebrews 12:23, John 17:11, 20-23)
There is only one true God, known as the Father, Jesus Christ the son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and co-eternal. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19,
James 2:19, John 14:16-17)
Man is God's divine creation made in His own image. Man was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. We are all born with a sinful nature and choose to sin against God. Only the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God. (Genesis 1:26-30; 2:7, Acts 17: 26-31, Ephesians 2:1-22, Colossians 1:21-22)
Repentance is the commitment to change the way we think, and to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ. Through repentance, we receive forgiveness of sins and the opportunity to transform our lives by renewing our minds.
(Acts 2:21, 3:19; Romans 12:1-2, 1 John 1:9)
We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our self-improvement, good works, or human efforts. It is only by trusting in Him as God's offer of forgiveness that you can be saved from sin's penalty.
(Romans 5:12-19, Matthew 1:21, Titus 3:5-7, John 14:6, John 1:12, Romans 5:1)
It is the Father’s will for believers to become whole, healthy and successful in all areas of life. But because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on Earth. That fact, though, should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ’s provision in order to better serve others.
Spiritual (2 Corinthians 5:17-21)
Mental and Emotional (2 Timothy 1:7)
Physical (Isaiah 53:4-5)
Financial (Malachi 3:10-11, Luke 6:38)
Social (Matthew 5:43-48)
Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; those that are saved to the resurrection of life and those that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation.
(Luke 24:36-39; John 20:26-28, Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:42- 44, Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21, Matthew 28:6)
We believe that as we enter the waters of baptism, by faith, a very real transaction takes place in the realm of the Spirit. Baptism buries our old sinful nature and clothes us with Christ.
(Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38, Romans 6:3-4; Acts 10:47-48, Galatians 3:26-27)
A unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross.
(Matthew 26:26-29, 1 Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-26)
Man was created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence (Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20; Mark 9:43-48; John 3:16, 36; Romans 6:23; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 9:27; 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13; Revelation 20:12-15).
Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34; John 17:24; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; 1 Peter 1:4)
Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. At that time He will begin a time of eternal relationship with those who follow Him and eternal separation from those who choose not to follow Him. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures.
(Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7)
