There is one true and living God, Creator and Lord of the universe, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God, co-equal with the Father in majesty. glory, essence, and attributes. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He was raised bodily from the dead after three days to demonstrate His victory over sin and death, and He will personally and visibly return in power and glory to restore God’s kingdom in righteousness, holiness, and peace.
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son in majesty, glory, essence and attributes. He lives in every person from the moment they accept Jesus as their savior, and provides the Christian the power for living a life pleasing to God, the ability to understand spiritual truth, and spiritual gifts to be used in service to God.
About the Bible
The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is without error in all it’s teachings, and is the supreme and final authority in all matters of belief and conduct.
About Human Beings
All people are lost sinners and cannot have a relationship with God or eternal life apart from repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ as Savior.
Forgiveness of sin, reconciliation to God, and eternal life is a free gift from God, based on Jesus Christ’s death on the cross. We cannot earn our salvation by good works or self improvement. Salvation comes when a person confesses and repents of their sin and recives Jesus as their personal Savior. Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone.
About the Christian Life
Once we have received salvation we have been born anew, and are given everything necessary to live a life of holiness that honors God. We are called to the life long journey of growing in our faith. We will never be “perfect”, but are exhorted to mature in our faith, which is evidenced by an ever deepening intimacy with God and fruitful service in His kingdom work.
About Human Sexuality
God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of marriage between a man and a woman. Any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex.
Marriage is defined by God as the union of one biological male and one biological female. All other redefinitions of marriage (including but not limited to polygamous marriage and homosexual marriage) are against God’s will.
About the Church
The church is comprised of the universal church (all born again believers in Jesus Christ around the world) and the local church (which is a local group of believers who band together as a congregation to worship, to grow in their walk with God, to fellowship together as a spiritual family, and to use their spiritual gifts in unity to further God’s kingdom). There are two ordinances of the church – believer’s baptism (by immersion in water) which is a public declaration of the reality of being born again, and the Lord’s Supper in which the bread and juice symbolize the body and the blood of Jesus in His sacrifice on the cross for our sins.
About the Personality of Satan
Satan is a person, who was the angel Lucifer, and who was cast out of heaven because of his prideful rebellion against God. Demons are those angels who followed Lucifer in his rebellion and were cast out of heaven with Lucifer. They are Satan’s forces who carry out his evil directives against God and His church.
About the Eternal Destiny of Man
There are two possible eternal destinations for human beings – heaven or hell. Heaven is a real place where those who have trusted in Jesus Christ as Savior will live in the presence of God in perfect peace, goodness, and security forever and ever. Hell is a real place where those who reject Jesus Christ will be seperated from God and live in torment forever and ever.
