The Bible is God’s Living Word written by men who were prompted to do so by the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the primary way to know God and is the way of life.
There is only One God Who exists co-equally and co-eternally as God The Father, God The Son Jesus Christ, and God The Holy Spirit. All things exist by and for Him.
God The Son Jesus Christ took on flesh by being born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, offered Himself up as the perfect sacrifice for our sins by dying on a cross, and rose again. He ascended to heaven where He sits at the right hand of God The Father, awaiting His physical return to the earth where He will judge the living and the dead, and reign as King forever.
The Holy Spirit
God the Holy Spirt convicts us of our sins and shows us our need for a Savior. He dwells within every Believer from the moment of salvation, and sanctifies us to be more like Jesus. The Spirit empowers us for Christian service and living, and give to all Believers Spiritual Gifts to accomplish His work.
Man, Sin, and Total Depravity
Mankind has been made in the image of God, but through our sin deserve eternal separation from Him through death and Hell. As a result, all are born with a sin nature, continue in sin, and are completely incapable of saving ourselves from our sin and its consequences.
Salvation And Christian Living
God alone can sovereignly save man as a gift of His grace received through faith in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This salvation forgives us of sin, restores us to a right standing with God, and gives us eternal life. Salvation is received and maintained by God’s power and grace, not through works- though those who receive will be known by their works and their love for one another, and will not take advantage of God’s grace and the freedom it gives to indulge in sinful activity.
The Church is the Body and Bride of Christ composed of all those He has saved on the earth. The Church is made up of many local bodies. It is God’s will for Christians to be a part of His Church, as the Church is His hope for this world until He returns.
Spiritual Gifts, Fruit, and Miracles
All of the Spiritual Gifts listed in the New Testament are available to the Church today as God sees fit. The Spirit gives every Believer Gifts to accomplish His work. Those who live by the Spirit will produce Spiritual Fruit. God hears and answers are prayers of faith according to His will, and has the unlimited ability to heal the sick and perform miracles today.
