GOD

There is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All three are equal in perfection and work together in perfect harmony. (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1, Romans 1:20; Ephesians 4:5-6)

God the Father is an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He cares about and loves people, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death everyone who comes to Him through Jesus Christ. (Revelation 1:8; Isaiah 43:10-11)

Jesus was sent by God the Father to live on earth; he was fully God and fully human yet had no sin. Jesus willingly laid down his life and, after three days, rose from the grave. In doing this, Jesus fulfilled the payment for the world’s debt of sin. (Matthew 20:28; Matthew 28:6; 1 John 2:2; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:7)

The Holy Spirit was sent by God the Father and Jesus to convict the world of sin and to empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. He lives in every believer and is a constant helper, teacher, and guide. (John 16:5-15; Romans 8:26-27)

PEOPLE

God created people in his image, and all people everywhere matter to God. (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 5:1-2)

All people are sinners by nature and by choice and need God’s forgiveness. (Romans 3:23)

Those who confess and turn from their sin, trusting in Jesus Christ, will be saved by grace and become children of God, with the promise of eternal life. (John 1:12-13; Romans 10:9; Ephesians 2:8-9)

THE CHURCH, THE BIBLE, AND THE RETURN OF JESUS

Jesus Christ is the head of the church and all those who believe in Christ are members. (Romans 12:4-6; Ephesians 2:19-22)

The Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error and it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Jesus Christ will return to earth to establish His kingdom and there will be a final judgment. (1 Corinthians 15; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15)
