God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal, each possessing the attributes of God.
Jesus Christ lived a sinless life on earth and faithfully paid for our sin by dying as our substitute. He rose from the dead demonstrating His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return to earth to consummate history. Jesus Christ is 100% God and yet 100% man.
The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He draws us to Christ for salvation. He also lives in every Christian and equips believers for personal growth and service.
We are created by God in his spiritual image to have fellowship with Him. We have defied God by choosing to go our own way. This disobedience, called sin, separates us from God. We need God’s saving grace to end our alienation from Him.
The Bible is God’s word to all of us. Human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit wrote it. It is the source of truth for Christian beliefs and living, and the final authority on all matters on which it bears.
Salvation is a gift from God which must be accepted individually by repentance and faith during our lifetime. We believe that when we accept Jesus Christ into our heart as our savior and confess to the sins in our life, at that moment we receive forgiveness and are saved. No human effort or good works can achieve salvation. (Luke 23:40-43; Acts 16:30-31; Romans 10:9-10)
Baptism is an outward sign of an inward change. It is the celebration of becoming a new person in Christ. It is our initiation into Christ’s holy church, our incorporation into God’s mighty acts of salvation and our new birth through water and the Spirit. (Acts 22:16; 1 Corinthians 12:13)
We were created for Eternity – to exist forever. We will either live in union with God through salvation or eternally separated from God. Eternal life with God begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith.
