the word of god

In it's original writing, the Holy Bible is the inspired, dependable, and without error word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining how we live our lives. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21)


the trinity

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and co-eternal, each possessing all the attributes of deity. (Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Hebrews 3:7-11; 1 John 5:7)


the son

Jesus Christ is the God the Son, born of a virgin. On earth, Jesus lived a life free of sin and offered Himself as the sacrifice for all of our sins by dying on a cross. He rose three days later and will someday return to Earth to reign as the King. 


the holy spirit

Given at Pentecost, the baptism of the Holy Spirit is the promise of the Father. It was sent by Jesus after His ascension to empower the Church to preach the gospel throughout the whole earth. (Joel 2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38, 39; 8:14-17; 10:38; 44-47; 11:15-17; 19:1-6)


SAlvation

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 good works or of any human effort. (Romans 10:9, 10; Acts 16:31; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Hebrews 9:22)


The church

The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus' Great Commission. Every person 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. (John 17:11, 20-23; Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)
