We believe God exists in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator and Ruler of all things, and He is eternal and perfect.
Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2; Romans 1:20; Philippians 2:5-11
Jesus was the Son of God; fully God and fully man. He was born of the virgin Mary, conceived by the Holy Spirit. He was crucified and rose again three days later. He ascended to Heaven. His death provides the only means of salvation. He will come again for his Church.
Matthew 1:22-23; Luke 1:27; John 1:1-5, 14; John 14:6; John 14:10-11; i Corinthians 15:3-4, Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17
The Bible, both Old and New Testament, are the inspired Word of God. They are complete and without error because they were written under the guidance of God himself. The Bible should not be edited. It is our source of absolute truth and connects us to God.
Deuteronomy 4:2; Proverbs 30:5; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Timothy 1:13
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit lives in the world, pointing men towards salvation. He lives in every believer from their moment of salvation, guiding and leading people to understanding and action.
John 16:7-14; Ephesians 4:13
Salvation is the free gift of God, through His son Jesus Christ. It is the only way to God, and Jesus’ sacrifice was the only payment necessary for our sins. Our salvation is eternal. It isn’t earned and can’t be lost.
John 3:16-17; John 14:6; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; John 10:29
Baptism is a personal identification with Jesus Christ. It symbolizes His burial and resurrection. We practice baptism by immersion. This is how Jesus himself was baptized, and the manner in which baptism was commanded in scripture.
Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:11-12; Acts 2:41
The Lord’s Supper
Communion consists of the bread and the cup. The bread symbolizes the broken body of Jesus, and the cup represents his shed blood. Communion is meant for believers, to reflect upon Christ’s sacrifice and examine ourselves.
Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-32
