GOD: FATHER, SON, HOLY SPIRIT

God exists as one being manifested in three persons:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.

Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23; 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19

 

JESUS: THE SON OF GOD

Jesus Christ is completely human, yet at the same time completely God.  He is the only plan for bringing people who are enemies of God back into a right relationship with God.   He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection.  He defeated death in His resurrection so that we could have life.

Isaiah 7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16; 28:5-6; Luke 22:70; 24:46-47; John 1:1, 14; 10:30; 11:25-27; 17:1-5; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21;       Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15; 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16

 

THE BIBLE: GOD WROTE A BOOK

The Bible is God’s Word to all people.  It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Because it is inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.

Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11, 89, 105; Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 3:16

 

SALVATION: JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY

The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin.  Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.  Salvation is a gift from God and it cannot be earned by our own effort.   Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.

Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew 1:21; 27:22-28:6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24;Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31; Romans 1:16-18;3:23-25; 5:8-10; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17-20; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; Ephesians 2:8-10; Philippians 2:12-13; Hebrews 9:24-28; Revelation 3:20

 

ETERNAL SECURITY: YOU CAN'T LOSE IT

Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation through eternity.  Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.  It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.

John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10-14; 1 Peter 1:3-5

 

THE CHURCH: THE HANDS AND FEET OF CHRIST

The church is a local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Christ.  It is committed to the teachings of Christ, to obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the gospel to the world.  The church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.

Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 13:1-3; 14:23; 16:5; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32; Colossians 1:18; 3:15; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3
