God is real. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, and totally in charge. He is Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He created everything and everyone, and every person matters deeply to him. Everyone has sinned, so everyone needs Jesus, who died for our sins, rose from the dead, and is coming back. Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
Heaven and hell are real, as are angels and demons, including Satan. The Bible, which is God’s Word, is both true and powerful. Baptism is when believers are immersed in water, as an act of obedience, for the forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit. Baptism is representative of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and it serves to tell the world we follow Jesus. Communion is a time to reflect on Jesus’ death and remember the sacrifice made for us.
Jesus established the church before His death, protects it through every age, and commissioned the church to tell the world about Him.
There is one God, existing in three persons: The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit. (Romans 8 & Ephesians 1: 13-14)
Because of His love for us, God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. (Romans 5: 8 & 1 Corinthians 15:20)
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and the authority of God's children. (2 Timothy 3:16)
Salvation is God's free gift to man. The death of Jesus on the cross is the only suffienct payment for our sins. All have sinned, but can be saved by Jesus. This grace is available to anyone who puts their trust in Christ Jesus as Savior. (Romans 3: 23, Romans 6: 23, & John 3: 16)
Those trusting in Christ Jesus should repent of their sin, confess before others their faith in him, and be baptized as an outward expression of their faith in Jesus. (Romans 10: 9 & Acts 2: 38)
The church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to continue to reach those that are far from God, helping one another become fully devoted followers of Jesus. (Ephesians 4: 1-16)
Jesus Christ will one day return and reign forever. (1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18)
