The Bible

The Bible is the inspired Word of God without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives. (Psalm 19:7-9; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25)


Trinity

God exists in relationship with Himself for all eternity as one in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 61:1; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 14:10; 2 Corinthians 13:14)


The Father

God the Father is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, Holy and worthy of our trust and obedience. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is a good Father. He is loving, compassionate towards His people, and faithful to fulfill all of His promises. (Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2; John 3:16; Acts 17:28)


The Son

Jesus Christ is completely human, but at the same time, completely God. He is the only way to reconcile people back into a right relationship with God. He was born of a virgin,  lived a perfect life, by becoming sin for us to satisfy God’s requirement for the payment of sin. He defeated death in His resurrection so that all who believe in Him may have eternal life. (Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 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; Romans 6:23; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Gal 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15; 2:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 3:16)


The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides every believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, defends us, gives us spiritual gifts for the edification of the body of Christ, and makes us more like Christ. (Genesis 1:2; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Luke 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12; John 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:17)


Eternity

Mankind was created to exist forever and will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. But to be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence. (John 3:16, 36; Romans 6:23; 1 John 2:25; 5:11-13; Revelation 20:15)


Man

Mankind is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation and was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, mankind cannot attain a right relationship with God through our own efforts. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love. (Genesis 1:26-30; 2:7, 18-22; 3; Psalms 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6; 6:6; 7:14-25; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Ephesians 2; Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11)


Salvation

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 through our own efforts.(Isaiah 1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew 1:21; 27:22-66, 28:1-6; 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; 6; 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)


The Church

The Church is the body of Christ, a local community of people, baptized and unified through faith in Christ. The Church is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, seeks to share Christ as the anchor for the soul, firm and secure and works together in love and in unity, for 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; Hebrews 6:19; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3)


Hope Anchors The Soul.

Hebrews 6:19
