Holy Bible

The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It

alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original

writing, it is inspired, infallible, and inerrant.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26


There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy

Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal.

1 John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth,

Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived

a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, performed miracles, died on the

cross for mankind, and thus atoned for our sins through the shedding of

His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the

Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again

in power and glory.

John 1:1,14, 20:28; 1 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; 1 Timothy 2:5

Virgin Birth

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit

(the third person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary’s womb; therefore, He is

the Son of God.

Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35


Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell;

his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21


For anyone to know God, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is

absolutely essential.

John 6:44, 65; Matthew 19:28; Titus 3:5


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 efforts.

Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22


Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our

lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and

to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive

forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation.

Acts 2:21, 3:19; 1 John 1:9


Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His

Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ’s character in us. It is

through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that

the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

1 Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; 2 Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3,

Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11

Holy Spirit Indwells All Believers

Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and

live inside them by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their

lives over to Him thus making Jesus the Lord of their life as well as Savior.

They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for them when He died,

was buried, and rose again from the dead.

John 1:12; John 14:17, 23; John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelation 3:20

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, 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

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build

and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and

confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible’s lists of these gifts are not

necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations.

All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the

gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the

Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters.

Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12 :4-8; Ephesians 4:16; 1 Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6-7;

1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1 Peter 4:10

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 who is 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.

Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23


Baptism: Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is

commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of

the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48

The Lord’s Supper: A unique time of communion in the presence of God

when the elements of bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of the

Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice

on the Cross.

Matthew 26:26-29; 1 Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-25

Marriage: We believe marriage is defined in the Bible as a covenant,

a sacred bond between one man and one woman, instituted by and

publicly entered into before God.

Matthew 19:4-6


Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body

three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the

lost will be resurrected; those that are saved to the resurrection of life and

those that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation.

Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians 15:42, 44;

Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21


Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel

of Jesus Christ.
