About the Bible
The Holy Bible is the very Word of God to
all humanity. It was written by human
authors, supernaturally guided by the Holy Spirit. It is free from
error, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme truth for
beliefs and living.
Ps. 19:7, 119:9, Mat. 5:18, John 16:12-13, Rom. 15:4, 2Tim. 3:16-17, 2Pet. 1:19-21, 3:2
There is one,
and only one, living and true God. He is the Creator and Ruler of the
universe. He is holy and worthy of honor and love. He has eternally
existed in three distinct persons: the Father, the
Son and the Holy Spirit; equal in perfection but each executing
distinct yet harmonious offices in the work of redemption.
17:1, Exo. 15:11, 20:2-3, Ps. 83:18, 90:2, 147:5, Jer. 10:10, Mat.

1Tim 1:17, 1John 5:7, Rev. 4:11
Human beings were created to exist forever. We will either exist
eternally separated from God in Hell because of the sin of rejecting
Jesus Christ or in union with God in Heaven because we have received
forgiveness and salvation by trusting Jesus as our Savior. Heaven and
Hell are the only places of eternal existence.
Gen. 1:1, 26-27, Mat. 5:31-46, John 3:18-21, 5:24, 14:1-7, Titus 3:4-7, 2Pet. 1:4, Rev. 7:15-17, 20:10, 15
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God, was born of a virgin and is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice and substitute for the sins for all humanity by shedding His blood and dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death and God’s acceptance of His sacrifice. He ascended to Heaven and will return again to establish His kingdom and to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Mat. 1:18-25, Mark 10:45, Luke 1: 34-35, 2:1-21, John 3:15-21, 10:22-30, 19:28-30, 20:11-18, 1Cor. 15:3-6, Rev. 3:21, 20:1-6
Salvation is a gracious gift from God to humanity. Human beings can
never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by
repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, God’s offer of
forgiveness, can people be saved from sin’s penalty and have a place in
God’s family. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ
into their life by faith.
Because God gives those who sincerely repent and believe eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for 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.
Isa. 53:4-7, 55:1-7, John 1:12-13, 3:3, 6-7, 15-21, 6:37, Rom. 3:23-26, 6:3-14, 23, 2Cor 5:17-19, Eph. 2:1, 8-9, Col. 2:13-14, 1John 5
About the Church
The Church is the body of Jesus Christ who is its head. The Local Church is a fellowship of baptized believers, gathering together in a certain locality, bound by a covenant of commitment to common beliefs, to glorify Jesus Christ in worship, spiritual growth, and in evangelistic effort to proclaim God’s love through Jesus Christ. The Lord has given the Church two ordinances, the immersion of each believer in water (Baptism) as a symbol of their identification with Jesus Christ as Savior, and the Lord’s Supper which is a symbol of the sinless life and sacrificial, blood-atoning death of Jesus Christ.
Eph. 1:22-23, 4:11-13, Acts 2:41-47, 14:23, Mat. 28:18-20, 1Cor. 11:23-29
It is the responsibility and obligation of all believers to be witnesses to the grace of God and the Lord Jesus Christ in every area of our life, actions, attitudes, and words. It is the corporate responsibility and obligation of believers through their local church to proclaim the Gospel around the world by going and sending - going ourselves to those who have not believed the Gospel and sending others through financial and prayer support.
Mat. 28:18-20, Acts 4:34-37, 13:2-3
