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

About God

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.

Gen. 17:1, Exo. 15:11, 20:2-3, Ps. 83:18, 90:2, 147:5, Jer. 10:10, Mat. 28:19, Mark 12:30, John 4:24, 10:30, 15:26, 17:5, Acts 5:3-4, Rom 11:33, 1Cor. 2:10-11, 8:6, 12:4-6, 2Cor. 13:14, Eph. 2:18, 4:6, Phil. 2:5-6, 1Tim 1:17, 1John 5:7, Rev. 4:11

About Eternity

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

About Salvation

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

About Evangelism

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
