We believe in one eternally existent God who created all things and by whom all things exist. God has revealed Himself to us as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit, with distinct attributes but no division of nature, essence, or being. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh was both God and man.
(Deuteronomy 6:4;John 1:1-14;2 Corinthians 13:14;Genesis 1:26;Matthew 3:16-17,28:19;Luke 1:35;
Isaiah 9:6; John 10:30;Ephesians 4:4-6;Colossians 2:9;1 Timothy 3:16)
The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is true in everything it teaches. As the perfect Word of God, it is our only authority for what we believe and how we live.
god is one
There is only one mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, we believe that in Jesus Christ all the fullness of deity dwells bodily.
Father of Creation
Son of Redemption
Holy Spirit the Comforter
Three manifestations of God, but only one true God.
There is only one God. The only God has revealed himself to us as our Father, in his Son Jesus Christ and by the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that is, the only God manifested in and through an authentic human life. Seeing Jesus is seeing God.
(Deut 6.4,John 14.9,Eph 4.4-6, Col 2.9,1 Tim 3.16, 1 John 5-7)
sin and salvation
We all have sin and need salvation. Salvation comes by grace through Faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
the gospel and conversion
The Gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again on the third day. We express our belief in the gospel through our obedience to the gospel. We obey the Gospel and apply it to our lives.
1 - Repenting / asking God for forgiveness for our sins (death to sin)
2 - Being baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins (burial)
3 - Receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (Resurrection).
These three experiences were and still are the constant pattern of conversion in the early church.
(1 Cor 15.1-4;2 Thess 1.8;1 Pet 4.17;Mar 1.15;Acts 15.7;Rom 6.3-4;
baptism in water
We believe that our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is expressed by calling on his name in the waters of baptism. Baptism in water is an act of obedience that identifies with Jesus in the death of sin, the burial of the old nature, and the resurrection to a new life.
(Matthew 28:19,Acts 2:38,8:12, 16, 36-38,10:48, 4:33 p.m.,19:5,22:16,Mark 16:16,Romans 6:4,Colossians 2:12)
We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit and its accompanying gifts and characteristics of life produced by its indwelling are the privileges of all New Testament believers. Jesus spoke of two types of baptism: water baptism and Spirit baptism. Jesus himself was baptized in the Jordan River by John the Baptist. After his water baptism, the Spirit descended on Jesus. We must follow the example of Jesus and be baptized in water and in the Holy Spirit.
(Mark 1:7-11,John 14:16-18,Acts 1:5, 8, 2:1-4,38-39,4:31,8:17,10:44-45,19:6;
Deuteronomy 6:4,Isaiah 61:1,Matthew 28:19,Luke 1:35,John 5:21-23,John 14:10,John 14:16,
Romans 8:9-11,1 Corinthians 8:6,2 Corinthians 13:14,Hebrews 1:8-10,James 2:19)
