ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living

Scriptural Reference: (2 Timothy 3:15-17)

 
ABOUT GOD
There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man.

Scriptural Reference: (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16)

 
ABOUT SIN AND SALVATION
Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We must repent of our sins, be baptized in the name of Jesus, and receive the Holy Ghost.

Scriptural Reference: (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 2:38)

 
ABOUT THE GOSPEL
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection)

Scriptural Reference: (2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4)

 
ABOUT CHRISTIAN LIVING
As Christians, we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today.

Scriptural Reference: (Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10)

 
ABOUT THE FUTURE
Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death.

Scriptural Reference: (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11 15)
