God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all the people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven, but will return again someday to take His bride, the church home.
The Holy Spirit lives in the life of every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek daily to live in His control. We believe in the Gifts of the Spirit, and that the should function in the everyday life of a Christian.
The Bible is inspired Word of God. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the guidebook for human living. It is the absolute truth without any mixture of error.
People are made in the image of God and are the supreme objects of God’s creation. Everyone has the potential for good, but we are born with a “sin” nature. This separates us from God until we repent and receive God’s Salvation.
Salvation is God’s free gift to those who accept it. We can never earn our salvation through self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our own ways and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Salvation gives us the promise of eternal life.
People were created to exist forever. We will either spend eternity separated from God by sin, or with Him through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell; to be with Him is life in Heaven. Both Heaven and Hell are real places!
