The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.
God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He is one God in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.

1 Corinthians 8:6
2 Corinthians 13:14
God the Father.
God is great: He is all-powerful, all-knowing, ever-present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, Holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is good. He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.
Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2
John 3:16; 4:24; 5:26; 14:1
Jesus is the Son of God.
Jesus Christ is completely human but, at the same time, completely God in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death that paid for our sin through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension/rising up to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory. He is the only plan for bringing people who are far from God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we can have life.

The Holy Spirit lives in each Christian from salvation.
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our need for a relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.

2 Peter 1:2
People will exist eternally with or without God.
Man was created to exist forever. We will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
John 3:16, 36
1 John 2:25; 5:11-13
Man is the supreme object of God's creation.
Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

Repentance is a commitment to turn away from sin.
Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression, he fell into sin. His only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ. Repentance is a commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ. Through repentance, we individually receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation.
Genesis 1:26-31, 3:17;
Acts 2:38, 3:19;
Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it.
The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.

Prayer is the key to everything.
Prayer is our ability to communicate with God. Through Jesus' salvation, we no longer need an intercessor to go between God and us; we can address Him directly. No monumental thing can be done without prayer preceding it and continuing through it.
1 Thessalonians 5:17;
1 Timothy 2:8
Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
Baptism is a symbolic act to publicly profess one's salvation. God commands it, but our salvation is not reliant upon it. We believe in full-immersion baptism, symbolizing the process of death and resurrection that Jesus went through for us.
The Church is a local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Christ. All born-again believers are members of His body, the Church. It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.
