THE HOLY BIBLE
The Holy Bible, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God and are without error in the original writings.
The Holy Bible is the complete revelation of God’s Will for the Salvation of all people and is the final authority for Christian faith and life.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17; Luke 24:27; Isaiah 55:11; Matthew 5:17-19; also Deuteronomy 30:11-20)
There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Isaiah 43:10-13, 45:21-22 ; Luke 4:16-21; Matthew 28:19-20)
Jesus Christ is God's only Son and is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
(Matthew 1:20-25; Philippians 2:5-8).
He lived a perfect sinless life.
(2 Corinthians 5:21)
He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures, and then He arose bodily from the dead on the third day, again according to the Scriptures.
(1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
He ascended into Heaven and is at the right hand of the Majesty on High, and is now our High Priest and Advocate.
(Hebrews 1:1-3, 2:17-18; I John 2:1-2)
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The ministry of the Holy Spirit on this earth is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, convict all people of their sins, and to indwell, seal and regenerate the believing sinner.
(John 16:8-15; Ephesians 1:13-14; Titus 3:5-6)
The Holy Spirit also guides, instructs and empowers the believer for Godly living and service.
(John 14:26; Acts 1:8)
All people are created in the image of God.
But because all people have sinned, we are all separated from God and need a Savior from our sins.
Only through believing that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and arose again, can a person have their sins paid for and inherit eternal life.

The shed Blood of Jesus Christ and His Resurrection provide the only foundation for Salvation, forgiveness of sins, and justification for all who believe.

Only those who have received Jesus Christ through faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.
(John 1:12-13; Ephesians 1:13-14, 2:1-9)
The true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been sealed by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ, of which He is the Head.
(1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 2)
