Core Beliefs

ABOUT GOD

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are co-equal and are one God.
 
 

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

 

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all 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’s glory and will return again someday to earth as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

 

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of baptism. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they become a Christian. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.
 

ABOUT THE BIBLE

 

The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
 

ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS

 

People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude that separates people form God and causes many problems in life.
 

ABOUT SALVATION

 

Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. Salvation and forgiveness of sins are achieved only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. The bible teaches that one receives God’s grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, l confessing Christ, and being immersed into Christ, but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation.
 

ABOUT ETERNITY

 

People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin,  or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
