GOD The one true God is the creator and sustainer of all creation. He has eternally existed in three persons - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
JESUS CHRIST Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is co-equal with the Father. He was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for our sins 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 to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
HOLY SPIRIT The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives in our lives the moment we become Christians, enpowering our discipleship and enabling our witness.
THE BIBLE The Bible is the divine inspiration and supreme authority of both Old and New Testament Scriptures. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit and is fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
HUMANITY Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin." This attitude separates man from God.
SALVATION Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works – only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
BAPTISM Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ.
COMMUNION Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus Christ to remember his sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant. The elements of bread and wine or juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation, rather, it is a declaration of a believer’s faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.
