There is one God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

About Jesus Christ

God’s one and only Son, the one and only Savior

John 1:14; 3:16; 1 John 4:9; 2 Peter 3:18

He was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary

Matthew 1:18; 21:11; John 1:14; 19:19; Romans 5:15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1; Luke 1:26-38

He suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate,

Luke 23:1-46​

He suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate (Luke 23:1-46), Who died and was buried, and who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day

Luke 23:44-24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8

He ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father

Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1-9; Colossian 3:1

He will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead

Matthew 24:35-42; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:10-11; 10:39-42; 1 Peter 4:5

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is an active and operative part of the triune God,

John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27

and indwells every Christian

1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14

About the Bible

God’s holy word, Scripture. We believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture and they were consequently without error

Mark 12:36; John 14:26; 16:12-15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21

We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice

Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12

About the Church

The Church was founded on the Day of Pentecost and consists of all Christians everywhere

Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47

About Church Leadership

The Bible teaches that the Elders are to exercise authority over the local congregation

Acts 20:28; Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4

About Salvation

We believe the Bible teaches that salvation – the forgiveness of sins – is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ

Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7

Because of our sin, we are separated from God. We have no way to get back into a right relationship with God on our own. Biblically, we learn that salvation only comes from Christ; because He was crucified and killed we can be reconciled (re-joined with) God. And, it is because He rose again that we can be justified (walk newly) with Him.

While God does the work, we respond. In the New Testament, we see people responding in four ways: Belief, Repentance, Baptism and Confession

BELIEVE: James 2:19; Mark 5:1-20; Luke 7:1-10
REPENTANCE: John 8:1-11; Mark 1:15; Acts 3:19
BAPTISM: Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-14; Hebrews 10:22 1; Peter 3:21; Ephesians 1:13-14
CONFESSION: Romans 10:9; Romans 10:10; Luke 9:57-62; Luke 14:25-35
