Nature of God—God is eternal, is infinite in power, possesses all knowledge, is holy, and indivisible. This one God has revealed Himself as the Father in creation; through His Son in redemption; and as the Holy Ghost, by emanation. God is also personal in that He is involved in and cares about our daily lives.
Jesus Christ—the one true God was made flesh and was born of the virgin Mary, and, “…in him (Jesus) dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9). Jesus according to His Father’s nature is divine; according to his mother’s nature he is human. He is both the Son of God, and the Son of Man.
Holy Spirit—the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the one true God. The Holy Spirit dwells in every Christian and is evidenced by the initial sign of speaking with other tongues. The Holy Spirit provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right and empowers believers with spiritual gifts for ministry.
Bible—The Bible is God’s Word and was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. As the Word of God, the Bible has the right to command our beliefs and actions.
Humanity—people are created in the image of God, to be like Him in character. Although people are the supreme object of creation and are meant to be in fellowship with God, we are separated from God by sin and need Jesus to restore that fellowship.
Church—the Church is the spiritual body of Christ on earth and is God’s primary way to accomplish his purposes on earth today including leading people to salvation and showing compassion to those in need.
Salvation—we are saved by grace through faith. Salvation is a free gift that we could never earn. But grace is acquired by faith. True biblical faith will cause us to follow and obey the Gospel. The biblical standard of full salvation is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking in tongues.
Eternity—without Christ we are sinners and destined to eternal separation from God. Because of Christ we can be cleansed from sin, reconciled to God and spend eternity with Him.
Holiness—God requires us to be holy and live holy. This is possible because of the work of grace in our lives, separating us from the ways of the world, and unto God.
