A. We believe in one God, eternal and uncreated, manifested to man in three distinct, co-equal entities as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is Creator, Sustainer, and Judge of all things. There are no other gods beside Him. He alone is worthy of worship.
B. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, was born of the virgin Mary, was crucified, died, was buried and was resurrected in the flesh. He ascended into Heaven. We believe He is now seated at the right hand of the Majesty on High (the Father) and is true God and true man. He is God and because He has redeemed us, all areas of our life and being are to be under Jesus’ Lordship. He is also Lord over the Church corporately. He is Lord of all. He is in us and we are in Him.
C. We believe that the Holy Spirit is true God, our Sanctifier, our Teacher, our Comforter, and our Enabler. He has come to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to perfect the Church, to empower us, and to bring us into all truth.
D. We believe in the sixty-six canonical books of the Bible (in their original writings) in all their parts to be the inspired and inerrant Word of God, and the only infallible rule for faith, conduct, and practice. All spiritual things are to be judged in accordance to them.
E. We believe in the personal unrighteousness of all people in their natural state.
F. We believe that there is personal salvation for every man, woman, and child through faith in the redemption wrought in Jesus’ death at the Cross. Salvation does not come through our merit or good deeds. Salvation comes only through the merits of the life and death of Jesus. And that such salvation through the righteousness of Christ is the only door to heaven for men, women, and children. No matter what ancestry, age, sex, or nationality, there is no other righteousness that avails in the sight of God.
G. We believe in baptism with water as the official mark and seal that a person belongs to God through Jesus Christ, and is part of the Kingdom of God. God is looking at the heart and its response at the moment of baptism. The act of baptism is not a “good work” that merits anything from God and is not a “requirement” for salvation. Repentance is necessary for all sins of thought, word, or deed. We believe all who have true faith in their heart in the Lord Jesus Christ are entitled to baptism with water.
H. We believe we are, in some spiritual unexplained way, partaking of Christ Jesus and His blessings in the Lord’s Supper. We remember His death for us and can receive healing and other blessings in the Supper. We believe that a person should honestly examine his heart before partaking of the Holy Communion with Christ, lest he take it in an “unworthy manner” and bring judgment to himself. The Lord’s Supper is a touch-point for renewing our covenant with the Lord Jesus and each other. The Lord’s Supper is for any born-again baptized believer, who is truly repentant and forgiving.
