THE BIBLE The inspired, inerrant, infallible word of God. Full of truth, direction, and revelation from the creator himself. (2 Peter1:20-21) (2 Tim.3:16)

 

GOD All sufficient, self-existing, creator of heaven and earth, manifested in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1-1)

 

JESUS CHRIST The only begotten Son of God , born of a virgin birth, conceived by the Holy Ghost; nailed to the cross, shed His innocent blood to wash away the sin of mankind, died and gave up the Ghost; placed in a borrowed tomb, but three days later resurrected from the grave with all power; ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God. (John 3:16) (Matt. 27:32-66) (Matt. 28:1-6)

 

HOLY SPIRIT The third person of the trinity that empowers believers to effectively operate in their God-given gifts and talents and boldly preach the Gospel; comforts us, leads us, guides us, directs us, teaches us, brings all things to our remembrance. (John 14:26) (Luke 24:49) (Acts 1:8) (Acts 2:1-4)

 

MAN The climax of all of God's creation, made in His own image and likeness.

 

SALVATION According to scripture which is true, mankind was born into this world with a sinful nature, which separates us from God. In order to be saved, one must acknowledge and confess that he is a sinner, repent of his sins, believe that God has sent Jesus to die for our sins, and that Jesus rose from the dead. (Romans 10:9-10) (John 3:16)

 

BODILY RESURRECTION Jesus Christ himself shall return for the second time to resurrect the believers which have died, along with those believers which are alive, to everlasting life with him in heaven, and to resurrect the unsaved to everlasting damnation. (1 Thess. 4:13-17)

 

WATER BAPTISM After accepting Christ as Lord and Savior, we are commanded by Jesus himself to be baptized. This is where the new convert is completely immersed in water, thus identifying himself with Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. (Matthew 28:19) (Romans 6:3-6)

 

THE LORD'S SUPPER This is an ordinance that takes place among baptized believers, as a memorial of the death, burial, resurrection, and the anticipation of His bodily return to earth. The two elements used in this ordinance are. . . .

 

  1. The bread, which is symbolic of His body that was broken for us.
  2. The cup, which represents His innocent blood that was shed to wash away our sin.
