There is one true God – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – who are co-equal and co-eternal and function in perfect unity/oneness. Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, is the second Person of the Godhead; Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Godhead. God is also Creator of heaven, earth and humanity.
We believe that the Holy Bible (Genesis -Revelation) is the Word of the Living God, authentic, immutable, steadfast, inspired (God-breathed). It was written by holy men of old as they were moved upon and inspired by God, the Holy Spirit. We further believe that no prophecy in the Scriptures ever originated because some man willed it or by human impulse, but holy men spoke from God as they were moved and impelled by the Holy Spirit. We accept that the Bible is relevant for all times.
The second Person of the Godhead/Trinity came to earth in the form of flesh to redeem mankind. Born of the virgin Mary through Divine, miraculous conception. He perfectly and completely fulfilled the will of Father God. He willingly gave His life--it was not taken--to die the most horrible death of crucifixion. After Jesus' death, He was resurrected on the third day, ascended to Heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father. We believe in the visible return of Christ in fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
The third Person of the Godhead/Trinity was sent by the Father and the Son. Holy Spirit convicts and convinces unbelievers of their need for Christ and His redemptive work. He indwells and renews believers upon salvation. He is strength, comfort, counselor, instructor, advocate, helper, intercessor. He aides believers in understanding and applying the Bible. He encourages and empowers Christians to live a life of Christlike character and bear fruit for the God, the Father's glory.
Sin separates man from God. Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the only Son of God. Salvation is a work of God's free grace through faith, not human efforts. Salvation is available for all people through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
Is a demonstration that one has already been converted - an outward expression of an inward experience of accepting and committing to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We partake in the Lord's Supper by gathering with a community of believers, consume bread and grape juice as an act of remembering our Savior, Jesus Christ's sacrificial death for our sins.
