Statement of Beliefs

1. GOD
God is the eternal, all-powerful, supreme creator and sustainer of the entire universe. God is one, composed of spirit and comprising a family presently consisting of God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son. God is a loving, kind, merciful being who wants to share His magnificent existence by reproducing Himself through man.

Psalm 19:1, 50:1, 6–7, Isaiah 44:6, Nehemiah 9:6, 16–17
John 1:12–13, 3:16, 4:8, Romans 1:20
Colossians 1:16, Hebrews 1:1–2, 1 John 3:1–2

The whole Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God containing His plan of salvation, and the record of His participation in history. The Bible is God’s revelation of knowledge that man cannot discover for himself. It is the foundation of knowledge, and the guidebook of life. The Old and New Testaments comprise God’s written Word, which forms the basis of Christianity as taught by the church and as practiced by the Christian.

Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4, Luke 4:4
John 17:17, Romans 8:16, 1 Corinthians 2:7–11
2 Timothy 3:16–17, 2 Peter 1:20

Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ, the Son of God, and the Son of Man. He was the prophesied Messiah of the Old Testament, and is described in the New Testament as being fully human and fully divine. As the second member of the God family, He has existed throughout eternity as the “Word.” He divested Himself of this power and His majesty, and became a human being to die for the sins of all mankind as our loving and merciful Savior. He was then resurrected, and ascended to heaven to become our High Priest. Jesus Christ shall return to establish the Kingdom of God on earth, and rule as King of Kings with His saints forever.

Deuteronomy 18:15, Matthew 17:15–17
John 1:1–14, 3:16, Acts 2:32–33, Romans 5:8
Philippians 2:7, Hebrews 4:14–15, Revelation 1:13–16

The Holy Spirit is the essence, power, mind, and spiritual extension and presence of God. God begets Christians as His sons and daughters through this Spirit. It strengthens a Christian spiritually, converts his mind, and serves as an earnest or guarantee of eternal life.

Acts 1:8, 2:38, Romans 8:9, 14, 1 Corinthians 2:16
Ephesians 1:13–14

Humans are physical beings with no inherent immortality, but they can receive eternal life as a free gift from God. Man was created by God to be wholly flesh and blood, yet in God’s image, and with a spiritual component added to his brain to compose the human mind.

Genesis 1:26–27, Job 32:8, 1 Corinthians 2:11
1 John 5:11–13
