There is one God; eternally existing in the persons of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is our authoritative guide and rule for belief, church order and conduct.
The Lord Jesus became fully human through the virgin birth.
His life was sinless. He died in place of us on the cross to save us from eternal punishment.
His blood fully cleanses us from all sin. He physically rose and ascended into heaven.
He will return for believers before judging the world and establishing new heavens & earth.
The Holy Spirit now represents Jesus on the earth, brings conviction of sin, and causes new believers to be born into God's family.
He works to bring the believer into a holy life before God.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers the believer to live effectively for God.
All have sinned. The payment of sin is death. True repentance and faith in Jesus Christ results in forgiveness, cleansing, and justification before God.
Salvation: - God so loved the world that He gave His Only Son, so that whoever personally trusts and commits to Jesus should not die, but have eternal life.
Salvation cannot be earned in any way; it is God's grace, His undeserved free gift, to those who believe.
The Church is not a building. Although it represents all true believers in the world, it's expressed in the local gathering of Christians.
Jesus is Head of the Church, & the church is designed to show His fullness.(Eph.1:22)
Church life includes Believer's Baptism, Breaking of Bread, Worship, Ministry of God's Word, Evangelism, Prayer, Fellowship, Tithing, Gifts of the Spirit & Service.
Every Christian should be involved & under discipleship in the local church. God says, “Do not forsake the gathering of yourselves together.” (Heb 10:25)
Regarding "End Things", we believe in the imminent personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ to receive His people (Jn 14:3) before judgement on those who remain. (1 Thess 1:10)
Christians who are alive will not die, & those dead will be resurrected. (Jn 11:25,26) Heaven is the eternal home of all believers.
This present evil age, all sin, evil & death will be cast into the lake of fire forever. (Rev 20:15)
