Bible is the inspired word of God and is without error.
It is the
final authority for Christian faith and practice.
is only one God. He created the world and exists in three persons:
the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Christ is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin and lived
a sinless life. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for
our sins. He arose from the dead and ascended into heaven and
will return again to establish his eternal kingdom. He will
judge the world, reward the saints, and rule for all eternity
are created in God's image. But all of us are marred by sin
and are separated from God and in need of salvation. Through
personal repentance and faith in Jesus Christ we are forgiven
our sins, reborn by the Holy Spirit, and restored into fellowship
with God. Those who have been reborn in Christ will live
with Him forever. (We can never earn our salvation through self-improvement
or good works.)
Holy Spirit persuades us to repent of our sins and confess Jesus
Christ as Lord. He lives in us, teaches us, equips us with spiritual
gifts for effective ministry and empowers us to live, grow,
and serve in obedience to God.
Church is the living Body of Christ on earth and comprised of
all true believers in Jesus Christ. He is the head and source
of the Church's life, which exists to glorify God. The Church
fulfills its mission by celebrating the glory and goodness of
God, cultivating personal growth in Christ, caring about one
another in biblical community and communicating the gospel in
word and action to the world.
