Statement of Faith
There is one God that has eternally existed in three persons…the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1; John 1:1-3; Hebrews 1:1-3; Deuteronomy 6:4: Ephesians 4:4-6; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 1 Timothy 2:5; John 14:9-10, 26; Matthew 28:18-19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Revelation 4:11
He is equal with the Father. He died on the cross as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people. He arose from the dead by the power of the Father. He is seated at the right hand the Father and will return again to earth to be King of kings.
Colossians 1:15; Philippians 2:5–8; Matthew 1:18–25; 1 Peter 2:24–25; Luke 24; Hebrews 4:14–16; Acts 1:9–11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16–18; Matthew 25:31–46; Revelation 11:15–17; 20:4–6, 11–15
Salvation is not received through good works, it is a free gift from God. It is received when someone repents of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his or her life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6,1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
The Holy Spirit
He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He is equal with the Father and Son. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live a Spirit led life.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13,14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12,3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1
It was written by men under the inspired guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. It is our source of wisdom to help us grow in our likeness and relationship with Him.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105; Proverbs 30:5
It is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ.
Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 2: 8-9; Matthew 28:19-20
