The Bible says there is one living and true God who lives forever as three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit (The Trinity). These three persons are distinct in their roles, equal in their positions and unified in their actions and goals.
(Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1,3; John 4: 24; Romans 1:19-20)
God, The Father
The Bible says there is God, the Father. He is an eternal spirit-person who is concerned about us and who hears and answers our prayers. He calls us to be reunited with Him by admitting our sin and asking His Son, Jesus, to remove sin from our lives.
(Matthew 23:9; John 3:16-17; I Timothy 2:5-6; 1 Peter 1:3)
God, The Son
The Bible says there is Jesus Christ, God's only Son. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was born to a virgin. He lived a sinless life, taught the truth of God and performed great miracles. His death is the only possible payment to free us from sin. He has risen from the dead, ascended into heaven and will return someday to take us with Him.
(Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; John l: 1; John 20:30-31; Acts 1:9-11; 2 Corinthians 5:21)
God, The Holy Spirit
The Bible says there is the Holy Spirit, a personal spirit who is our counselor and guide. He has been sent by God to reveal truth, convince people of their sin and separation from God, transform those who decide to commit their lives to God and empower them to live obediently to Him.
(John 14:14-17; John 16:7-14: Romans 8:26; Titus 3:5-6)
The Bible says it was written by faithful followers of God who were directed by the Holy Spirit. The Bible is God's Word, without error in its original writing, and is the ultimate standard of truth about who God is and what He wants from us.
(Psalm 119:1-16, 105; John 8:31-32; Acts 20:32; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
The Bible says that every person naturally chooses to rebel against God and go their own way (sin). Because of that, every person is separated from God and destined to live for eternity without Him. However, those who rely on Jesus' death to pay for the wrong things they have done and turn away from their own selfish desires will have a renewed relationship with God and will live with Him for eternity.
(Jeremiah 17:910; John 1:12-13; Romans 5: 6-8; Romans 6:9-10; Romans 8:8,13-14; Titus 3:5-7)
The Bible says there is a worldwide spiritual family of God (The Universal Church). It consists of all people who rely on Jesus' death to pay for the wrong things they have done and who dedicate their lives to obey God. We also believe in smaller local spiritual families (The Local Church), These families are members of the worldwide spiritual family of God, and exist to praise God through beginning a deeper relationship with Him, belonging to His family, becoming active in service and befriending others.
(Matthew 28:18-20: Acts 2:42-47: Ephesians 2:19-22: Hebrews 10:24-25)
Communion / Baptism
Jesus gave the Church two practices in the form of pictures that are meant to remind us and show others what God has done for us. The first "picture" is baptism. It tells those around us of the change God has started in us. When the person is submerged under the water it illustrates dying to our old life, then coming back up illustrates receiving new life and rising from the dead to live as a new creation.
(Matthew 28:18-20: Acts 2:37-38; Acts 8:36-39; Romans 6:4-6; Baptism/ (Comes from a Greek word meaning to submerge)
The second "picture" is called communion, or the Lord's Supper. This is meant to help us remember that Jesus died for us. The family of God shares bread, which is a symbol of Jesus' body, and wine (we use grape juice), which is symbolic of the blood of Jesus.
(Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:22-25; 1 Corinthians 10:16-17; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
The End Of The World
The Bible says that Jesus is personally coming back to earth to physically remove all true believers from the earth. Some will still be living and others will be resurrected from the dead. All people will face God's final judgment and will be declared innocent or guilty. Heaven and hell are real places and all people will spend eternity in one of those two places.
(Matthew 16:27; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:11; 1 Corinthians 4:5; 1 Corinthians 15:20-24, 35-58; I Thessalonians 4:14-18; Revelations 20:4-15)

|Our goal is to align our beliefs with God. After all, we will not be the final judge. We use the Bible as our inerrant and eternal standard of truth because we believe God gave it to us so that we could know His standards. The belief statements here are quick summaries of the standards given to us in the Bible.|
