Our Beliefs

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three 
personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and 
are one God.
Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; Gen. 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matt 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless 
human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all the people 
by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His 
power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again 
someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

Matthew 1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; John 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14, 15; 1 Cor. 
15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14, 15; Titus 2:13
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the 
world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every 
Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for 
living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He 
gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to 
live under His control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; John 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 2:12; 1 Cor. 
3:16; Eph. 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Eph. 5:18
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the 
supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for
Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any
mixture of error.
II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160; Ps. 12:6; 
Proverbs 30:5
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People 
are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous 
potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God 
called “sin.” This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in 
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2

Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for 
our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as 
God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn 
from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins 
the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in 
that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. 
Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the 
Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.
John 10:28,29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; Hebrews 10:10, 14; 1 Peter 1:3-5
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from 
God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be 
eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal 
life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
John 3:16; John 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15; 1 Cor. 2:7-9.
