He created everything and everyone, and He has a plan for every person. (Genesis 1:1)
He is the divine Comforter and Counselor sent by God to convict sinners and guide Christians, in whom He dwells. Believers must be open to God’s leading through His Spirit. (John 16:5-15)
The Bible is inspired by God, and is His unique, full and final authority on all matters of faith and Christian living. The central purpose of Scripture is to call all people into fellowship with God. (John 10:35; II Timothy 3:16)
All people are sinful and lost without a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Salvation is the result of believing in Jesus, repenting of sin, confessing Jesus as Lord, being baptized for forgiveness of sin and the gift of the Holy Spirit, and living by faith in the grace of God.
(Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 2:38; Romans 3:23; John 3:16)
The church is comprised of all those who have committed themselves to Jesus as Lord and Savior. The church is God’s people on earth, commissioned to proclaim His salvation, to worship Him, and draw all people into a relationship with Him.
(Matthew 28:18-20; I Peter 2:8-10; I Timothy 3:15)
He is the unique Son of God, who was born of a virgin, shed His blood for the sins of the world, was resurrected from the dead, reigns now with God in Heaven, and will return in power and glory.
(John 1:1,14; I Corinthians 15:3; I Timothy 2:5-6)

(II Peter 3:8-13; I Thessalonians 5:15-18;
