THE ESSENTIALS WE BELIEVE
1. ABOUT GOD. God is the Creator and the Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
2. ABOUT JESUS CHRIST. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and 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 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.
3. ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT. The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ.
4. ABOUT THE BIBLE. The Bible is God’s Word to us. It is the inspired, supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs.
5. ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS. People are made in the spiritual image of God to be like Him in character.
6. ABOUT SALVATION. Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it.
7. ABOUT ETERNAL SECURITY. God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity.
8. ABOUT ETERNITY. People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation.
