The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God. Its truths are absolute and still relevant to today’s world.
There is only one God and His Name is Jesus. Over time, God has revealed Himself to mankind in three manifestations: Father in Creation, Son in Redemption, and the Holy Spirit in Regeneration.
The man Jesus is the only way to salvation. He was the fulness of God robed in sinless flesh; 100% God and 100% man. He was born of a virgin and He lived a sinless life. He performed many miracles and taught extensively. But most importantly, He died in the stead of mankind on a rugged cross and paid our ransom for sin with His blood.
Though he died for our sins, Jesus rose from the dead three days after He was buried and He appeared to the Apostles several times instructing, teaching, and preparing them to evangelize the world. He then ascended to Heaven. Jesus left this earth in the clouds and He will soon return in the same manner. We believe that He will come to rapture, or catch away, His Bride, the Church. We also believe that there will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost. The saved will be raised to everlasting life; the lost will be raised to everlasting damnation.
Salvation was not the only thing purchased on Calvary. The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer. As the Bible says, “…By His stripes we are healed.”
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is given to all believers who ask for it. It is the power to live an overcoming life, i.e. a life above sin. The initial evidence of receiving the Holy Spirit is speaking in tongues. The long-term evidence is God’s working in a person’s life.
Jesus said that He came to give us life and that the life He gives is abundant and eternal. Abundant as in “over and above anything the world has to offer” and eternal as in “having no end.” Christianity is a lifestyle and when that lifestyle is lived according to Jesus’ teachings it is the most fulfilling, exciting, joyful, peaceful, positive, thrilling lifestyle one could ever possibly experience. We firmly believe that one’s true and full potential can never be reached outside of a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ!
