    God

    We believe in an all-knowing, all-powerful, just and fair, and loving God. We believe that God created everything in this world and the pinnacle of his creation was humanity, man and woman. The ultimate purpose of man and woman is be in right relationship with God. God cannot tolerate sin. God manifests himself in three forms: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit (Gen. 1:1; 2:7; Ex. 3:14; 6:2-3; 15:11 ff.; 20:1 ff.; Lev. 22:2; Deut. 6:4; 32:6; 1 Chron. 29:10; Psalm 19:1-3; Isa. 43:3, 15; 64:8; Jer. 10:10; 17:13; Matt. 6:9 ff.; 7:11; 23:9; 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; John 4:24; 5:26; 14:6-13; 17:1-8; Acts 1:7; Rom. 8:14-15; 1 Cor. 8:6; Gal. 4:6; Eph. 4:6; Col. 1:15; 1 Tim. 1:17; Heb. 11:6; 12:9; 1 Peter 1:17; 1 John 5:7).

    Human Condition

    The pinnacle of God’s creation, man and woman, are created to be in relationship with God. Unfortunately, because of Adam and Eve’s sin, every human born of Adam and Eve have the tendency to sin. Humanity has broken the relationship with God. Since God is a just and fair God, he must punish sin. Every human has the tendency to sin in their life and must pay for their sins before a just God (Gen. 1:26-30; 2:5, 7, 18-22; 3; 9:6; Psalm 1; 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isa. 6:5; Jer. 17:5; Matt. 16:26; Acts 17:26- 31; Rom. 1:19-32; 3:10-18, 23; 5:6, 12, 19; 6:6; 7:14-25; 8:14-18, 29; 1 Cor. 1:21-31; 15:19, 21-22; Eph. 2:1-22; Col. 1:21-22; 3:9-11).

    Jesus

    Because of humanity’s tendency to sin and because God cannot tolerate sin, humanity’s sin must be atoned for. God gave humanity a way to pay for their sins, Jesus Christ. Jesus is God manifested as human. While being completely divine and completely human, Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life. Jesus was wrongly accused and put to death at the brutal hands of the Roman Empire. After being crucified and put into a tomb, Jesus rose from death after three days. Jesus’ divine qualities and victory over death is the reason he can serve as humanity’s substitution for sin before God (Gen. 18:1 ff.;Psalm 2:7 ff.;110:1 ff.;Isa. 7:14;53;Matt. 1:18-23;3:17;8:29;11:27;14:33;16:16,27;17:5;27;28:1-6,19;Mark 1:1;3:11;Luke 1:35;4:41;22:70;24:46;John 1:1-18,29;10:30,38;11:25-27;12:44-50;14:7- 11;16:15-16,28;17:1-5,21-22;20:1-20,28;Acts 1:9;2:22- 24;7:55-56;9:4-5,20;Rom. 1:3-4;3:23-26;5:6-21;8:1-3,34;10:4;1 Cor. 1:30;2:2;8:6;15:1-8,24-28;2 Cor. 5:19- 21;Gal. 4:4-5;Eph. 1:20;3:11;4:7-10;Phil. 2:5-11;Col. 1:13-22;2:9;1 Thess. 4:14-18;1 Tim. 2:5-6;3:16;Titus 2:13-14;Heb. 1:1-3;4:14-15;7:14-28;9:12-15,24-28;12:2;13:8;1 Peter 2:21-25;3:22;1 John 1:7-9;3:2;4:14-15;5:9;2 John 7-9;Rev. 1:13-16;5:9-14;12:10-11;13:8;19:16).

    Salvation

    Since God will one day judge humanity’s sin, we are given a choice. We can live our lives based on our own merit or live our lives with faith in Jesus Christ. Because of Jesus’ victory over death, he can serve as the substitute for our sins. God has given us Jesus as a substitute because he loves us. All humanity is offered a choice to put their faith in Jesus Christ or live life without serving Jesus Christ. All humanity must respond to the gospel, which is the good news of Jesus Christ’s death, burial and resurrection (Gen. 3:15; Ex. 3:14-17; 6:2-8; Matt. 1:21; 4:17; 16:21- 26; 27:22 to 28:6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:11-14, 29; 3:3-21, 36; 5:24; 10:9, 28-29; 15:1-16; 17:17; Acts 2:21; 4:12; 15:11; 16:30-31; 17:30-31; 20:32; Rom. 1:16-18; 2:4; 3:23-25; 4:3 ff.; 5:8-10; 6:1-23; 8:1-18, 29-39; 10:9-10, 13; 13:11-14; 1 Cor. 1:18, 30; 6:19-20; 15:10; 2 Cor. 5:17- 20; Gal. 2:20; 3:13; 5:22-25; 6:15; Eph. 1:7; 2:8-22; 4:11- 16; Phil. 2:12-13; Col. 1:9-22; 3:1 ff.; 1 Thess. 5:23-24; 2 Tim. 1:12; Titus 2:11-14; Heb. 2:1-3; 5:8-9; 9:24-28; 11:1 to 12:8; 14; James 2:14-26; 1 Peter 1:2-23; 1 John 1:6 to 2:11; Rev. 3:20; 21:1 to 22:5).

    The Church

    Jesus’ life serves as the model for those who have put their faith in him. Thus, followers of Christ are commanded by Jesus to go to all places on Earth to tell others about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Therefore, followers of Christ must come together in their worship of God and Jesus Christ (Matt. 16:15-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-42, 47; 5:11-14; 6:3-6; 13:1-3; 14:23, 27; 15:1-30; 16:5; 20:28; Rom. 1:7; 1 Cor. 1:2; 3:16; 5:4-5; 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Eph. 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:8-11, 21; 5:22-32; Phil. 1:1; Col. 1:18; 1 Tim. 3:1-15; 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Rev. 2-3; 21:2-3).

    Holy Spirit

    After Jesus ascended to heaven, the divine Holy Spirit was sent to those who put their faith in Jesus Christ. Everyone receives the Holy Spirit once they truly receive the gift of salvation from God  (Gen. 1:2; Judg. 14:6; Job 26:13; Psalm 51:11; 139:7 ff.; Isa. 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Matt. 1:18; 3:16; 4:1; 12:28-32; 28:19; Mark 1:10, 12; Luke 1:35; 4:1, 18-19; 11:13; 12:12; 24:49; John 4:24; 14:16-17, 26; 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4, 38; 4:31; 5:3; 6:3; 7:55; 8:17, 39; 10:44; 13:2; 15:28; 16:6; 19:1-6; Rom. 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Cor. 2:10- 14; 3:16; 12:3-11; Gal. 4:6; Eph. 1:13-14; 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thess. 5:19; 1 Tim. 3:16; 4:1; 2 Tim. 1:14; 3:16; Heb. 9:8, 14; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 John 4:13; 5:6-7; Rev. 1:10; 22:17).

    The Bible

    The Bible was compiled over a span of around 1,500 years. Each letter, writing, or book contained within was written under the inspiration of God’s divine authority. The Bible gives us the story of God’s redemptive work throughout history. Each follower of Christ is to use the Bible to learn more about God and his divine qualities. God speaks to his followers through the Bible and its message. The Bible is without error and its message and truths are applicable to our lives today (Ex. 24:4;Deut. 4:1-2;17:19;Josh. 8:34;Psalm 19:7-10;119:11,89,105,140;Isa. 34:16;40:8;Jer. 15:16;36;Matt. 5:17-18;22:29;Luke 21:33;24:44-46;John 5:39;16:13-15;17:17;Acts 2:16 ff.;17:11;Rom. 15:4;16:25-26;2 Tim. 3:15-17;Heb. 1:1-2;4:12;1 Peter 1:25;2 Peter 1:19-21).
