About God

God is the Creator, Ruler, Sustainer, and Redeemer of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are equal and are one God. God the Father loves us and desires that we have a relationship with Him as His children.
Genesis 1:1,26,27,3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14; I John 1:3

About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit of God. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He returned to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to welcome his people into eternity.
Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; John 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and Jesus, 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 the power for living God's ways, understanding spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved to be used to introduce others to God and help other believers grow in their faith. As Christians, we seek to live under His guidance and control daily.
John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18

The Bible

The Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the uniquely inspired God's message to humanity. 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.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21; Psalm 119:105,160,12:6; Proverbs 30:5


Salvation is God's free gift to us but we must accept it. Salvation is by God alone through Jesus Christ alone. We can never make up for 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 accept Jesus in faith, God saves us. One accepts Christ as Savior through a conversion process that includes the Biblical model of faith, repentance, confession, and baptism as responses of obedience.
Acts 2:38, 8:12, 10:47-48; Romans 5:1,6:23, 10:9; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6,1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26


Jesus commands us to profess our faith in him through baptism. Those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized (immersed) into Him. God promises great gifts to those who  unite with Christ through baptism.
“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." Acts 2:38
Romans 6:1-4
