We believe in one, holy, eternal God (“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord;” Deuteronomy 6:4). This God has revealed Himself in many ways, but most clearly through the Written Word of the Holy Bible (“In many and various ways God spoke of old to our fathers by the prophets;” Hebrews 1:1) and in the person of Jesus Christ (“… but in these last days He has spoken to us by a Son…He [this Son] reflects the glory of God and bears the very stamp of His nature” Hebrews 1:2a, 3a; “He [this Son] is the image of the invisible God” Colossians 1:15a).
We believe the Word of God as recorded in the Old and New Testaments is infallible, and is sufficient rule and guide for living a Christian life (“All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe that mankind is of sinful nature, (“The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there are any that act wisely, that seek after God. They have all gone astray, they are all alike corrupt; there is none that does good, no not one.” Psalm 14:2,3), separated from God by this sin, (“…your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you so that He does not hear.” Isaiah 59:2), and in need bf being reconciled to God (“since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, they are justified by His grace as a gift through the redemption which is in Jesus Christ” Romans 3:23, 24).
We believe that Jesus Christ the Righteous, is He, who makes this reconciliation possible (“All this is from God, Who through Christ reconciled us to Himself…that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them…” 2 Corinthians 5:18,19; “For there is one God, and there is one Mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ…” 1 Timothy 2:5), and that there is no other way by which we can be made right with God (“Jesus said ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me.’” John 14:6; “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12).
We believe in the necessity of each individual entering into a personal relationship with God through faith n Jesus Christ, (“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God – no because of works least any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9); for although we are all God’s creations, it is only through this personal faith relationship that we can become children of God (“…to all who received Him [Jesus Christ], who believed in His name, He gave power to become children of God.” John 1:12).
