God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and are one God.
(Genesis 1:1, 26 & 27; Deuteronomy 6:4; Psalm 90:2; 1 John 5:7)
WHAT WE BELIEVE ABOUT
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He became a man having been conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the virgin Mary. He is the only person to have lived a perfectly sinless life; therefore He was able to offer His life as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of mankind when He died on the cross at Calvary. Three days later the power of God raised Him from the dead demonstrating His victory and power over sin, death, hell and the grave. He ascended to Heaven where He is today at the right hand of Father God.
(Luke 1:35; 1 Peter 2:21-25; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Ephesians 1:15-23)
baptism in the holy spirit:
On the Day of Pentecost the Disciples of Jesus received the gift of the Holy Spirit, just as Jesus had promised them. On the same day, as he preached to people from all over the world, Peter declared that the same gift of the Holy Spirit would be given to everyone who repents of their sin, is baptized for the forgiveness of sin and follows Jesus Christ. The Bible describes how the Holy Spirit is given to every Believer for many important reasons including: as a guarantee of our salvation, to assure us we are God’s own children, to empower us to live fully for God, to enable us to pray (including giving us a new prayer language), to give us various spiritual gifts and abilities and to empower us to be witnesses of Jesus Christ.
(Acts 1:4-8; 2:38-39; Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 Corinthians 12; Galatians 5; Romans 8:12-17;
the holy spirit:
The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make people aware of their sin and need for Jesus Christ as their Savior. He is also given as a gift to every Christian at the moment of their salvation. For the Christian He provides guidance and power to live right before God; He gives understanding of spiritual truths, and various gifts that enable Christians to serve God. The Bible encourages Christians to live under His control.
(John 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13)
The Bible is God’s Word to all humanity. Although various men wrote it down, they were completely inspired by the Holy Spirit. Therefore it is completely true, infallible and without error. It is full of God’s life and power. It gives instruction, correction and wisdom. Those who believe and obey it will fulfill God’s will.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17; Psalm 119:9 & 105; Hebrews 4:12; Isaiah 55:10-11)
God created people in His own image and placed them as rulers of His created world. Created with free choice Mankind chose to disobey God and so allowed sin and death into the world and into the heart of every person. The nature of every human being born is sinful and so everyone needs to be saved from their sin and the power of sin.
(Genesis 1:26-28; Genesis 3; Romans 5:12; Romans 3:23)
God’s love for people is so great that He doesn’t want anyone to perish; He wants us all to be saved and forgiven for our sin. He demonstrated His love for people when He gave His only Son, Jesus, who became a man, lived a perfect life and was punished for the penalty of our sin. We are saved from our sin and its punishment when we take responsibility for our sin, repent of it and receive Jesus as our Savior and Lord. This means a complete turn around in our life; we turn our back on living for self and sin and make the choice to live for God. God removes our old sinful nature and gives us a new nature – we are a new creation. This is the ONLY way for people to be saved – there is no other way.
(John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Acts 2:37-39 & 4:12; Galatians 2:16; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
Heaven & hell:
Our spirit was created to exist forever. After we physically die we will either exist forever separated from God by sin or forever with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be forever separated from God is hell. To be forever in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places that forever exist. (Matthew 25:31-46; Luke 16:19-31; John 14:1-3; Matthew 7:21)
To be baptized in the way the Bible teaches is to be completely immersed under water and then raised up out of the water. It is something every Christian does in obedience to God and for forgiveness of their sin. The water used for baptism is the symbol of a grave where our old sinful nature is buried (having been put to death with Jesus on His cross) and then raised up again in newness of life. Baptism is a public confession of our repentance of sin and our desire to live wholly for God.
(Acts 2:38-41; Romans 6:1-14; Acts 16:25-34; Matthew 28:18-20)
This world is completely corrupted by sin; humanity deserves and is bound for hell. No one can save themselves or any body else. Although it is God that we commit sin against He choose to love us unrelentingly and, through the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ, has made it possible for us to be forgiven of our sin, adopted into His family and made right with Him. This happens when we repent of our sin, believe in Jesus Christ and give Him the whole of our life. This is the gospel or good news. Heaven is described as a place where every tongue, tribe and nation of this world will be represented by those who have believed in Jesus Christ. Every tongue, tribe and nation MUST hear the gospel. It is the great privilege and responsibility of the Church to tell the whole world this gospel. Making Disciples is something every true disciple of Jesus Christ does.
(Romans 1:16; Acts 1:8; Mark 16:15-18; Revelation 7:9-10)
The Church consists of all who are true disciples of Jesus Christ, who is the Head of the Church. Sometimes known as The Body Of Christ, it is the expression of God in and through human form in the world today. God calls the Church to be united in Christ and filled with God the Holy Spirit to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ
(Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 2:19-22; Romans 12:4-5; Ephesians 3:20-21)
The gospel accounts in the Bible record many different miracles that God worked through His Son, Jesus Christ. We read in the book of Acts how this demonstration of God’s power continued in and through the lives of the early Christians. Before returning to Heaven Jesus told how His true disciples would also see God working miracles through them. (Acts 2:22; Acts 10:38; John 14:12-14; Mark 16:15-18)
jesus christ's second coming:
At a time and date undisclosed in the Bible and known only by the Father, Jesus Christ will physically and visibly come to earth for the second time to receive to Himself those who are His true disciples. Those who have not believed in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord will be left behind and eternally separated form God.
(John 14:1-3; Acts 1:9-11; Matthew 24:36-44; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Revelation 1:7)
The night before Jesus was crucified He celebrated the Passover feast with His disciples. During that time He used the elements of that feast to introduce a new ‘feast’ sometimes called The Lord’s Supper. He told His disciples the bread was a symbol of His body that would be broken for mankind, and the fruit of the vine represented His blood that would be shed for the forgiveness of sin. Believers in Jesus Christ are to remember His death in this way until He comes to earth the second time.(Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26; 1 Corinthians 11:27-34; 1 Corinthians 10:16)
