The Bible

The Bible is a God-breathed word that is the basis for all life and practice (2 Timothy 3:16)


There is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4).  God exists eternally in Three Persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  1+1+1=1 (John 14:6, Matthew 3:16-17).

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ walked around in a real place during real history.  He was born of a virgin and conceived by the Holy Spirit, making Him fully human and fully divine (Matthew 1:23).  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice for the sin of man by dying on the cross (Hebrews 4:14-16, Colossians 2:13-14).  Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again on the third day (1 Corinthians 15:3-5).  Jesus now sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven (Mark 16:19).


All people are created in the image of God and worth loving (Genesis 1:27).  That image has been forever broken due to the power of sin, and condemns humanity to eternal hell (Romans 3:23, 6:23).

Salvation comes by grace (free gift) through faith (loving trust) in the finished work of Jesus Christ upon the cross (Ephesians 2:1-10).  Christ died in the place of condemned sinners (Romans 4:25).  The follower of Jesus confesses with their mouth and believes in their heart that Jesus is Lord (Romans 10:9).

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is fully and completely God.  The Spirit indwells the redeemed sinner and convicts of sin (John 16:8), gives men gifts (1 Corinthians 12:7), brings people into God's family (Romans 8:15-16), and seals us unto the day of redemption (Ephesians 1:13-14).

The Church

The Church is the global family of God (Ephesians 4:5).  The local church is a geographic expression of the global reality (Galatians 1:2).  The Church exists to make disciples  (Matthew 28:19).  Baptism is a choice made by a Jesus follower to publicly show their allegiance to Jesus (Acts 8:26-39).  Communion is a symbolic act of remembrance and expectation taken by the followers of Jesus (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).

The End of the World

Jesus will return to claim HIs church (John 14:3).  Upon His return, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord (Philippians 2:10).  When Christ returns, sin will be no more.  Satan, the great enemy, will be cast down.  And the redeemed will be in Christ's forever kingdom.  We will finally be home (Revelation 21:1-5).
