JESUS revealed in the Holy Bible.
We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men of God “were moved by the Holy Spirit” to write the very words of Scripture. The Bible is therefore without error (inerrant) in its original manuscripts. God has supernaturally preserved the Bible and it is the sole and final authority for faith and life providing encouragement, guidance, comfort and instruction for training in righteousness (2 Ti. 3:16-17; 2 Pe. 1:20-21).
Our faith in God’s Word also affirms that God is good; one God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; God created the first man and woman without sin; they disobeyed, making all people sinners, deserving God’s wrath; Jesus Christ is God’s Son, who entered the world and lived as a sinless man, died on the cross in our place to satisfy God’s wrath against sin and was raised from the dead the third day; through faith in Christ alone, apart from human efforts or acts, all who believe in Christ are made right with God and receive the gift of eternal life; the Holy Spirit brings new birth and empowers believers to live for God, by knowing and obeying His commands.
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself and should, by the power of the indwelling Spirit, allow Christ to manifest His life through him to God’s glory. By ever increasing obedience to the Word of God, each believer should mature and progressively become more like Jesus. In the power of the Spirit, each believer should live a holy life; not fulfill the lusts of the flesh; exercise his spiritual gifts to build up the body of Christ; witness for Christ; be personally involved in making disciples to fulfill the great commission; perform good works and bear fruit to the glory of God (Gal. 2:20; 1 Pe. 1:15-16; 2:11; 2 Co. 5:14-15; Ro. 6:11-13; Eph. 2:10; 4:11-12; 4:22-24; 1 Pe. 4:10-11; Ac. 1:8; Mt. 28:18-20; Col. 1:10; Jn. 15:8, 16).
