We believe that the Holy Bible was written by individuals divinely inspired by God. The bible is inerrant and infallible in its original revelation and provides all that humans need for 1) Doctrine, 2) Reproof, 3) Correction, and 4) Instruction in righteousness (II Timothy 3:16-17).
We believe that the scriptures teach that there is one true God who is the maker and supreme ruler of heaven and earth. There are three persons in the unity of the Godhead: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. They are equal in divine perfection and execute distinct, but harmonious offices in the work of redemption.
We believe the Humans were initially created by God as a perfect and Holy being, but voluntarily sinned against God. That sin caused all humans to be born in sin, thereby needing salvation.
We believe that salvation is only though Jesus the Christ and the redemptive work he completed on the cross. Upon verbal confession of Jesus, and belief that God raised Him from the dead, salvation is received (Romans 10:9-10). Salvation is a gift from God (Romans 3:23), and is not received because of our works, but because of God’s grace appropriated by our faith (Ephesians 10:9-10).
We believe that upon Jesus’ return the Father, He sent the Holy Spirit to be our comforter and complete the work outlined in the five Paraclete saying:
1) John 14:15-17, 2) John 14:25-26, 3) John 15:26-27, 4) John 16:5-11, 5) John 16:12-15.
We believe that the church (The Ecclesia) are those saved by God’s grace, called out of the world, but called to minister to the world, challenging them with the message of the Gospel.
