  1. You
    You are infinitely loved by The generous Almighty God who revealed Himself in the person of Jesus Christ and wants to be in relationship with you. When you receive this love, by receiving Jesus, you become a child of God. (John 3:16)
  2. The Bible
    The Holy Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the verbally inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God. We accept the Bible as our guide in all matters of faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12)
  3. The Trinity
    The one true God, is revealed in the Bible as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; Galatians 4:4-5; 1 Peter 1:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5:6-8)
  4. Man's Sin
    Man was created good, but fell from his original state into sin; he has no power to redeem himself. (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)
  5. Jesus Saves
    The all-sufficient atonement by the blood of Jesus Christ, God's Son, cleanses anyone who believes on Him from all sin, and salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone. (Romans 3:24, 10:8-10; Ephesians 2:8)
  6. Baptism
    Water baptism by immersion, as taught in the Bible, identifies the believer with the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4)
  7. Holy Living
    Holy living, separation from sin, and dependence upon God are mandated by God and are for the natural and spiritual benefit of the Christian. (Romans 12:1, Colossians 1:22; I Corinthians 3:16-17)
  8. Holy Spirit Baptism
    The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is a separate, distinct experience, subsequent to salvation, providing power for life and service. Speaking in tongues is a work of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:4, 10:44-46, 19:2, 6:18)
  9. The Church
    The church is the Body of Christ, chosen to reveal God's plan and purpose in the earth, and the local expression of this church must function according to New Testament order and organization. (Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23)
  10. Spiritual Gifts
    The manifestation of all gifts of the Holy Spirit in the local assembly is an act of God dividing the gifts amongst the believers severally as He wills. (1 Corinthians 12:1-31; Romans 12:3-6; Acts 1:4-8; Luke 24:49)
  11. Praise & Worship
    All expressions of praise/worship recorded in the Old and New Testaments are to be exercised in the local church and in private life. (Psalm 102:18, 81:1-5, 33:1, 135:3, 54:6, 18:3; John 4:20-26; Philippians 3:3; John 8:32; 1 Corinthians 14:14-15; 1 Thessalonians 5:18; Ephesians 5:19-20; 1 Peter 2:9)
  12. Jesus' Return
    The return of Jesus Christ for His Church is imminent and He will establish His Kingdom on the earth. (2 Peter 3:13; Isaiah 65:17; Revelation 21: 1-2; Matthew 5:17)
  13. Eternal Life
    The promise of eternal life is for all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and receive Him as their Savior, and eternal damnation is for those who reject Him and die in their sins. (Matthew 19:16, 25:46; John 3:15, 5:39; Romans 6:23; 1 John 5:11, 13, 20)
  14. Holy Communion
    The Eucharist '(thanksgiving) or the Lord's Supper is a memorial of our covenant made with God through the blood of Christ and His Body. (Matthew 26:26-29; Hebrews 9:18-29)
  15. Marriage
    The marriage rite is a sacred covenant made between a man and woman, and God. (Genesis 2:18-25;1 Corinthians 7:33-34; Hebrews 13:4)
  16. Excellence
    Excellence is the way of the Kingdom of God. (Job 37:23; Psalm 8:1,9; Psalm 16:3; Isaiah 35:2)
