There is one true God, who is triune in nature, existing eternally as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the source of truth and the purpose behind all that exists around us.
Every man, woman, and child is created in the image of God. Meaning that every person who has ever lived is created as God’s most precious creation and is deserving of love and respect with no exceptions. In Adam, all of mankind has been separated from God, inheriting a sinful nature that compels us to rebel against our creator. We choose to chase after our own desires instead of living in the holiness of God. Due to our rebellion we are unable to free ourselves from the bondage of sin and are condemned to an eternal punishment without any defense to stand on.
In the Father (Salvation Established)
Outside of the construct of time, God the Father has planned and orchestrated all things together for The Glory of the God and the good of His creation. The Climax of His plan being the Salvation of man, which brings man back into relationship with Him.
In the Son (Salvation Accomplished)
Eternally existing along with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit, our Lord Jesus Christ took on the fullness of man in the incarnation, coming to earth as a man. Jesus lived a life here on earth without sin and in perfect love. While on earth He was crucified in our place, taking the fullness of the punishment that we deserve. Three days later Jesus rose from the dead as a picture of what would take place for all who place their faith in him. Jesus then ascended to the right hand of the father where he intercedes on our behalf awaiting to return and put an end to all evil and establish his new perfect world. Jesus alone saves!
In the Holy Spirit (Salvation Applied)
The Holy Spirit draws us to the father. He is the power behind Jesus’ resurrection and He leads, comforts, and bestows spiritual gifts and fruit on the Christian. The Spirit's presence brings assurance to us of our current salvation and He seals us until our final day on earth. We believe the Spirit enlightens us as we read God’s Word and empowers us as we serve, witness, and worship God.
The Holy Bible in its original writing was pinned by man and inspired by God. The Old and New Testament were preserved and translated throughout time by God's providence and are the final authority for faith and life. The Spirit leads and convicts us to keep Scripture as the lens that we view all of life through.
The Church is a spiritual group of people that is bigger than just one group of people meeting in one location. The Church universal, consists of people from every tribe, nation, and tongue and Christians from past, present, and future. The Church locally is a people who have been united by the blood of Jesus and are regularly gathering together to worship, sit under the Word of God, baptize new believers into the Church, and take communion together in remembrance of what Jesus has done.
As the hands and feet of Jesus we live in obedience to what Jesus has called us to, not out of obligation, but out of desire and gratitude for all that He has done for us. When we are walking in obedience to what Jesus has called us to, we are established as a community present in the world that offers the light of Jesus in a dark and evil world. We are actively seeking to be a current manifestation of what is to come when Jesus establishes a new world where God’s glory fills every corner.
God’s Kingdom is His rule and reign over all of the universe and it is particularly referred to when we speak of his ruling over those who see Him as their King. A person enters into the Kingdom of God when they place their faith and trust in Jesus. Although we desire to see glimpses of God’s coming Kingdom in the world around us, we know that God's Kingdom will fully come when Jesus establishes it at the end of this temporary world.
