The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. While the Bible was written by human, it was inspired by God through the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The greek word for “inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:15) literally means “God breathed”. Through archeology, history, prophecy and science, the Word of God is proven to be infallible.
(Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Proverbs 30:6; Matthew 5:18; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:10; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:18-19)
There is only one invisible, infinite God; who has revealed Himself as our Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. Jesus promises to dwell in those who are born again with His spirit.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:8; 1 Timothy 2:5, 3:15-17; James 2:19; John 1:1, 14, 18; Philippians 2:8; Matthew 15:25, 18:20, 28:18; Luke 7:48; John 1:3; Colossians 2:3, 9; II Corinthians 5:19; John 1:14; 2 Corinthians 5:19)
Due to the fall of man in the garden, we are born with a sinful nature causing a need of a savior. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. It is a free gift that we cannot earn through our works but rather receive through obedience to the word of God.
(Romans 1:28-32; 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9, Galatians 3:22, 1 John 1:8-10)
The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost (resurrection).
(1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; 10:44-48; 19:1-6; Romans 6:3-4, Galatians 1:6-12; 2 Thessalonians 1:8; 1 Peter 4:17)
As Christians, we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit and fruit of the spirit should be evident in our life. They are still for the church today.
(Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10)
Miracles have not ceased because Jesus Christ has not changed (Hebrews 13:8). Christ shed His blood for the redemption of our souls, the healing of our bodies and the restoration of peace to our mind. Believers are commanded to pray for the sick.
(Isaiah 53:5; Psalm 103:3, Mark 16:18; James 5:14)
The Church, born on Pentecost Sunday, is the body and bride of Jesus Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ and seeks to obey the Word of God. It is the desire for the church to share the whole gospel to the whole world. The Church works together, through love, truth, and unity, to glorify God and share salvation through Jesus Christ with this world.
(Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 13:1-3; 14:23; 16:5; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32; Colossians 1:18; 3:15; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3)
Jesus Christ is coming again to take away His bride, the church. In the end, there will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death.
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11,15)
