"To see every man, woman, boy, and girl that is part of this ministry develop to their full potential and serve with excellence in the area of their giftedness, creating an atmosphere of unity where lost people are drawn to Christ."
1. HOLY BIBLE
The Holy Bible, and only the bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible, and inerrant.
2 Timothy 3:16 | 2 Peter 1:20-21 | Romans 16:25-26
2. THE TRINITY
There is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and coeternal.
1 John 5:7 | Genesis 1:26 | Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19 | Luke 1:35 | Isaiah 9:6 | Hebrews 3:7-11
3. JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind, and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of his blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return in power and glory.
John 1:1, 14, 20-28 | 1 Timothy 3:16 | Isaiah 9:6 | Philippians 2:5-6 | 1 Timothy 2:5
4. THE CHURCH
The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus’ great commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22 | Hebrews 12:23 | John 17:11, 20-23
5. THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel. The Bible lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of biblical parameters.
Hebrews 2:4 | Romans 1:11, 12:4-8 | Ephesians 4:16 | 2 Timothy 1:5-16, 4:14 | 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40 | 1 Peter 4:10
6. TWO SACRAMENTS
Water Baptism: Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28:19 | Acts 2:38
The Lord’s Supper: A unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ) are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross.
Matthew 26:26-29 | Mark 16:16 | Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48 | 1 Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-25
7. SECOND COMING
Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures.
Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64 | Acts 1:9-11 | 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 | 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8 | Revelation 1:7
