God Is One God

Presented in three personalities

God the Father Reigns Over All Creation

  • He directs the course of history according to His grace

God the Son

God the Father Reigns Over All Creation

  • was born of a virgin (Luke 1:34, Matthew 1:18, Isaiah 7:14)
  • lived a sinless life (1 Peter 2:22, Hebrews 4:15)
  • died an innocent death (1 Corinthians 15:3)
  • conquered death by His resurrection ( 1 Corinthians 15:4)

God the Holy Spirit

Inspired holy men of old to write the Bible

God the Father Reigns Over All Creation

  • exalts Jesus Christ in all things (John 16:14)
  • seals us to the day of redemption (Ephesians 4:30)
  • comforts and empowers believers (John 14:6, Acts 1:8)
  • bestows spiritual gifts for the strengthening of the church (1 Corinthians 12:1-11)

Salvation Is by Grace Through Faith

Salvation is essential for eternal life, as well as for church membership (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Baptism Is by Immersion in Water

While not essential for salvation, it is an act of obedience to Scripture (Acts 2:38, Romans 6:1-4) and therefore is necessary for membership in this church.
