BIBLE. The Bible is made up of both the Old and New Testaments.
It is the inspired Word of God and in the original writings or autographs were
without error. The Bible was written by God through people with the guidance of
the Holy Spirit without infringing on any of the writers styles or characteristics.
(2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).
Is infinite, perfect and all-knowing Spirit.
(John 4:24) He is one in essence existing in three Persons – Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).
CHRIST. He preexist
with God and the Holy Spirit. (John 1:13) Born by virgin birth (John 1:14;
Matthew 1:1823), lived a sinless life (Heb. 4:15), died a substitutionary death
on the cross (2 Cor. 5:21), was bodily resurrected (Luke 24:36-43), ascensended
into heaven (Heb. 4:14-16), and is coming again (Acts 1:11). He is also the
conduit in which all creation was made in a literal six day period (John 1:3;
Col 1:16; Gen 1:1-2:1).
personality (John 16:7-15), and deity (Acts 5:34), and His indwelling of every
believer (1 Corinthians. 12:13; Rom. 8:9) and empowering believers in their
Christian life and service (Eph. 3:16; Acts 1:8; Gal. 5:22-23).
Created in the image of God (Gen.
1:26-28). His fall into sin resulting in spiritual death (Gen. 3:124; Rom.
5:12) and need of a spiritual new birth for his salvation (John 3:35).
Eternal salvation is by God’s grace alone
received as a free gift through faith alone in Jesus’ work on the cross, His resurrection
by God and is not based on our own works. (Eph. 2:89; Titus 3:57; 1 Peter
1:18-19). All who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ are changed from children
of wrath to children of God. (Eph 2:3; John 1:12).
CHURCH. The Church
is the body and the bride of Christ (Eph. 1:22-23; 5:25-32), composed of
believers of the present age (Church age) (1 Cor. 12:1213). The organization of
its members are for worship, edification of the saints, and evangelism. (Eph.
4:11-16, Matt 28:18-20). I believe that the dispensations are stewardships by
which God administers His purpose on the earth through man under varying
responsibilities. There should be no blurring or confusion of Israel and the
Church; God deals with each group separately and distinctly. (Gen. 12:1–3; John
1:17; Acts 2; 1 Cor. 10:32; Gal. 3:19; Eph. 1:10; Revelation 20:1–7).
LIFE. A Christian
walk (personal relationship with God) consist of righteousness, good works and separation from
the evil ways of the world (Rom. 12:12), manifested by speaking the truth
(James 5:12), maintaining the sanctity of the home (Eph. 5:22-6:4), settling
differences between Christians according to the Word of God (1 Cor. 6:18),
showing a Christ-like attitude towards
everyone (Rom. 12:17-21), exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) and
maintaining a life of prayer (Eph. 6:18; Phil. 4:6).
Christians should observe the ordinances
of our Lord Jesus Christ, which are:
of believers by total immersion (Matt. 28:19)
communion service, consisting of:
Washing of the saints’ feet (John
The Love Feast (1 Cor. 11:20-22, 33-34;
Communion of the bread and the cup (1
Satan was created by God as a perfect
cherub. He is described as being wise and completely righteous yet pride became
his downfall (Ez.28:12-18), he is also the great adversary of God and His
people (Rev. 12:1-10). He will be judge and thrown into the lake of fire (John
12:31; Rev. 20:10).
COMING. The personal,
visible, and imminent return of Christ to remove His church from the earth
before the tribulation (1 Thess. 4:16-17; 1 Thess. 5:9), and after the
tribulation will physically descend with the Church to establish His millennial
kingdom upon the earth (Rev. 19:11-20:6).
conscious existence of the dead (Phil. 1:21-23; Luke 16:19-31).
Resurrection of the body (John 5:28-29). The rewards and eternal life of the
saved (John 3:16; Rom. 14:10-12; 2 Cor. 5:10) and the judgment and eternal punishment
of unbelievers (Rev. 20:11-15; Matt. 25:46; Revelation 20:15).
exclusive model for marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in
covenant commitment. Marriage provides the framework for procreation and is
God’s foundation for the family. All other marriage practices (same sex,
polygamy) are sinful and outside of God’s revealed will. (Gen. 1:27,28,
2:18-25,Lev. 18:22-24, Prov. 5:15-23, Matt. 5:27,28, Rom. 1:24-32, 1 Cor.
5:9-13, 6:9-11, Eph. 5:22-33)
