One True God
There is one true God who is revealed Himself as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Mathew 28:19; Luke 3:22, NIV).
Authority of God’s Word
The Bible, both the 66 books of the Old and the New Testaments is inspired by God and is the revelation of God to man. These books provide everyone with a perfect treasure of divine instructions and narrate God’s purpose in the creation of the world, His plan for salvation in Jesus, and the standard by which He will judge the world at the end. The Scriptures are breathed by God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, written by men as the infallible authoritative rule of Faith and conduct (1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21, NIV).
Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, Who according to the Holy Scriptures:
- He Was Born of a Virgin by the Will of the Holy Spirit ( Mathew 1:23; Luke 1:31-35).
- He Was pure, spotless, and lived on earth filled with Holy spirit and without any sin (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22).
- He did Miraculous signs, healings, and wonders to accompany his claim as the Son of Man (Acts 2:22; 10:38).
- He was trialed by the Jewish high council, Judged without any blame under Pontius Pilate, and crucified for our sins, with the substitutionary finish of His work on the Cross (1 Corinthians 15: 3; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
- He descended to the earthly realms and was bodily resurrected from the dead on the third day (Mathew 28:6; Luke 24:39; Ephesian 4: 9-10; 1 Corinthians 15:4).
- He ascended into the heaven and is exalted above all name to the right hand of the God the Father (Acts 1:9-11; 11:2-33; Philippians 2: 9-11; Hebrews 1:3).
- He will come back in the same way and will make the final judgment for al (Acts 1:11; Romans 2:16; 2 timothy 4)
Fall of The Man
The man was created in God’s own image and likeness. He was good and upright, but by voluntary transgression fell from God’s glory and separation, thereby incurred of both a physical and spiritual death (Genesis 1: 26-27, 2:17, 3:6; Romans 5:12-19).
The gospel is the good news of Jesus with the power, authority, justice, and mercy of God’s kingdom. The gospel reflects, who we are and invites us to embrace Jesus and His work instead of our own. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, one can be redeemed as the sole foundation of their relationship with God. In short, the gospel confronts both sinners and the righteous who are attempting to establish a relationship instead to find their identity in the life and work of Jesus.
Salvation of Man
Man’s only Hope for redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Calvary, who is the risen Messiah and the Son of God living in the fellowship of the Father as one being and essence. Salvation is found in no one else; as there is no other name, under heaven given to men to be saved (Acts 4: 12, NIV). Salvation is received through repentance towards God and confirming once faith in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 24:47, John 3:3, Romans 10:13-15, Ephesians 2:8, Titus 2:11; 3:5-7). This is evident by the direct inward witness of the Holy Spirit, living in Holiness, and an outward expression to all men through righteousness (Romans 8:16; Ephesians 4:24; Titus 2:12).
