THE PURPOSE AND THE PLAN OF GOD
We believe that the Bible records the scope of God's eternal purpose to redeem and restore humanity and all creation ... "I will be their God, and they will be My people.”
Ephesians 1:9-10; Romans 9:24-26
THE TRIUNE GOD
We believe in one living and true God, who is eternal, infinite, and perfect in glory and beauty, and in holiness, righteousness and truth, and in goodness and love. This one God is the sovereign Creator and sustainer of all that exists. In the unity of God, there are three co-equal and co-eternal persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:16-20
a. The Father: We believe in God the Father Almighty, the Creator and Ruler of the universe, who reigns with providential care over all of His creation and over the entirety of history. He is the all-loving, all-powerful, all- knowing, ever-present, and relational God who hears and answers prayer. Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2
b. The Lord Jesus Christ: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only Son of God, who is co-equal with the Father, who lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all who would place their faith in Him. He will return, and He will reign forever as its undisputed Sovereign, King of kings and Lord of lords.
Matthew 1:20-23, 26:64; John 1:1-5; I Thess 4:16-17
c. The Holy Spirit: We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make human beings aware of their need for Jesus Christ, and He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation.
John 14:16-17; Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word to us; it was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit; and it is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
2 Timothy 3:16, 1:13; 2 Peter 1:20-21
