God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14
Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God´s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin". This attitude separates man from God.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2
About the new man in Christ.
If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature (creation) in the inward man. We are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus. We are partakers of His divine nature.
2 Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 2:10; and 2 Peter 1:4
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
John 3:16; John 2:25; John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; 1 John 5:11-12; Matthew 25:31-46
About Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven´s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords.
Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God´s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin´s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
About the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25
About the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
The ministry and baptism of the Holy Spirit are to glorify Jesus Christ and to indwell, guide, and empower believers for life and service. This baptism brings the power and gifts of the Holy Spirit and their uses to the forefront of the ministry of the body of Christ. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth and is evidenced by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance.
Matthew 3:11; Acts 1:8, 2:1-4
About divine healing.
The anointing work of Jesus Christ provides not only salvation but healing and prosperity for all believers.
Matthew 8:16 & 17; 1 Peter 2:24; 3 John 2
About the Bible.
The Bible is God´s word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
About the church – the body of Christ.
The true Church is the composition of all those who have been born again. Through the new birth, believers are united together as the Body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church.
Acts 20:28; Ephesians 1:22 & 23
About water baptism.
All who believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and have been born again are commanded to be immersed in water as a declaration that they identify with the death of Christ and have been raised with Him in newness of life.
The Lord's Supper, or Communion, is a symbolic expression of our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ as well as a memorial of his suffering, death, and prophecy of His second coming.
1 Corinthians 11:23-31
About blessed hope.
The blessed hope of the Church is the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation (catching away to Heaven) together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 11:27; Titus 2:13
About the final judgment.
There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosever's name is not found written in the Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire which is the second death.
Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; 20:11-15; 21:8
