Statement of Beliefs
God the Father is the one God from before the beginning of time through eternity. There was no god before Him, nor will there be any god after Him. He is over all and through all and in all. He uniquely possesses the title, God. One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (Eph 4: 6) We speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. (1 Cor 2:7) Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. (Ps 90:2) Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. (Isa 43:10) For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. (1 Tim 2:5) Yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. (1 Cor 8:6) After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. (Mark 16:19) Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. (1 Cor 11:3) (All quotations are from the NIV.)
   
Jesus Christ is the only Son of God from before the beginning of time. The world was created though Him and for his purpose. By his death on the cross, He atoned for the sins of all that accept Him in faith as their Lord and Savior. By his resurrection, He overcame death. All salvation is through Christ. He is Deity in the fullest sense, just as the Father is. Thus, like the Father, He is God by attribute, meaning Deity. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made... The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. (John 1:1-3, 14) He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. (Col 2:13-14) Through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. (Col 1:20) Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6) Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. (Acts 4:12) For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form. (Col 2:9) Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped... (Phil 2:5-6)
   
The Holy Spirit is the third Person in the Godhead, and is fully Deity. Thus, God (Deity) exists eternally in three distinct Persons. Faith that makes salvation possible comes only through the Holy Spirit. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (John 14:26-27) Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Matt 28:19) May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. (2 Cor 13:14) No one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit. (1 Cor 12:3)
   
Feelings that contradict observable truth, that are not rational, are not from the Holy Spirit. We must test the spirits to see if they are from God. Why don't you judge for yourselves what is right? (Luke 12:57) I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. (Matt 10:16) Test everything. (1 Thes. 5:21) Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1-2) Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. (Acts 17:11) But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! (Gal 1:8)
   
The Bible is the Word of God. It is complete and accurate and conclusive on all doctrines of salvation. Although there is no doctrine of closed canon, and God can add to scripture at his will, there is no other scripture at this time that meets the criteria for scripture as the Bible does. Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'" (Matt 4:4) All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. (2 Tim 3:16) And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe. (1 Thess 2:13) The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever. (Isa 40:8; also quoted in 1 Peter 1:24-25) Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. (Matt 24:35) I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. (Matt 5:18) Scripture cannot be broken. (John 10:35) These words are trustworthy and true. (Rev 22:6)
   
Those who come to faith in Christ become sons and daughters of God, brothers and sisters of Christ, and will live forever as part of the eternal family of God. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12) He predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will. (Eph 1:5) You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. (Gal 3:26) Those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. (Rom 8:14) Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. (Rom 8:23) For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. (Rom 8:29) Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death - that is, the devil... For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. (Heb 2:14,17) Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers. (Heb 2:11) And so we will be with the Lord forever. (1 Thess 4:17) He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. (1 Thess 5:10) For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. (Eph 3:14-16)
