There is one
living and true God who is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable in his being, wisdom,
power, holiness, justice, goodness, loyal love and truth who is one in essence,
but eternally existent in three persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each
having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections, and each worthy
of precisely the same worship, confidence, and obedience.
Jesus Christ is God. He was born of a virgin, He led a sinless life, He died on
the cross, shedding His blood to pay the penalty we've earned for our sin, He
was bodily resurrected, He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and He will
return in power and glory.
People are dead and lost in sin. Those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus
Christ alone for their salvation are saved by grace.
The gospel (good news) is: Christ died to pay the penalty we owe for sin, He was
buried, and He was raised to life on the third day.
Neither baptism, nor partaking in communion, nor speaking in tongues is required
to be saved nor to continue to be saved.
Attending a specific church is not a requirement to be saved. Christ's Universal
Church is composed of all persons who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have
been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ
of which He is the Head.
Once we are saved nothing can take away that salvation. There is nothing we, or
anyone else can do, that will result in the loss of our salvation. However, there
are some who believe and claim they are saved, but they never were saved. (Tares
among the wheat.) In some cases we are not able, with our human abilities, to
discern who among those claiming to be saved are not truly saved.
The Bible is the inspired word of God, true in all that it claims to be true,
without error in the original manuscripts. It is our final standard of faith and
