(Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47)
We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere, and organized into local assemblies, called churches.
We believe in one God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(John 13:34-35; John 15:17, 1 John 4:7, Romans 13:8; Ephesians 4:2, 32; Colossians 3:14, Romans 15:7)
That man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
(Isaiah 53:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23)
That salvation—the forgiveness of sins—is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7)
That one receives salvation by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, and confessing Christ, and that the Bible commands every believer in Christ to be baptized by immersion.
(Romans 5:1-2; 10:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 2:38, 3:19; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21)
That those who have received salvation through faith in Jesus Christ are sent into the world to proclaim the gospel and to love and serve the world just as Jesus Himself did.
(2 Corinthians 5:11-21; Ephesians 2:10; Matthew 28:18-20; John 20:21)
