Our relationship with Jesus begins by responding to God’s offer of salvation by believing in Jesus for forgiveness of sin, eternal life, and the gift of the Holy Spirit. The response includes repenting of our old way of life and accepting our new call to follow Jesus. It includes the public act of baptism where we follow Jesus’s example and demonstrate our commitment to him by being immersed as an act of our own will.
Jesus chose a group of twelve men to be in his inner circle of relationships. He spent lots of time with these men, shared important conversations and events with them, and just lived daily life with them. We are committed to the type of genuine biblical community the first Christians practiced. This is best lived out in the context of small groups. We actively participate in these groups and serve as catalysts to connect others into them.
Jesus endorsed the practice of tithing (giving God the first 10% of everything we have). But he went further in challenging us to live financially generous lives. He cautioned against storing up wealth, challenged us to be wise stewards of what we’ve been given, and commended radical generosity. We seek to align ourselves with these biblical principles by living financially generous lives, starting with a tithe and moving toward a life of radical generosity.
Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He endured suffering, crucifixion, and death. On the third day after his death, he rose again. Following Jesus’ resurrection, he ascended into the heavens. Jesus will return one day to fully establish God’s Kingdom on earth, including the bodily resurrection and the promise of eternal life for those who believed.
(Matt. 1:20-23; Mark 15:24-25, 33-34; Mark 16:5-6; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thess 4:16-17)
Salvation is available to anyone who professes their faith in Jesus. His sacrificial death and resurrection reconcile people with God through the forgiveness of sins. Once someone comes to faith, they become an integral part of God’s family within the Church. Believers are to be baptized and regularly participate in communion with one another.
(Rom 10:9; John 3:16; 1 Pet 2:24; Col 1:20; Eph 2:19; 1 Cor 12:27; Matt 28:19-20; 1 Cor 11:23-26)
There is one God who exists eternally as three distinct but equally divine persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each person of the Trinity possesses all divine attributes and qualities and has unique roles in creation, redemption, and ongoing work.
(Matt 3:16-17; 2 Cor 13:14; Col 2:9; Heb 9:14; John 1:3; Eph 1:7-10)
Once someone comes to faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit indwells them, equipping and empowering them with gifts to build up the Church. Moreover, believers are privileged to experience a Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
(Acts 2:38; 1 Cor 12:4-7; Acts 1:5; Acts 8:14-17)
God intervenes in our physical, emotional, or spiritual ailments, bringing about restoration, wholeness, or relief. As believers, we should pray for healing, trusting God’s compassion and power to work in our lives.
(Matt 8:16-17; James 5:14-16; Phil 4:6-7; Mark 11:24)
The Bible is a collection of divinely inspired and infallible texts that reveals God’s love for humanity and his plan for redemption. It is authoritative for faith and practice.
(2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Pet 1:20-21; Heb 4:12; Rom 15:4)
