that God descended and dwelt among us as Jesus Christ who, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. We believe that on the third day He arose again from the dead.
(Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1, John 1:14, Luke 1:35, Luke 2, John 3:16, Luke 23:23-25, All 4 gospels, 1 Corinthians 15:4)
that Christ is the Savior and Redeemer for all peoples and that the Holy Spirit convicts and converts all who believe in Christ.
that Christ calls us both by his teaching and by the prodding of the Holy Spirit to minister redemptively to the spiritual, physical, and social needs of individuals and communities.
(Matthew 9:35, Proverbs 14:31, Psalm 72:12-14, Luke 4:18-21, Acts 10:38)
that the Church functions as the physical body of Christ as we strive to be the presence of Christ within the world.
(Romans 12:1-8, 1 Corinthians 12:12-14, 27; Ephesians 5:29-30)
in the authority of Scripture. We believe the Bible, under the Lordship of Christ, is central to the life of the individual and the church. We believe the Bible is God-breathed and that it is useful for teaching, rebuking, correction, and for training in righteousness.
(2 Timothy 3:16, Psalm 119, Hebrews 4:12)
