Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see… ~Hebrews 11:1, NIV
The Scriptures-the Word of God-were written by men divinely inspired and revealed to humanity the principles by which God judges us.
The loving, just, merciful and omnipotent God of Isreal is Creator & Supreme Being of the universe. He is one deity manifested in three persons: God is Father to all who believe; as Son, Jesus christ was bord of a virgin, crucified and isen from the dead and is our Savior; and as the Holy Spirit, He is our Conforter, Guide, and Teacher.
Human beings were created in the image and likeness of God as innocent and free moral agents ; by free choice, mankind sinned against God bringing sin into the human race – only the grace of God can bring humanity into fellowship with God.
Salvation is offered freel to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; by His Blood, Jesus Christ obtained eternal redemption for the believer.
The church was founded and is owned by Jesus Christ; the universal church is the body of Christ and the local church is a body of baptized believers; given the mission of evangelism and edification, the church observes the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
The Kingdom of God
The kingdom of God includes both His general sovereignty over the universe and His particular lordship over the lives of men who willfully acknowledge Him as King; the full consummation of the kingdom awaits the return of Christ.
Go is the source of all blessings; all that we have and are we owe to Him, therefore we are oblicted to serve Him with our time, talents and material possessions and give cheerfully and liberally for the advancement of His Kingdom.
God, in His own time, will bring the world to its appropriate end; Jesus Christ will return in glory, the dead in Christ will be raised and all humanity will be judged by Christ. The unrighteous will be consigned to hell and the righteous will receive thier rewards and will dwell eternally with the Lord in heaven.
