There is one true and living God. He is maker of all creation; all-knowing, all-powerful, everywhere-present, the eternal Father; the source of all goodness, truth, and love; who has manifested Himself in His Son, Jesus Christ, for the purpose of redemption and as the Holy Ghost for the purpose of intervening in the lives of people.
The original manuscripts of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are the Word of God given through people, and the Scriptures we possess today are the sufficient rule of faith and practice and the final authority for truth and salvation.
The gospel declares Jesus Christ to be the only begotten Son of God, who was born of a virgin and who lived to show us the word and works of God. As the Savior, He was crucified and died on the cross in our place to be the supreme sacrifice for sin. He was buried in a tomb but rose again on the third day, as the Scriptures foretold, and is now exalted as King of kings and Lord of lords. As God manifested in the flesh, He is true God and true man; in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead.
It was proclaimed on the Day of Pentecost on the birthday of the New Testament church, which includes faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, sincere repentance, water baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ, and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with the joyous experience of speaking supernaturally in other tongues - just as the believers did in the first century.
Holiness is both inward and outward, as a result of the working of God's grace in us, for the Word of the Lord declares that all who name the name of Christ should depart from sin and separate themselves from the evil practices of this present age.
Christianity is expressed through love for God and people, prayer, obedience to the Word of God, heartfelt worship and expressive praise, sharing our faith, commitment to our marriage companions and families, availability to help one another in times of need, honesty and diligence in our employment, honor and respect for our government as it submits to the divine plan for human society, and the dedication of our time, talent, and treasure to advance the kingdom of God on earth.
The Church was established by our Lord as a unique and special fellowship for all who believe. It is the spiritual community ordained for worship, stewardship, and service to God and people, of which every believer must become a part, for it is the body of Christ in the world today, displaying the same miraculous power and spiritual gifts experienced by the early church.
There will be a glorious appearing when our Lord shall come with the sound of a trumpet, when both those who have died in Christ and those who now live in Christ will rise to meet Him in the air to be with Him forever.
The wicked shall receive their punishment and the righteous shall receive their reward - everlasting life. Righteousness will ultimately triumph.
