We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter. There is one and only one living and true God. Christ is the eternal son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.
Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself the demands and necessities of human nature and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of God. Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. All true believers endure to the end.
Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end. God, in his own time and in His own way will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and willdwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.
How To Become A Christian
Admit you need God's power because we have a problem with sin. "For all have sin and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
Believe in your heart and place your faith in Jesus Christ, trusting that he died on the cross to pay for your sins. "But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
Confess you sin and ask God for forgiveness. To confess Jesus as Lord involves agreeing with God about your sin and need for salvation. You must repent of your sin, turning away from the direction in life which you are going and to Christ. "If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9
