You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all of your soul, with all of your mind and all of your strength.
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
A man who has friends must himself be friendly.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus.
God is the creator and ruler of the Universe; he has existed eternally as three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are equal and only one God.
Genesis 1:1; 26, 27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14
Jesus Christ is the Son of God, he is co-equal with the Father. Jesus Christ lived a human life without sin, and he offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world by dying on the cross. He rose from the dead on the third day, and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Mathew 1:22; 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-15; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14, 15; 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make mankind believe in their need of Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian since the moment of their salvation. He provides the Christian with: understanding to live, understanding of the spiritual truths, and direction for what is correct. He gives every believer at least one spiritual gift at the moment of their salvation. As Christians, we should live under his control everyday.
2 Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16, Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18
The Bible is the Word of God for us. It was written by different authors under the same supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme resource of truth for believing and for the Christian life. Because it was inspired by God, it is truth, infallible, without errors.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalms 119:105, 160; 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
Mankind was created in God’s image to be like Him in character. The human is the supreme object of God’s creation. Even though mankind has tremendous potential to do good, he is stained by the tendency to disobey God. This disobedience is called sin. Sin separates people from God and causes a lot of problems in life.
Genesis 1:17; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross is the basis for the forgiveness of our sins. So, salvation occurs only when a person puts their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ and believes that only His blood cleanses all sin.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; Galatians 3:26
We believe that baptism was established by Jesus Christ, giving us the example and later ordered to do it in the Great Commission.
We believe all Christians should live their life for Christ and not for themselves. Every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ by obeying the Word, praying, and living in the Spirit.
Ephesians 4:15, Romans 8:29
The church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the head. It is an organism originated and founded by Jesus Christ (Mathew 6:18). The members are those that have trusted by faith in the work that Christ has done. We believe that the purpose of the church is to love God, grow in his Word, make friends, serve others, and let others know about Him. (Mark 12:30; Colossians 3:23; 1 Peter 3:15; 1 Corinthians 12:27). He is the head of the body which is the “CHURCH”. (Colossians 1:18) “We are all members of that body and God himself has placed us in the body of Christ as he wanted them to be.” (Corinthians 12:27) “But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.” (1 Corinthians 12:18). The church also is the great family here on the face of the earth. “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household” (Ephesians 2:19).
