We do wholeheartedly believe...
A. In the supernatural and plenary inspiration of the Scriptures, that their teaching and authority are absolute, supreme and final. (2 Timothy 3:16)
B. In the Trinity of the Godhead: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 3:16-17, Mathew 28:19)
C. In the personality of God; the personality and deity of Jesus Christ, begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very Man; the personality of the Holy Spirit. (John 1:1-2, John 1:14, John 16:13-14, Luke 1:26-35)
D. In the resurrection of Jesus Christ; that His body was raised from the dead according to the Scripture, and that He ascended into Heaven and sits on the right hand of God as believer's advocate. (Luke 24:6-7, Luke 24:37-39, Acts 1:9-11, Hebrews 10:12, 1 John 2:1)
E. In the sinfulness of man: that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, are totally depraved and need a Savior from sin. (Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Psalms 51:5)
F. In the Atonement: that Jesus Christ became the sinner's sacrifice before God and died as the propitiation or payment for the sins of the whole world. (2 Corinthians 5:21, Romans 3:25, John 3:17)
G. In the necessity of the new birth; salvation is by grace through faith and not of works, saving faith will maintain good works in the life of the believer. (John 3:3-5, Ephesians 2:8-10)
H. In the literal resurrection of the body, both of the just and the unjust. (1 John 3:2, Luke 14:14, John 5:28-29)
I. In the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost. (John 14:1-3, Revelation 21:1, Revelation 22:7, Revelation 14:10-11)
J. In the evangelization of the world: the supreme mission of the church in this age is to preach the Gospel to all mankind. (Mark 16:15, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8)
According to God's Holy Word, the Bible, there is only one way to heaven...
Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by Me." John 14:6
Being a good person won't save you.
"For by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9
TRUST JESUS TODAY!

2. Be willing to turn from sin and repent...
"Jesus said: 'I tell you, nay; but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.'" Luke 13:5
"And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent." Acts 17:30

What to pray... "Father, I know that I have broken Your laws and my sins have separated me from You. I am truly sorry, and now I am turning from my past sinful life toward You. Please forgive me. I believe that Your Son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send Your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, to help me to avoid sinning again, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."

If you have received Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, as a Christian you should:
