The Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
Jesus Christ is God’s Son, begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, fully divine and fully human, the eternal and pre-existent Word of God. By His death Christ made full atonement for our sins, and by His resurrection showed Himself to be the Lord and giver of life to all who believe.
God offers forgiveness of sin and justification through faith in Christ Jesus apart from works. Salvation is not earned, rather received as God’s gift to individuals upon repentance from sin and faith in Christ Jesus. Through Christ, the believer becomes a new creation whose mind and will are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit, from loving sin, to loving the Lord with all of our heart, soul and mind, and loving people as we love ourselves.
Heaven is a place filled with the glory of God, so beautiful it’s beyond any earthly imagination. It is God’s dwelling place. Described by the Bible, heaven is the final destination of those who have put their faith in Christ.
Men and women were created in God’s Image as co-rulers under Christ, The Creator of heaven and earth. (Genesis 1:26-28)
All Christians, (Galatians 3:28) whether Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female (all one in Christ Jesus) are to minister to God’s world according to God’s Will, with the gifts given by God’s Holy Spirit as God sees fit, not as mankind sees fit. Submitting to God and each other as humble servants in unity, out of loving obedience to our Savior, we are to minister together here on earth as in heaven, giving the world a glimpse of God’s true created order until Jesus returns, fully and finally merging heaven and earth as one.
