The Bible is God’s unique revelation of Himself to people. The Bible was written by human authors as they were inspired and guided by the Holy Spirit, and serves as the supreme source for understanding spiritual truth, reality, morality, and the final authority on all matters upon which it teaches.
Romans 1:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21.
Peopleare created in the image of God and will exist forever. The sin of Adam and Eve, along with the sins of each person, separates people from God and will cause them to live eternally separated from God in hell, unless people accept God’s free gift of the blood atonement of Jesus Christ through humble repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
The Church is the body of Christ made up of all believers who accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God and as their Savior and Lord. The Local Church is an extension of The Church and is made up of a group of believers who gather for worship, prayer, Bible teaching, and fellowship, all in an effort to fulfill God’s purposes for their lives.
