God is the Creator of all things (Genesis 1:1-31, John 1:3, Romans 11:36, Colossians 1:16).
God is eternal in three persons- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17, Matthew 28:19-20, 2nd Corinthians 13:14).
God sent His only Son, Jesus, to this earth (Galatians 4:4, as both God and man) by a virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18) to live His life perfectly (Hebrews 4:15, 1st Peter 2.24), to die on the cross sacrificially (1st Peter 2:24, 3:18), to raise three days after His death (Matthew 28:1-10, Romans 1:4-5), and to ascend back to the Father all for His glory (Acts 1:9).
Jesus will return at an appointed time that God has already set aside (Matthew 24:43-44).
The Bible is the inspired Word of God (2nd Timothy 3:16).
Sin is real (Romans 3:23, James 4:17). We all have to deal with it. It separates us from God (Isaiah 59:2). Because of God's grace (Ephesians 2:8-9), He calls us to Him to be restored (1st Peter 5:10). Our response is to believe (Mark 5:36, John 3:16) confess His good name (Matthew 16:13-20, Acts 19:18, Romans 10:9), repent from our sins (Acts 3:19, 2nd Corinthians 7:9-10), and be immersed (Matthew 3:13-17, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:38). We then move towards living a life of joyful obedience trusting in the Father's ways (Psalm 112:11, Romans 6:17).
Communion is an important part of our weekly gathering (Acts 20:7). We take a piece of bread and a cup of juice to remember not just what Jesus has done for me, but what He has done for us (Luke 22:19-20).
We have elders as our spiritual leaders (1st Timothy 3:1-7) and deacons to fulfill the physical needs of the church (Acts 6:1-6, 1st Timothy 3:8-13).
