"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit - just as you were called - one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all."
in NON- essentials:
"So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up."
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
-We believe...in the Triune God— God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
God the Father is the creator of all things visible and invisible. He is sovereign and loves all people.
God the Son (Jesus Christ) is God incarnate, born of a virgin, who died on the cross for all sins, was buried, and was raised from the dead on the third day. He ascended into Heaven and will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead.
God the Holy Spirit is an active and operating part of the Trinity who dwells in every Christian.
-We Believe...the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is inerrant and the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. It gives the perfect pattern of Christ’s Church and every effort should be made to restore it.
-We Believe... that Salvation is a free gift from God which comes by Grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
-We believe that baptism is the next step for a believer to publicly confess his or her faith.
-We Believe…that the Lord's Supper is an invitation to identify with Christ's death and ressurection in the power of the Spirit;
a remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice for our sins and His imminent return for His church.
-We Believe…that the Church of Jesus Christ was founded on the Day of Pentecost and is one universal body consisting of all disciples.
-We Believe…that Jesus is the Head of the church, and He places leaders in “Headship” for the purpose of governing the conduct of local believers.
-We Believe…that no one except God the Father knows the time or date that Jesus will return for His church, but it is a certainty that He will return, according to scripture.
