We believe that He is the sovereign creator and sustainer of the universe and that ﬁnal judgment for eternity is of God. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God manifested in the ﬂesh. We believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin and lived the only perfect life without sin. We believe that Jesus Christ died for the sins of all men, was buried, bodily resurrected on the third day, and now sits on the right hand of God as the scriptures declare.
We believe that according to John 14:16-18 the Holy Spirit is the promise that Jesus said the Father (God) would send to be a comforter, a helper, to lead and guide us in all truth, and to live inside every born again Christian.
