I believe in one God comprising the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. One God in the sense that they are one in nature, character, love, and power, but they are distinct in personalities. All were present at the creation of the world. All things were created by Jesus. Gen. 1:2 and Heb 6:2.
I believe in the incarnation of Jesus Christ--that He pre-existed before his birth at Bethlehem. He was conceived of the Holy Ghost, a fulfillment of prophecies in Micah and others. See Micah 5:2; Isaiah 9.
I believe in the inspiration of the Bible, that it is the Word of God, written by men as they were moved by the Spirit of God. 2 Pet 1:21.
I believe that salvation is through the merits of the blood of Jesus Christ alone which was shed at Calvary. We are saved by Grace and not by works. Eph. 2:8. I believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him as my personal Lord and Saviour.
I believe that Heaven is real. In my Father's house are many mansions. John 14:2. Jesus has gone to Heaven to prepare these mansions for His people.
I believe that Jesus Christ is coming back someday real soon. Matthew, Chapter 24, depicts the signs that would indicate the nearness of His return.
I believe in prophecies as depicted in the Bible. The prophecies in the Books of Daniel and Revelation clearly laid out what's going to transpire upon this earth just before the return of Jesus Christ.
I believe in baptism by immersion. Jesus set an example for us. He was baptized as a grown man by John the Baptist at the Jordan River.
I believe in the perpetuity and immutability of the Law of God. The Law of God is sometimes called the Decalogue or the Moral Law. This Law is eternal. It cannot be done away with. See Ps 111:11,12. God spoke this Law at Mt. Sinai, and in Psalm 89:34, it says that God will not break nor alter the things that is gone out of his lips. The Law is a transcript of God's very nature and character of love. It is holy, just, and good. Rom 7:12.
But did something get nailed to the cross when Jesus died? Absolutely.
Col 3:14 says "Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was
contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross." The ceremonial law,
also known as the Mosaic Law for it was written by Moses, not by God, was blotted out and nailed to the cross. We no longer need to sacrifice animals and celebrate feast days, etc., because Jesus' sacrifice on the cross was sufficient.

I believe in giving ten percent of my income for the work of proclaiming the
message of salvation. I believe that we are to give an offering in addition to the tithe and
how much depends on how we have been blest by the Lord. Mal 3:8-12. See Bible Plan for the Support of God's Work.
I believe in partaking of the Lord's Supper as well as the ordinance of humility
which Christ set as an example for us to follow in John 13:11.
I believe that the body is the temple of God and should be taken care of
accordingly. In everything that we do, whether we eat or drink, we are to give glory to God.
1 Cor 10:31.
