The Bible and Salvation
We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired word, given to man, whereby man can restore his relationship with God and find fulfilment and purpose in life.  It was never God’s plan for sin to ruin his perfect creation, but knew it could happen when he gave man both a soul and a free will to choose.  When man chose sin in the Garden of Eden and ushered in chaos, death and destruction, God was already prepared with the solution.  That solution was the eventual death, burial, and ressurection of his sinless son, Jesus Christ.  The Bible says “the soul that sinneth, it shall die”.  (Ezekiel 18:20 KJV)  We all have sinned and therefore must die.  But for those who accept Jesus Christ has their savior, God accepts Jesus’ death as a perfect substitute for ours.  We live because Jesus died, and in gratitude, we devote our lives to loving both Him and others.

We believe in the triune nature of God consisting of God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit.  This union is commonly referred to as “the Trinity”.  Although all are equal in deity, their difference comes in their relationship to one another.  God the Son hears his Fathers voice and obeys.  (John 5:19 & 30)   God the Holy Spirit empowers and Son and deflects all worship to Him.  Therefore, God the Father will forgive all sins of mankind except (1) blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (Mark 3:28-29) and (2) taking the mark of the Beast.(Rev. 14:9-12).  The baptism of Jesus is one example in the existence of the Trinity.  As Jesus was being baptized, the people heard the voice of God speak from heaven and saw the Holy Spirit descend on Jesus like a dove.  Just as the Trinity cooperates fully with each other without any sense of competition, so should the Church of model this supportive behavior.
Heaven, Hell, Sin & The End Times
God created man with a free will to choice.  We can choose Him and live a life reflecting His holy love and character, or we can choose His enemy, Satan, and live a life that pleases ourselves and rebels against the nature of God.  Our choice determines where we will spend eternity – either in heaven with God or in hell with Satan.  Therefore, it is basically true that “God doesn’t send anyone to hell”.  We actually sent ourselves when God honors the choice we make.  The Bible says that no man knows the day of Jesus’ return to take his children to their heavenly home, but it does give us warning signs.  Some of these signs include an increase in oceanic storms, earthquakes, lawlessness, and in the overall wickedness of mankind … all of which we see in abundance today.  As the contemporary Christian song says, “People get ready.  Jesus is coming.”
