This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24
GOD: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is the creator and ruler of the universe. God is love and desires that all men be saved.
God is perfectly holy and cannot have fellowship with sin. (Genesis 1:1, 1 Timothy 2:4, Habakkuk 1:13)
JESUS: The Son of God. He came
in a human body, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins and was raised from the dead. (John 1:1, 1:14, 3:16, 14:6)
HOLY SPIRIT: Part of the God Head. He makes intercessions on our behalf when we do not know what to pray (Romans 8:26). He helps
us to put to death the misdeeds of the body (Romans 8:13). The Bible tells us we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit when we are baptized.
THE BIBLE: The Bible is the complete, inspired word of God. It is through the Bible that God speaks to us today and is our rule in
all things. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
THE GREATEST COMMANDMENTS: "Love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourselves.” (Matthew
BAPTISM: Immersion in water. Some things that occur at Baptism: We are united with Christ (Romans 6:3-6). Our sins are
washed away (Acts 22:16). We are saved (Mark 16:15-16, 1 Peter 3:21). We are baptized into His Body (1 Corinthians 12:13).
THE LORD'S SUPPER: A memorial feast we observe each Sunday to remind us of the death of Jesus on the cross.
