The one God is infinitely perfect and eternal and exists in three persons, showing forth as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
• GOD: We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes and perfections, and worthy of precisely the same worship, confidence, and obedience. (Matthew 28:18-19; Mark 12:29; John 1:14; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 1:4-6)
• JESUS CHRIST: Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is the complete fulfillment of everything promised in the Bible. Jesus put a face on the one true God who reaches out to us. His love for mankind was so great that He died for us on the cross and rose from the dead so that we may begin a reverent, eternal friendship with God. We believe that as provided and purposed by God and announced in the Bible, the eternal Son of God came into this world to manifest God to mankind, fulfill prophecy and become the Redeemer of a lost world. To this end, He was born of a virgin, and received a human body and a sinless human nature. He offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will someday return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. We believe that Christ became and remained a perfect man, sinless throughout His life, yet retained His absolute deity, being at the same time very God and very man. (Luke 1:30-35; 2:40; John 1:1-2; 1:18; 3:16; Philippians 2:5-8; Hebrews 4:15)
• THE HOLY SPIRIT: The Holy Spirit was sent to dwell within and fill each person who believes in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Those who believe in Jesus receive the Holy Spirit. Those who voluntarily and consistently obey the words of Jesus are filled with the Holy Spirit. His mission is to exalt Jesus and everyone who believes, by bringing to mind the significance of the words and works of Jesus, by pouring out the love of God in our hearts, by giving each believer gifts for service, by bringing light upon the true meaning of the Word of God, and by assisting us in prayer to the Father through the perfect mediation of Jesus. We believe that the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of the need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved, for the building up of the Church. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily. (John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; 2 Corinthians 3:17; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 1:13; 5:18)
