  7. Eph 2:8-9 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.”  NIV

  1. 1 Cor 12:16 “For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body-whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free-and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.” NIV
  2. Rom 6:3-4 “Don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” NIV
  3. Mark 16:16 “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” NIV

Church

  1. Heb 10:25 "Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching."  NIV

 

Creation and Judgment

  1. 2 Peter 3:5-7 "By God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water.  By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.  By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.”  NIV

 

Jesus’ Return

  1. 1 Thess 4:16-18 “For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.  After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And so we will be with the Lord forever.  Therefore encourage each other with these words.”  NIV
  2. 2 Peter 3:7 “The present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.”  NIV

 

God (3 in 1)

  1. 1 Cor 8:6 “There is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.”  NIV
  2. John 14:26 “The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in (Jesus’) name, will teach you all things.” NIV
  3. John 16:13 “The Spirit of truth … will guide you into all truth.”  NIV

 

Lifestyle

  1. Gal 5:16-17 “Live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.  For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature."  NIV
  2. Gal 5:19-21 "The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.  I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God."  NIV
  3. 1 John 1:9-10 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives." NIV

 

Our mission

  1. Matt 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything (Jesus’ has) commanded you."  NIV
  2. John 14:12 2 “Anyone who has faith in (Jesus) will do what (Jesus’ has)  been doing.  He will do even greater things than these, because (Jesus’ went) to the Father.”  NIV
  3. Mark 16:17-18 “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."  NIV  (P.S. This text shows the powerful signs that accompanies those who believe.  This power is the power of God through His Holy Spirit. Concerning picking up snakes and drinking poison: This text is not intended to encourage deliberately putting your life in danger.  It is simply a promise for when things outside of your control happen.  An example is the accident with Paul and the snake.  See Acts 28:3-6)
  4. James 5:16 “Pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”  NIV

P.S. In summary, we believe in following every Word of God as recorded in the Word of God.  We believe in following the Bible and the Bible alone.  Because of this, every verse in the Bible could be listed in this list of beliefs.
