To introduce people to Jesus and help them become His fully functioning followers.
“AS CHRISTIANS, WE BELIEVE…”
…that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the only rule and guide of our faith and practice.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21
…that included in God’s plan of salvation are the following requirements for all believers:
Acts 2:38; 3:19
CONFESSION OF “JESUS AS LORD”
BAPTISM (by immersion) INTO CHRIST
Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-5
FAITHFULNESS TO CHRIST
I Corinthians 15:2; Revelation 2:10
…that believers should practice the partaking of the Lord’s Supper on a regular basis. The example of the early church implies that communion was practiced each Lord’s day. Acts 2:42; 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:18-30
…that the Holy Spirit is a gift to the believer at baptism. He is a part of the godhead of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He convicts, intercedes, consoles, and renews the believer. Acts 2:38; John 16:7-15; 1 Corinthians 12:1-13
