  • Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. The same came to him by night, and said to him, "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do, unless God is with him." (John 3:1-2 WEB)

His name is called "The Word of God." The armies which are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white, pure, fine linen.

THE HOLY SPIRIT: We believe that the Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5:3-4)! He has come to guide us into the truth, and to glorify Jesus Christ (John 16:13-14), as well as to make the world aware of sin (John 16:8) .

  • Don't grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. (Ephesians 4:30 WEB)
  • Now there are various kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are various kinds of service, and the same Lord. There are various kinds of workings, but the same God, who works all things in all. But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the profit of all. For to one is given through the Spirit the word of wisdom, and to another the word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit; to another faith, by the same Spirit; and to another gifts of healings, by the same Spirit; and to another workings of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discerning of spirits; to another different kinds of languages; and to another the interpretation of languages.

Furthermore, the Holy Bible is the authoritative Word of God, providing every answer for mankind's every need (2 Timothy 3:15-17) . The Word of God will last forever (Isaiah 40:8, Matthew 5:18) .

SALVATION: We believe that mankind is sinful by nature (Romans 3:23, 5:12, 7:18 John 3:19-20), and in need of a savior (John 3:16-17). Without our savior Jesus Christ, we will die in our sin (Romans 6:23) . We can not be saved by our works. We can only be saved by God's grace (Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:7) through faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9-10, John 5:24) .
  • For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23 KJV)

  • For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God didn't send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through him. (John 3:16-17 WEB)

  • "Most certainly I tell you, he who hears my word, and believes him who sent me, has eternal life, and doesn't come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. (John 5:24 WEB)

DUTY OF CHRISTIANS: We believe that it is the duty of Christians to go into the whole world, and to preach the Gospel to everyone. (Mark 16:15, Matthew 28:19-20) .
