The 66 books that make up the canonical Scripture were written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and are infallible truth and free from error in the original texts. It contains the whole counsel of God setting foth all that is necessary for God's own glory, man's salvation, faith, and life (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Peter 1:20-21).
THE HOLY TRINITY
There is only one God who reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity being a distinct person in the Godhead, but having no division of nature, essence, or being (Deut. 6:4,Matthew 3:16-17; John 1:14; John 10:30)
God created Adam and Eve as the first humans in his image and in a state of sinlessness. Having the ability to disobey God, they did so through the tempation of Satan. Upon disobeying God, they fell from their original righteousness and communion with God. Though the image of God was not destroyed, sin affects every part of man that it distorts the image of God and taints the whole of creation. (Gen. 3:13, Rom. 3:23, Rom. 5:12, Rom. 8:22).
Salvation from the guilt and effect of sin can only come from a perfect obedience and a sacrifice deemed appropraite by God. Since God is the only one who can meet those two criteria, Jesus the Son, came to earth in a human body to live a perfect life and give himself up as the appropriate sacrifice. He died the death that we deserved to die as penalty for our sins and lived the live we are unable to live. Anyone who repents and believes in what Jesus accomplished will be saved. Salvation is by grace through faith. There is nothing that we can do to earn our way to heaven (John 3:16-17; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9- 10; 1 John 2:2).
Baptism is one of the ordinances given to the Church by Christ. It is an act carried out by all who profess faith in Jesus. In baptism, the believer is washed in water signifying that God, by grace, has forgiven their sins because of Christ's shed blood in his sacrifice on the cross (Matt. 28:18-20, Acts. 2:38, Rom. 6:3-10, Eph, 1:7-8, 1 Pet. 3:21).
Lord Supper is the second ordinace given to the Church by Jesus Christ. Participation in the Lord's Supper serve two purposes: 1) It represents the remembrance of Christ and what He accomplished on the Cross. 2) It is a participation in the body and blood of Jesus. It is only those who have professed faith in Jesus that may participate in the eating and drinking (Lk. 22, Matt. 26, Mk. 14, 1 Cor. 10, 1 Cor. 11)
