“He must increase, but I must decrease.”
— John 3:30 NKJV

We Believe in

THE HOLY TRINITY 

We believe in the one living and  true  God, both holy and loving, eternal, unlimited in power, wisdom, and goodness, the Creator and Preserver of all things. Within this unity there are three persons of one essential nature, power, and eternity-the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Gen. 1:1; 17:1; Ex. 3:13-15; 33:20; Deut. 6:4; Ps. 90:2; Isa 40:28-29; Matt 3:16-17; 28:19; John 1:1-2; 4:24; 16:13; 17:3; Acts 5:3-4; 17:24-25; I Cor. 8:4, 6; Eph. 2:18; Phil. 2:6; Col. 1:16-17; I Tim. 1:17; Heb. 1:8; I John 5:20.

The Father

We believe the Father is the Source of all that exists, whether of matter or spirit. With the Son and the Holy Spirit, He made man in His image. By intention He relates to man as Father, thereby forever declaring His goodwill toward man. In love, He both seeks and receives penitent sinners.  Ps. 68:5; Isa. 64:8; Matt. 7:11; John 3:17; Rom. 8:15; I Peter 1:17.

The Son of God-Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, truly God and truly man. He died on the cross and was buried, to be a sacrifice both for original sin and for all the transgressions of men, and to reconcile us to God. Christ rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven, and there intercedes for us at the Father's right hand until He returns to judge all men at the last day.  John 1:1, 14, 18; 3:16-17; 20:26-29; 21;

The Holy Spirit

Nooooo, the Holy Spirit is not a dove.  However, in Luke 3:22, the Word says, “And the Holy Spirit descended  in bodily  form like a dove upon Him…” and, Matthew 3:16 says, “When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw  the Spirit of God descending like a dove  and alighting upon Him.  This where the representation of the “dove” originates.  We believe in the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father and the Son, and is of the same essential nature, majesty, and glory, as the Father and the Son, truly and eternally God.  I Cor. 2:10-12
