The Holy Bible

Jn. 1:1, 2 & 14, Is. 7:14, Mt. 1:23, 1 Pet. 2:22, 1 Tim. 2:5 & 6, Acts 1:11

Salvation is provided though the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. His shed blood alone can cleanse sin.

The First & Second Resurrection
Jesus Christ rose the 3rd day, at His appearing all that are in the grave shall hear his voice.

As a progressive and continuing work of grace, every believer is compelled to grow in their relationship with God. 2 Tim. 2:21, Rom. 15:16, Jn. 17:19

James 5:14 &15, Luke 9:2, 1 Cor. 12:9
The Church is the body of Christ. Each and every believer, born of water and Spirit is an integral part of the church of God.
