We align to the above doctrine, and confess in summary:
The Bible is God’s pure word, without error. It is the pure rule for faith and life.
So then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
Every word of God is pure. Proverbs 30.5
Baptism saves us.
He that believes and is Baptized shall be saved. Mark 6:16
Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of the Jesus and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38
There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism (Not the removal of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 3:21
That Jesus Christ forgives those who confess their sins.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins. He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. John 1: 8-9
That we can know we have eternal life. Through his word and sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.
These are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and that believing that you may have life in his name. John 20:31
Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. Acts 2:38
Who ever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:54
That God loves you and wants you to share in the Life He brings us.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in His should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17
To gather with God’s people in united adoration of the Father is as necessary to the Christian life as prayer.
