What do we believe in?
Our beliefs are simple, really. We believe that “God created the heavens and the earth.” (Gen 1:1) We also believe that he sent his only son, Jesus, our savior, to die for us. God loved us so much he sacrificed his only son to redeem our sins by his blood (John 3:16). Now, after his death, and more importantly resurrection, we are reconciled to him, that we may live in heaven eternally, after acceptance of his redemption in our heart. Jesus conquered death, so that we may live. To go to heaven, you simply must accept that our sins are redeemed by his resurrection, and accept him, his Holy Spirit, into your heart. “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved,” says Mark 16:16, and that’s what it really means to be a Christian: to be saved. So, yes, you must be baptized, not necessarily in water, but in the spirit, and must honestly believe in Christ as your savior. Finally, Jesus sent us, by the Great Commission, to reach all nations and tell them of his redemption and love. In accepting his redemption, he calls us to share the blessing of the good news with everyone, not to simply keep it to ourselves. But we don’t have to do it alone, for he is always with us in the Holy Spirit.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
