God, all-loving Creator of the heavens and the earth, eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is eternal and fully Divine. He became fully human, born of the virgin Mary. Though sinless and innocent, he was crucified on a cross, died and was buried in a tomb. Through His resurrection, he freed all people from the power of sin and death. He will return again, ushering in the eternal Kingdom of God. All who respond to the work and teachings of Jesus by a personal belief that is represented in a changing life will live forever with Him.
The Holy Spirit is eternal, continually drawing men and women to God. Being filled by the Holy Spirit as children of God, believers are encouraged, transformed to be like Christ, convicted of sin and empowered to serve others.
Salvation, a free gift from God, is God’s desire for all humanity to be in right relationship with Him. In turning from a self-centered life and turning to God, accepting the work Christ accomplished, one receives new and eternal life.
The Bible is the expressed Word of God and is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
The Church is the living body of Christ on earth. There is only one Church in God’s sight and it is made up of all those that have chosen Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Each local congregation is an expression of this one church, and it is God’s will for each believer to be committed to a local congregation. Since faith in Christ makes one a member of God’s church, McDowell requires no other formalities for membership.
