The Church is the family of believers who are united in Christ, in all times and all places, and expressed in many different local congregations.
The Church’s mission is to go into all the world and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; teaching them to obey all the things that Jesus commanded.
Baptism is the washing of water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Through baptism, believers signify their union with Jesus in his death, burial and resurrection.
The Lord’s Supper is the bread and the cup. When we partake of the Lord’s Supper together, as Jesus commanded, we remember his death on the cross and look forward to his coming again.
Prayer is talking with God and enjoying fellowship with him. By faith, when we pray we come to the Father, through the Son, by the Holy Spirit.
Jesus taught us to pray in this way: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”
When Jesus returns, he will raise everyone from the dead, judge us all perfectly, and restore God’s creation.
Jesus will judge unbelievers openly according to their works, and he will cast them into hell with the devil and his angels as an everlasting punishment.
Believers will be openly judged by Jesus according to their works to determine the rewards they will receive as they enter into the joy of his Kingdom in the new heaven and new earth.
