1. A person can only know and worship God after being born again by faith alone in Jesus Christ into the community of the redeemed (John 3; Ephesians 2:8-9).
2. Worship of God in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) is both corporate and personal, changing our beliefs and motivating us to service (Romans 12:1-2).
3. The work of the Holy Spirit through His Word is the catalyst and seal of our redemption (1 Timothy 3:16; John 16:7,13).
4. God's grace is unmerited favor and the basis of spiritual birth and growth (Ephesians 2:8-9; James 4:6).
5. The church, the local community of the redeemed, reflects the unity, diversity, and creativity of God through the identification and use of spiritual gifts (Romans 12:4-8; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27).
6. Prayer is our active evidence of faith, obedience, and utter dependence upon our absolutely sovereign God (James 4:2-3; 1 John 5:14).
7. Jesus established believers' Baptism and the Lord's Table as signs and celebrations of redemption among the community of the redeemed (Matthew 3:15-17, 26:26-29).
