The Bible
The Old and New Testament Scriptures of the Bible are the inspired Word of God. They are the complete revelation of His Will and the final authority for all Christian faith and life.

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God miraculously conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as the complete and final sacrifice for our sins, was resurrected, ascended into heaven, sat at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate, and will one day return. It is only through Him that men may come to the Father and be saved.

The Holy Spirit
The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, convict men of sin, regenerate the believer, then indwell, guide, comfort, instruct, and empower them to do the will of the Father.

Salvation
Only through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God and experience true life and joy.

Marriage
Marriage is a biblical institution and covenant that is shared between one man and one woman before God. It is the representation of the relationship between God and His Church.

Baptism
Water baptism by immersion after accepting Christ as personal Savior is a commemorative testimony of death to sin and a resurrection to a new life as a born again believer before all.

Communion
The Lord’s Supper is a sacred, symbolic ceremony reminding us of the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus Christ for our sins as the true Passover Lamb.

The True Church
The true Church is composed of those who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been born again, and are united together as the body of Christ of which He is the head.

The Local Church
Open Word Christian Ministries is a place where people gather for edification, fellowship, and to initiate service to each other and the community under the leadership of God and the Senior Pastor.
