The Bible - (2 Timothy 3:16) The sole basis of our belief is the Bible, composed of the 66 books of the Old and New Testament. The Bible is wholly and verbally inspired by God in its original manuscripts. The Bible is, therefore, the infallible divine authority in all matters of faith and practice and without error in all its teaching. There are no other writings similarly inspired by God.
God - (2 Corinthians 13:14) There is one
God eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ - (Hebrews 1:3) God the Son became flesh in the person of Jesus Christ, who was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and who is fully God and fully man. His death on the cross was a substitutionary sacrifice to atone for sin, and all who believe in Him are declared righteous on the basis of His shed blood. He arose bodily, ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of the Father, where He, the only Mediator between God and man, continually makes intercession for His own. His return to receive His own will be personal, visible and bodily.
The Holy Spirit - (John 14:26; 1 Corinthians 12:4-7) The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, is God and performs a ministry of conviction, regeneration and sanctification. He indwells every believer at the point of salvation and equips the members of Christ's body for ministry through the impartation of spiritual gifts for the building up of the church.
Humanity and Salvation - (Genesis 1:26; Ephesians 2:8-9) Man and woman were created in the image of God, sinned, and consequently experienced not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God. Every human being is born with a sinful tendency, and when he reaches moral responsibility becomes a sinner in thought, word and deed. The salvation of mankind is, then, wholly a work of God's free grace, not the result, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness, and must be personally appropriated by repentance and faith.
The Christian Life - (Romans 12:1) Every believer in Christ should be committed to the Lordship of Christ and growing in the grace and knowledge of Christ.
The Church - (1 Corinthians 12:12-13) The church, the body and bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of believers in Christ and manifested in autonomous local congregations.
Church Ordinances - (Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26) The two ordinances of the church are baptism and the Lord's Supper. Baptism should be administered by immersion to believers upon confession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The ordinance of the Lord's Supper should be observed regularly in remembrance of Christ's death and in anticipation of His return. The elements of the Lord's Supper are symbolic of His body and blood.
The Eternal State - (Revelation 20:12) Both
believers and unbelievers will be bodily raised. All will be judged at the throne of Christ. The saved will experience everlasting blessedness in
eternal life with God; the lost will experience everlasting conscious punishment in eternal separation from God.
