1. The Bible:
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the revealed,
verbally inspired, only infallible, authoritative written
Word of God, inerrant in the original writings.
2. The Trinity:
there is only one God, Creator and Sustainer of all things,
eternally existing in three equal persons: Father, Son and
3. God the Father:
is infinite in holiness, power, wisdom, and love and is sovereign
over all, including creation, providence and redemption.
4. Jesus Christ:
is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived
a sinless life, performed mighty miracles, died a vicarious
and atoning death through His blood shed on the cross, was
resurrected bodily from the tomb on the third day, ascended
to the right hand of the Father, and will personally return
in power and glory.
5. The Holy Spirit:
is active in creation and redemption. He is the indwelling,
empowering Presence of God who enables the Christian to live
a godly life, to receive counsel and comfort, to serve with
spiritual gifts in love, and to witness with conviction and
all people are created by God in His image. They are by nature
sinners who are lost and have no right standing before God.
For salvation, personal faith in the person and work of Jesus
Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are absolutely
essential. At the Judgment the saved and the lost will be
resurrected in their bodies, the former to eternal life with
the Lord, the latter to eternal separation from Him.
7. The Church:
is God's called-out, called-together people and is His agent
for love, reconciliation, unity and witness in our families,
cities, regions, and throughout the world.
