THAT THE BIBLE IS GOD’S WORD that it was written by men divinely and uniquely inspired, that it is absolutely trustworthy and has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21
IN GOD THE FATHER creator of heaven and earth, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
Genesis 1:1; 1 Peter 1:2; Matthew 28:19
IN JESUS CHRIST God’s only begotten Son, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, sinless in His life, making atonement for the sin of the world by His death on the cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high-priestly intercession for His people, and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5; Romans 1:3-4; 1 Corinthians 5:3-4; Timothy 6:14-15
IN THE HOLY SPIRIT who came forth from God to convince the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to save, sanctify and comfort those who believe in Jesus Christ.
John 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; Ephesians 1:13-14
THAT ALL MEN by nature and by choice are sinners but that “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
Romans 3:23, 6:23; Philippians 3:20-21; 1 John 2:25
IN THE CHURCH which is a living spiritual body, of which Christ is the head, and of which all believers are members. We believe that a church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with him in baptism and associated for worship, work and fellowship. We believe that the church should observe the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and that God has laid upon his church the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior, and to embrace him as Lord and Master. We believe that human betterment and social improvement are essential products of the Gospel.
1 Corinthians 16:19; 1 Timothy 5:17
THAT EVERY HUMAN BEING is responsible to God in matters of faith.
