  • the Bible is God's written revelation to man and all 66 books of the Bible are equally inspired in all parts. Therefore the Bible is without error as originally given by God, altogether sufficient in themselves as our only rule of faith and practice. (John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
  • there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 1:3-14)
  • the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory. (John 1:1-2, 14; 20:25-28; Titus 2:13)
  • the Holy Spirit is a divine person, possessing all the attributes of deity; that in essence He is equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature. (Matthew 28:19; John 16:7-8; Ephesians 1:13-14)
  • that man was created in complete innocence under the law of his Maker, but by voluntary personal disobedience to the revealed will of God, became a sinful creature and the progenitor of a fallen race. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 5:12, 14, 19)
  • that the salvation of man, who is sinful and lost, is wholly of grace by the New Birth or regeneration by the Holy Spirit. (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5)
  • the one true Church, the spiritual Body and Bride of the Lord Jesus which began on the day of Pentecost and will complete its maturity at His second coming. (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 2:14-16; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
  • the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (1 Corinthians 15:35-58; Philippians 3:20-21; Revelation 20:11-15)
