The Scriptures Inspired
2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21
The Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
Matthew 28:19, John 14:16-17, Luke 1:35, 1 Corinthians 1:24, Matthew 11:25-27, 2 Corinthians 13:14, 1 John 1:3-4
There is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection; and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.
God the Father
God the Father, an infinite, personal, spirit perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayers; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
Matthew 1:23, Hebrews 7:26, 1 Corinthians 15:3, Acts 1:9
Jesus Christ, God's only begotten son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal visible return to earth.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, unrighteousness, and judgement, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and He is an abiding helpwe, teacher and guide.
Fruits of the Spirit
The Salvation of Man
Luke 24:47, John 3:3, Romans 10:9-10, Romans 10:13-15, Ephesians 2:8, Titus 2:11
All men are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. Those that repent of their sins, trust and remain in Jesus Christ as Savior are saved from eternal damnation.
The Ordinances of the Church
Baptism in water; Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, Acts 10:47,48, Romans 6:4
Holy Communion; 2 Peter 1:4, 1 Corinthians 11:26
The universal church, a living spiritual body of Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. The local church, consisting of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible confession of faith, and associated for worship, work and fellowship. God has laid upon the member of the local church the primary task of giving the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
The Baptism with the Holy Spirit
Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4, Acts 1:8, Acts 10:44-45, John 7:37-39, 1 Corinthians 12-14
Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:16-17, James 5:14-16
The Final Judgement
Matthew 25:26, Mark 9:43-48, Revelation 19:20, Revelation 20:11-15, Revelation 21:8
The New Heavens and the New Earth
2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21, Revelation 2
The personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. The resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal joy of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked.
