The Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings. It is the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and is the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.

  • God--There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three Manifestations: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ--Jesus Christ is the son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross that we might be redeemed from our sins, was buried, resurrected, and ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of God, He makes intercession for us. He is our High Priest and Advocate.
  • The Holy Spirit--The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for Godly living and service. The Holy Spirit baptizes the believer into the body of Christ and is the giver of spiritual gifts to the believer.
  • Man--Man consists of body, soul, and spirit. He was created in the image of God and by God. He fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit, acknowledging that Jesus is Lord, can he obtain salvation and spiritual life.
  • Salvation—All who, in faith, receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are born again by the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God. The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation.
  • The Return of Jesus Christ--The personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ is our hope and has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
  • Future Events--There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
  • The Church--The true Church is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.
Baptism and Communion--Water baptism by immersion soon after accepting Christ as personal Savior, is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life and the Lord's Supper is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; all true believers and only believers should share in it.
