Isa. 44:6, Isa. 45:5-6, Deut. 32:4, Matt. 3:16-17, Matt. 28:19
There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Phil. 2:6-11, Heb. 2:14-18, Col. 2:9, Matt. 1:18, Luke 1:35, 1 Cor. 15:3-5, 1 John 2:2, Acts 13:39, Heb. 4:14-15, Heb. 9:24-28, Matt. 25:31-34, Acts 1:11
Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He is the only begotten Son of God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He ascended to heaven where he now sits interceding on our behalf to God.
John 14:16-17, John 16:7-11, 1 Cor. 2:10-12
The Holy Spirit is a divine Person, sent to indwell, guide, teach and empower the believer, and to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.
2 Tim. 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21
The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of people. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
Gen. 1:27, Rom. 8:8, 1 John 2:2, Matt. 25:41-46, 2 Thes. 1:7-10
Humankind, originally created in the image and likeness of God, fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All people are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Titus 3:5-7, Acts 2:38, John 1:12, 1 Cor. 6:11
Salvation has been provided only through Jesus Christ. Those who repent and believe in Him are united with Christ through the Holy Spirit and are thereby regenerated (born again), justified, sanctified and granted the gift of eternal life as adopted children of God.
Eph. 3:6-12, Eph. 1:22-23, Acts 2:41-47, Heb. 10:25, Matt. 28:19-20, Acts 1:8, Acts 11:19-30
The universal Church, of which Christ is the Head, consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, regenerated by the Holy Spirit, and commissioned by Christ to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the Gospel to all nations.
The local church, the visible expression of the universal Church, is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together to worship God, to observe the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, to pray, to be edified through the Word of God, to fellowship, and to testify in word and deed to the good news of salvation both locally and globally. The local church enters into relationships with other like-minded churches for accountability, encouragement and mission.
