  • There is one God who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (1 John 5:7)
     

  • Jesus Christ is true God and true man.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on 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 rose from the dead according to the Scriptures (Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-14; Luke 24:1-49; John 20:1-23).  He is right now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest (Hebrews 4:14-15).  He will come again to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.
     

  • The Holy Spirit is a divine person sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower, and comfort the believer, and convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement.  (John 16:7-11)
     

  • The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21) and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men.  They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
     

  • Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:27), he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death (Genesis 3:1-7).  All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God (Romans 3:23, 5:12), and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The portion of the impenitent and unbelieving is existent forever in conscious torment, and that of the believer in everlasting joy and bliss (Revelation 22:1-5).
     

  • Salvation has been provided for all men through Jesus Christ; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.  (John 3)
     

  • It is the will of God that each believer be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service (Romans 12:1-2).  This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion (1 John 3:7-10; Luke 14:28-30; Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23).
     

  • Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and the anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are the privilege of the church in this present age.  (James 5:13-16)
     

  • The church consists of all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit.  Christ is the head of the body (Ephesians 5:23), the church which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the Gospel to all nations (Mark 16:15).  The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the Gospel, and observance of the ordinance of baptism and the Lord's Supper.
     

  • There will be a bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life (1 Thessalonians 4:13,18); for the latter, a resurrection unto judgement (Revelation 20:11-15).
     

  • The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible, and premillenial. This is the believers blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful services.
     

  • The accepted form of water baptism is by immersion (Acts 8:38; Matthew 3:13-17).  Children who have not come to the age of accountability will be dedicated to the Lord (1 Samuel 1:24-28).
