IN REGARD TO THE SCRIPTURES
We believe that all the words of the sixty-six books of the Bible are the inspired words of God and were written by holy men of God who spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit; that Scriptures are the supreme authority and standard by which all men should conduct their thoughts, words and deeds, and by which all men shall be judged (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; Hebrews 4:12-13).
IN REGARD TO GOD
We believe there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious functions in the great work of redemption (Exodus 20:2-3; Isaiah 48:16; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Revelation 4:11).
IN REGARD TO JESUS CHRIST
We believe that Jesus Christ is God the Creator in the flesh; that He was conceived of the Holy Spirit; that His birth was of a virgin; that His earthly life was sinless; that His death was an atoning, substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of man; that His burial and resurrection were literal; that His ascension to the Father was real, visible and glorious, that His advocacy at the right-hand of God is now effective; and that His return in power and great glory is imminent (John 1:1-3; 1 Timothy 3:16; Luke 1:35; Matthew 1:18-25; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 7:25; 1 John 2:1-2; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 19:11-16).
IN REGARD TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the Holy Spirit is a Divine person of the Trinity equal with the Father and the Son and of the same essence; that He was active in creation; that in His relation to the unbelieving world He restrains the evil one until God's purpose is fulfilled; that He convicts of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; that His works in the life of the believer include regeneration, baptism into the Body of Christ, indwelling, sealing, filling, gifting, guiding, teaching, illuminating, witnessing; and that His sole mission is to glorify Jesus Christ (Acts 5:3-4; Romans 8:9; Genesis 1:1-3; Genesis 6:3; John 16:7-11; Titus 3:5; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 5:18-20; 1 Corinthians 12:11; John 14:26; John 16:13-15).
IN REGARD TO MAN
We believe that man was created by God and in the image of God; that man was originally sinless, was tempted by Satan, gave into temptation and sinned, was separated from God, and was condemned to physical and spiritual death; that as a result of the original sin of man, all mankind inherited a sinful nature, and all men have sinned and come short of the glory of God; and that apart from Jesus Christ all men are condemned to an eternal hell where there is no hope of eternal life in heaven with the Lord (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:16-17; Genesis 3:1-23; Romans 5:12; Romans 3:23; 2 Thessalonians 1:9).
IN REGARD TO SALVATION
We believe that Christ's death, burial and resurrection is man's only means of salvation; that man is not saved by personal works, but by faith in the personal works, but by faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ; that the saved are justified by faith which is the judicial act of God, whereby those who put their faith in Christ are declared righteous in His eyes and are free from guilt and punishment of sin; and that the saved are sanctified (set apart) at conversion by God to be developed and perfected unto the day of Christ's return (John 14:6; Romans 10:9; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Romans 5:1; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 10:9-14).
