Growing As Disciples • Caring For Others • Sharing Jesus
…the Holy Bible was given by the direct inspiration of God. It is sufficient to inform people of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible is the written authority by which all guidance should be measured for truth. God’s Holy Spirit, who inspired the Scriptures, also interprets them, working through those yielded to Him within His Church. Genuine guidance from God is in accord with the Holy Scriptures.
…there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
…in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death on the cross as the only sacrifice sufficient for our salvation, in His bodily resurrection, and in His personal return in power and glory.
…that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, new life given by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
…in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
…in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who have faith in Christ to eternal life, and those who have rejected Christ to eternal separation from God and all His goodness.
…in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
