The Scriptures Inspired

The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God, are the revelation of God to man, and are the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (II Ti. 3:15-17; I Th. 2:13; II Pe. 1:21).

The One True God

The One True God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent I AM, the Creator of heaven and earth, and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Dt. 6:4; Is. 43:10-11; Mt. 28:19; Lu. 3:22).

The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare His virgin birth (Ma. 1:23; Lu. 1:31, 35), His sinless life (He. 7:26; I Pe. 2:22), His miracles (Ac. 2:22; 20:38), His substitutionary work on the cross (I Co. 15:3; II Co. 5:21), His bodily resurrection from the dead (Mt. 28:6; Lu. 24:39; I Co. 15:4), and His exaltation to the right hand of God (Ac. 1:9; 2:33; Ph. 2:9-11; He. 1:3).

The Salvation of Man

Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. Being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Lu. 24:47; Jo. 3:3; Ro. 10:13-15; Ep. 2:8; Ti. 2:11; 3:5-7).

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts, and their uses in the work of the ministry (Lu 24:49; Ac 1:4,8; I Co. 12:1-31).
