The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy.
The Triunity of God
There is only one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who is co-equal in their essential nature, attributes, and perfection and each of whom is to be honored and worshiped as God.
God the Father
God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all-powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise.
God the Son
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God the promised Messiah, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, true God and true man, without sin, and the only mediator between God and man. Jesus Christ through his death on the cross, paid for all sin, and completely satisfied the righteous wrath of God against sin, and provided redemption and forgiveness for all who believe, after his death Jesus rose bodily from the dead, and ascended into heaven where he is seated at the right hand of God the Father as our advocate and High Priest, whose effected reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission and establish his kingdom on earth.
The Ministry of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is that person of the Triune Godhead, who convicts men of sin, causes spiritual birth, indwells, seals, sanctifies, guides, teaches, and fills the believer, thus enabling him to understand and walk in obedience to God and His Word. His presence in the Christian is the guarantee that God will bring the believer into the fullness of the statue of Christ. The Holy Spirit empowers the Christian and the Church in worship, evangelism, and service.
The Creation and Fall of Man
Man is the special creation of God, made in his own image and is not the product of evolution; he fell into sin by personal disobedience to the revealed will of God; and as a result all mankind is sinful in nature and practice, and is unable to save himself, and faces eternal separation from God. Only the grace of God can bring man into His Holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purposes of God.
Eternal Salvation from sin, death, and hell is the free gift of God's grace, and is based solely upon man's personal faith and belief in Jesus Christ. He voluntarily died as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and rose bodily from the dead, thus guaranteeing our own resurrection to eternal life. This Salvation is not received by, nor based on, any sacrament, merit, or good work on our part. The one who receives Christ salvation is eternally secure.
The Destiny of Man
After death the redeem pass immediately into the presence of Christ and there remain in joyful fellowship until their bodily resurrection unto life. The unsaved at death descend immediately into Hades where they are kept under punishment until their bodily resurrection resulting in damnation.
The Ordinances of the Church
Two ordinances have been committed to the local church: baptism and Lord's Supper. Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in the water in the name of the triune God. Baptism is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior. This ordinance, being a command of Christ, is recognized as a prerequisite for membership in the local church. Like wise the Lord's supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His atoning death. These two ordinances are to be observed until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
One of the coming great events in the fulfillment of prophesy concerning the Church is the personal, bodily return of the Lord to remove from the earth His awaiting church and reward them according to their work. Another event yet to come is the seven year period of the tribulation during which the judgments of God will be poured out upon the unbelieving world. These judgments will climax with the return of Christ in glory to the earth. He will destroy His enemies and restore Israel to her land.
