The divine inspiration and inerrancy of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as originally given and these Scriptures are the church’s authority in all matters of faith and practice. John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21
One true God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, these being the same in substance and equal in power and glory.
Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 6:8; John 15:26;Mark 1:10,11; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14
The full deity of our Lord Jesus Christ who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary; his perfect humanity; his substitutionary death; his bodily resurrection and ascension; his presence at the right hand of the Father; his unchanging priesthood and his future bodily return in glory.
Hebrews 13:8; Colossians 2:9; Luke 1:31,35; 1 Peter 2:22; Mark 16:19; Hebrews 5:6; Mark 13:26
The personality and total wickedness of the devil and in the fallen, sinful and lost estate of mankind.
1 Peter 5:8; Ephesians 6:11,12; Romans 3:23; Romans 7:11-13, Romans 5:12; Galatians 3:22
The divine provision of full salvation through Jesus Christ who by his shed blood, death and resurrection defeated the devil and delivered us from the penalty and power of sin. All who are willing receive salvation by repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 John 1:9; Ephesians 2:8; John 5:24; John 3:16; Romans 5:9
The deity of the Holy Spirit and his work in the regeneration and sanctification of men and women, his indwelling in all believers and their eternal preservation.
John 3:5-7; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Romans 8:14-16; John 10:28
The church as the assembly of all who have been born of the Holy Spirit and have been formed into one body, of which Christ is the Head.
Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 1:22-23
The bodily resurrection of the dead; final judgment of all men and women by the Lord Jesus Christ; the eternal punishment of the unrepentant and the eternal blessedness of the redeemed. 2 Corinthians 5:1; Luke 16:22-24; 1 Corinthians 15:42,43; John 5:28,29; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10
The observance of the two ordinances of the Lord Jesus Christ, namely Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is the immersion of believers upon their profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and a symbol of their fellowship in his death, burial and resurrection. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial and celebration, until he comes, of the sacrifice of the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Matthew 28:19; Luke 22:19,20; Acts 8:38,39; Romans 6:4; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
