The scriptures

Every word in the original writings is inspired by God and is without error. It is accurate in all matters to which it speaks: spiritual, historical, and scientific. The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the foundation of the faith and practice. 

(Num. 23:19; Deut. 4:2; 6:6-7; Ps. 12:6; 119; Prov. 30:5-6; Matt. 4:4; 2 Tim. 3:15-16; 1 Pet. 2:2; 2 Pet. 1:21)


God exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three have distinct personalities and yet are of the same substance, one God. 

(Gen. 1:1; John 10:30; John 4:24; Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; 1 John 5:7)

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 is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. 

(Gen. 1:1; 2:7; Ex. 3:14; 20:1; Deut. 6:4; Ps. 19:1-3; Matt. 6:9; Mark 1:9-11; John 3:3,5; 14:6-13; Rom. 8:14-15; Gal. 4:6; Eph. 4:6; Heb. 12:9.)

jesus christ

The eternal Son of God became incarnate in the Lord Jesus Christ, being born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. He died physically on the cross and was bodily resurrected three days later. 

(John 1:1,14,18; 5:18; Heb. 1:1-9; 5:8; 1 John 5:20; 1 Tim. 2:5; 1 Cor. 15:1-5)

holy spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He regenerates, indwells, baptizes, and seals all believers in Christ and empowers those yielded to God. 

(Matt. 28:19; John 3:3-7; Titus 3:5; 1 Cor. 6:19; Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor. 2:12; 12:13; Eph. 4:30; Col. 3:14)


Man is created in the image and likeness of God. In Adam, all mankind fell into sin with the result that all men are sinners. Men are justly condemned to eternal judgment and can do nothing to merit salvation. 

(Rom. 2:2-5; Eph. 2:8-9; Gen. 1:27, 9:6; Rom. 5:12; 3:23; Eph. 2:1)


Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. 

(Gen. 3:15; 12:1-3; Ex. 19:5-8; Isa. 5:1-7; Matt. 16:18-19; Acts 20:32; Rom. 5:9-10; 15:24-28; Eph. 2:1-10; 3:1-11; Heb. 11:39–12:2; 1 Pet. 1:2-5,13; 2:4-10; 1 John 1:7-9)
