We believe :
1. In one Holy, Almighty God, eternally existing in three persons,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, co-eternal in being, co-identical in
nature, co-equal in power and glory, each with distinct personal attributes,
but without division of nature, essence or being.
Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 1:1-2, II Corinthians 13:14, Philippians
2. In the verbal and plenary inspiration of
the Old and New Testaments; that they are infallible, inerrant in the original
writings, and the final authority for faith and life.
Biblical Reference: II
Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:20-21, Matthew 5:18, John 16:12- 13
3. That the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God,
without ceasing to be God, became man by the Holy Spirit and virgin birth; that
he lived a sinless life on earth; that he died at Calvary as a satisfactory
substitutionary sacrifice for sinners; that his body was buried in and arose
from the tomb; that he ascended to Heaven and was glorified as a man at God's
right hand; that He is coming again for His own and then to set up His Kingdom.

John 16: 7-11, Matthew 19:28, Matthew 25:31, II Timothy 2:8
4. That the Holy Spirit is a divine person who convicts
the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgement; that He is that
supernatural agent in regeneration by whom all believers are baptized into the
body of Christ; that he indwells and seals them until the day of redemption.
He is the divine teacher and helper who guides believers into
all truth; it is the privilege of all believers to be filled with the spirit.
John 16:7-15, 1 Corinthians 12:13, II Corinthians 1:22, Ephesians 1:13
5. That God created man in His own image and in
the state of innocence. Through Adam's transgression "sin entered the world,
and death through sin;" and consequently, mankind inherited a corrupt nature,
being born in sin and under condemnation. As soon as men are capable of moral
action, they become actual transgressors in thought, word and deed.
Biblical Reference: Genesis
1:26-27, Romans 5:12, Romans 3:23, I John 1:8, Ephesians 2:3
6. That salvation is a gift of God brought to men by
grace and received only through personal repentance for sin and faith in the
person and the finished work and atoning blood of Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 1:7, 2:1-10, John 1:12
7. In the
bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to
everlasting punishment. That the souls of the redeemed are, at death absent
from the body and present with the Lord where, in conscious bliss they await
the first resurrection when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified
forever with the Lord.

24:25, John 5:28-29, Luke 16:19-31, II Corinthians 5:8, I Thessalonians
4:14-17, I John 3:2
8. That the church
universal is a spiritual organism composed of the regenerated who are baptized
into that body by the Holy Spirit at the time of the new birth and that the
local church, the visible manifestation of the body, has the responsibility to
provide for the fellowship and edification of believers and to propagate the
Gospel into the world.
