The Bible is the verbally-inspired, inerrant word of God, containing the revelation of His mind, will, and redemption. Its historical and prophetic statements are accurate. It is the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21, Matthew 5:17-18)
There is one God, the creator of all, eternally existent in three persons — the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
(Genesis 1:26, Deuteronomy 6:4, Hebrews 1:8, Acts 5:3-4, Matthew 28:19)
Jesus is both the Son of God and the Word of God from eternity past. He was born into the world as true man and true God (God manifest in flesh) to fulfill God’s purpose as the Christ, the annointed Saviour of mankind.
(John 1:1, Philippians 2:6, Matthew 1:23, Colossians 2:9)
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit brings conviction of sin and judgment to all men, and all who repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ are born again, indwelt, and joined to the body of Christ (the church) by the Holy Spirit.
(John 16:8, 2 Peter 1:4, John 3:5-8, John 3:16, John 3:36, Romans 8:9-11, 1 Corinthians 12:13)
As a result of the fall in the garden of Eden, mankind received a sinful nature, leaving the entire human race hopelessly lost in their sin, unable to save themselves from eternal punishment by their own righteousness or works.
(Genesis 3, Romans 3:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5)
Jesus lived a perfect and sinless life (being perfect and sinless in his own nature), died for the sins of the world on the cross at Calvary, was buried, rose from the dead, and ascended back into heaven, where he currently sits at the Father’s right hand. Faith in Jesus and His saving work on the cross is the only way of salvation.
(Romans 5:18, Romans 5:6-11, Hebrews 9:28, Hebrews 7:25-27)
The Lord Jesus will remove the church from the world prior to the time of tribulation, return to dealing with His people Israel during the tribulation, and descend to earth after the tribulation to judge the world and establish His kingdom. There will be a bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust.
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 3:10, Revelation 19:11-16, Acts 24:15, 1 Corinthians 15:35-50)
The Universal Church
There is one true and universal church, the body of Christ, which is composed of all true believers, and Jesus Christ is its only head.
(Ephesians 1:22-23, Romans 12:4-5, 1 Peter 2:5)
The Local Church
The local church is designed by God to provide Christians with a place of teaching, fellowship, encouragement, and spiritual help, and it should also be a lighthouse to help the lost find the way of salvation through the gospel.
(Acts 2:42, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Hebrews 10:24-25, Matthew 28:19-20)
The Lord’s Supper
Partaking of the Lord’s Supper is the privilege and responsibility of every believer not living impenitent in sin. We welcome all such believers to the Lord’s Table. We break bread every Sunday in keeping with apostolic practice.
(Luke 22:19-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-31, Acts 20:7)
The Bible commands all believers to be baptized as a testimony of their faith in Christ and identification with Him in his death. The biblical practice of baptism by immersion pictures both the believers’ burial with Christ and their resurrection with Him.
(Matthew 28:19, Acts 8:36-39, Romans 6:3-5)
The Priesthood of All Believers
Every believer is a priest before God, enjoying direct access to Him through Jesus, and representing Him to the world around them. Every believer is given one or more gifts by the Holy Spirit to be used in building up the body of believers.
(1 Peter 2:5-9, Romans 12:3-8, 1 Cor. 12:4-31)
