God

There is one true God. He is eternal, existing in three persons, that is the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each of the persons of God is both fully and completely divine and distinct.

Deuteronomy 6:4, Revelation 1:8, John 1:18, John 14:10-11John 14:16-17

The Bible

The Bible is God's word. The Bible is complete, inerrant, and infallible. The Bible is sufficient for deciding all matters of faith. The Bible was written by men; however its plenary content was sustained by the Holy Spirit throughout its authorship.

2 Peter 1:19-21

Sin

The world was created by God and is sustained by God. However, upon man's sin against God death was introduced to creation. Because of man's fallen state all of mankind stands already condemned in sin to an eternal Death, which is Hell.

Colossians 1:16-17, Romans 5:12, John 3:18, Ephesians 2:3

Salvation

Salvation is found only in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was conceived and born of a virgin mother. He lived a perfect and sinless life, sentenced to death under Pontius Pilate and was therefore crucified. Three days after His death He defeated death in resurrection and ascended to the right hand of the Father where He functions as the one mediator between the Father and those of mankind who have received Him through faith; because of His mediation the believer's sins are forgiven, the believer attains the righteousness of God and is guaranteed eternal life in fellowship with God in Heaven; this is known as salvation. Salvation is only offered by grace and is received through faith in Jesus, the Son. Jesus will one day return to earth and judge both the living and the dead.

Acts 4:11-12, Matthew 1:18, Matthew 1:25, 2 Corinthians 5:21, John 19:1-30, Mark 9:31, Acts 1:9, Hebrews 8:1-2, Hebrews 9:15, Ephesians 1:13-14, John 17:20-21, Ephesians 2:8-9, 1 Timothy 4:1, Revelation 20:11-13

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit indwells every believer. Once one receives the free grace gift of Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit indwells that person as a guarantee of that person's eternal salvation. The Holy Spirit counsels, guides, and convicts each believer towards holy living so that God my be glorified.

John 14:17, Ephesians 1:13-14, John 14:26

The Church

The Church is the body of people who have been reconciled to the Father in grace through faith in Jesus Christ and now live with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. The Church exists to know Christ in a deepening relationship while at the same time to minister to those outside of the church so that they too might come to faith in Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 12-14, Ephesians 4:14-16
