1. Every word in the Bible is verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit without error in the original writings. It is the authoritative Word of God and the only infallible guide for faith and living.
2. God created and sustains all things. He is unchanging, infinite, perfect and eternally exists as three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, and is ultimately sovereign.
3. Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died in our place on the cross to pay for our sins, rose bodily from the dead and is at the right hand of the Father where He is our intercessor and advocate.
4. Man was created in the image of God. He sinned, is spiritually dead and must be spiritually reborn. We are free to accept or reject the gift of salvation that comes by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ on the basis of His death and resurrection. Those who accept Christ as Savior are born of the Holy Spirit, adopted as children of God and cannot lose their salvation.
5. Angels are created beings that worship God and minister to believers. One of the angels, Satan, or the devil, is real, rebelled against God and is a deceiver who presently has great power in this world, and will one day be eternally judged.
6. Jesus Christ will return bodily and personally to earth to overcome Satan, judge the living and the dead, establish His promised millennial kingdom and fulfill God's eternal plan. The believers will be raised to eternal life and joy in Heaven with the Lord. The unsaved will be raised to conscious everlasting punishment.
7. The church consists of those who have new life in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit indwells and empowers believers to use their spiritual gifts and abilities in the local church. The local church exists for worship, fellowship, evangelism, discipleship and service.
8. Believers in Christ are to fulfill the great commission and obey the great commandment. As He was leaving, Jesus reminded the believers to be sure and tell the good news of salvation to everyone and help them grow. Jesus also made sure to impress on the believers that the greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all that we are and to love others as ourselves.
9. Communion and baptism are two powerful symbols Jesus Christ left the church. Communion reminds us of Christ's death on our behalf. Baptism is our testimony of what the Lord has done in us through salvation and is a beautiful illustration of His death, burial, and resurrection.
