that Scripture is the infallible record of God's historic self-revelation to man. It is also the means by which God continually speaks to His children, calling them to faithful obedience and instructing them in Christian growth. 2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Hebrews 4:12.
that God is one in essence, yet exists eternally in three coequal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He has revealed Himself to be perfect in love, righteous in all His ways, and Creator of all things. Deuteronomy 6:4, 1 Corinthians 12:4-6, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Matthew 28:19.
that every member of the human race is a sinner by nature and deed. Genesis 3:1-7, Romans 3:23, 5:12-14.
that people become children of God when they repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ alone as Lord and Savior. John 1:12.
that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, born of a virgin, sinless, crucified for our sins, resurrected from the dead, ascended to heaven and coming back again to establish His kingdom on earth. Matthew 24:32-51, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Corinthians 15:3-8, 2 Peter 3:13.
that the Holy Spirit indwells the life of the believer providing strength and wisdom for loving and living according to the will of God. John 14:26, Acts 1:8.
the church is the living Body of Christ on earth. He is its head and the source of its life. The body is composed of those who have received Him as Savior and Lord. Ephesians 1:22-23, 1 Corinthians 11:3, Ephesians 5:23.
that a true believer is eternally secure, that he cannot lose his salvation, but that sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring loving discipline from his Heavenly Father. Romans 8:38-39, John 10:27-30, Hebrews 10:14, Philippians 1:6.
Jesus Christ will return to earth to raise the dead, judge the world, and establish His glorious Kingdom. This is the hope of the church and its encouragement for ministry. Those who have been reborn will live with Him forever. Those who do not believe in Him will receive eternal punishment and separation from God. Matthew 24:27, John 3:36, John 5:24, Revelation 21:8.
