The Bible

The Holy scriptures, the Bible, is God's revelation to man. It was authored and inspired by the Holy Spirit through men. It is complete, true, trustworthy, and inerrant in the original manuscript.

God

There is only one living and true God. He is all powerful, infinite, and eternal. God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

Man

Mankind carries special value as being created in the image of God. Man chose to rebel and sin against God, causing all mankind to be under the curse of sin and death.

Deity of Jesus

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He is both fully God and fully man.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement. He calls men to the Savior, and effects regeneration and understanding of truth.

Death and Resurrection

Jesus Christ, living a sinless life, fulfilled the law. His death and blood shed through crucifixion provided the only provision for redemption of sinful man. He raised from the dead in flesh and bone, appeared to His disciples, and ascended into Heaven.
