The Bible

The Bible, verbally and plenary inspired, is God’s Word; infallible, inerrant, and authoritative in all matters of which it speaks (II Tim.3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21).

The Trinity

There is one God, personal, infinite, perfect, and eternal, existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who are equal in every divine perfection (Ex.20:2-3; Deut.6:4; Rev.4:11; Matt.28:19).

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is a Divine person who convicts men and regenerates, sanctifies, and preserves the believer (John 14:16-17; 16:8-11; Heb. 9:14; Eph. 1:13-14).

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, was born of a virgin and is true God and true man (Is.7:14; Matt.1:18-25; I John 5:20).


God directly created the universe from no pre-existing substance. Naturalistic and theistic evolution are rejected (Gen.1:1, 26-27; 2:7; Col.1:16-17).

Man & Woman

God created man and woman in His own image and established marriage as a lifelong union between one genetic male and one genetic female. Biblical marriage is the only legitimate and acceptable context for sexual intimacy. (Gen 2:20-24; Matt 19:4-6; Romans 7:2; 1 Thess 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4)


Satan is a created but fallen personality, opposed to all that is holy, destined for eternal punishment (Is. 14:12-15; Ez.28:14-17; I Peter 5:8; Jude 6).

The Fall

Man was made in God’s own image but now is through Adam’s fall a sinner both by nature and choice, and can be restored to God’s favor only by God’s provision of salvation in Christ as applied by the Holy Spirit (Gen.3:1-6,24; Rom.3:10-19; 5:12,19).

Christ's Resurrection

Jesus Christ rose bodily from the grave, ascended into Heaven, and interceded on our behalf as our High Priest (I Cor.15:3-4; I Tim. 2:5; Rev. 3:21).


Salvation is by grace through faith only in Jesus Christ, through his substitutionary atoning sacrifice apart from any human merit (Eph. 2:8-9; Heb.2:14-17).

New Life

To be saved, sinners must be born again. This birth is instantaneous and not a process, and is evidenced by newness of life (John 3:3; II Cor. 5:17; I John 5:1).


Justification is an act of God in which he declares the believer to be righteous on the basis of faith in Christ and the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to the believing sinner (Acts 16:39; Titus 3:5-7).


Sanctification is the setting apart of a believer unto God as his purchased possession through the work of the Holy Spirit and the power of his Word (Heb. 10:10-14; Eph. 5:25-27; I Thess. 4:3-4).

Eternal Security

Every genuinely saved believer is eternally secure, being “kept by the power of God” (John 10:28; I Pet. 2:5; Rom. 8:35-39; Eph. 1:13).

The Body of Christ

All those who have been born again are members of the church universal, which is the body of Christ and are eligible for baptism. (Acts 8:36-39; Rom. 6:4-5; I Cor. 11:2).


Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of the church; they have no merit for salvation (John 3:23; Rom. 6:3-5; Matt. 3:16; I Cor. 11:23-28).


The Bible calls for a separation from sin and a pursuit of holiness and righteousness as they seek to love God and their neighbor (II Cor. 6:14; 7:1; I Thess. 1:9-10; I Tim. 6:3-5).

Church & State

Civil government exists by divine sanction, and a Biblical relationship between government and church should be maintained (Matt. 22:21; Rom. 13:1-7).


Israel is God’s covenant people now dispersed because of unbelief but yet to be regathered and saved as a nation at the second advent of Christ (Gen. 13:14-17; II Sam. 7:12-16).

Christ's Return

The return of Christ includes both the rapture of the church and his return in glory. The rapture is for his church, which is personal, and imminent. His return to earth will establish his righteous reign over the world. This coming is visible, personal, and in power and great glory (I Thess. 4:16-17; Rev. 19:11-21).
