the Holy Bible, the Old and New Testaments, with its sixty-six canonical books
in the original manuscripts is the verbal, plenary, and infallible Word of God, entirely without error or contradiction in
all matters of which it speaks; we additionally believe that God by His singular care and providence, has preserved His Holy
Scriptures: and the Holy Bible is, therefore, the only sufficient, final, and supreme rule and authority of faith and practice.
(Psalm 12:6,7; 119:89,105,160; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Luke 16:17; II Timothy 3:16,17; Hebrews 4:12; I Peter 1:24,25; II Peter
1:21; Revelation 22:18,19).
that God is Triune; that there are Three Persons in the Godhead,
and these three are one God. (Matthew 28:19)
in the deity of the Lord Jesus
Christ; that He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary (John 1; Matthew 1).
that the only way to be saved is by faith in the blood sacrifice, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son
of God; and that to those who thus become His, He says, "I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand." (John 10:28; Ephesians 2:8,9)
that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of the Father; that He ever liveth
to make intercession for all that come to God by Him. (Acts 1:9-11; Ephesians 1:20-21; Hebrews 4:14)
that the Church, which is the Body of Christ, began with the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost;
and that each one who receives the Lord Jesus as his personal Savior is a member of the Body of Christ, and is indwelt by
the Holy Spirit. (I Corinthians 12:12-28; 6:19-20).
that the Gospel
commission is for the Church; that the Lord's Supper and Water Baptism by immersion for believers only are Divine institutions
and that Christ desires us to practice them in this age. (Matthew 28:18-20; I Corinthians 11:23-29).
that Christ may at any moment return in the air to rapture the saints, and that the Tribulation period of approximately
seven years shall follow, after which He will come to earth with His saints, and rule for a thousand years. After this those
who have not trusted Jesus Christ as their Savior will be judged and cast into the Lake of Fire. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18;
I Corinthians 15:51-57; Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15-21; 24:27; 25:46; Revelation 9:11; 20:10-12).
that Satan is a person, the author of "The Fall", and that he shall be eternally punished. (Job 1:6; Genesis
3:1-19; Revelation 20:10).
in the bodily resurrection of the dead, both of the
just and the unjust; in the eternal conscious punishment of the lost and the eternal joy of the saved. (Revelation 20:11-15;
22:12-21; I Corinthians 15:1-58).
