_____ The Bible
The Bible, comprising the sixty‐six books of the Old and New Testament, is the Word of God. Scripture in its entirety originated with God. God gave the Scripture by inspiring His chosen men who composed and recorded it. The Scriptures are infallible and without error, in whole or in part, in the original writings. The Scriptures are the unique and final authority on all matters of faith and practice. There are no other writings similarly inspired by God. Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:20‐21; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15‐17; Matthew 24:35; John 10:35, 17:17
____ God There is one living and true God, eternally existing in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each possesses equally all the attributes of deity and the characteristics of personality. The world and all things therein were created out of nothing by God alone. He continues to sustain His creation and to rule over it. God deserves worship and obedience. Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5‐7; 1 Corinthians 8:4; John 4:24; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14
____ Jesus Christ Jesus Christ is God. He became man by miraculous conception and virgin birth. He lived a life of perfect obedience to the Father and voluntarily atoned for the sins of all mankind by dying on the cross as their substitute. He arose bodily from the dead, appeared to more than 500 believers, and ascended into Heaven where He returned to the right hand of the Father. He is the head of the Church and continually makes intercession for believers. He shall return to earth again, personally, bodily and visibly. John 1:1, 3, 14; 5:23, 10:30, 14:9‐10; Colossians 1:15‐17, 2:9; Hebrews 1:2; Philippians 2:5‐8; Micah 5:2; 1 Peter 2:24; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23‐25; Luke 1:26‐35
____ Holy Spirit The Holy Spirit is God. He was sent into the world by the Father and the Son. He enlightens the minds of unbelievers, awakens in them a recognition of their need of a Savior and regenerates them. At the moment of salvation, the Holy Spirit permanently indwells every believer and uniquely endows each believer with at least one gift for the effective working of the Church. These gifts are given by God as He determines. The Holy Spirit guides believers in understanding and applying the Scripture, and never leads believers contrary to the Scriptures. The Holy Spirit's power and control are appropriated by faith, making it possible for a believer to live a life of Christ‐like character and to bear fruit to the glory of the Father. 1 Corinthians 2:10‐13, 12:4‐5, 13; Acts 5:3‐4, 28:25‐26; Ephesians 4:3; Hebrews 9:14; 2 Corinthians 13:14; John 16:13; Matthew 28:19; Hebrews 10:15‐17
____ Salvation God's desire is to call everyone into fellowship with Himself. Man was originally created to have fellowship with God. But man sinned through disobedience and thus alienated himself from God. When Adam sinned, all of creation fell from fellowship with God. All individuals inherit a sin nature, they suffer the consequences of the fall, and are thus in need of restoration to God. Salvation of mankind is wholly the work of God by His grace and not the result in whole or in part of human work or goodness. Salvation must be personally received by faith in the work and person of Jesus Christ and demonstrated by repentance from sin. John 1:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:7, 2:1‐7, 8‐10; 1 Peter 1:18‐19; 2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 3:5
_____ The Church All believers become members of Christ's Body, the one Church universal. Out of obedience to God, believers are to gather together for worship, prayer, teaching of the Word of God, observance of baptism and communion as ordinances established by Jesus Christ, fellowship, equipping for and service to the Body through the development and use of gifts, and outreach to the world. Wherever believers meet regularly there is the local expression of the Church. Under the care of elders, its members are to work together in love and unity, with the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:22, 2:11‐3:6, 4:11‐12, 5:23‐32; Colossians 1:18; Hebrews 10:25; Acts 20:28; 1 Timothy 3:8‐13, 5:17; Titus 1:5‐9; 1 Peter 5:1‐5
_____ Human Destiny At death, believers enter into the presence of Christ, and at His coming will receive a glorified body, be received into eternal communion with God, and will be rewarded for faithfulness. At death, unbelievers await a final judgment in which they will continue to be separated from God into everlasting conscious punishment. John 6:39; Romans 8:19‐23; Luke 23:43; Philippians 1:23; 2 Corinthians 5:8; 2 Corinthians 4:14; John 5:29; Revelation 20:13-15
