• The Bible is the authoritative Word of God.

It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. It is inspired, infallible and inerrant. (see 2 Tim. 3:162 Peter 1:20, 21Prov. 30:5Rom. 16:2526).
  • The Bible is aliveapplicable, and called to be acted upon.

The Holy Scriptures are the active words spoken by our very active God. Everyday, He speaks them through the working of His Holy Spirit and through the testimonies of both God the Father and God the Son. They are applicable to every stage and situation in life, consistently calling the reader/hearer into action. (see Heb. 4:12; Psalm 119:9; 105; 130; James 1:22; Luke 11:28). 
  • Our God is a Triune God. 

There is one God, eternally existent in three per­sons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and coeternal (see 1 John 5:7Gen. 1:26Matt. 3:16, 1728:19Luke 1:35Isa. 9:6Heb. 3:7-11).
  • Jesus lived, died, was resurrected, and is coming again

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second per­son of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100-percent God and 100-percent man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed mir­acles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. (See John 1:11420:281 Tim. 3:16Isa. 9:6Phil. 2:5, 61 Tim. 2:5.)
  • Salvation is by grace through faith

We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts. It is experienced in three wonderful facets: "justification" at the moment of confession, "sanctification" during the consistent and life-long working of the Holy Spirit, and "glorification" upon the death of our earthly bodies. (see Eph. 2:8, 9; Gal. 2:16; 3:8; Titus 3:5; Rom. 10:9, 10; Acts 16:31; Heb. 9:22).
  • We are called to declare His glory and make disciples

Upon leaving this earth, Jesus gave His followers a great command and commission. We are called to proclaim the good news of the Kingdom, make disciples of all nations, and teach all that we have been taught. This includes breaking down strongholds, releasing the captives, helping and healing the oppressed, and comforting the broken and needy. (Psalm 96:3, Matt. 28:19; Isa. 1:17; Micah 6:8; 1 John 3:17;18).
