HOLY BIBLE
The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final
authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible
and inerrant (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26).


TRINITY
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
These three are co-equal and co-eternal (Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19;
Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11; John 14:9-11; 2 Corinthians 13:14).


JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. Jesus is 100% God and
100% man. 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. (John 1:1,14, 20:28; I
Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5).


VIRGIN BIRTH
Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third
person of the Trinity) in the virgin Mary's womb; therefore, He is the Son of God (Isaiah
7:14; Matthew 1:18, 23-25; Luke 1:27-35).


SIN AND THE HUMAN CONDITION
Humanity was created good and upright, but fell through voluntary transgression. In
Adam, all humanity sinned and is alienated from God. Humanity's only hope of
redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans
5:12-21).


REGENERATION
For anyone to know God, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential (John
3:3-7; 6:44, 65).


SALVATION
We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ – trusting in what He did through
His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good
works or of any human efforts (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5;
Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31).


REPENTANCE
Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to
follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the
Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate
salvation (Acts 2:21, 27-29; 3:19; I John 1:9).


SANCTIFICATION
Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order
to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present
ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a
godly life (I Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; II Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, Romans 8:29,
12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11).


JESUS CHRIST LIVES IN ALL BELIEVERS
Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside
them by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their lives over to Him, thus
making Jesus the Lord of their life as well as Savior. They put their trust in what Jesus
accomplished for them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead
(John 1:12; John 14:17, 23; John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelations 3:20).


BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension,
to empower the Church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth (Joel
2:28-29; Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5,2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38,
44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6).


THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit manifests Himself through a variety of spiritual gifts to build up and
equip the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power
of the Gospel. The Bible lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts
may occur in various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire
the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with
the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of biblical parameters. (Hebrews
2:4; Romans 1:11; 12:4-8; Ephesians 4:16; II Timothy 1:5-6, 1 Timothy 4:14; I
Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; I Peter 4:10-11).


THE CHURCH
The church is the Body of Christ, the place where God lives through the Spirit, with
divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus' great commission. Every person who is
born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers.
There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1:22-23;
2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23).


TWO SACRAMENTS:
Water Baptism: Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is
commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Acts 8:12, 36-38;
10:47-48).


The Lord's Supper: This is a unique time of communion in the presence of God when
the elements of bread and grape juice (the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ)
are taken in remembrance of Jesus' sacrifice on the Cross (Matthew 26:26-29; I
Corinthians 10:16-17; 11:23-26).


HEALING OF THE SICK
Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the
commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign that should follow believers.
It is also a part of Jesus' work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit. (Psalm
103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-8; James 5:14-16; I
Corinthians 12:9, 28; Romans 11:29).


GOD’S WILL FOR PROVISION
It is the Father's will for believers to become whole, healthy and successful in all areas
of life. But because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while
on Earth. That fact, though, should never prevent all believers from seeking the full
benefits of Christ’s provision in order to better serve others.
•Spiritual (John 3:3-11; II Corinthians 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-13).
•Mental and Emotional (II Timothy 1:7; Philippians 4:7-8; Romans 12:2; Isaiah
26:3).
•Physical (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:17; I Peter 2:24).
•Financial (Joshua 1:8; Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; II Corinthians 9:6-10;
Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Psalm 34:10, 84:11; Philippians 4:19).

 
RESURRECTION

Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days
after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be
resurrected; those who are saved to the resurrection of life and those who are lost to
the resurrection of eternal damnation (Luke 24:1-8, 36-39; John 2:19-22; 20:26-28;
Acts 24:15; I Corinthians 15:42-44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:20-21).


HEAVEN
Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ
(Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34; John 17:24; II Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews
11:16; I Peter 1:3-4).


HELL
After living one life on earth, unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to Hell where
they will live eternally separated from God along with the Devil and the fallen angels
(Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8).


SECOND COMING
Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish
His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures (Matthew
24:30-31; 26:62-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:15-18; II Thessalonians 1:6-10;
Revelation 1:7).
