This assembly accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed will of God, the all sufficient rule of faith and practice.
- The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God (II Timothy 3:16). The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Peter 1:21).
- There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19). The one true God has revealed himself as the eternally self-existant “I AM,” the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Isaiah 43:10-11; Luke 3:22).
- In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years (John 1:1)
- In the blessed hope-the rapture of the Church at Christ’s coming (Titus 2:13)
- The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ (John 14:6)
- Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation (Titus 3:5)
- In water baptism by immersion (Matthew 28:19)
- The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing in prayer (I Peter 2:24)
- The baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for itIn the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life (Galatians 5:16-25)
- In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to eternal separation from God. (Revelation 20:11-15)
- The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, and we believe in his deity for the Scriptures declare: His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23: Luke 1:31, 35); His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26; I Peter 2:22); His miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38); His substitutionary work on the cross (I Corinthians 15:3; II Corinthians 5:21); His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; I Corinthians 15:4); and His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 1:9, 11; 2:33; Philippians 2:9-11; Hebrews 1-3).
