Authority The scripture, both 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 3:16-17)

God There is one true God, existing eternally as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The triune nature, or Trinity, is God, being one in three persons. (Isaiah 43:10-11, John 10:30)

Jesus Christ The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God.  The scriptures declare His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutionary work on the cross, bodily resurrection from the dead, and exaltation to the right hand of God.  (Matthew 1:23, I Peter 2:22, II Corinthians 5:21)

People Man was created good and upright.  However, Adam, by voluntary transgression, fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. God created Adam and Eve and from their children the earth was populated. God established the pattern of one man married to one woman as the only acceptable practice for a holy sexual union.  (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:17, Genesis 3:6, Romans 1:26-27, I Cor. 6:9-11)

Salvation     Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  By repentance toward the Lord Jesus Christ, and by the washing, regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life. (Titus 3:5-7)

Holy Spirit All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire, according to the command of the Lord Jesus Christ.  This experience is distinct from the previous experience of the new birth.  Common evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost is the sign of speaking in tongues, although the most significant evidence is a supernatural ability and motivation to witness. (Acts 1:4, 8)

Healing Divine healing is an integral part of the Gospel.  Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers. (Matthew 8:16, 17)

Ordinances  Baptism by immersion in water is commanded in the Scriptures.  Holy Communion, or The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ.  (Romans 6:4, I Corinthians 10:16)

The Future Jesus Christ will come again to earth personally, bodily, and visibly.  His coming will precede the age of universal peace and righteousness foretold in the Scriptures.   Those who have fallen asleep in Christ will be resurrected and translated together with those who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord.  There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works.  Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet will be consigned to everlasting punishment, which is the second death.  According to His promise redeemed man will look for the new heaven and the new earth.  (Titus 2:13, Revelation 21:1)
