THE BIBLE

The Bible being verbally and plenary inspired by God is inerrant. It is the authority for all matters of faith and practice

(2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; 3:16).

GOD

God is eternal, needing no introduction (Genesis 1:1). God is beyond description or comprehension (Isaiah 55:8-9);
I AM (Exodus 3:14). There is only one God, but in the unity of the Godhead there are three eternal and coequal Persons, the same in substance but distinct in subsistence (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is 100% man and 100% God (Philippians 2). His purpose in coming to earth is to seek and save that which is lost
(Luke 19:10). Salvation was made possible through His death, burial and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:3-5)

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is God (John 14:16; Romans 8:15; 1 Corinthians 6:11) The Holy Spirit illuminates the minds of the believer

(John 16:13-15; 1 Corinthians 2:10-13; 3:2) and convicts the mind of the unbeliever (John 16:7-11).

SALVATION

Salvation is by grace through faith, not of works (John 3; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5)

SIN

All men have a sin nature resulting from man's participation in Adam's first sin (Romans 5:12).? The sin nature is the capacity and inclination to do those things that can in no way commend us to God (Romans 1:18-3:20; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 4:18).

THE CHURCH

The church is an organism of which Christ is the Head and is composed of all regenerated people (Colossians 1:18). As an organization it appears in many different forms.

SANCTIFICATION

Sanctification has three aspects. Positionally, set apart to God (1 Corinthians 6:11; Hebrews 10:10). This is as we are today in the eyes of God. Practically increasingly we are set apart from sin to God in our daily lives (1 Peter 1:16). Potential sanctification is being fully set apart to God when we are brought into perfect accord when we see Christ and become as He is (1 John 3:1-3).
