Jesus

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures declare His: Virgin Birth (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31,35); Sinless Life (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22); Miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38); Substitutionary Work on the Cross (1 Corinthians15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21); Bodily Resurrection from the Dead (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4); Exaltation to the Right Hand of God (Acts1:9,11; 2:33; Philippians 2:9,11; Hebrews1:3); and His Personal & Imminent Return, and Millennial Reign. (I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 19:11-14; 20:1-6)

Bible

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. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)

God

The One True God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM,” the Creator of heaven and earth, the Redeemer of mankind. He has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 43:10,11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22)

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the person of the Godhead who indwells, baptizes, and gives supernatural gifts to all believers for empowerment to witness and serve. His present work is the same as that in the New Testament. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 2:4; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, James 5:14-16)

Mankind

Mankind was created good and upright, but by voluntary disobedience, fell into sin and thereby incurred physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God (Genesis1:26,27; 2:17; 3:6; Romans 5:12-19). Mankind’s only hope of salvation is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, giving us forgiveness of sin, eternal life, and power to live separated from evil through a regenerated heart. (John 3:16; 6:44,65; Romans 10:9-10; 12:1)

Church

The Church is to carry out the work of Christ in this world, equip people for ministry, and maintain the ordinances of the Church – Water Baptism and Communion. (Mark 16:15-16; 1 Corinthians 11:26; Ephesians 4:11-16)

Future

Death for the believer is not an event to be feared, but a promotion to anticipate. Jesus is currently preparing an eternal home for all who know Him – so that they may live with Him forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51,52; Revelation 21-22)
