“FOR WE PREACH NOT OURSELVES, BUT CHRIST JESUS THE LORD...”
We believe that the Holy Bible was (a) written by men controlled by the Holy Spirit; (b) that it is truth without any admixture of error for its matter; and (c) therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the age, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man; the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds and opinions should be tried.
The True God
We believe, that there is (a) one, and only one, living and true God: an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the maker and supreme ruler of heaven and earth; (b) inexpressibly glorious in Holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence, and love; (c) that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
God the Son
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, is both fully God and fully man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He grew and developed as a man without sin.
He died by crucifixion to pay the penalty for mankind’s sin. He was buried, rose bodily from the grave on the third day and ascended to Heaven where, at the Father’s right hand, He prays for the saints.
He will return and ultimately establish His kingdom on earth.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person; (a) equal with God the Father and (b) God the Son and (c) of the same nature; (d) that He was active in the creation; (e) that in His relation to the unbelieving world He restrains the Evil One until God's purpose is fulfilled; (f) that He convicts of sin, of judgment, and of righteousness; (g) that He bears witness to the Truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony; (h) that He is the agent in the New Birth; (i) that He seals, baptizes, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies, and helps the believer. And that the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance) is the evidence of His indwelling rather than the speaking in tongues and other spectacular demonstrations.
