|We believe in the Scriptures of the
Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God and
inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of
supreme and final authority in faith and life.
We believe in one God, eternally existing
in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was
begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,
and is true God and true man.
We affirm our belief that man was
created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby
incurred not only physical death but also that spiritual
death which is separation from God, and that all human
beings are born with a sinful nature and that those who
reach moral responsibility become sinners in thought,
word, and deed. (By this statement we affirm that
man was created by a direct act of God in His image, not
from previously existing creatures, and that all of
mankind sinned in Adam and Eve, the historical parents
of the entire human race.)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ
died for our sins, according to the Scriptures as a
representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that
all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of
His shed blood.
We believe in the resurrection and
crucified body of the Lord, in His ascension into
heaven, and in His present life there for us as High
Priest and Advocate.
We believe in "that blessed hope," the
personal, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior,
We believe that all who receive by
faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy
Spirit and thereby become children of God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection
of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of
the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
