There is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4), who is infinitely holy (Leviticus 11:44-45), existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19).
Jesus Christ is the true God and the true man (Philippians 2:6-11). He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary (Luke 1:34-38). He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust (1 Peter 3:18), as a substitutionary sacrifice (Hebrews 2:9), and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood (Romans 5:9). He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures (Acts 2:23-24; 1 Corinthians 15:4). He is now at the right hand of Majesty on high as our great High Priest (Hebrews 8:1). He established a kingdom, not of this world, of righteousness and peace and He will come again to make it a complete reality (Matthew 26:64; John 18:36-37).
The Holy Spirit is a divine person (John 14:15-18), sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer (John 16:13; Acts 1:8), and convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment (John 16:7-11).
The Old and New Testaments, inerrant and infallible as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, kept accurate to this day. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:15-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26-27): he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men know good and evil and sin, choosing evil (Romans3:23; Genesis 3:22; Romans 5:12), and are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:20-23). The portion for the unrepentant and unbelieving people is existence forever in conscious torment, hell (Revelation 21:8; Matthew 25:46); and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss, in the presence of God (Revelation 21:1-4; Matthew 25:46).
Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and trust in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God (Titus 3:4-7; Acts 2:38).
It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly (1 Thessalonians 5:23), being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service (Acts 1:8; 2 Timothy 1:9; 1 Peter 2:9). This is both a one time and continual process in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion (Romans 6:1-14).
Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body, some in this world, but mostly in the world to come (Matthew 8:16-17; Revelation 21:3-4). Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and can be a privilege for the Church in this present age (James 5:13-16).
The Church consists of all those who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church (Ephesians 1:22-23), which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations (Matthew 28:19-20). The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Acts 2:41-47).
There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life (1 Corinthians 15:20-23); for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment (John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:15).
The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent (Hebrews 10:37; Revelation 22:20) and will be visible (Luke 21:27; Acts 1:11). This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service (Titus 2:11-14).
