The Bible, consisting of 66 books, is God’s inspired Word, written by men who were moved by the Holy Spirit. The Scriptures are infallible and inerrant in their original manuscripts and authoritative in all matters of which they speak.
II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:21, I Peter 1:23-25, John 17:17

There is one living and true God, infinite, personal, perfect, all-knowing, all-powerful, ever-present, and eternally existing in three coequal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 4:35 & 39, Matthew 28:18-19, I Corinthians 8:4-6, II Corinthians 13:14,
Genesis 1:1, Romans 1:20, Psalms 147:5, Revelation 19:6, Jeremiah 23:24

Jesus Christ is the Son of God and our Lord and Savior, being absolute Deity and perfect man. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, was an infallible teacher and provided salvation through His substitutionary death on the cross and His bodily resurrection. He ascended into heaven and is now at the right hand of the Father interceding for all believers as their High Priest.
Luke 1:30-35, Romans 3:22-26, Acts 1:10-11, Philippians 2:5-11

The Holy Spirit convicts of sin, bears witness to the Gospel’s truth and draws people to the Savior. He regenerates or gives new birth and is the Helper of believers by empowering, teaching, comforting, guiding and producing Christ-like character in them. At regeneration He baptizes the believer into Christ’s body and gives him spiritual gifts for ministry.
John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, I Corinthians 12:1-3

God created the universe out of nothing. He created and gave life to the original plants and animals in the manner described in Genesis 1-3. (We reject both naturalistic and theistic evolution.)
Genesis 1:1-22, John 1:1-14, Colossians 1:12-17, Romans 1:19-20

God created man from the dust of the earth in holiness and in His own image. Through Satan’s temptation, Adam, the first man, disobeyed God and fell from his sinless state, bringing sin and death to the whole human race and suffering to all creation. Being sinners by nature and choice and without the holiness God requires, man needs to be reconciled to his Creator or suffer the eternal penalty for his sin.
Genesis 1:26-30, 3:1-24, Romans 1:19-32, Ephesians 2:1-22

Salvation comes to man only by God’s grace through faith apart from any human effort. God declares all those who put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ to be justified, righteous, redeemed, and reconciled and gives them eternal life as a free gift.
Romans 3:23-25, Ephesians 1:7, 2:8-22

The church is the body of which Christ is the Head and all true believers are members. It is made visible in local congregations of believers who gather in like faith for the purposes of worship, evangelism, edification, fellowship and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
Matthew 16:15-19, Acts 2:41-42, Romans 1:7, I Corinthians 1:2, 3:16, Ephesians 1:22-23

The return of Christ includes both the rapture of the Church and His return to earth from heaven. It will be sudden, visible, personal, with power and great glory according to His promise. He will establish His reign over the earth and judge both the dead and living in righteousness. Unbelievers will be consigned to everlasting punishment and believers will dwell with the Lord forever.
I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11, II Thessalonians 1:7-10

Church and state exist by the will of God, each with distinctive concerns and responsibilities, free from control by the other. Christians should pray for civil leaders and obey and support government in matters not contrary to Scripture.
I Corinthians 6:2, Romans 13:1-7, Titus 3:1, Matthew 22:21, I Peter 2:13

Christians are salt and light in society; opposing all evil; promoting truth, justice, goodness, and peace; aiding the needy; and preserving the dignity of people of all races and conditions.
Matthew 5:13-16, I Peter 3:15, Acts 2:42-47, Ephesians 2:10

The family is the basic unit of society and must be preserved in its integrity and stability. Biblical marriage is limited to a covenant relationship between a man and a woman. Parents are responsible for the nurture, instruction, and discipline of their children in the Lord.
Ephesians 5:1, 2, 15, Colossians 3:18-21, Proverbs 22:6, II Corinthians 12:14,
I Timothy 3:4, Titus 2:4, Proverbs 13:24, I Peter 3:1-7, Genesis 2:23-24
