The entire Bible is God-inspired and inerrant as recorded in the original manuscripts. God’s truth is fully and clearly revealed through the Bible; it does not need to be interpreted through other writings.
One God exists as three persons – the Father, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. They are co-equal, and each is fully God.
Jesus Christ is both God and the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and physically died on the cross to make payment for the sins of mankind. When He took on a human nature He never ceased to be God; He was both fully God and fully man. He rose from the dead and ascended to heaven, where He acts as the Mediator – the High Priest – for believers.
The Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God the Father and with the Son.
Heaven and hell are real places. Heaven is the place where God resides; true followers of Jesus Christ will spend eternity with Him in heaven. Hell is the place that God created for Satan and his fallen angels to be punished for their rebellion against Him.
Man has a sinful nature and is spiritually dead – that is, separated from God. He would be hopelessly trapped in this state were it not for God’s grace and spiritual regeneration, through faith in His Son.
People are saved from hell by admitting that they are sinners and by accepting, by faith, Jesus’ sacrificial death in their behalf. Salvation cannot be attained by church membership or by good works; it is a gift of God’s grace, obtained through faith.
