The Holy Bible was written by men, divinely inspired by God, and is the revelation of Himself to man.
2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12
Genesis 1:26-30; 2:5, 7, 18-22; 3; 9:6; Psalm 1:1-6; Romans 1:19-32; 8:14-18, 29; Ephesians 2:1-22; Colossians 1:21-22; 3:9-11
God's Purpose of Grace
The mystery of election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the free agency of man, and comprehends all the means in connection with the end. It is a glorious display of God’s sovereign goodness, and is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end. Believers shall be kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.
John 1:12-14; 3:16; Acts 20:32; Romans 5:9-10; 8:28-39; 10:12-15; Ephesians 1:4-23; 2:1-10; 3:1-11; Colossians 1:12-14; 1 John 1:7-9; 2:19; 3:2
Baptism & The Lord's Supper
Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
The Lord’s Supper (Communion) is a symbolic act whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, remember the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
Matthew 3:13-17; 26:26-30; 28:19-20; Mark 1:9-11; 14:22-26; Acts 2:41-42; 1 Corinthians 10:16, 21; 11:23-29
The Kingdom of God includes both His general sovereignty over the universe and His particular kingship over men who willfully acknowledge Him as King. Christians pray and labor that the Kingdom may come and God’s will be done on earth. The full consummation of the Kingdom awaits the return of Jesus Christ and the end of this age.
Jeremiah 23:5-6, Matthew 3:2; 4:8-10, 23; 12:25-28; 13:1-52; 25:31-46; 26:29; Mark 1:14-15; 9:1; Luke 4:43; 8:1; 9:2; 12:31-32; Luke 17:20-21; 23:42; Romans 5:17; 8:19; 1 Corinthians 15:24-28; Colossians 1:13; Revelation 1:6, 9; 5:10; 11:15; 21-22
Evangelism & Missions
It is the command and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations.
Genesis 12:1-3; Matthew 24:14; 28:18-20; Luke 10:1-18; 24:46-53; John 14:11-12; 15:7-8; Acts 1:8; 2; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 3:1-11; Revelation 22:17
God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, birth or adoption. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime.
Genesis 2:18-25; Ephesians 5:22 – 33, 6:1-4; Colossians 3:18-21
There is one and only one living and true God. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
A. God the Father
Genesis 1:1; 2:7; Matthew 6:9; 7:11; 23:9; 28:19; Mark 1:9-11 John 4:24; 5:26; 14:6-13; 17:1-8; Acts 1:7 Romans 8:14-15; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 4:6 Colossians 1:15; 1 Timothy 1:17; Hebrews 11:6; 12:9; 1 John 5:7
B. God the Son
Christ is the eternal Son of God. His death on the cross made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, partaking of the nature of God and of man, and in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and

C. God the Holy Spirit
Genesis 1:2; John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8; 2:1-4, 38; 4:31; 5:3; 6:3; 7:55; 19:1-6; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 2:10-14; 3:16; 12:3-11; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19; 1 Timothy 3:16; 4:1; 2 Timothy 3:16
Salvation involves the redemption of the whole
A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God’s grace whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Savior. Justification is God’s gracious and full acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent and believe in Christ.
B. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is set apart to God’s purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual perfection through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him.
C. Glorification is the culmination of salvation and is the final blessed and abiding state of the redeemed.
John 1:11-14, 29; 3:3-21, 36; 5:24; 10:9, Romans 1:16-18; 2:4; 3:23-25; 4:3; 5:8-10; 6:1-23; 8:1-18; 29-39; 10:9-10, 13; Galatians 2:20; 3:13; 5:22-25; 6:15; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-22; 4:11-16; Philippians 2:12-13; Colossians 1:9-22; 3:1
The New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel. The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of Christ. Matthew 16:15-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-42, 47; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 3:16; 5:4-5; 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:8-11, 21; 5:22-32; Philippians 1:1; Colossians 1:18; 1 Timothy 3:1-15; 4:14
A day of the week prioritized as the Lord’s Day. God commanded its regular observance.
Exodus 20:8-11; Matthew 12:1-12; 28:1; Luke 24:1-3, 33-36; John 4:21-24; 20:1, 19-28; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:1-2; Colossians 2:16; 3:16;
God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness.
Isaiah 2:4; 11:9; Matthew 16:27; 18:8-9, 19:28; 24:27, 30, 36, 44; 25:31-46; 26:64; Mark 8:38; 9:43-48; Luke 12:40, 48; 16:19-26, 17:22-37; 21:27-28; John 14:1-3; Revelation 1:18; 3:11; 20:1-22:13
God is the owner of all the earth. Man is a steward or manager entrusted to be led of God’s Spirit to hold all things loosely and to generously and abundantly utilize God’s resources for the glory of God.
