The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God, are trustworthy in all they affirm, and are our rule of faith and practice.
There is one living and true God, revealed in nature as the Creator, Preserver, and Righteous Governor of the universe; and in the Scriptures as Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit—one God, infinitely wise and good, whom all intelligent
creatures are supremely to love, adore, and obey.
Jesus Christ is God in the flesh; in His divine nature He is truly and fully God; in His human nature He is truly and fully man. The mediator between God and man, once crucified, He is now risen and glorified, and is our ever-present Savior and Lord.
The Holy Spirit
The Scriptures assign to the Holy Spirit all the attributes of God.
The Government of God
God exercises a wise and benevolent providence over all beings and all things by maintaining the constitution and laws of nature. He also performs special acts, not otherwise provided for, as the highest welfare of men requires.
The Sinfulness of Man
Man was created innocent, but by disobedience fell into a state of sin and condemnation. His posterity, therefore, inherits a fallen nature of such tendencies that all who come to years of accountability, sin and become guilty before God.
The Work of Christ
The Son of God by His incarnation, life, sufferings, death and resurrection effected for all a redemption from sin that is full and free and is the ground of salvation by faith.
The Terms of Salvation
The conditions of salvation are: (1) Repentance or sincere sorrow for sin and hearty renunciation of it. (2) Faith or the unreserved committal of one’s self to Christ as Savior and Lord with purpose to love and obey Him in all things. In the exercise of saving faith, the soul is renewed by the Holy Spirit, freed from the dominion of sin, and becomes a child of God. (3) Continuance of faith until death.
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the ordinances to be continued under the Gospel.
Resurrection, Judgement, and Final Retribution
The Scriptures teach the resurrection of all men at the last day. Those who by grace persevere in faith will come forth to the resurrection of life, and those who have rejected God’s grace unto the resurrection of condemnation; then the wicked will “go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
