WE TEACH that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  (Genesis 1:1, 26;  Matthew 28:19; John 1:1-3, 4:24; Acts 5:3-4; Romans 1:20; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 4:5-6)

WE TEACH that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary, and is fully God and fully man.  (Matthew 1:18:19;  Luke 1:26-38; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13)

WE TEACH that the Bible is the verbally and completely inspired Word of God, inerrant in its original manuscripts.  The Bible is our supreme and final authority in faith and life.  (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

WE TEACH that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God, and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and become guilty sinners in thought, word and deed.  (Genesis 1:26-27; 3:1-24; Romans 3:25, 5:12-18; 1 John 1:8)

WE TEACH that the Lord Jesus died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; that He bodily rose victorious from the grave on the third day; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood.  (Matthew 20:28, 28:6;  John 3:16; Romans 3:24-26, 5:1, 10:9; 1 Corinthians15:3, l4, 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:7, 1 John 2:2)

WE TEACH the personal imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ.  (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

WE TEACH that all who come by grace through faith to accept the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God forever.  (John 1:12-13, 3:3-5; Ephesians2:8-9; James 1:18; 1 Peter 1:23)

WE TEACH that while without faith it is impossible to please God, the possession of faith does not ensure health or prosperity.  (Luke 9:22-27; 2 Corinthians 11:23-31, 12:7-10; Philippians 1:29-30; 2 Timothy 3:8-12; Hebrew 11:6, 32-40)

WE TEACH the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting joy of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.  (Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:28-29; 1 Corinthians 15:12-57; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15)

WE TEACH that all Christians are baptized by the Holy Spirit and permanently indwelt by Him at the point of salvation.  The filling of the Holy Spirit is meant to be a continuous experience for the believer through submission to His controlling authority and power.  (John 14:16, 15:5; Romans 6:3-5, 8:9-11, 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 5:15-21)

WE TEACH that the body of Christ, the church, is composed of interdependent members who are born again, each having received from the Holy Spirit gifts which are to be exercised for the up-building of the whole body.  No one gift is given to all believers nor indicates regeneration, filling, or baptism by the Holy Spirit.  (Romans 12:4-8; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Ephesians 2:14-20, 4:4-16)

WE TEACH that Christ commanded His church to baptize believers as a proclamation of their faith and identification with Him and His church, and to celebrate communion as a living memorial of His redemptive death and as a reminder of present fellowship with Christ and His body.  (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:28-47, 8:36-40, 10:47, 18:8; Romans 6:3-5; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29)
