The Holy Bible was written by men, yet divinely inspired. It is God's revelation of Himself to man. The Bible is true and reliable, free from error and its message is able to be understood by all believers who approach it in faith and humility.
There is one and only true God. …The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each has distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
God the Father
God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. …God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
God the Son
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. Conceived of the Holy Spirit, he was born of a virgin, yet wholly God and wholly man. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross in our place as a sacrifice sufficient for the sins of all of mankind. He was buried in a tomb but was raised from the grave after three days. He ascended into Heaven where he now sits at the Father's right hand.
God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. …He exalts Christ. He convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. …He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.
Man was created by the special act of God, in His own image, and is the crowning work of His creation. …By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. … The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore every man possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.
Salvation is a gift offered freely to all who accept it and put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.
Baptism & Lord's Supper
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. …It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby believers memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
