- The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of
God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His
will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for
Christian faith and life.
- In one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally
existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- That Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the
Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, a sacrifice
for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the
dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High,
He is now our High Priest and Advocate.
- That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ
and, during this age, to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, and
indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and
- That man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is,
therefore, lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can
salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
- That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the
only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only
such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and, thus become
children of God.
- That water baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed
by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded
as means of salvation.
- That the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving
faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are
united together in the Body of Christ of which He is the Head.
- That only those who are, thus, members of the true Church shall be
eligible for membership in the local church.

local church has the right, under Christ, to decide and govern its own

Christ and that this "Blessed Hope" has a vital bearing on the personal life
and service of the believer.
- In the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting
blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and
everlasting conscious punishment.
One of the most misunderstood doctrines of the Church is baptism.
Denominations are known by their method of baptism; the same English word,
baptism, is used to mean christening of babies, sprinkling, and immersion. No
wonder people are confused when they are asked, "Have you been baptized?"
The various denominations have widely conflicting views regarding the meaning
and significance of baptism. Some teach that there is sacramental power in
baptism--that is, that baptism is the means by which salvation is actually
applied to one's soul. If that is true, then one is not really saved until he
has been baptized. The logical outcome of that doctrine is the need for infant
baptism and last rites. MORE>>>
