I believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21).
I believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Jeremiah 10:10, Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 44:6, Matthew 28:18-20, John 14:6, 2 Corinthians 13:14).
I believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, (Isaiah 9:6, Colossians 2:9, Titus 2:13), in His virgin birth, (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:27,) in His sinless life, (1 Peter 2:22, Hebrews 4:15) in His miracles, (John1:1-11,Luke 5:1-11,Matthew 8:23-27, John21:25) in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, (Colossians 1:20, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 9:14) in His bodily resurrection, (John 2:19, Mark 8:31, 9:31, 1 Corinthians 15:13, 16) in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, (Mark 16:19, 1 Peter 3:22, Acts 1:6-11) and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 24:27, Titus 2:13, Revelation 11:15)
I believe that belief in one’s heart and confession from one’s lips, acknowledging the sacrificial death of Jesus the Christ on the Cross of Calvary is the only step to calling Him SAVIOR. (Acts 4:12, 1 Timothy 1:15, 2:5, 4:10.) To call Him LORD, I believe regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. (1 Corinthians 2:10, 11, Psalm 139:7, Hebrews 9:14)
I believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 4:31, Philippians 2:2, 1 Peter 3:8)
