The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are
the written word of God. The Bible is divinely inspired and inerrant
throughout. Its assertions are factually true in all the original
autographs. It is the supreme authority, not only in all matters of
faith and conduct, but in everything it teaches. Its authority is not
limited to spiritual, religious or redemptive themes but includes its
assertions in other fields such as history and science.
The final guide to the interpretation of Scripture is Scripture itself.
The work of the Holy Spirit is essential for a proper understanding
All mankind are sinners, inherently from Adam and individually (by
choice) and are therefore subject to God's wrath and condemnation.
Mankind can be freed from the penalty and power of sin only through
the sacrificial death and shed blood of Jesus Christ, and His
complete and bodily Resurrection from the dead.
Salvation is received by faith alone in Christ alone and expressed in
the individual's repentance, recognition of the death of Christ as
full payment for sin, and acceptance of the risen Christ as Saviour,
Lord and God. There is no salvation other than through faith in Christ.
All things necessary for our salvation are recorded in Scripture.
The Holy Spirit enables the sinner to repent and believe in Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit lives and works in each believer to produce the
fruits of righteousness.
Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.
Jesus Christ had a real and perfect manhood.
Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead, ascended to Heaven, and is
currently seated at the right hand of God the Father.
Jesus Christ shall come into the air for
His Church and take them to the place He has prepared where the
marriage between Jesus Christ and His Church will take place and be
celebrated in the marriage supper of the Lamb (Revelation 19:7-9).
Jesus Christ will then return to this earth with
His Church (His wife) and reign in person for a literal period of one
thousand years (Revelation 20:1-10).
After the thousand year reign of Jesus Christ, the mortal living and
the dead will stand before God and be judged according to their
works, and sentenced (Revelation 20:11-15). At the same time, this
present earth will be destroyed and a new heaven and earth created
wherein dwelleth righteousness (Revelation 21:1 ff.;
2 Peter 3:13; Isaiah 65:17).
The ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper (Communion) were
instituted by Jesus Christ. Baptism does not convey regeneration, but
is a simple act of obedience. The Lord's Supper is not a sacrifice
for sin nor does it involve any change in the substance of the bread
and wine, but is an act of obedience in remembrance of the
substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Satan is the personal spiritual adversary of both God and man.
Those who do not believe in Christ are subject to everlasting
punishment, but believers enjoy eternal life with God.
The account of Creation in Genesis should be interpreted literally,
that is, God created the universe and everything in it in six
consecutive twenty-four hour days.
The various original kinds, including mankind, were made by direct
creative acts of God.
The great Flood of Genesis was a literal historic event and worldwide
in its extent and effect.
The fall into sin of Adam and Eve, the first created man and woman,
is the basis for the necessity of salvation for mankind.
Death and bloodshed entered into this world subsequent to, and as a
direct consequence of, man's sin.
