The Scriptures (the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments) are verbally inspired by God, the only written revelation from God to man. Scripture reveal the being, nature, and character of God, the nature of God’s creation, and especially His plan for redemption of human beings through Jesus. The Bible without error (historically, morally, scientifically, and spiritually) and is the authoritative rule of faith and conduct for humanity.
Romans 15:4, 16:25-26 / 2 Timothy 3:15-17 / 2 Peter 1:19-21
There is one holy, infinite, perfect, eternal, and personal God, Creator of and sovereign Sustainer of all things. This one God exists eternally and simultaneously as three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All three persons in the Godhead share equally and completely their one divine nature, and are therefore the same God, coequal in power, nature, and glory.
Deuteronomy 6:4 / Matthew 28:19 / Genesis 1 & 2
God the Father
God as Father reigns with providential care over His creation and over the flow of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise and looks upon humanity with an attitude of fatherly love. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 8:5-6 / Ephesians 4:6 / Galatians 3:26-29 / 1 Peter 1:3-5 / 1 John 3:1
Jesus, the Promised Messiah, is the second person of the Trinity, the eternal Son of God. The Scriptures foretold and declare His virgin birth, His sinless life, the miracles of His ministry, His substitutionary death on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead, and His return to the right hand of God to be our High Priest and Advocate.
Isaiah 9:2-7 / Matthew 1:18-23 / Acts 2:22 / 1 Peter 2:22 & 24 / 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 / Philippians 2:9-11 / Hebrews 4:14-5:10 / Hebrews 7:23-27
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. The Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus in all that He does. The Holy Spirit convicts people of their sin, brings life to (regenerates) sinners, and lives in and through believers, empowering them for living the life that God has for them.
Acts 1:8 / Romans 8:9 / Titus 3:3-7
The Church refers to all who have been justified by God’s grace through faith alone in Christ alone. The Church (both local and universal) is united by the Holy Spirit and is the body of Christ in the world with three main purposes: to worship God, to reach the world with His message, and to equip people to live the lives God intended for them to live.
1 Corinthians 12 / Acts 1:8 / Mark 16:15-16 / Ephesians 4:11-16
