• The sixty-six canonical books of the Bible as originally written were inspired of God. They constitute the authoritative guide in faith and practice. The Bible is the primary source for leading people to understand who God is, for teaching them about a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and for instructing them in ways to live the Christian life.
  • There is one God, the Creator and Preserver of all things, infinite in being and perfection. He exists eternally in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who are of one nature and equal in power and glory.
  • The eternally pre-existent Son became incarnate without human father, by being born of the Virgin Mary. Thus, in the Lord Jesus Christ, divine and human natures were united in one Person, both natures being whole, perfect, and distinct. To effect salvation, he lived a sinless life and died on the cross as the sinner’s substitute, shedding his blood for the remission of sins. On the third day he rose from the dead in the body which had been laid in the tomb. He ascended to the right hand of the Father, where he performs the ministry of intercession. He shall come again, personally and visibly, to complete his saving work and to consummate the eternal plan of God.
  • The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Triune God and applies to man the work of Christ. The Holy Spirit is the comforter sent by Christ to convince, convict, and judge the world of sin. The Holy Spirit indwells the believer at conversion and seals them until the day of redemption. The Holy Spirit gives gifts to believers to carry out the ministry of God in the church and work of God on earth.
  • God created mankind in God’s own image. By disobedience, mankind fell from their sinless state through the temptation by Satan. This fall plunged humanity into a state of sin and spiritual death, and brought upon the entire race the sentence of eternal death. From this sinful condition we can be saved only by the grace of God, through faith, on the basis of the sacrifice of Christ, and by the work of the Holy Spirit. By justification and adoption we are given a right standing before God; by regeneration, sanctification, and glorification our nature is renewed.
  • When we have turned to God in penitent faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, each believer is accountable for living a life pleasing to God. Believers are able to do this by striving to live a Christ-like life and by cultivating the fruit of the Spirit. It is our responsibility to contribute by word and deed to the universal spread of the Gospel.
  • At the end of the age, the bodies of the dead shall be raised. The righteous shall enter into full possession of eternal bliss in the presence of God, and the wicked shall be condemned to eternal death.
