We hold to these truths . . .

God is eternally existent in three Persons--Father, Son and Holy Spirit--and He created everything out of nothing for His own purpose and glory.

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant and infallible in the original manuscripts, and the supreme and final authority in matters of faith and life, interpreted by the Holy Spirit to each individual believer.

Man was created in the image of God, and when he sinned the race incurred both physical and spiritual death; thus man became alienated from God and incapable of remedying his sinful condition by his own means.

The Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal, divine, unique Son of God, was, at His incarnation, born of the virgin Mary, who had been overshadowed by the power of God the Holy Spirit, and He lives eternally a true man without ceasing to be truly God.

The Lord Jesus Christ lived a sinless and perfect life that fully pleased His Father; He died for sin on the cross, bearing the judgment demanded by God's holy justice against sin, for the demonstration of His righteousness at the present time, that He may be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

The Lord Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead, never to die again, and is ascended to the right hand of the Father, where He intercedes as High Priest and Advocate on behalf of all who believe in Him.

The ground of justification ever remains solely the righteousness of Jesus Christ. This righteousness from God is imputed to sinners by faith alone. Faith secures the righteousness of Christ for justification. Good works done in faith, even though prompted by a desire to please God, are never the ground of justification. Neither is faith itself the ground of justification. Salvation is by the grace of God (a free gift) and not through the grace of God (infused power for ethical improvement). Those who are so justified are adopted into the Family of God. They become, as children of God, partakers of the divine nature and of eternal life.

The Holy Spirit baptizes all true believers into the one true Church, His Body; He indwells them eternally, bestows spiritual gifts upon them, and empowers them for service and holy living.

The Scriptures have given us everything pertaining to life and godliness, including not only the gospel of salvation from the penalty of sin but instruction in righteousness for present sanctification and victorious living to the glory of God.

Two ordinances, baptism and the Lord's Supper, which have no bearing on salvation, are nevertheless to be observed in obedience to the Lord.

At death the souls of the redeemed pass immediately into Christ's presence, to remain there until the resurrection of their bodies at Christ's return. At death the souls of the lost go to Sheol, where they remain until they are brought before Christ at the Great White Throne final judgment, to be judged according to their works and cast into the Lake of Fire, there to remain eternally.
