There is one God, the Creator and Preserver of all things. He exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
The sixty-six canonical books of the Bible as originally written comprise God's inerrant Word. They are our sole authority for what we are to believe and how we are to live.
Mankind, created in the image of God, fell into sin in Adam and is now sinful both by nature and by choice, the outcome of which is eternal death. From this condition we can be saved only by the grace of God, through faith, on the basis of the work of the Son, and by the agency of the Holy Spirit.
The eternal Son became incarnate by being born of the virgin Mary; He is both true God and true man. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross as our substitute, shedding His blood for the remission of our sins. He rose bodily from the dead and will return again bodily to complete His saving work and to consummate the plan of God.
As believers who have turned to God by faith in Jesus Christ, we are accountable to God for living a life separated from sin and characterized by the fruit of the Spirit. It is our responsibility to contribute by word and deed to the mission of the church.
The church is a living organism comprised of all believers in Jesus Christ. We are to engage in the building up of the Body of Christ through the ministry of the Word, the celebration of the Lord's Supper, and the practice of Baptism, resulting in a visible testimony to the surrounding community.
At the time of God's choosing, the bodies of all persons will experience resurrection: believers to a state of eternal joy in the presence of God, and unbelievers to eternal punishment.
