In the Sovereignty of God
There is one God -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- the Creator, Sustainer, and Ruler of all. Through human sin and rebellion all of creation fell into brokenness and separation from the thrice holy God. But God, who is rich in mercy, determined through the incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension of His one and only Son to redeem His creation. It is through the finished work of Christ Jesus that lives are reborn, the church is empowered, and the
Kingdom of God is revealed.
In the Lordship of Jesus
Jesus Christ, the eternal Word of God, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit. He who is true God became true man united in one Person forever. Through His perfect, sinless life and His death on the cross, sinners are made saints through His atonement for sin and imputed righteousness. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Mediator. “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
In the Infallibility of Scripture
All Scripture is God-breathed, self-verifying, unwavering truth that demands our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The infallible Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God’s redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness…” (2 Timothy 3:16)
