In God, and that the Bible is His infallible Word.

Genesis 1; Isaiah 44:8; Hebrews 1:1-2; 2 Peter1:21 ]

 

That there is only one God who is eternal, and who consists of three persons:  God the Father; God the Son; God the Holy Spirit.

 [ 1 John 5:7 ]

God created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them in six days according to the Bible.

Genesis 1 ]

All mankind has sinned from the beginning through disobedience to the Word of God, and consequently has come short of the glory of God that is only to be known in the kingdom of Heaven.

[ Genesis 3:1-19Psalm 14:2-3; Romans 3:23 ]

We cannot deliver ourselves from God's wrath on account of our sin nor can we do anything ourselves to merit eternal life in the kingdom of Heaven.

[ Isaiah 64:6Romans 7:21-25John 15:5 ]

 

God has ever had a people whom He loves and for whom He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to redeem them by His death and save them from the condemnation of their sins.

[ Ephesians 1:3-5; 1 Peter 1:18-20; Matthew 1:21 ]

 

That the Holy Spirit calls those for whom Christ died to the knowledge of the Truth and to a saving belief in Jesus Christ; whereby they repent of sin and seek to follow their Lord consistent with the Word of God.

[ 1 Thessalonians 1:5-6; 2 Timothy 1:9; Ephesians 4:1-3 ]

That Jesus rose again from the dead, and ascended into heaven from where He will return at the end of time.

[ John 20:1-20; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Acts 1:9-11 ]

That in the last day all those, and only those, for whom Christ died, shall rise to live eternally in Heaven with Him.

[ John 6:38-40; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 7:9-17 ]

That God has ordained one day in seven as a Sabbath Day of rest and for worship upon earth. The Christian Sabbath (Sunday) is the first day of the week, for on this day Jesus Christ rose from the dead. 

[ Exodus 20:9-11; Acts 20:7 ]
