The Bible is the inspired, inerrant and authoritative Word of God for Christian faith and living.
(The Bible) - John 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:15-17; Heb. 4:12; 1 Pet. 1:23-25; 2 Pet. 1:20-21
That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(The Trinity) - Matt. 28:19; John 10:30-33, 15:26; Rom. 8:9; Col. 1:15, 2:9; Heb. 1:2-3
He reigns with providential care over the universe with all power, all wisdom, and all love.
(God the Father) - Genesis 1:1; Exodus 3:14; Isaiah 64:8; Ephesians 4:6; Colossians 1:17; 1 Timothy 1:17
In the deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return in power and glory.
(God the Son) - Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John; Heb. 4:15, 9:26-28; 1 Pet. 2:22; Rom. 3:21-26; Acts 7:56; Col. 3:1; 1 Cor. 15; Acts 1:11
In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling every Christian is able to live a godly life.
(The Holy Spirit) - John; Acts 1:8; Rom. 8:1-17; Gal. 5:16-25; 1 Thess. 5:15-17
That all people are lost sinners and must be regenerated by the Holy Spirit, believe in the gospel (see below) and turn to Christ in saving faith. Thus, salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
(Salvation) - John 3:3-8, 16-21; Acts 4:12; Rom. 3:21-26, 6:23; Eph. 2:1-10
Both believers and unbelievers will after death have eternal destinies: those believing to eternal life with Christ and those unbelieving to eternal punishment in hell.
(Eternal Dwelling) - Matt. 25; John 6:40; 1 Cor. 15; Rev. 20:11-15
