BIBLE
The Bible is God's Word to us.  It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.  Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.(II Tim. 3:16; II Peter 1:21)                                                                                                                                  
GOD
The Godhead exists eternally in three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one God. (Deut. 6:4; Psalm 90:2; Matt. 28:19; John :1-3, 8:58, 10:30; Acts 5:3-4; II Cor. 13:14)
JESUS CHRIST
The eternal Son of God became incarnate in the Lord Jesus Christ, being born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. (John 1:1, 14, 18, 5:18; Phil 2:6-11; Col. 1:19; 2:9; I Tim. 2:5; Heb. 1:1-9; I John 5:20)
HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy spirit is the Third Person of the Godhead, who regenerates, indwells, baptizes, and seals all believers in Christ, and fills those yielded to God. (Acts 5:3-4; Matt. 28:19; John 3:3-7; Rom. 8:9; I Cor. 2:12; 6:19; 12:13; Eph. 1:13; 4:30; 5:18)
MAN
Man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adam all mankind fell into sin with the result that all men are sinners, hopelessly sinful in themselves, apart from the grace of God. (Gen. 1:27; 9:6; Rom. 3:23; 5:12; 8:6-7; Eph. 2:1-3)
SALVATION
Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it.  We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty.  When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Acts 4:12; 16:31; I Cor. 15:1-4; Eph. 2:8-9; John 1:12; John 3:16; Romans 5:1)
ASSURANCE
All who are born of the Spirit through faith in Christ can have assurance of salvation and are eternally secure in Christ. (John 10:27-29; Rom. 8:1; Eph. 1:13-14; John 5:24; II Tim. 1:12; I John 5:11-13)
ORDINANCES
The scriptural ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are for all believers in Christ. (Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 8:12, 36-38; I Cor. 11:23-26)
SATAN
Satan is one of several names given in the Bible for the personal being who is the source of all evil. The Bible pictures him as “your adversary the devil”, as a roaring lion, walking about, seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8) As the slanderer, the devil slanders God to man (Gen. 3:1-5) and man to God. (Job 1:9) As the adversary he successfully tempts man to rebel against God. Satan is a power second only to God but is subject to God. (Job 1:6) He was created by God and will one day be cast into the lake of fire. (Rev. 20:10)
RESURRECTION
The scriptures teach that Jesus Christ rose from the dead in His glorified body and all that put their trust in Him will be raised bodily to live with Him forever in His Kingdom. The Bible speaks of the resurrection of the Just and the resurrection of the Unjust. The Just will be raised to live with Christ and the Unjust will be raised to live in Hell. (1 Cor. 15, 1 John 3:2, 1 Thes. 4:1-18, Rev. 20:14-15)
