  • Article I The Scriptures

    Holy men of God wrote the Holy Scriptures as the Holy Spirit supernaturally moved them. They are, therefore, God’s perfect, inerrant, and infallible Word. The Scriptures are complete, final and preserved without error in the King James Bible (A.V. 1611). They are our sole authority and standard for all matters of faith and practice. 
    Timothy 3:15,16; 2 Peter 1:19-21

  • Article II God

    There is only one true sovereign and Holy God. Spirit in nature, God is a triune being eternally existing in three distinct and co-equal persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is all-knowing, all-powerful and ever-present. 
    Deuteronomy 6:4; John 4:24; Matthew 3:16,17; 1 John 3:20; Genesis 18:14; Matthew 28:20

  • Article III The Lord Jesus Christ

    The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who became man without ceasing to be God and so is complete in both His deity and humanity. In His incarnation He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, the only begotten of the Father, tempted as man yet without sin, He died for the sins of all mankind, was buried and rose again the third day. He came to reveal God, He died to redeem man, He rose the third day both literally and physically to make sure proof of man’s redemption. He has ascended to Heaven where He is now exalted at the right hand of God the Father. 
    Philippians 2:5-11; Matthew 1:23; Hebrews 4:15; John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15

  • Article IV Christ’s Return

    Christ’s return is both literal and imminent and shall be bodily, personal, visible, pre-millennial, and pre-tribulational. At His return, believers, both dead and alive, shall be changed and caught-up together to meet the Lord in the air. 
    John 14:1-3; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
