I believe in the one true God existing in three Persons,
the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit;
I believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and truly man,
through belief in Him, we can have salvation;
Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh
through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit
and His virgin birth. Hence, He is perfect Deity and
true humanity united in one person forever;
He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for
the sins of men by dying on the cross as their substitute,
thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation
for all who trust in Him alone;
He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified,
in which He lived and died. He ascended bodily into
heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father,
where He, the only mediator between God and man, continually
makes intercession for His own.
Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body,
which is composed of all men, living and dead, who have
been joined to Him through saving faith.
I believe in the Old and New Testaments as the inspired
Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of my
proclamation, faith, and life;
I believe that the Holy Spirit has come into the world
to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work
of Christ to men. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ,
imparts new life to them, continually indwells them from
the moment of spiritual birth and seals them until the day
of redemption. His fullness, power and control are appropriated
in the believer's life by faith.
I believe that man was originally created in the image
of God. He disobeyed God so he was alienated from his Creator.
That fall brought all mankind under divine condemnation;
Man's nature is corrupted, and he is thus totally
unable to please God. Every man is in need of regeneration
and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
The salvation of man is wholly a work of God's free
grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human
works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes
His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ
alone for their salvation, and thereby justified them
in His sight.
It is the privilege of all who are born again of
the Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the
very moment in which they trust Christ as their Savior.
This assurance is not based upon any kind of human merit,
but is produced by the witness of the Holy Spirit, who
confirms in the believer the testimony of God in His
I believe that Jesus Christ will come again to the earth
- personally, visibly and bodily - to consummate history
and the eternal plan of God.
The Lord Jesus Christ commanded all believers to proclaim
the Gospel throughout the world and to disciple men of every
nation. The fulfillment of that Great Commission requires
that all worldly and personal ambitions be subordinated
to a total commitment to "Him who loved us and gave
Himself for us."
The chief reason why man was created is to glorify God!
He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)
