The Bible. The scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by
the inspiration of God, and are our infallible rule of faith and practice.
God. There is one living and true God, revealed in nature as the Creator,
Preserver, and Righteous Governor of the universe; and in the Scriptures
as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; yet as one God, infinitely wise and good,
who all intelligent creatures are supremely to love, adore, and obey.
Christ. Christ is God manifest in the flesh; in His divine nature truly
God, in His human nature truly man. The mediator between God and man,
once crucified, He is now risen and glorified and is our ever present
The Holy Spirit. The Scriptures assign to the Holy Spirit all the attributes
The Government of God. God exercises a wise and benevolent providence
over all beings and all things by maintaining the constitution and laws
He also performs special acts, not otherwise provided for, as the highest
welfare of men requires.
The Sinfulness of Man. Man was created innocent, by disobedience fell
into a state of sin and condemnation. His posterity, therefore, inherit
nature of such tendencies that all who come to years of accountability,
sin and become guilty before God.
The Work of Christ. The Son of God by His incarnation, life, sufferings,
death, and resurrection effected for all, a redemption from sin that
is full and free, and is the ground of salvation by faith.
The Terms of Salvation. The conditions of salvation are:
Repentance toward God - or sincere sorrow for sin and hearty renunciation
of it. Faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ - or the unreserved committal
of one's self to Christ as Savior and Lord with purpose to love and obey
Him in all things. In the exercise of saving faith, the soul is renewed
by the Holy Spirit, freed from the dominion of sin, and becomes a child
of God unto continued faith and obedience.
Election. God determined from the beginning to save all who should comply
with the conditions of salvation. Hence, by faith in Christ, men become
Freedom of the Will. The human will is free and self-controlled, having
power to yield to the influence of the truth and the Spirit, or to resist
them and perish.
Salvation Free. God desires the salvation of all, the Gospel invites
all, the Holy Spirit strives with all, and whosoever will may come and
of the water of life freely.
Perseverance. All true believers in Christ have promise of eternal salvation
as demonstrated by their continuance through grace in faith and holiness.
Gospel Ordinances. Baptism, or the immersion of believers in water, and
the Lord's Supper, are ordinances to be perpetuated under the Gospel.
Feet washing, is an observance to teach humility and mutual service.
Tithing. God commanded tithes and offerings in the Old Testament; Jesus
Christ endorsed it in the Gospel (Matt. 23:23), and the apostle Paul
the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as
God hath prospered him." (I Cor. 16:2a)
The Christian Sabbath. The divine law requires that one day in seven
be set apart from secular employments and amusements, for rest, worship,
works, and activities, and for personal communion with God.
Resurrection, Judgment, and Final Retribution. The Scriptures teach the
resurrection of all men at the last day. They that have done good will
come forth to the resurrection of life and they that have done evil unto
the resurrection of damnation; then the wicked will "go away into
eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
