The Holy Scriptures, as originally given by God, are divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and constitute the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: The Father, The Son (Jesus Christ), and The Holy Spirit.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh: we affirm His virgin birth, sinless humanity, divine miracles, vicarious and atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension, ongoing mediatorial work, and personal return in power and glory.
The salvation of lost and sinful humanity is possible only through the merits of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, received by faith apart from works, and is characterized by regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit enables and baptizes believers to live a holy life, and to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Church, known as the body of Christ, consists of all true believers. True believers are those who have been saved (as per statement about salvation).
Ultimately God will judge the living and the dead, those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. Those who are saved will be welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven, those who are lost will spend eternity separated from God in hell.
