The inspiration, inerrancy and infallibility of God’s word, the Bible, as originally given. The Holy Scripture is both vital and clear, and all Christians must submit to its supreme authority and sufficiency, both individually and corporately, in every matter of belief and conduct.
The existence of one eternal and immutable God, the Holy Trinity, Creator and Lord of the universe who, in the unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – three Persons who are the same in substance, and equal in power and glory – governs all things according to His will, and is accomplishing His purposes in the world and in the church.
The Lord Jesus Christ
The essential, absolute and eternal deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; His eternal pre-existence and glory as the Son of God; His conception by Mary of the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His real but sinless humanity; His voluntary humiliation and obedience, culminating in His death as a sacrifice for sin; His bodily resurrection from the dead on the third day; His ascension into heaven; His continuing ministry as Prophet, Priest and King; and His coming again in power and glory.
The Human Race
The inherent value of all human beings, made by God in His own image, and their sinfulness and guilt since the fall of Adam. This has rendered them subject to God’s wrath and condemnation, and has resulted in their alienation from Him, from one another and from His creation.
Salvation from the guilt, penalty and all consequences of sin solely through the work of Jesus Christ – His perfect obedience, penal substitutionary death, bodily resurrection and exaltation as Lord. He alone is truly God and truly man, and therefore the only mediator between God and humanity, uniquely able to save completely those who come to God through Him. There is salvation through no other person, creed, process or power.
The justification of sinners entirely through the imputation of Christ’s righteousness to them and of the guilt and penalty of their sin to Him. It is appropriated by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
