TENETS OF FAITH AND DOCTRINE
The corporation accepts the Scriptures as the revealed Will of God, the all sufficient rule of faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity, adopts these Statements of Fundamental Truths and Doctrine.
Section 1. The Scriptures Inspired.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (2 Tim. 3:15‑17; 1 Peter 1:23‑25; Heb. 4:12).
Section 2. The One True Godhead.
The triune Godhead is comprised of three (3) separate and distinct personalities, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are eternally self‑existent, self‑revealed and function as one entity. Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, is the second member of the Godhead, co‑equal and co‑eternal with The Father and The Holy Spirit.
Section 3. Man, His Fall and Redemption.
Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make man in Our image, after Our likeness”. But, man, by voluntary transgression, fell and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Genesis 1:26‑31, 3:1‑7; Romans 5:12‑21).
Section 4. The Salvation of Man.
Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross Jesus Christ became sin providing salvation for all mankind (Psalm 103:3; 2 Cor.5:21). “being justified freely by His Grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:24). “For by grace we are saved through faith” (Ephesians 2:8). “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart‑‑that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation” (Romans 10:8‑10).
