…the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the final authority for all Christian teaching and living.
…in God the Father, the Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth and the Provider of every good and perfect gift for our lives.
…in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, who lived a perfect life on this earth for us and died as mankind’s substitute on the cross to pay for our sinfulness.
…that Jesus especially showed Himself to be true God by rising from the dead on Easter. By His glorious resurrection victory, the forgiveness of sins is secured for all, and life and salvation are accomplished.
…that faith is trusting Jesus to be God’s Son and personal Savior; this alone redeems and saves a person for heaven.
…in the Holy Spirit, who brings people to faith and empowers them to love God and others through the ministry of the Gospel.
…that Baptism and Holy Communion are sacraments, whereby God’s Holy Spirit imparts personally to us His saving grace and power to live confidently in the possession of Christ’s forgiveness of sins, life, and eternal salvation.
…that Jesus will come at the end of time to be the righteous Judge of all. When He comes, Jesus will raise all the dead from their graves and give everlasting life to all who believe in Him.
