SCRIPTURE

That the Scriptures are true, authoritative and sufficient (Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 PeterĀ 1:20-21)

GOD

That there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-6; Isaiah 46:9-10; John 17:3; 1 Corinthians

8:4-6; 1 Timothy 2:5)

TRINITY

That the Father is God; the Son is God and the Holy Spirit is God; and that the Father is neither

the Son nor the Holy Spirit, the Son is neither the Father nor the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit

is neither the Father not the Son (Genesis 1:26; Psalm 45:6-7; Psalm 110:1; Matthew 3:13-17;

Matthew 28:17-20; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6)

MAN

That I am, along with all humanity (excluding Jesus Christ), by birth and action a sinner (Genesis

6:5; Psalm 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:8, 12-21; Romans 7:18; Ephesians

2:1-3).

SIN

That the deserved penalty for sin is death, both physical and spiritual (Genesis 2:15-17: Genesis

3:19: Romans 5:12; Romans 6:23; James 1:14-15).

JESUS

That Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully

human (Matthew 1:20; Luke 2:52; John 1:1-4, 14; Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 1:1-3).

ATONEMENT

That Jesus Christ died as my substitute to pay the penalty for my sin (John 1:29; John 10:1-18;

Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 1:4; 1 Peter 3:18)

RESURRECTION

That Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead (Matthew 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-53;

John 1:20-21, 25; 1 Corinthians 15:12-34).

ASCENSION

That Jesus Christ physically ascended into heaven and will one day physically return (John 14:3;

Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Hebrews 9:28; 1 John 3:2; Revelation 1:7).

COMING KINGDOM

In a future physical resurrection of the dead. Those who trust in Jesus Christ alone will be raised

to an eternal kingdom. Those who have not trusted in Jesus Christ will be raised to eternal punishment

(Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15).

SALVATION BY FAITH ALONE

That only by trusting in the person and work of Jesus Christ alone can I be reconciled to God

and experience true life and joy (John 3:18; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:21-26; 1 Timothy

2:5-6
