1. We believe that God eternally exists in three persons — the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit — having precisely the same nature and attributes.
  2. We believe God, by the word of His power, created from nothing the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. He further preserves and governs all His creatures and all their actions according to His most holy, wise, and powerful providence.
  3. We believe that man was created in the image of God, good and upright, but fell from his state of innocence by voluntary disobedience of God.
  4. We believe that salvation is entirely by the grace of God, apart from human works or merit, and that it is received through faith in Jesus Christ, who died for our sins.
  5. We believe that there is a personal devil who seeks to tempt and separate people from God.
  6. We believe the bodies of men, after death, return to dust and see corruption, but their souls, which neither die or sleep, having an immortal subsistence, immediately return to God who gave them.
  7. We believe that the Church is the body of Christ and that the people of God are called to community, worship, discipleship, mission, and education.
