The Scriptures Inspired

  • 2 Timothy 315-17, 1 Thessalonians 213, 2 Peter
    121

The Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and
without error in the original manuscripts,
written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit,
and that it has supreme authority in all matters
of faith and conduct.

1416-17, Luke 135, 1 Corinthians 124, Matthew

There is one living and true God, eternally
existing in three persons that these are equal
in every divine perfection and that they execute
distinct but harmonious offices in the work of
creation, providence, and redemption.
39
God the Father
Class 101
God the Father, an infinite, personal, spirit
perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We
believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in
the affairs of men that He hears and answers
prayers and that He saves from sin and death all
who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
40
Class 101
The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
Matthew 123, Hebrews 726, 1 Corinthians 153,
Acts 19
Jesus Christ, Gods only begotten Son, conceived
by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin
birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We
believe in His substitutionary atoning death,
bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven,
perpetual intercession for His people, and
personal visible return to earth.

The Holy Spirit
Class 101
The Holy Spirit came forth from the Father
and Son to convict the world of sin,
unrighteousness, And judgment, and to regenerate,
sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus

every believer in Christ, and that He is and
abiding helper, teacher, and guide.
