 “For the Lord shall comfort Zion: He will comfort all of her waste places; and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be therein, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.” – Isaiah 51:3


All Scripture is given by inspiration of God by which we understand the whole Bible to be inspired in the sense that holy men of God were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture. Divine inspiration extends equally and fully to all parts of the original writings. The whole Bible in the original is, therefore, without error and, as such, is infallible, absolutely supreme and sufficient in authority in all matters of faith and practice. (2 Tim. 3:16,17; 2 Pet. 1:20,21; Psa. 119:160a; Matt. 5:17,18)

The Bible does not simply contain the Word of God, but is, in reality, the complete revelation and very Word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit. Christian believers today receive spiritual illumination to enable them to understand the Scriptures, but God does not grant new revelations that are contrary or additional to inspired biblical truth. (1 Cor. 2:12-14; Prov. 30:5,6)

THE GODHEAD The Godhead exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are one, having the same nature and attributes and are worthy of the same homage, confidence and obedience. (Matt. 3:16,17; 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14)

THE FATHER The Father exists eternally as the Creator of heaven and earth, the Giver of the Law, to whom all things will be subjected, so that He may be all in all. (Gen. 1:1; 1 Cor. 15:28)

THE SON The Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal and only begotten Son of the Father, is true God and true man. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and by His sinless life, miracles and teaching, gave full revelation of the Father. (John 1:1,14; 10:30; 17; Phil. 2:6,7; Heb. 1:8; Luke 1:26-35; John 12:49; Acts 2:22; 2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 7:26)

He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitution sacrifice. He rose from the dead. He is now at the right hand of the majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom in righteousness and peace. (Rom. 5:6,8; 1 Cor. 15:3; 1 Pet. 3:18; Matt. 28:6; 1 Cor. 15:4; Acts 1:9-11; 2:33; Heb. 8:1; Matt. 25:31)

HOLY SPIRIT God, the Holy Spirit performs actions and possesses the attributes of Deity. His personality is shown by the fact that He has personal characteristics and that individuals may relate to Him as a person. (Acts 5:3,4; John 16:13-14)

ANGELS CLASSIFICATION Angels were created as intelligent and powerful beings to do the will of God and worship Him. However, Satan, the originator of sin, fell through pride and was followed by those angels who rebelled against God. These fallen angels or demons are active in opposing the purposes of God. (Psa. 103:20; Rev. 5:11,12; Isa. 14:12-17; Ezek. 28:11-19; Eph. 6:11,12; 1 Tim. 4:1; Jude 6)

Those who remained faithful continue before the throne of God and serve as ministering spirits. (Heb. 1:14)

THE BELIEVER AND DEMONS Demons attempt to thwart God's purposes; however, in Christ, the believer may have complete liberty from the influence of demons. He cannot be possessed by them because his body is the temple of the Holy Spirit in which Christ dwells as Lord. (Heb. 2:14; 1 John 3:8; 4:1-4; Matt. 6:24; 1 Cor. 6:19,20)

MAN was originally created in the image and likeness of God. He fell through sin and, as a consequence, incurred both spiritual and physical death. Spiritual death and the depravity of human nature have been transmitted to the entire human race with the exception of the Man Christ Jesus. Man can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Gen. 1:26, 2:7; Rom. 5:12; James 1:14,15; Jer. 17:9; Rom. 3:10-19,23; Heb. 7:26; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Tim. 2:5,6)

SALVATION ATONEMENT OF CHRIST Salvation has been provided for all men through the sacrifice of Christ upon the cross. It is the only perfect redemption and substitution atonement for all the sins of the world, both original and actual. His atoning work has been proven by His resurrection from the dead. Those who repent and believe in Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and receive eternal life. Furthermore, in the atonement, divine healing was provided for all believers. (Isa. 53:3-6; John 12:32,33; 1 Pet. 2:24; Acts 2:36; Rom. 4:25; 1 Cor. 15:14,17,20; Heb. 10:12; 1 John 2:2; Acts 20:21; 1 Pet. 1:23,25; Isa. 53:4,5; Matt. 8:16b, 17)

REPENTANCE AND FAITH Man can be born again only through faith in Christ. Repentance, a vital part of believing, is a complete change of mind wrought by the Holy Spirit, turning a person to God from sin. (Isa. 55:7; Acts. 17:30; Gal. 3:22,26; Eph. 2:8; 1 John 5:10-13) REGENERATION Regeneration is a creative work of the Holy Spirit by which man is born again and receives spiritual life. (John 3:3b,5b,7; 1 Cor. 5:17,18a; 1 Pet. 1:23)

JUSTIFICATION is a judicial act of God by which the sinner is declared righteous solely on the basis of his acceptance of Christ as Saviour. (Rom. 3:24; 4:3-5; 5:1-2)
