The Bible is the authoritative word of God.
There is one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is fully God. His conception was of the Holy Spirit, and he was born of the virgin Mary, lived a holy life without sin, and he died upon the Cross as the substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of the world and arose from the dead and ascended into heaven from where he will return with power and glory.
All are sinners and forgiveness of sins and justification are through repentance of sins and faith in Jesus Christ.
God calls us to live holy lives.
Jesus Christ will return
The Holy Spirit dwells in all God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.
There will be a bodily resurrection with eternal life for the righteous - those who have accepted Christ, and eternal separation from God for the unrighteous.
