  • The true humanity and deity of the Lord Jesus Christ
  • The atonement made on the cross by our Lord for the sin of the world
  • The person of the Holy Spirit as the one who sets apart, empowers, and imparts spiritual gifts to the church
  • The inspiration of the Bible and its authority in all matters of faith and practice
  • Salvation and membership in the church by faith in Christ alone
  • Membership of the church for the regenerate
  • The immersion of believers as the Scriptural form of baptism
