All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
II Timothy 3:16-17
I. The Bible clearly teaches the personal and literal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
II. The Old and New Testaments called the Bible are the inerrant, infallible, preserved Word of God. They are verbally and plenarily inspired of God.
III. The Bible teaches the sanctity of the Lord’s Day (Sunday), and that Christians are to refrain from work and worldly pleasures on this day.
IV. The Bible teaches that every Christian should be a soul winner.
V. The Bible teaches holy living. Christians should strive to love all men, but they should be clearly separated from worldliness in appearance, speech and walk of life.
VI. The Bible teaches that debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, and doctrinal disputes are wrong, because they detract from the glorification of the Lord Jesus Christ.
VII. The Bible teaches that there is only one God whose Divine essence (Trinity) encompasses the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
Dt. 6:4; Mt. 28:19; II Cor. 13:14; Col. 2:9; (The Father ) Matt. 6:26; (The Son) Jn. 20:28,29; (The Holy Ghost) Acts 5:3,4.
VIII. The Bible teaches that all men are lost, and depraved without God, and can only be saved through the Lord Jesus Christ.
IX. The Bible teaches that salvation, justification, sanctification and redemption are by The life, death, resurrection, ascension, and intercession of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.
X. The Bible teaches a literal Heaven for those who are saved, and a literal Hell for Those who are lost. Both are eternal.
XI. The Bible teaches three ordinances of the church.
1. Baptism by immersion to symbolize the newness of life in Jesus Christ.
Rom. 6:4; I Pet. 3:21.
2. Communion to symbolize the vicarious atonement, and to remind the Christian that Christ will return.
Mt. 26:26-29; I Cor. 11:22-26.
3. Feet washing to symbolize the service of the Christian life.
XII. The Bible, because of the finished work of Christ, and the insistence of grace, teaches the eternal security of the faithful; however, because grace is not coercive, and because man is a free moral agent, warns about the possibility of the child of God backsliding , apostatizing, and being finally lost.
