We believe the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, to be the Word of God, and its doctrine of salvation to be the perfect and only true doctrine of salvation.
We believe in one living and true God, in whom eternally there are three distinct persons—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit—who are the same in being and equal in power and glory, and that Jesus Christ is God the Son, come in the flesh.
We confess that because of our sinfulness we must abhor and humble ourselves before God, repent of sin, and trust for salvation not in ourselves but in Jesus Christ alone.
We acknowledge Jesus Christ as our sovereign Lord and in reliance on the grace of God, desire to serve him with all that is in us, to forsake the world, to resist the devil, to put to death sinful deeds and desires, and to lead a godly life.
We seek to participate faithfully in worship and service, to submit in the Lord to its government.
