Bibliology

The Bible, in its entirety, is the infallible and inerrant word of God; written by human authors who were divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, all scripture carries the full weight of God's authority and is profitable for every area of life and godliness.

Theology

There is one God, who is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth; who exists as three distinct yet fully divine persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are all equal in power and glory.

Christology

There is one Christ, Jesus, who is completely God and completely man, having two natures in one person. As God of God, the Son of God, Jesus was incarnated as a human, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a perfect life, was crucified, dead, and buried, rose on the third day, ascended to heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father, and will come again in glory.
   

Pneumatology

The Holy Spirit a person, the third person of the Trinity, sent by the Father and the Son to regenerate and indwell the hearts of believers; received immediately at salvation, the Holy Spirit assures, guides, sanctifies, equips, and empowers the body Christ to glorify God and live victoriously. 

Cosmology

God, by the word of His power, created from nothing the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. He continues to preserve and govern all His creatures and all their actions according to His most holy, wise, and powerful providence.

Anthropology

All people are made in the image and likeness of God, thus worthy of dignity and honor. God made humanity with two distinct representatives: male and female, who are equal in value, yet different in function; who are intended to reflect God's character and exercise dominion over His creation.

Hamartiology

While the image of God in man is not destroyed, the image has been marred because of Adam, who at the time of the Fall was able to and not to sin. Since the Fall, all human beings have become sinners by nature and choice, alienated from God, guilty of His holy requirements, and incapable of amending this with their own efforts. Atonement must be made on our behalf. 

Soteriology

Sinners are redeemed through the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ on the cross. While we were sinners, at enmity with God, Jesus died for us and was raised for our justification, satisfying the wrath of God, making righteous those who place their faith in Him and securing the salvation of all believers.

Ecclesiology

50 days after the resurrection of Jesus, the Church was born, the body of Jesus Christ, who is its Head; called to live in the power of the Holy Spirit, under the regulation of the scriptures, preaching the gospel of Jesus, making disciples of all nations, and administering baptism and communion. God is building His church in Christ, by Christ, and for Christ.

Eschatology

Jesus will come back once visibly on the clouds, to gather His Church and glorify them. He will renew the earth and establish His kingdom, where He will reign as King forever. Our response to the gospel of Jesus in this life will determine where we spend eternity, in Heaven or Hell.
