The Bible contains the Old and New Testaments, and is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is alone the inerrant, infallible, inspired Word of God and is our source for all doctrine and authority.

THE ETERNAL GODHEAD
There is one God and He is eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They are equal in Deity, dignity and only differ in purpose and administration.
— Matthew 28:19, 1 John 5:7
He is the creator and sustainer of all things. He created us in His image for fellowship and through Christ we can have a relationship with Him.
— Genesis 1:1, 1 John 1:3
Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He is eternally God. He was with the Father and Holy Spirit from the beginning, and through Him all things were made. He left heaven and became human and was conceived of the Holy Spirit. Born of the virgin Mary, He lived a sinless life and offered himself as a perfect sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins. He is one Christ, with two natures – fully God and fully man in one person.
— Luke 1:31, John 1:1, 14, 18, Romans 3:24-26, 4:25
The Holy Spirit is God, was active in the Old Testament and given to the Church in fullness at Pentecost. He empowers the saints for service and witness.
— Genesis 1:2, Psalm 139:7, John 20:21-22, Acts 1:8
Salvation is a free gift to us and is not something that can be earned. It is by grace we are saved through faith in Christ alone. While we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him and confess Jesus Christ as their Lord.
— John 3:16, Rom. 5:8, Rom. 10:9, 10, Ephesians 2:8
