We believe the Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God, a divine, supernatural revelation. We believe in the plenary, verbal inspiration of the original writings of the Scriptures, and that as thus given they were wholly without error of any kind. We believe in one Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (I Peter 1:2; Matthew 28:19). We believe that they are co-equal in power and glory, identical in their essential natures, attributes, and perfections and that they are co-eternal (Genesis 1:2; John 17:5). In His essential na­ ture, God is spirit as opposed to material (John 4:24); as to His essen­ tial attribute God is absolutely holy, embracing the sum of all moral perfections (I Peter 1:16); as to His essential character, God is love (I John 4:16; John 3:16). We believe that Jesus Christ "being the eternal Son of God, became man" (Hebrews 2:16; John 1:14; Luke 1:35), and that He continueth to be the God-Man, in two distinct natures, and one person forever (John 1:14; Romans 9:5; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 13:8). We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, thus being True God and True Man. We believe that He died upon the cross a vicarious substitutionary death, thereby making atonement for the sin of the world (John 1:29). We believe that He is the only Redeemer (Acts 4:12), and that His atone­ ment is sufficient for the sins of all the world (Hebrews 7:25; I John 2:2), and efficient for all who believe (John 3:16, 36; Isaiah 45:22). We believe that He bodily arose from the dead, that He ascended into Heaven; that there in His state of glorification He is now the inter­ ceding High Priest, Intercessor, and Advocate for all believers (I Corin­ thians 15:20; Luke 24; Acts 1:3; Hebrews 7:25; 4:15; I John 2:1). 39
