dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come, and put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him to be Head over all things to the Church. The Lord Jesus, before His incarnation, existed in the form of God and of His own choice laid aside His divine glory and took upon Himself the form of a servant and was made in the likeness of men. In His pre-existent state, He was with God and was God. He is a divine per son possessed of all the attributes of Deity, and should be worshiped as God by angels and man. "In Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodil/' All the words that He spoke during His earthly life were the words of God. There is absolutely no error of any kind in them, and by the words of Jesus Christ the words of al l other teach ers must be tested.
The Lord Jesus became in every respect a real man, possessed of all the essential characteristics of human nature.
By His death on the cross, the Lord Jesus made a perfect atonement for sin, by which the wrath of God against sinners is appeased and a ground furnished upon which God can deal in mercy with sinners. He redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse in our place. He who Himself was absolutely without sin was made to be sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. The Lord Jesus is coming aga in to his earth, personally, bodily, and visibly The return of our Lord is the blessed hope of the believe r, and in it God's purposes of grace toward mankind will find thei r consummation.

Doctrinal Statement Inasmuch as the University is interdenominational and yet theologi cally conservative, the Articles of Incorporation contain a doctrinal statement which is given below: The Bible, consist ing of all the books of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God, a supernatural ly given revelation from God Himself, concerning Himself, His being, nature, characte r, will and purposes; and concerning man, his nature, need and duty and des tiny. The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are w ithout error or misstatement in their moral and spiritual teaching and record of historical facts. They are without error or defect of any kind .
The Holy Spirit is a person, and is possessed of all the distinctively divine attributes. He is God .
Man was created in the image of God, after His likeness, but the whole human race fell in the fall of the first Adam. All men, until they accept the Lord Jesus as their personal Savior, are lost, darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, hardened in heart, mora lly and spiritually dead through their trespasses and sins. They cannot see, nor enter the Kingdom of God until they are born again of the Holy Spirit. Men are justified on the simp le and single ground of the shed blood of Christ and upon the simple and single condition of faith in Him who shed the blood, and are born again by the quickening, renew ing, cleansing work of the Holy Spirit, through the instrumentality of the Word of God. All those who receive Jesus Christ as their Savior and their Lord, and who confess Him as such before their fellow men, become children of God and receive eternal life. They become heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus Christ. At death their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness, and at the Second Coming of Christ their bodies shall be raised and transformed into the likeness of the body of His glory.
There is one God, eternally existing and manifesting Himself to us in three Persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Our Lord Jesus was supernatu rall y conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin - Mary, a lineal descendant of David . He lived and taught and w rought mighty works and wonders and signs exactly as is recorded in the four Gospels. He was put to death by crucifixion under Pontius Pilate. God raised from the dead the body that had been nailed to the cross.The Lord Jesus after His cru cifixion showed Hi mself to be alive to His d isc iples, appearing unto them by the space of 40 days. After this, the Lord Jesus ascended into heaven, and t he Father ca used Him to sit at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above al l rule and authority and power and
