The Scriptures…

…are the inerrant Word of God:

  • “All Scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Tim. 3:16-17

All people…

…are sinners:

  • “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

The Church…

…is ‘universal’ (regardless of race):

  • “For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body–whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free–and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.” 1 Cor. 12:13

Two Ordinances…

…Baptism:

  • “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Matt. 28:19

…The Lord’s Supper:

  • “And He took bread, gave thanks and broke [it], and gave [it] to them, saying, ‘This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.'” Luke 22:19

In the Return …

…in Jesus’ physical return:

  • “looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ… Titus 2:13 …so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.” Hebrews 9:28

…in the establishment of His Kingdom:

  • “Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, ‘The kingdoms of this world have become [the] [kingdoms] of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!'” Rev. 11:15
