One God

Holy, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable; subsisting in an eternal Trinity consisting of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit


One Word

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments; given by the plenary and verbal inspiration of God; and, the only infallible rule of faith, doctrine, and practice


One Condemnation

There being no difference, as all have sinned and are born in sin


One Savior

The Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh; we firmly attest to His essential deity and virgin birth, His sinless life, His vicarious death, His physical and bodily resurrection from the grave, and His ascension into heaven from where He will return personally to set up an earthly kingdom


One Atonement for Sin

Made only by Jesus Christ in a substitutionary and sacrificial death on the cross; sufficient for all, available to all, and offered to all; we believe that all must be born again or be forever lost and separated from God


One Spirit

The Holy Ghost; through whose sovereign agency in regeneration, the soul, dead in sin, is made alive in Christ; and through whose sovereign agency in sanctification, the soul is changed more and more into the divine image from glory to glory


One Life

Which is hid with Christ in God, the eternal life; begun when a sinner believes and receives Him, and continues thereafter by the effectual and sovereign grace of God


One Church

Which is Christ's body; all the members of which God has from the beginning chosen to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the Truth; admission is according to the "free will" of man and the grace of God through Jesus Christ


Two Destinies

Heaven and the Lake of Fire; heaven is a place of eternal life with Christ; the Lake of Fire is a place of eternal death and separation from God


One Satan

Who is tempter and accuser; who exists in personality and reality


One Commission

The great evangelistic and missionary mandate given by Jesus Christ to the disciples and the continuing church: that the individual should go if led of God and send others if not; that each person in each generation would hear the Gospel


One Hope

Described as "the blessed hope," which is the personal return of our Lord and Savior
