It is our belief that the following are the central truths of Holy Scripture,

which cannot be broken nor changed:

Deity and Sonship

1. That Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God (Deity) (Matthew 1:21);

2. That He was born of a virgin (Humanity) (Matthew 1:18-20);

4. That He was crucified and died an atoning death for mankind (I John 2:2);

on the third day (I Timothy 3:16; II Corinthians 4:14);

7. That He is coming again in power and glory as the Judge of the living

and the dead (Revelation 20:11-15).

The Short Version of the above:

1 Corinthians 15:3-7

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures;

5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. (KJV)
