The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God – fully trustworthy for faith and conduct. 2 Timothy 3:16; Deuteronomy 4:2; 2 Peter 1:21.
The Godhead eternally exists in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are one God, having the same nature, attributes and perfection. Romans 1:20; Matthew 28:19; Deuteronomy 4:35; John 17:5.
God The Father
He is the creator and sustainer of the universe and everything in it. He has no beginning and no end. He has the power and absolute authority to do anything except He cannot sin. He is all knowing and present in all places at all times. God the Father is the same yesterday, today and forever. Time, space, distance and circumstances do not confine Him. He is perfect, holy, wise, merciful, loving, truthful and just. (Romans 11:33-34); Psalm 139; Psalm 147; Genesis 1:1; Revelation 22:13; Isaiah 45:5
The Holy Spirit
The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.

In the necessity for salvation of repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ by which the sinner is pardoned and accepted as righteous in God’s sight. This justification is given by the grace of God because of the atoning work of Christ, is received by faith alone and is evidenced by the Fruit of the Spirit and a life set-apart for Christ.
