I. That the book currently known as the Bible, consisting of the Scriptures of Moses, the prophets, and the apostles, is the only source of knowledge concerning God and His purposes at present extant or available in the earth, and that the same were wholly given by inspiration of God in the writers, and are consequently without error in all parts of them, except such as may be due to errors of transcription or translation.

2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Cor. 2:13; Heb. 1:1; 2 Pet. 1:21; 1 Cor. 14:37; Neh. 9:30; John 10:35.


II. That the only true God is He Who was revealed to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, by angelic visitation and vision, and to Moses at the flaming bush (unconsumed) and at Sinai, and Who manifested Himself in the Lord Jesus Christ, as the supreme self-existent Deity, the ONE FATHER, dwelling in unapproachable light, yet everywhere present by His Spirit, which is a unity with His person in heaven. He hath, out of His own underived energy, created heaven and earth, and all that in them is.

Isa. 40:24-25; 43:10-12; 44:6-8; 45:5; 46:9-10; Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29; 1 Cor. 8:4-6; Eph. 4:6; 1 Tim. 2:5; Neh. 9:6; Job 26:13; Psa. 124:8; 146:6; 148:5; Isa. 40:25-26; Jer. 10:12-13; 27:5; 32:17-19; 51:15; Acts 14:15; 17:24; 1 Chron. 29:11-12; Psa. 62:11; 145:3; Isa. 26:4; 40:26; Job 9:4; 36:5; Psa. 92:5; 104:24; 147:4-5; Isa. 28:29; Rom. 16:27; 1 Tim. 1:17; 2 Chron. 16:9; Job 28:24; 34:21; Psa. 33:13-14; 44:21; 94:9; 139:7-12; Prov. 15:3; Jer. 23:24; 32:19; Amos 9:2-3; Acts 17:27-28; Psa. 123:1; Matt. 6:9; 1 Tim. 6:15-16; 1:17.

III. That Jesus of Nazareth was the Son of God, begotten of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit, without the intervention of man, and afterwards anointed with the same Spirit, without measure, at his baptism.

Matt. 1 :23; 1 Tim. 3: 16; Acts 2:22-24, 36; Matt. 1:18-25; Lk. 1:26-35; Gal. 4:4; Isa. 7:14; Matt. 3:16-17; Isa. 11:2; 42:1; 61:1; John 3:34; 7:16; 8:26-28; 14:10-24.

IV. That the appearance of Jesus of Nazareth on the earth was necessitated by the position and state into which the human race had been brought by the circumstances connected with the first man.

1 Cor. 15:21-22; Rom. 5:12-19; Gen. 3:19; 2 Cor. 5:19-21.

V. That the first man was Adam, whom God created out of the dust of the ground as a living soul, or natural body of life, "very good" in kind and condition, and placed him under a law through which the continuance of life was contingent on obedience.

Gen. 2:7; 18:27; Job 4:19; 33:6; 1 Cor. 15:46-49; Gen. 2:17.

VI. That Adam broke this law, and was adjudged unworthy of immortality, and sentenced to return to the ground from whence he was taken-a sentence which defiled and became a physical law of his being, and was transmitted to all his posterity.

Gen. 3:15-19, 22-23; 2 Cor. 1:9; Rom. 7:24; 2 Cor. 5:2-4; Rom. 7:18-23; Gal. 5:16-17; Rom. 6:12; 7:21; John 3:6; Rom. 5:12; 1 Cor. 15:22; Psa. 51:5; Job 14:4.

VII. That God, by His grace, conceived a plan of restoration which, without setting aside His just and necessary law of sin and death, should ultimately rescue the race from destruction.

Rev. 21:4; John 3:16; 2 Tim. 1:10; 1 John 2:25; 2 Tim. 1:1; Titus 1:2; Rom. 3:26; John 1:29.

VIII. That He inaugurated this plan by making promises to Adam, Abraham and David, and afterwards elaborated it in greater detail through the prophets.

Gen. 3:15; 22:18; Psa. 89:34-37; Hos. 13:14; Isa. 25:7-9; 51:1-8; Jer. 23:5.

IX. That these promises had reference to Jesus Christ, who was to be raised up in the condemned line of Abraham and David, and who, though wearing their condemned nature, was to obtain a title to resurrection by perfect obedience, and, by dying, abrogate the law of condemnation for himself, and all who should believe and obey him.

1 Cor. 15:45; Heb. 2:14-16; Rom. 1:3; Heb. 5:8-9; 1:9; Rom. 5:19-21; Gal. 4:4-5; Rom. 8:3-4; Heb. 2:15; 9:26; Gal. 1:4; Heb. 7:27; 5:3-7; 2:17; Rom. 6:10; 6:9; Acts 13:34-37; Rev. 1:18; John 5:21-22, 26-27; 14:3; Rev. 2:7; 3:21; Matt. 25:21; Heb. 5:9; Acts 13:38-39; Rom. 3:22; (Psa. 2:6-9; Dan. 7:13-14; Rev. 11:15; Jer. 23:5; Zech. 14:9; Eph. 1:9-10) Scriptures in parentheses should be considered together

X. That it was this mission that necessitated the miraculous begettal of Christ of a human mother, enabling him to bear our condemnation, and, at the same time, to be a sinless bearer thereof, and, therefore, one who could rise after suffering the death required by the righteousness of God.

Matt. 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-35; Isa. 7:14; Rom. 1:3; 8:3; Gal. 4:4; 2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 2:14-17; 4:15.

XI. That being so begotten of God, and inhabited and used by God through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, Jesus was Emmanuel, God with us, God manifested in the flesh-yet was, during his natural life, of like nature with mortal man, being made of a woman of the house and lineage of David, and therefore a sufferer, in the days of his flesh, from all the effects that came by Adam's transgression including the death that passed upon all man, which he shared by partaking of their physical nature.

Matt. 1:23; 1 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 2:14; Gal. 4:4; Heb. 2:17.

XII. That the message he delivered from God to his kinsmen, the Jews, was a call to repentance from every evil work, the assertion of his divine sonship and Jewish kingship; and the proclamation of the glad tidings that God would restore their kingdom through him, and accomplish all things written in the prophets.

Mark l:l5; Matt. 4:17; 5:20-48; John 10:36; 9:35; 11:27; 19:21; 1:49; Matt. 27:11-43; John 10:24-25; Matt. 19:28; 21:42-43; 23:38-39; Luke 4:43; 13:27-30; 22:28-30; Matt. 5:17; Luke 24:44.

XIII. That for delivering this message, he was put to death by the Jews and Romans who were, however, but instruments in the hands of God, for the doing of that which He had determined before to be done-namely, the condemnation of sin in the flesh, through the offering of the body of Jesus once for all, as a propitiation to declare the righteousness of God, as a basis for the remission of sins. All who approach God through this crucified, but risen, representative of Adam's disobedient race, are forgiven.

Luke 19:47; John 11:45-53; Acts 10:38-39; 13:26-29; 4:27-28; Rom. 8:3; Heb. 10:10; Rom. 3:25; Acts 13:38; 1 John 1:7; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Pet. 3:18; 2:24; Heb. 9:14; 7:27; 9:26-28; Gal. 1:4; Gal. 3:21-22; Gal. 2:21; 4:4-5; Heb. 9:15; Luke 22:20; 24:26, 46-47; Matt. 26:28.

XIV. That on the third day, God raised him from the dead, and exalted him to the heavens as priestly mediator between God and man, in the process of gathering from among them an elect people who should be saved by their belief and made heirs to the kingdom by their obedience to the Truth.

1 Cor. 15:4; Acts 10:40; 13:30-37; 2:24-27; 4:27-33; 1 Tim 2:5; Rom 8:33-34, Rom 11:7

XV. That he is a priest over his own house only, and does not intercede for the world, or for professors who are abandoned to disobedience. That he makes intercession for his erring brethren.

Luke 24:51; Eph. 1:20; Acts 5:31; 1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 8: 1; Acts 15:14; 13:39; Heb. 4:14-l5; John 17:9; Heb 10:26; 1 John 2:1; Prov 28:13; Heb 7:25; Rom 8:34; Rom 8:27.

XVI. That he sent forth apostles to proclaim salvation through him, as the only Name given under heaven whereby men may be saved.

Acts 1:8; Matt. 28:19-20; Luke 24:46-48; Acts 26:16-18; 4:12.

XVII. That the way to obtain this salvation is to believe the Gospel they preached, and to take on the Name and service of Christ, and continuing patiently in the observance of all things he has commanded, none being recognized as his friends except those who do what he has commanded.

Acts 13:48; 16:31; Rom. 1:16; Acts 2:38, 41; 10:47-48; 8:12; Gal. 3:27-29; Rom. 6:3-5; 2:7; Matt. 28:20; John 15:14.

XVIII. That the Gospel consists of "The things concerning the Kingdom of God and the Name of Jesus Christ."

Acts 8:12; 19:8, 10; 28:30-31, Mark 1:14; Luke 8:1; Acts 20:25; 1 Cor 15:1-8.

XIX. That God will set up a Kingdom in the earth, which will overthrow all others, and change them into "the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ."

Dan. 2:44; 7:13-14; Rev. 11:15; Isa. 32:1, 16; 2:3-4; 11:9-10.

XX. That for this purpose God will send Jesus Christ personally to the earth at the close of the times of the Gentiles.

Acts 3:19-21; Psa. 102:16, 21; 2 Tim. 4:1, Acts 1:9-11; Dan. 7:13, Luke 21:24-27; Rom. 11:25-26.

XXI. That the Kingdom which he will establish will be the Kingdom of Israel restored, in the territory it formerly occupied, namely, the land bequeathed for an everlasting possession to Abraham and his Seed (the Christ) by covenant.

Mic. 4:6-8; Amos 9:11, 15; Eze. 37:21-22; Jer. 23:3, 8; Gen. 13:14-17; Heb. 11:8-9; Gal. 3:16; Lev. 26:42; ; Mic. 7:20

XXII. That the work of the present Gospel Age is to call out and train the 'firstfuits' of mankind; those faithful ones who are to obtain the Kingdom and rule with Christ upon his second advent, and that such is the 'prize' and 'high calling' which the Christian is to strive to obtain.

Eph 4:11-13; Rev 1:6; Rev 5:9-10; 1 Cor 3:16-17; Eph 2:20-22; Eph 4:16; 1 Cor 9:24-25; Phil 3:14; Col 1:12-13; Col 3:23-24; Eph 1:10-12; 2 Peter 1:4; Matt 24:45-47; Luke 12:42-43; Gal 6:10; 1 Pet 2:9; Rom 8:22-23; Rom 8:20-21; Rom 16:5; 1 Cor 16:15; James 1:18; Rev 14:4.

XXIII. That only those who are watching, through patient endurance, awaiting the return of their savior rise in the first resurrection, obtaining the right to rule with Jesus.

Gal 5:19-21; 2 Tim 2:11-12; Rev 2:26; Heb 3:5-6; Rom 8:16-17; Rom 11:22; Gal 6:8-9; Eph 5:5; Rev 3:5; Rev 3:21; Luke 22:28-30; Matt 19:28; Phil 3:10-12.

XXIV. That these faithful ones will arise in the first resurrection immortal, in the likeness of their risen Lord and savior.

1 John 3:2; Luke 20:35-36; Luke 14:14; Rev 2:11; Rev 20:6; 1 Cor 15:53-54.

XXV. That following the first resurrection there will be a 1000 year reign of Jesus with His faithful. This period of time and the following ages are designated as the great 'Day of Judgment', and the 'Times of the Restitution of All Things', in which all the dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Those who have died in ignorance will be given the opportunity to come to Christ and obtain salvation. Judgment is made according to one's works, their submission to Christ, his rulership, and to the established earthly government with Israel at its head. The truth of the Gospel will be testified to all who have neither heard nor understood. The wicked one who rises to judgment failing to make restitution for sin and come to repentance will suffer punishment in the second death. This 1000 year day of judgment and the ages which follow  restore the earth to the condition which was lost in Eden, and establish righteousness and human perfection which Adam lost for his unborn posterity; the final outcome being the ultimate reconciliation of all creation to its Creator and the final destruction of the sinful flesh, after which death is abolished.

John 5:22-23; John 5:26-27; Matt 19:28; Luke 22:28-30; Rev 20:1-4; 1 Cor 6:2; Ps 149:5-9; Obad 1:21; Dan 7:22; Dan 7:26-27; Dan 7:9-10; Rev 20:12a; John 5:28-29; Dan 12:2; Acts 24:15; 1 Cor 15:22; 2 Tim 4:1; Rev 11:17-18; Acts 17:31; 1Tim 2:4-6; Isa 26:19; Matt 12:41-42; Ezek 37:12-14; Ezek 16:53-55; Matt 10:14-15; Mark 6:11; Ps 50:3-5; Ps 67:4; Ps 96:1-13; Isa 11:4; Luke 12:47-48; Matt 11:21-24; Matt 12:36; Luke 10:13-15; 2 Peter 2:9; 2 Peter 3:7; Isa 26:8-11; 1 Tim 2:5-6; Acts 3:19-21; Matt 5:21-22; Matt 12:18-21; Luke 11:31-32; Acts 24:24-25; Rom 2:4-5; 1 Tim 5:24; Heb 9:27; Rom 11:22-27; Mal 3:2-4; Rom 11:14-15; James 2:13; Matt 12:31-32; Jude 1:14-15; Ps 1:5-6; Ps 9:7-9; Ps 72:1-20; Ps 76:8-9; Ps 146:7-9; Isa 35:8-10; Isa 66:19; Isa 65:20; Isa 29:18-20; Isa 35:1-7; Isa 40:1-5; Zech 14:17-19; Mic 4:1-3; Isa 60:1-3; Isa 66:10-14; Matt 25:31-46; Rev 20:11-13; Isa 66:22-25;1 Cor 15:25-26; Rev 20:14-15; Ezek 18:19-30.
