but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up unto eternal life.

John 4:14)






There is one God, 1 who is infinitely perfect, 2 who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3 (1Deuteronomy 6: 4; 2Matthew 5:48; 3Matthew 28:19)

Jesus Christ is true God and true man.4 He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.5 He died on the cross, the righteous for the unrighteous, 6 as a substitutionary sacrifice, 7 and all who believe in him are justified on the basis of his shed blood.8 He rose from the dead according to the Scriptures.9 He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest.10 He will come again to establish his kingdom of righteousness and peace 11: 6), and the Bible says, "I am the Lord, and I am the Lord." (4 Phil. 2: 6-11; 5 Luke 1: 34-38; 61 Peter 3:18; 7Hebrews 2: 9; 8Romans 5: 9;

The Holy Spirit is a divine person, 12 sent to dwell, to guide, to teach, to empower the believer, 13 and to convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.14 (12Juan 14: 15-18; 13John 16:13 , Acts 1: 8; 14 John 16: 7-11)

The Old and New Testaments, without error in their original form, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and unique rule of Christian faith and practice.15 (152 Peter 1: 20-21 and 2 Timothy 3: 15-16)

Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God; 16 he fell for disobedience, and so incurred both spiritual and physical death. All men are born with a sinful nature, 17 they are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only by the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.18 The portion of the unrepentant and unbelieving will be existence forever in conscious torment, 19 and that of the believer will be eternal joy and blessing.20 (16Genesis 1:27; 17Romanians 3:23; 181 Corinthians 15: 20-23; 19Apocalypse 21: 8; 20Apocalypse 21:14)

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become children of God.21 (21Tit 3: 4-7)

It is God's will for every believer to be filled with the Holy Spirit and wholly sanctified, 22 to be separated from sin and the world and completely dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for the holy life and effective service.23 This is both a crisis and a progressive experience realized in the life of the believer subsequent to

the conversion.24 (22 Thessalonians 5:23; 23 Acts 1: 8; 24 Romans 6: 1-14)

Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body.25 Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in Scripture and are privileges for the Church in the present age.26 (25Matthew 8:16 -17; 26; James 5: 13-16)

The church consists of all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed by His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, 27 who has been commissioned by him to go to the whole world as a witness, to preach the gospel to all nations.

The local church is a body of believers in Christ who gather for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, companionship, the proclamation of the gospel, and the observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Holy Supper.29 (27Ephesians 1: 22-23; 28Matthew 28: 19-20; 29 Acts 2: 41-47)

There will be a bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; for them a resurrection of life, 30 and for these, a resurrection for judgment.31 (301 Corinthians 15: 20-23; 31 John 5: 28-29)

The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent32 and will be personal, visible, and premillennial.33 This is the believer's blessed hope and it is a vital truth that drives him to a holy life and faithful service. 34 (32Hebrews 10:37; 33 Luke 21:27; 34Tit 2: 11-14)

All entities of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, including local churches and districts, overseas camps, support organizations, and the National Headquarters, should focus their resources on the fulfillment of this central mission.
