- ...there is one God, Lord of the universe, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
- ...in the deity of Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His perfect, sinless life; in His miracles; in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to heaven to the right hand of God the Father; and in His personal and visible return in power and glory.
