The Bible is the inspired "Word of God". A revelation from God to man of His will and plan for man. It contains the infallible rule of faith and conduct. 2nd Timothy 3:15-16


Section III    Man, His Fall and Redemption

We believe man was created in the image of God, that he was created a free moral agent, free to choose good or evil and that he fell through voluntary transgression.
