Stephen believes:

The verbal, plenary inspiration of the Scriptures (Stephen uses the KJV in his messages).

Only one true God.

The Trinity of the Godhead.

The Holy Spirit's indwelling of all believers in Christ.

That Satan is real, a fallen angel, and the enemy of God.

The Genesis account of creation.

Original sin and the fall of man.

The virgin birth of Christ.

Salvation through faith in the shed blood of Christ.

The bodily resurrection and priesthood of Christ.

Grace and the new birth.

Justification by faith.

Sanctification of the believer.

Security of the believer.

The church is an institution created by God.

The ordinances of the local church: Baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper.

That marriage is between one man and one woman only, and is the only form of sexual relations approved by God. 

The pre-tribulational rapture of the church.

The pre-millennial return of Christ.

The millennial reign of Christ.

Eternal glory in Heaven for those who accept Jesus.

Eternal torment in Hell for those who do not accept Jesus.
