In the Triune God:  God the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
In the divine inspiration: of the Old and New Testament Scriptures and that they
        contain all truths necessary to faith and Christian living.
In regeneration:  that work of divine grace, whereby the penitent , believing soul is
        made spiritually alive.
In Sanctification:  that work of divine grace, subsequent to Regeneration, whereby
        the believer is purified in heart.
In the sacraments:  Baptism (By any mode; sprinkling, pouring, or immersion.), and
        Holy Communion.
As the result of Christ's meritorious death on the cross, Salvation is freely offered to
        all who will  repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the second coming of Christ, the resurrection of the dead, a day of final judgment
        and the eternal destiny of the soul.

Fun Things to do During Boring Sermons

- Pass a note to the organist asking if he/she plays requests.
- See if a yawn rally is contagious.
- Slap your neighbor.  See if they turn the other cheek.  If not, raise your hand and
       tell the preacher.
- Sit in the back row and roll a handful of marbles under the pews ahead of you.
      After the service, credit yourself with 10 points for every marble that made it to
      the front.
- Using church bulletins for raw materials, design, test fly and modify a collection of
       paper airplanes.
- Start from the back of the church and try to crawl all the way to the front, under
       the pews, without being noticed.
- Try to unobtrusively draw your arms up into your sleeves and turn your shirt
       around backwards.
- Crack your knuckles.
- Twiddle your thumbs or twiddle your neighbor's thumbs.
- Try listening for God To Speak and find out that the message isn't as boring as you
       first thought.....that the fun has just begun!
