What We Believe

1.  We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as being infallible, verbally inspired of God, and inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and practice.  (II Tim. 3:15-17; II Pet. 1:20-21)
2.  We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 3:16-17)
3. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.  (Col. 1:15; Phil. 2:5-8; Luke 1:27, 35)
4. We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned incurring not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.  (Gen. 1:27; Rom. 5:12)
5. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures and that all who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood.  (I Cor. 15:3-4; Rom. 3:23-25)
6. We believe that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit, thereby becoming children of God and have eternal security; that it is impossible for one born into the family of God to lose their salvation.  (John 10:27-29; Rom. 8:33-39; Phil. 1:6)
7. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there as High Priest and Advocate.  (I Cor. 15:3-4; Eph. 1:20; Heb. 2:17; I John 2:1)
8. We believe in the personal, premillennial, pretribulational, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, when the Church will be gathered together unto Him.  (Acts 1:11; John 14:1-3; I Thess. 4:13-18; Rev. 3:3)
9. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.  (I Cor. 15:22-24; Matt. 25:31-34, 41)
10. We believe that the scriptural ordinances of the church are baptism and the Lord’s supper, and are to be administered by the local church; that baptism, by immersion, should be administered to believers only as a symbol and testimony of their belief in the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and as a testimony of their death, burial, and resurrection with Him; and that the Lord’s supper should be partaken of by believers only to show forth His death, “till He comes.”  (I Cor. 11:26; Matt. 28:19)
11. We believe in separation from liberalism, modernism, worldliness, the charismatic movement and other teachings in conflict with the Word of God.  (II Pet. 2:1-3; II Cor. 6:14-18; Num. 33:50-55)
