A.      Bible

We believe the Bible, the Holy Scriptures, as given in the Old and New Testaments, to be the inerrant, infallible, inspired Word of God, the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and practice, and the true basis of Christian union and fellowship. Jn 10:35,  Heb 3:7,4:7, 2 Tim 3:16-17; Num 23:19, 2 Pet 1:15-21.

B.      God

We believe in one God, creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Gen 1:1; Jn 10:30; Jn 4:24

C.      Christ

We believe in the absolute and essential deity and humanity of Christ Jesus our Lord, in His eternal existence with the Father in pre-incarnate glory, in His supernatural conception, sinless life, atoning death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, mediation ministry and personal return. Jn 1:1; 10:38; 14:9-12; 17; Gal 4:4; 1Tim 3:16; Heb 9:24; 1 Cor 15:20-23; 1 Jn 2:1; Phil. 2:5-11; Jn 20:30, 31

D.      Holy Spirit         

We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit, His eternal and essential deity, His work of convicting, regenerating, and sanctifying the believer and in His ministry to produce His fruit and gifts within the Church. Jn 16:5-15; Rom 8:5-6; 1 Cor 12: 1-11

E.      Man

We believe human beings are created by God, in His image, for His glory. We believe that through disobedience, we became dead in our trespasses and sins, and are entirely dependent on the mercy of God. Gen 1:26, 27, 2:7; Rom 3:10, 21-24, 5:12; Eph 2:1-5; Gen 3

F.      Salvation

We believe that salvation is through the sovereign grace of God and that it is appropriated through repentance and faith in the atoning sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ for sin, that justification is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Eph 2:8; 1 Cor 15:1-4; Acts 20:21; Lk 13:1-5, 24:46-48; Rom 4:25; 5:10-11; Jn 3:16; Rom. 10:9-10

G.      Future Things

We believe in the personal, bodily, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust and the eternal reward of the righteous and the retribution of the wicked. Acts 1:11; Jn 5:28-29; Lk 16:19-31; Jn 14:1-3; Rev 20:11-15, 21:3-8, 22:12; Mk 12:17, 13:3-27, 32-37

H.      The Church

We believe the Church is a company of believers, immersed into the name of the Trinity, called out from the world, separated unto the Lord Jesus Christ, voluntarily associated for the ministry of the Word, the mutual edification of its members, the propagation of the gospel of saving grace, and the observance of its ordinances. 1 Pet 1:13-16, 2:9-11

We believe the Church is an independent body under the sovereign power of the Lord Jesus Christ, the great Head of the Church, exercising its own divinely awarded gifts, precepts, and privileges, with no ecclesiastical authority higher than itself, meeting for worship and fellowship on the Lord's Day, the first day of the week, as Scripturally appointed. Acts 2:39-47; Col 1:18-24; Eph 4:4-6; 1 Cor 1:2; Eph 1:17-18, 2:19-22

I.       Ordinances

We believe that there are two ordinances for the Church, regularly observed in the New Testament: 

Baptism — the immersion of the believer, in water, into the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, whereby the believer obeys Christ's command and sets forth his or her identity with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. Col 2:12; Rom 6:35; Acts 2:41, 8:37-38; Matt 28:18-20

The Lord's Supper — wherein the believer partakes of the two elements, bread and wine, which symbolize the Lord's body and shed blood, proclaiming His death until He comes.  1 Cor 11:23-29

J.       Church and State (Civil Government)

We believe in the institutional separation of Church and State and acknowledge that civil authorities are ordained of God for the good order of society. Rom 13:1; 1 Tim 2:1-3; 1 Pet 2:13-18; Mk 12:17
