Bible – We believe the Bible to be the true Word of God; that the sixty-six books, as originally written, comprising the Old and New Testaments were verbally inspired by the Spirit of God and are entirely free from error; that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice and the true basis of Christian union.
God – We believe in God, creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Christ – We believe in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ, in His eternal existence with the Father in pre-incarnate glory, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, resurrection, triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return.
Holy Spirit – We believe in the absolute and essential deity and personality of the Holy Spirit Who convinces of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; Who regenerates, sanctifies, illuminates and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ.
Satan – We believe that Satan exists as an evil personality, the originator of sin, the archenemy of God and man.
Man – We believe that man was divinely created in the image of God, that he sinned – becoming guilty before God – resulting in total depravity; thereby incurring physical and spiritual death.
Salvation – We believe that salvation is by the sovereign, electing grace of God; that by the appointment of the father, Christ voluntarily suffered a vicarious, expiatory and propitiatory death; that justification is by faith alone in all sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and that those whom God has effectually called shall be divinely preserved and finally perfected in the image of the Lord.
Future Things – We believe in the personal, bodily and glorious return of the Lord.
The Local Church – We believe that a church is a company of immersed believers, called out from the world, separated unto the Lord Jesus, voluntarily associated for the ministry of the Word, the mutual edification of its’ members, the propagation of the faith and the observance of the ordinances. We believe it is a sovereign, independent body, exercising its’ own divinely awarded gifts, precepts, and privileges under the Lordship of Christ, the Great Head of the church. We believe that its’ officers are Pastors and Elders’ and Deacons.
Ordinances – We believe that there are only two ordinances for the church regularly observed in the New Testament in the following order:
Church and State – We believe in the entire separation of church and state.
Religious Liberty – We believe in religious liberty; that everyone has the right to practice and propagate their beliefs.
Government – We believe that civil government is of divine appointment for the interest and good order of society; that magistrate are to be prayed for, conscientiously honored and obeyed, except only in the things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the only Lord of conscience and Prince of Kings of the earth.
The Lord’s Day – We believe that the first day of the week is the Lord’s day and that, in special sense, it is divinely appointed the day for worship and spiritual exercise.
