Beliefs

The Word of God

We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are verbally inspired (God-breathed) and without error in the original languages and that they are the supreme and final authority in matters of faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:15-17)

 

God the Father

We believe that God is supreme in His person, eternal in His being, absolute in His attributes and glorious in His perfection. We believe in one Triune God, Creator of heaven and earth, and that God is manifest in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory.  (Exodus 20:2-3; Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Matthew 28:19-20)

 

God the Son

We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, that He was conceived without sin by the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary. He lived without sin and died a vicarious death, rose bodily from the dead, ascended bodily to heaven, from whence He will come again to rapture believers and raise the righteous dead, and that He will rule and reign for one thousand years upon the throne of His forefather, David, in Jerusalem. (Isaiah 7:14; John 1:1, 14; Galatians 4:4)

 

God the Holy Spirit

We believe God the Holy Spirit is a person who restrains evil in the world and convicts men of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He dwells in all who believe in Jesus. From the moment of belief in the Son, the Spirit baptizes believers into the body, seals them for salvation, regenerates them to new life, bestows spiritual gifts on each one, and is fully present to continually fill (control and guide) His own. (John 16:7-11; John 3:8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 13; John 14:16-17; Ephesians 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19)

 

The Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that he sinned and incurred not only physical death but spiritual death (separation from God) and that all human beings therefore are born with a sinful nature and are also sinners by choice. The wages of sin is death, and death passed upon all men and women. (Genesis 1:27; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; 5:12-19; 6:23)

 

Salvation of Sinners

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, that it is the free gift of God and not of works, lest any man should boast. Salvation is only accomplished by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as men put their personal faith and saving trust in Him.

(John 3:3-6; Acts 16:31; Ephesians 2:8-10)

 

The Church

We believe that the local church is an autonomous, baptized (immersed) body of believers unified together by their faith in Christ, preaching His Word, practicing His teachings and obeying His command to go into all the world with the gospel. The ordinances of the church are two-fold, baptism and the Lord's Supper. The officers of the church are two-fold, pastor and deacons. Christ is the Head of the Church. The complete body of Christ is a spiritual organism consisting of all born-again believers of the New Testament dispensation. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 20:28; Ephesians 1:22-23)
