THE BIBLE — We believe the whole Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is the verbally inspired Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16). We believe the translation for English-speakers is the King James Version. It is the Bible we use from our pulpit and in our classes.
JESUS — We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Ghost in a miraculous manner; born of Mary, a virgin, as no other man was ever born or can ever be born of woman, and that He is both the Son of God, and God the Son. (Matthew 1:23; John 1:1,14)
SALVATION — We believe that Christ died for our sins (1 Corinthians 15:3). We believe that He arose from the grave the third day. (1 Corinthians 15:4). We believe that He alone is the mediator and intercessor between God and man. (1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 7:25). We believe that in order to be “saved” the spirit must be born again. (John 3:3). We believe that the Holy Spirit rebirths our spirit when we repent and believe (have faith). (Luke 13:3, 5; Acts 3:19; 17:13; John 3:16). We believe that salvation is by God's grace through faith, a gift of God, and not by works. (Ephesians 2:8-10).
BAPTISM and THE LORD'S SUPPER — We believe that immersion baptism and the Lord's Supper are the only two ordinances that Jesus left for His church, and that they are pictorial and memorial in nature. We believe that every born again soul should declare his/her faith through baptism by immersion in water. (Romans 6:4-5) We believe that the Lord's Supper is to be observed as a local body, with unleavened bread and pure grape juice which memorialize His broken body and shed blood. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED — We believe that Christ keeps those who are born again eternally secure. (2 Timothy 1:12; John 10:28)
BIBLICAL SEPARATION — We believe that Christians are called to separation from worldly, sinful practices, unto a life of usefulness for Christ. (2 Corinthians 6:17)
THE LOCAL CHURCH — We believe a church is an independent, local, visible body of baptized believers whose mission is to preach and teach the gospel of salvation. (Matthew 28:18-20)
