What we believe

We Believe in...

  1. The Trinity of God, composed of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, the same in essence, equal in poster and glory. (John 4:24; John 15:26; II Cor. 13:14; Matt. 6-9; John 8:36; John 14:26; I John 5:7.)
  2. The infallible, inerrant Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God and are the only rule of faith and practice. ( II Tim. 3:16-17; II Pet. 1:21; Prov. 30:5-6.)
  3. The Bible Account of Creation. (Gen. 1:1; Heb. 11:3; John 1:1-3; Col. 1:16,17.)
  4. The Personality of Satan. ( I Peter 5:8-9; Eph. 6:12; Isa. 14:12-15; Ezek. 28:12-15; II Cor. 11:13-15; Rev. 20:1-3, 10.)
  5. The Fall of Adam from his original rectitude and in him all the posterity in consequence of which we inherit a fallen and depraved nature, and of man's inability to restore himself into the favor of God. (Gen. 1:27, 2:17, Gen. 3; Rom. 5:12,19; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 3:11; Jer. 13:2; John 1:13.)
  6. The Virgin birth and deity of Christ. ( Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:23; Luke 1:31-35; Matt. 16:16-17; John 10:30; John 1:1-3.)

  11. Good works are the fruits of faith, and follow after justification, and are the evidence of a gracious state, and all believers are bound to obey every command of God from the principle of love. (Eph. 2:10; Titus 2-.11-13; Tit. 3:7-8; James 2:17; John 8:31; John 14:15; John 14:23.)

  14. The Lord's Supper as a church ordinance whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming. (Matt. 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-25; Luke 22:19-20; I Cor. 11:17-29.)
  15. A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Christ, committed to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. This church is an autonomous body, operating through democratic processes under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In such a congregation members are equally responsible. Its Scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. (Matt. 16:15-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2: 41-42,47; 5:11-14; Rom. 1:7; I Cor. 1:2; 3:16; 5:4-5; I Tim 3:1-15; 4:14; I Peter 5:1-4.)

  19. The reality of hell, involving eternal punishment of the finally unrepentant people. ( Mark 9:43-48; Luke 6:19-31; Rev. 14:11; Rev. 19-20; Rev. 20:12-15; II Thes. 1:7-9; Matt. 25:41; Luke 12:4-5; II Peter 3:7.)
