1. We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God; that they are able to make wise unto salvation and are the final authority of faith and life. (II Tim. 3:16-17; II Pet. 1:20-21)
  2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19-20)
  3. We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His intercessory work, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Luke 1:34,35; II Cor. 5:21; Matt. 11:4,6; Rev. 5:9; Luke 24:36-43; Mark 16:19; I John 2:1; Luke 21:27)
  4. We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and hereby incurred, not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God, and that every human being is born with a sinful nature; therefore, we believe that for salvation of all men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary. (Gen. 1:26,27; Rom. 5:12; Titus 3:5)
  5. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe on and accept Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. (Is. 53:3-6; Rom. 5:9)
  6. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. (Rom. 8:1-39)
  7. We believe in the pre-tribulational, pre-millenial rapture of the Church, the Body and Bride of Christ. We believe in the period of Great Tribulation of seven years following the Rapture. The Great Tribulation (Daniel’s seventieth week) will end with the coming of Christ in power and glory to the earth in order to set up His Kingdom and rule for a thousand years. (I Thess. 4:13-18; Dan. 9:24-27; Rev. 20:1-6) We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29)
  8. We believe that individual Christians are duty bound to bear constant and consistent witness by word, character, and deed, to Jesus Christ and His power to save. (Acts 1:8;James 1:22)
  9. We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ as a living, spiritual body of which our Lord Himself is the Head and consisting of all regenerated people. (Eph. 4:4-16)
  10. We believe in the observance of the Lord’s Day as a day of rest and worship; in the ministry of the Word and in ordinances which Christ has appointed for His Church. (Heb.10:25)
    1. Believer’s Baptism – We believe in baptism by immersion as a means of testimony for the Church, not as a means of grace, but as an outward sign of an inward work of grace. (Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 2:38,41; 10:4748; 19:1-6; Col. 2:12; Rom. 6:4-6)
    2. The Lord’s Supper – We believe in the Lord’s Supper as a means of testimony for the Church, not as a means of grace, but as a token of remembrance of the Atonement of Christ till He come. (Luke 22:19-20; I Cor. 11:23-26)
  11. We believe in the eternal security of the believer in Christ. (John 10:27-29; Rom. 8:35-39)
  12. We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord; and that separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices, and associations is commanded by God. (Rom. 12:1-2; 14:13; I John 2:15-17; I Tim. 3:1-5; II John9-11; II Cor.6:14; 7:1)
