Statement of Faith

The Bible
We believe the Bible to be the complete​ Word of God; historically accurate and entirely free from error. We believe that the sixty-six books comprising the Old Testament and the New Testament were verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit of God and that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith, practice and the true basis of Christian union. 

We believe there is one God; Holy, Sovereign, existing in three Persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

We believe in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ, in His eternal existence with the Father in preincarnate glory, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return. 

​Holy Spirit
We believe in the absolute and essential deity personality of the Holy Spirit who convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment, who regenerates, sanctifies, empowers and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ.

We believe that Satan exists as an evil personality and is active in the world; the originator of evil, an arch-enemy of God and 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 and in dire need of a Savior. 

We believe salvation is by sovereign electing grace of God, that by appointment of the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered substitutionary death, once and for all and propitiatory death. We believe that justification is by faith alone in the all sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that those whom, God has effectually called shall be divinely presevered and finally perfected in the image of the Lord. 

​Future Things
We believe in that "blessed hope", the personal pre-millennial return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (John 14:3, Act 1;11, 1 Cor. 15:51-57, 1 Thess. 4; 13-18; 5; 1-5, Titus 2:13, 2 Peter 3; 10) in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and the judgment and conscious eternal punishment of the wicked. 

​Local Church
We believe that the Local Church is a company of baptized 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 that it is a sovereign, independent body, existing its own divinely awarded gifts, precepts and privileges under the Lordship of Christ, the Great Head of the Church. 

We believe there are only two ordinances for the church regularly observed in the New Testament: 

​a) Baptism - The immersion of a believer in water whereby he obeys Christ's command and sets forth his identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.

​b) The Lord's Table - A memorial wherein the believer partakes of two elements: the bread and the wine, which symbolizes the Lord's body and shed blood, proclaiming His death until He comes. It should be preceded always with solemn self-examination.

The Church and the State
We believe in the absolute separation of Church and the State.

​The Lord's Day
We believe that the first day of the week is the Lord's Day and that, in a special sense, it is the divinely appointed day for worship and spiritual exercise. It should be observed and never be neglected by those who professed Christ.

​Civil Government
We believe that civil government is of divine appointment for the interest and good of society, the magistrates are to be prayed, conscientiously honored and obeyed, except only in those things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the only Lord of the conscience and Prince of the rulers of the earth.
