We Believe...

That the entire Bible is verbally inspired by God and in the original is infallible, and that it’s teaching and authority are absolute, supreme and final. 

In one God eternally and co-equally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

That the Lord Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and is truly God and truly man.

That man was created in the image of God, that he sinned willfully and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death and that since the fall all men have been born with a sinful nature and are totally unable to retrieve their estate of sinlessness.

That upon reaching the age of accountability or moral responsibility each individual becomes personally responsible before God for his soul’s eternal destiny.

That the Lord Jesus Christ, according to the determinate foreknowledge of God, died for our sins according to the Scripture, that He arose from the dead according to the Scripture, that His sacrifice was substitutionary and is propitiatory for all the sins of all men.

That each one who will receive the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior on the ground of faith alone in His shed blood is born again, and is a partaker of God’s own nature through the Person of the Holy Sprit who dwells in each born again one.

That after our Lord’s personal, bodily resurrection He ascended into Heaven and is there at the Father’s right hand as our Intercessor and High Priest.

In the personal, premillennial and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

In the eternal security of all who are truly born again.

In the bodily resurrection of the saved and of the lost; on the part of the saved, resurrection to eternal joy in the presence of God, and on the part of the lost, resurrection to eternal, conscious torment in Hell.

In the baptism in water by immersion as a step of obedience after regeneration, and as an outward symbol of what has been accomplished in the heart by the Holy Spirit.

In the Word of God, apart from all human interpretation, as the only authority on individual lives and the conduct in the assembly of the saved.

That Christ instituted the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper to be observed until He comes.

That it is the responsibility of all who are saved to seek to win others to Christ.

That the Church is the Body of Christ formed by the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and that all believers are members thereof and are a holy and royal priesthood.

That Satan is a personal being, and that he is man’s greatest enemy and tempter, also the enemy of God, the accuser of the saints, the author of all false religions, the prince of the powers of spiritual darkness and the god of this world.

Article III

We believe that the Bible in its sixty-six books is the only Word of God and is entirely sufficient for the believer’s faith and practice.

Article IV

We believe that while all true believers have been provided with one or more spiritual gifts through the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:11), certain of the gifts enumerated in the New Testament were pertinent only to the day when there was not as yet a completed written revelation. Among the gifts no longer pertinent are tongues (and their interpretation); miracles and healing through specially endowed individuals.

Article V

In this day of worldliness among professing Christians, it is important that the attention of believers be called to the plain teaching of Scripture. 2 Corinthians 6:14 – 17:1 and Romans 14:21 plainly indicate that the child of God is to refrain from any unequal yokes, entangling alliances, or questionable practices which will hinder his influence or harm his weaker brother.
