What We Believe: 


The Holy Scriptures:

We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God, written by holy men of old as they were moved by the Holy Spirit of God; that its primary purpose is the salvation of sinners; and that it does not merely contain the truth, but is the truth and the standard by which all men and all truth must be tested. (II Timothy 3:15–16, II Peter 1:20–21, John 17:17)


The True God:

We believe that there is one, and only one, true and living God: that He is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, in three persons; The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit; that these three, though one, are three distinct persons and are equal in every divine perfection (Deut. 4:35, Isa. 44:6, Gen. 17:1, Psalm 139:1-7, Psalm 99:9).


The Virgin Birth:

We believe that Jesus Christ came in the flesh by way of the Virgin birth, having no earthly father, but was conceived in the Virgin-Mary by the Holy Spirit.  (Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:18-23


The Fall of Man:

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God but that he fell from his perfect state by voluntary transgression; as a result of all men born in sin and have, through inheritance, a depraved nature utterly devoid of the holiness required by the law of God that he is a sinner by nature, choice, and practice, and is, therefore, under just condemnation, without defense of excuse.  (Gen. 1:26-27, Gen. 2:17a, Gen. 3:16, Rom. 5:12)

The Way of Salvation:

We believe that the only way man can be saved from eternal ruin is by truly repenting of his sin and trusting in Jesus Christ, God’s Son, as his personal Savior; that such experience consummates the new birth.  He is transformed or regenerated by God the Holy Spirit and becomes a true child of God that this so great salvation is wholly by the grace of God, a free gift of God’s love and cannot be obtained by any good works or deeds of man.  We further believe that since salvation is by God’s grace alone, when it comes to the individual heart it is theirs for time and eternity.  They are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.  (Luke 13:3, John 1:12, Acts 4:12, Acts 16:31, Eph. 2:8-9, Titus 3:5, John 5:24, I Peter 1:3-5)


Our Justification:

We believe that the great gospel blessing which Christ secures to such as believe in Him is justification; that justification includes the pardon of sin, and the promise of eternal life on principles of righteousness; that it is bestowed, not in any consideration of works or righteousness which we have done, but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood; by virtue of which faith his perfect righteousness is freely imputed to us of God; that it brings us into a state of most blessed peace and favor with God, and secures every other blessing needful for time and eternity.  (John 1:16, Eph. 3:8, Acts 13:39, Rom. 5:9, Rom. 5:17)


The Local Church:

We believe the local Church is an assembly of born again baptized believers, associated by His laws; and exercising the gifts, rights and privileges invested in them by His Word.  (II Cor. 1:1, Gal. 1:2, Acts 5:11, Rev. 2:1, 3, 12, Rev. 3:1, 7, 14)


Church Ordinances:

We believe that the ordinances joined by the Gospel, given to the Church by Christ, and to be observed by the Church are two; Baptism and the Lord’s Supper; that these are positive and sacred institutions, and the obligation to honor and observe them comes directly from the authority of Christ who appointed them.  (Matt. 28:19, Matt. 28:26-29, Luke 22:17-20, I Cor. 11:23-30)
Baptism: We believe Christian Baptism is the immersion in water of one who has had a personal saving experience with Christ; that it symbolizes the Believer being buried with Christ and raised to walk in newness of life with Christ; that this ordinance must be administered in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.


The Lord’s Supper: We believe the Lord’s Supper is to be observed by those who have been truly saved by Christ, and is to be observed only after a solemn self-examination; that it is a commemoration of the dying love or our Lord Jesus; the bread symbolizing His broken body, and the juice of grapes symbolizing His shed blood – these being taken together show forth His death until He comes again.  This ordinance shall be observed by this Church each quarter.

Judgment of the Righteous and Unsaved:

We believe that everyone, saved and unsaved, shall face God in judgment.  According to the Holy Scriptures, the judgment of the saved will be separate from the judgment of the unsaved.  We believe that the Scriptures teach that these judgments shall be as follows:
Judgement Seat of Christ – II Cor. 5:10: Christians shall at this time be judged according to their work from the time they receive Jesus Christ as their Savior until the time they stand before Him in judgment.  They shall be rewarded or they shall suffer loss according as their works shall be.
Great White Throne Judgment – Rev. 20:11-15: All the unsaved will be judged according to their works and cast into the lake of fire to suffer forever for rejecting Jesus Christ as their Savior.


The World to Come:

We believe that the end of this present world will come by fire and that the world to come will be eternal; that in the world to come there will be two eternal places; a place of endless joy for all the people of God who have been saved by His grace, and a place of endless punishment for all who have never been reconciled to God by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.  These two places are known as heaven and hell.
Heaven: It is a place of beauty and bliss, wherein dwelleth righteousness, where God will dwell with his blood bought people forever.  (II Cor. 12:2-4, II Cor. 5:1, I Peter 1:3-5, Rev. 21:22)
Hell: It is a place of ceaseless torment, characterized by fire and brimstone.  It is a place where all who have refused God’s salvation will suffer forever.  (Luke 16:19-31, Matt. 5:22, 29, 30, Matt. 23:33, Rev. 21:8)
