1.  The Scriptures

We believe that every Word in every part of the original manuscripts of the Bible is given by inspiration of God (2 Timothy 3:16). It is truth without any mixture or error.  We believe the Bible to be the center of true Christian unity and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds and opinions shall be tried (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21).

2. The True God

We believe that there is one and only one living and true God (Deut. 6:4, Jer. 10:10). He is infinite, intelligent, perfect in spirit, and a personal being.  He is the creator, preserver, and supreme ruler of the universe (1 Kings 8:27; Acts 17:24-28; Psalm 139:1-6).  He is inexpressibly glorious in holiness and all other perfections (love, power, righteousness, truth, etc). We believe that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19; 1 Cor. 12:4-6), equal in every Divine perfection (John 10:30; 14:23; 17:5,10) and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption (Eph. 2:18; Rev. 1:4-5).

A. The Father

We believe that He is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (Eph. 1:3) and the Father of all who come to God through Jesus Christ (John 1:12).  We rejoice that He so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

B. The Son

We believe that the whole of Scripture centers around the Lord Jesus Christ, and points to His suffering and the glory that should follow (Luke 24:27, 44). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, being supernaturally conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary (Gen. 3:15; Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:18-25).  We believe that He was without sin in His own life (1 Pet. 2:22) but that He was made to be sin for us upon the cross of Calvary where He suffered all the wrath of God against sin as a vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice (1 Pet. 2:24).  His burial declares the complete putting away and removal of our sin (Rom. 6:6), and His literal, bodily resurrection assures our justification and shows His complete victory over sin, death, and Satan (1 Cor. 15:1-8).

C. The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, equal with the Father and the Son and of the same nature (John 16:7).  We believe that the Holy Spirit is the agent in the new birth: all believers are baptized in the Spirit into the body of Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 12:12-14) and from the moment of conversion, He indwells the child of God (1 Cor. 3:16).

3. Satan

We believe in the personality of Satan, that he is the unholy god of this age and the author of all the powers of darkness, and that he is destined to an eternal justice in the Lake of Fire. (Isa. 14:12-15; 2 Cor. 4:3-4). We believe that through the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ a perfect judgment of Satan and his followers has been secured (John 12:31; 16:11).

4. Man

We believe that man came into being by the direct creation of God as recorded in Genesis 1 and 2 and not through evolution. We believe that man was created in holiness and in the image of God, but by voluntary transgression he fell from that sinless and happy state (Gen. 3).  Consequently, all of mankind is now sinful—not only by nature, but also by choice—and is utterly void of the holiness required by the law of God. All mankind, positively inclined to evil (Rom. 5:19a; Rom. 3:23), are therefore under just condemnation to eternal ruin without defense or excuse (Eph. 2:13; Gal. 3:22). We believe that regeneration or the new birth is that miracle wrought in the soul by the Holy Spirit, in which the Divine Nature is imparted unto man when he repents of sin and believes in the Gospel of Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 5:17; John 3:1-14).

5. Salvation

We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace through the imputed merits and the mediating work of the Son of God.  As a vicarious sacrifice on Calvary’s tree, shedding His precious blood for our redemption (Isa. 53; 2 Cor. 5:21), Jesus Christ died, was buried, and was raised again to assure our justification.  We believe that personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only condition of salvation (John 1:12; 5:24). Genuine repentance—both a godly sorrow for sin and a turning from sin—is an essential aspect of the sinner’s salvation (Acts 2:37, 38).

6. The Church

We believe that the Scriptures teach that the true or invisible church is composed of all who are born again and that by the same Spirit we are all baptized into one body (1 Cor. 12:12-27). We believe that the visible church consists of local congregations of believers (3 John 9; 1 Cor. 1:1-13), associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the Gospel (Acts. 2:4,42,47). We believe that the local, visible church of Christ is a voluntary and independent autonomous group of believers (Matt. 18:15 – 18) and that each congregation recognizes its own democratic self-containing government as its highest authority for carrying out the will of the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 11:21-26).

1. Baptism

We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water to show forth in a solemn and beautiful symbol our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Saviour. We believe that Christian baptism is incumbent upon each believer (Matt. 28:19-20; Col. 2:12).

2. The Lord’s Supper

We believe that the Lord’s Supper is the commemoration of Christ’s death until He comes and that the elements are symbolic of the broken body and the shed blood of the Lord Jesus. Only believers should partake, and the partaking should always be preceded by a solemn self-examination (1 Cor. 11:23-28).

7. End Times

We believe in the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His Bride, the Church (1 Thess. 4:13-18). Upon that return, believers will appear before the judgment seat of Christ to be rewarded according to their works (1 Cor. 3:12-15). We believe in the personal, visible, pre-millenial coming of Christ to restore the Throne of David and to reign one thousand years (Rev. 19:11-16). We believe in the final resurrection of the unjust to stand before God at the Great White Throne Judgment and that whoever is not found written in the Book of Life will be cast into the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:11-15). We believe in the glorious, eternal reign of God (1 Cor. 15:24-28).
