What We Believe

The whole Bible, the Canon of the Old and New Testaments, is our sufficient rule for faith and practice. Hence, this statement of faith is intended as a basis of fellowship among us (Acts 2:42). No claim is made that this statement contains all of the truth found in the canonical Scriptures, only that it covers our foundational establishment in the Gospel of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  1. We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the inspired (God-breathed) and inerrant Word of God, and are the final source in all matters relating to faith and conduct. (2nd Tim. 3:16, 2nd Pet. 1:20-21, and Matt. 24:35).
  2. We believe that the Scriptures are the standard of truth, morality, and justice. (John 17:17, Ex. 20:1-17, and Malt. 5:17-19).
  3. We believe that the One True God is eternally manifested in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Ghost. (lst John 1:1-3, John 15:26, Matt. 28:19, 2nd Cor. 13:14, John 16:7-15, Is. 48:16) John 14:15-23, and lst John 5:7).
  4. We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ to his mother Mary through a divine act of the Holy Ghost. (Mt. 1: 18-25, and Luke 1:27, 35).
  5. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but through voluntary transgression, fell and spiritually died, and that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to suffer and die as the perfect sacrifice that we might, through Him, obtain redemption and forgiveness of sin. (Gen. 1:27, Gen. 2:16-17, Gen. 3:6-7, 1st Cor. 15:21-22, Is. 53, and 1st Pet. 2:21-25).
  6. We believe that salvation may only be obtained through repentance toward God, and faith in the substitutionary atonement of the shed blood of Jesus Christ as a sacrifice for our sin. There is nothing the sinner can do to save himself. (Eph. 2:8-9, Rom. 3:10-24, Rom. 6:23, lst Pet. 2:21-25, and John 14:6).
  7. We believe that honest repentance and faith toward Jesus Christ will produce a sanctified vessel and separation from the world of sin. (lst Thess. 4:3-7, 1St Thess. 5:23, 2nd Cor. 6: 14-16, and 2nd Cor. 7:1).
  8. We believe that Jesus Christ will personally return to this earth as He went away. (Acts 1:11, Titus 2:12-13, and Heb. 9:28).
  9. We believe that after this life there is a place prepared for the saved, and a place of punishment for the lost. (John 14:14, Rev. 21:3-4, and Rev. 20:10).
  10. We believe that there is a devil, Satan, the enemy of God and man, who shall be ultimately overcome by the triumph of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Matt. 4:1-11, 1st John 3:8, Heb. 2:14, Gen. 3:14-15, and Rev. 20:10).
  11. We believe in water baptism, by immersion, as commanded in the Scriptures for all who - repent and believe on the LORD JESUS CHRIST. (Matt. 28:19, Rom. 6:4, and Matt. 3:13-17).
  12. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a separate and distinct baptism available to all believers. (Acts 2:4 Acts 8:15-17, Acts 10:44-48, and Acts 19:1-6).
  13. We believe in the importance of every member of the body of Christ, that each has gifts and the potential for gifts that uniquely place them in the church. (1st Cor. 12-14, Rom. 12, and Eph. 4:8, 11).
  14. We believe in the necessity of Christians to understand the principles of the doctrine of Christ as displayed in Hebrews 6:1-2 for their maturity. The principles are 1) Repentance from dead works.2) Faith towards God. 3) The doctrine of Baptisms. 4) The laying on of hands. 5) The Resurrection of the Dead. 6) Eternal Judgment.
  15. We believe in the Church as the manifestation of God to a lost and dying world; an overcoming Church revealing the wisdom and power of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. (Eph. 3:9-11, Phil. 2:15-16, and Matt. 28:18-20).
  16. We believe that responsibility has been given to the church for the evangelization of the whole world. (Mk. 16:15-16 and Matt. 28:18-20).
  17. We believe in the need for each Christian to be in a covenant with God which will produce the following: 1) A personal relationship of Agape love with Jesus Christ, 2) A relationship of Agape love with fellow Christians, 3) A lifestyle that includes the habits of prayer and study of the Bible, 4) Faithful attendance to church services, 5) An attitude of service and participation, 6) Financial support to the local church and it's ministries. (Matt. 22:37- 40, John 15:12, 2nd Thess. 5:17, 2nd Tim. 2:15, John 13:14-15, Heb. 10:24-25, Mal. 3:10, Prov. 3:9, 2nd Cor. 9:7, Malt. 23:23; Ex. 35, and Malt. 16:21).
  18. We believe in the Scriptural order and organization of the local church and in the authority of local church government. (Titus 1:5-9, 1st Tim. 3:1-15, Acts 6:1-7, lst Pet. 5:1-4.
  19. We believe in the five-fold ministry (apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers) as the tools for maturing the people of God, the Church. (Ephesians 4:11-16).
  20. We believe in the ministry of spiritual worship and praise to the LORD, in a manner prescribed in the scriptures. (Cal. 3:16-17, Eph. 5:17-20, Psalm 149, Psalm 150, and1st Cor.14).
