What We Believe

The Scriptures

We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, the infallible and only rule of faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:19-21).

The Trinity

We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three Persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; that they are equal in every divine perfection (Exodus 20:2,3; Matthew 28:19,20).

Creation

We believe the Genesis account of creation as a literal (Genesis 1:1-2:25; Colossians 1:16; John 1:3-10).

Satan

We believe in the reality and personality of Satan; that he is the author of sin, the initiator of man’s temptation and fall (Genesis 3 Matthew 4:1-11 Isaiah 14:12-17).

The Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in innocence, but fell in Adam, and is unable to remedy his lost condition (Genesis 3:1-6; Romans 3:10-19; 5:12,19).

Salvation

We believe that the salvation of sinners is divinely initiated and wholly by grace through faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ (John 3:16; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8-10).

Christian Growth

We believe that all who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ will become more like Christ as the Holy Spirit leads and teaches them daily the Word of God (Romans 8:28,29).

The Church

We believe that the church is the baptized believers, voluntarily associated by covenant in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 2:41-47); that it is the responsibility of all church members to make disciples of Christ (Matthew 28:19, 20.

Church Ordinances

We believe Jesus Christ instituted the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper to be observed until he comes (Matthew 28:19, 20; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34).

Separation

We believe that the Christian is to separate himself unto Christ in true holiness (Romans 12:1,2).

Future Events

We believe in the pre-tribulational, pre-millennial return of Christ, an event which can occur at any moment (Philippians 3:20,21); that there will be a bodily resurrection of the dead - the just will enter into eternal joy with God (Revelation 21:1-7), the unjust will experience everlasting conscious punishment in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8-9).
