What we Believe

  • The Holy Scriptures

    We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16,17).

  • The Eternal Godhead

    We believe God is Triune:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).

  • The Fall of Man

    We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience, he fell from perfection (Rom. 5:12).

  • The Plan of Salvation

    We believe that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).

  • Salvation through Grace

    We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God, pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8).

  • Repentance and Acceptance

    We believe that upon sincere repentance and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (1 John 1:9).

  • The New Birth

    We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 2:20).

  • Daily Christian Life

    We believe that it is the will of God that we are sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).

  • Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

    We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matthew 28:19).  We believe in the commendation of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolical use of the bread and juice of the vine (1 Corinthians 11:24,25).

  • Baptism of the Holy Spirit

    We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is to provide the believer with power and that His incoming is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4).

  • The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit

    We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22).

  • Moderation

    We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism (Phil. 4:5).

  • Divine Healing

    We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16).

  • The Second Coming of Christ

    We believe that the Second Coming of Christ is personal and imminent (1 Thessalonians 4:16,17).

  • Church Relationship

    We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible church of Christ (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25).

  • Civil Government

    We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5).

  • Heaven

    We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).

  • The Final Judgment

    We believe that all shall stand some day before the Great White Throne (the unrighteous) and the Judgment Seat of Christ (righteous) of God and there receive eternal life or death (2 Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:12).

  • Hell

    We believe that hell is the price of eternal torment of all who reject Christ as the Savior (Revelation 20:10,15).

  • Evangelism

    We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church (James 5:20).

  • Tithes and Offerings

    We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7).
