Statement of Faith
We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Old and New Testament Scriptures as holy men of God controlled by the Holy Spirit wrote, and are inerrant, supreme, and the final standard in all matters of doctrine and life.
We believe in one, true, eternal God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ’s deity and humanity, His conception by the Holy Spirit, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His bodily resurrection, His rapturing of the saved, and His return with great power and glory.
We believe that man was created by God (not evolved) a righteous, free, moral being; that he sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of physical and spiritual death for himself and also the entire human race, causing all men to be born with a sinful nature.
We believe that Jesus Christ, by His substitutionary death on the cross, made salvation possible for all who will receive Him as their only Savior; that these who are regenerated by the Holy Spirit will never perish; and that it is utterly impossible for anyone to be saved except by Jesus Christ.
We believe that the family of God is composed of all believers; that the local church is a congregation of baptized believers in a particular locality associated for worship, fellowship, teaching of God’s Word, service and the observance of the ordinances; that this church is independent and that the only authority over it is that of Christ and the Word of God.
We believe that every Christian should be baptized (immersed) in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This outward act is symbolic of the inward work of regeneration and only the baptism of a regenerated individual is real.
We believe in the observance of the Lord’s Supper as the symbol of continual, spiritual fellowship with our Savior; that it is for believers only, and that by doing this we remember His death until He comes.
We believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the church and righteousness at the glorious appearing of Christ, in the resurrection of the dead, and in the eternal blessedness of the saved and eternal conscious suffering of the unsaved.
