The Holy Scriptures
We believe that the Holy Scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments were verbally inspired of God, inerrant in the original writings, and are the supreme and final authority in faith and life. See Galatians 1:11; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21.
We believe in one triune God, eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. See Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 48:16; John 4:24.
The Person and Work of Jesus Christ
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Incarnate God, co-eternal and co-equal with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His return in power and glory. See John 1:1, 14, 18; Matthew 16:16; Acts 1:11; Revelation 1:7.
The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit
We believe in the personality of the Holy Spirit and that His ministry is to reveal Jesus Christ to men, to convict of sin, to regenerate repentant sinners, and to sanctify the lives of the redeemed by His presence and power. See John 15:26; 16:6-9; 16:13; Titus 3:5-6; 2 Thessalonians 2:13.
We believe that Satan is a person, the unholy deceiver of this age, the author of all sin and is destined by God’s judgement to be cast into the lake of fire for eternity. See Job 6-7; 2 Corinthians 4:4; John 8:44; Revelation 20:10.
Man and the Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but by willful transgression became sinful and is justly under the condemnation and wrath of the almighty God. See Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:1-3.
The Way of Salvation
We believe that the only salvation from guilt and condemnation of sin is through faith in the righteousness and atoning sacrifice of the Lord Jesus. This salvation is the free gift of God’s love and grace, extended to all repentant sinners who believe in the blood shed and bodily resurrection of Christ. These are born again of the Spirit of God to a new life of righteousness. See Acts 16:31; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 10:9-10, 13.
The Eternal Destiny of Man
We believe that there is an essential difference between the saved and the lost. The saved (believers in Christ for salvation) are eternally secure and shall be resurrected unto life everlasting to enjoy God’s presence in heaven. The lost (those who have rejected Christ) shall be resurrected unto damnation to be tormented forever in hell. See John 3:36; 5:28-29.
The Church and Her Mission
We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is composed solely of those who have been redeemed and washed in His blood, and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. They are saved to serve. We believe the mission of the church is the faithful witnessing to mankind of salvation and eternal life through Christ, through spoken word and by living a daily life which exalts the Lord Jesus Christ. See Matthew 5:16; 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; 10:42-43.
The Ordinances of the Church
We believe that Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the only scriptural ordinances of the Church and that both were initiated by Jesus Christ.
We believe that Baptism is the immersion of the believer in water, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, symbolizing the essential facts in redemption – the death, the burial and the resurrection to the newness of life. See Matthew 3:13-17; Romans 6:3-5.
We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a memorial service in which the elements symbolize the broken body and the shed blood of Christ at Calvary and is to be partaken of after solemn self-examination, at regular intervals, by all members of the Church. See Matthew 26:26-28; 1 Cor. 11:23-29.
The Lord’s Day
We believe the first day of the week is the Lord’s Day. On this day, attendance at worship services of the congregation, the ministry of the Word of God, the practice of biblical giving, and other spiritual activities should be emphasized. See Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2; Hebrews 10:25.
The Return of Christ
We believe in the personal, bodily, imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ in His glory. See 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:50-55; Acts 1:11; Titus 2:13.
