Doctrinal Statement

  1. We believe that the Bible is God's Word, that it was written by men Divinely inspired and that it is the supreme infallible authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
    ( II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:18-19 )

  2. We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all that come to Him through Jesus Christ. ( Isaiah 45:21-22; John 1:1-13 )

  3. We believe in Jesus Christ, the eternal and only begotten Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, of virgin birth, sinless in His life, making atonement for the sins of the world by His death. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension and visible, pre-millennial return to the world according to His promise.
    ( I Timothy 3:16; Acts 4:12;Revelation 20:4 )

  4. We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from God to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and comfort those who believe in Jesus Christ. ( John 15:26; Ephesians 1:13; John 16:7-8 )

  5. We believe that all men by nature and by choice are sinners but that "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." We believe therefore, that those who accept Christ as Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God's presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
    ( John 3:14-16; Romans 6:23; II Peter 1:3-4 )

  6. We believe in the church - a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and of which all regenerated people are members. We believe that a local church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized and associated for worship, work and fellowship. ( Colossians 1:18; Acts 2:41-47; Ephesians 4:11-16 )

  7. We believe that to the local church has been committed, for perpetual observance, the ordinances of baptism of believers by immersion and the Lord's Supper, and that God has laid upon these churches the task of proclaiming to a lost world the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior, and the enthroning of Him as Lord and Master. We believe that all human betterment and social improvements are the inevitable by-products of such a Gospel.
    ( Matthew 28:19-20; Matthew 3:6, 13-17; I Corinthians 11:23-29; Acts 8:36-38 )

  8. We believe that every human being is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith; that this church independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other. ( Romans 13:1-7; I Timothy 2:1-2 )

  9. We believe that the first day of the week is to be served as the Lord's Day.
    ( Acts 20:7; I Corinthians 16:1-2 )
