We believe that the Holy Bible as originally written was verbally, plenarily inspired and the product of Spirit-controlled men; therefore, is truth without any admixture of error for its matter. We believe the Bible to be the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried. (II Timothy 3:16 & 17; II Peter 1:19-21)


We believe there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite Spirit, and the maker and Supreme Ruler of Heaven and earth; inexpressively glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (Exodus 20:2 & 3; I Corinthians 8:6; Revelation 4:11)


We believe that, as provided and purposed by God and as pre-announced in the prophecies of the Scriptures, the Eternal Son of God came into this world that He might manifest God to man, fulfill prophecy and become the Redeemer of a lost world. To this end He was born of a virgin, received a human body and a sinless human nature. We believe that He first came to Israel as her Messiah-King, was rejected of that nation and, according to the eternal councils of God, gave His life a ransom for all. We believe that He arose from the dead on the third day in the same body in which He suffered and died. We also believe that our Lord ascended bodily into Heaven, that He is now seated at the right hand of the Father and is our only Mediator, High Priest and Divine Advocate with the Father. We believe in the imminent, personal, physical and premillennial return of Christ, occurring in two phases: first, to complete the Church Age by rapturing all believers prior to the Tribulation and, second, at the end of the Great Tribulation when He shall return with His saints, at which time the nations shall be judged and the Millennial Kingdom with regathered Israel central and Christ as King will be ushered in. At the end of 1,000 years the judgment of the Great White Throne will take place, followed by the eternal peace of the righteous, and the eternal damnation of the wicked, Satan and his cohorts. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20:1-15; Romans 9-11; I Corinthians 15:15-58; John 1:1, 2; Luke 1:26-38)


We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature, that He was active in the creation, that in His relation to the unbelieving world He restrains the evil one until God’s purpose is fulfilled, that He convicts of sin, of righteousness, of judgment, that He bears witness to the Truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony, that He is the agent in the New Birth, that He seals, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies and helps the believer. (The gifts of tongues and healing were “sign-gifts” until the Scriptures were completed. The gifts ceased at that time.) (John 14:16,17,26; Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 1:13, 14; John 3:5,6; I Corinthians 13:8-13; 14:22)


We believe in the personality of Satan, that he is the unholy god of this age, and the author of all the powers of darkness, and is destined to the judgment of an eternal justice in the lake of fire. (Isaiah 14:12-16; Ezekiel 28:1-19; Matthew 4:1-3; II Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 20:10)


We believe that God created the heavens and the earth including all life, “each after its own kind”, by direct act, according to the Genesis account; and not by any process of evolution, and that man was created in the image and likeness of God. We believe this creative act was completed in six 24 hour days and on the seventh day God rested. (Genesis 1:11; Colossians 1:16-17; John 1:3)


We believe that man was created in innocence under the law of his Maker, but by voluntary transgression fell from his sinless and happy state in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners, not only by constraint but of choice, and, therefore, under just condemnation without defense or excuse. (Genesis 3:1-6, 24; Romans 1:18, 32; 5:10-19.


We believe that Jesus was begotten of the Holy Ghost in a miraculous manner, born of Mary, a virgin, as no other man was ever born or can ever be born of a woman, and that He is both the Son of God and God the Son. (Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18- 25; Luke 1:35; John 1:4)


We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace; through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God, Who by the appointment of the Father, freely took upon Himself our nature yet without sin, honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and by His death made a full and vicarious atonement for our sins; that His atonement consisted not in setting us an example by His death as a martyr, but was a voluntary substitution of Himself in the sinner’s place, the Just dying for the unjust; Christ the Lord, bearing our sin in His own body on the tree; that having risen from the dead, He is now enthroned in Heaven, and uniting in His wonderful person the tenderest sympathies with divine perfection, He is in every way qualified to be a suitable, a compassionate, and all-sufficient Savior. (Ephesians 2:8; Acts 15:11; Romans 3:24; John 3:16; Matthew 18:11; Philippians 2:7; Romans 3:25; I Corinthians 15:3; Hebrews 2:14; II Corinthians 5:21; Isaiah 53:4-7; 1 John 4:10)


We believe that all men are totally depraved without ability to come to God and are helplessly lost, but that God, in sovereign grace and apart from any consideration of foreseen human merit or response and in perfect consistency with human responsibility, chose some before the foundation of the world to be recipients of His grace in Christ. As the Gospel is preached to all the nations these elect ones are caused to hear it and their hearts are opened by the Holy Spirit, so that they freely and gladly receive Christ as their Savior, thus becoming children of God. (Genesis 6:5; Isaiah 64:6; Jeremiah 13:23, 17:9; John 6:44, 65; Ephesians 1:4-5, 2:8-10; Romans 9:16; II Thessalonians 2:13-14; I Corinthians 1:21; John 1:12-13; James 1:18; John 6:37, 39-40; Acts 13:48, 16:14; John 17:2-3, 11, 20; Romans 10:17)


We believe that the great gospel blessing which Christ secures to such as believe in Him is Justification: (a) That Justification includes the pardon of sin, and the gift of eternal life, on principles of righteousness; (b) That it is bestowed not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done; but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood, His righteousness is imputed to us. (Acts 13:39; Isaiah 53:11; Zechariah 13:1; Romans 5:1,9)


We believe that faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only condition of salvation. (Acts 16:31; Ephesians 2:8)


We believe in the unity of all true believers in the Church which is the Body of Christ, which was established on the Day of Pentecost; and that all believers from Pentecost to the Rapture, both Jews and Gentiles, are added to this Church by baptism of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the local Church is a congregation of immersed believers, associated by covenant of faith and fellowship of the Gospel; observing the ordinances of Christ; governed by His laws, and exercising the gifts, rights and privileges invested in them by His Word; that its officers are Pastors and Deacons whose qualifications, claims and duties are clearly defined in the Scriptures. We believe that the true mission of the Church is the faithful witnessing of Christ to all men as we have opportunity. We hold that the local Church has the absolute right of self-government, free from the interference of any hierarchy of individuals or organizations, that the one and only superintendent is Christ through the Holy Spirit; that it is scriptural for true Churches to cooperate with each other in contending for the faith and for the furtherance of the Gospel; that each local Church is the sole judge of the measure and method of its cooperation; on all matters of membership, of polity, of government, of discipline, of benevolence, the will of the local Church is final. (Acts 2:41, 42; 15:13-15; 20:17-28; I Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 1:23, 4:11, 5:23, 24; Colossians 1:18; I Timothy 3:17)


We believe that Christian Baptism is the single immersion of a believer in water to show forth in a solemn and beautiful emblem our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior, with its effect in our death to sin and resurrection to a new life; that it is pre-requisite to the privileges of a church relation. We believe that the Lord’s Supper is the commemoration of His death until He comes, and should be preceded always by solemn self-examination. (Acts 2:36 – 42; John 3:23; Romans 6:3 – 5; Matthew 3:16; Colossians 2:12; I Corinthians 11:24 – 28)


We believe that all that are truly born again are kept by God the Father for Jesus Christ. Those who are truly born again cannot lose their salvation. Those who have put their fiath in Christ as Lord and Savior are eternally secure and cannot lose their salvation. (Philipians 1:6; John 10:28-29; Romans 8:35-39; Jude 1)


We believe that there is a radical and essential difference between the righteous and the wicked; that such only as through faith are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and sanctified by the Spirit of our God, are truly righteous in His esteem; while all such as continue in impenitence and unbelief are in His sight wicked, and under the curse; and this distinction holds among men both in and after death, in the everlasting happiness of the saved and the everlasting conscious suffering of the lost. (Proverbs 14:32; Malachi 3:18; Genesis 18:23; Matthew 25:24-41; John 8:21; Romans 6:17,18,23; 7:6; I John 5:19)


We believe that civil government is of divine appointment for the interests and good order of human society; that government leaders are to be prayed for, conscientiously honored, and obeyed; except in things opposed to the will of the Lord Jesus Christ who is the only Lord of the conscience, and the coming Prince of the kings of the earth. (Exodus 18:21, 22; II Samuel 23:3; Daniel 3:17,18; Matthew 22:21; Acts 5:20, 4:19, 20; Romans 13:1-7)


1. We believe the home was the first institution God provided for man, and that marriage is a sacred relationship and honorable for all. Marriage is used as an emblem of the union of Christ and His church. “What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder”. (Mark 10:9; Genesis 2:18-24; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Corinthians 7:2; Ephesians 5:21-23)

2. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex. We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one’s gender by surgery or appearance. (Genesis 2:24; 19:5; 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; 1 Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 12:4)


1. We believe in the Bodily Resurrection of Christ. (Matthew 28:6-7; Luke 24:39; John 20:27; 1 Corinthians 15:4; Mark 16:6; Luke 24:2 – 6)

2. We believe in the bodily ascension of Christ. (Acts 1:9-11; Luke 24:51; Mark 16:19; Revelation 3:21; Hebrews 12:2)

3. We believe in the High Priesthood of Christ. (Hebrews 2:17; 5:9-10; 8:6; I Timothy 2:5; 1 John 2:1)

4. The Return of Jesus Christ: We believe in the imminent, bodily, personal premillennial return of Christ; that he will come before the seven year tribulation period to catch away His church, coming only into the air; and that He will come with His Church at the close of the tribulation to judge the living nations and to set up His kingdom on earth. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 19:11-21; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; James 5:8; Hebrews 9:28)

5. The Resurrection of the Righteous Dead and Unbelievers: We believe in the resurrection of the bodies of the dead; that the believers, asleep in Jesus, will be raised at the coming of Christ for His Church and will be caught up with transformed living saints to meet the Lord in the air; and that the wicked dead will be raised at the close of the millennial kingdom and stand in their bodies at the Great White Throne of judgment to receive their final doom. (John 5:21-30; I Thessalonians 4:1-16; Revelation 7:9-17; 20:11-15; 1 Corinthians 15: 42-44, 51-55; Philippians 3:20-21 I Thessalonians 4:13-18)

6. The Throne of David: We believe that Christ is the rightful heir of the throne of David and that at His second coming to earth, He will claim it as the rightful King of the nation Israel. (Luke 1:32; Isaiah 9:6-7; Acts 2:29-30)

7. The Millennial Reign: We believe that the reign of Christ will begin with a literal thousand year reign on this earth in which Jesus Christ will hold absolute rule over all men. It will lead into His everlasting reign in the new heavens and new earth. (I Corinthians 15:25; Isaiah 32:1; 11:4-5; Psalm 72:8; Revelation 20:6,14)
