Statement of Faith
WE BELIEVE that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are given by inspiration of God and are without error in the original writings and are the only infallible rule of faith and practice. (2 Tim. 3:16,17; 1 Th. 2:13; 2 Pet. 1:19-21)

WE BELIEVE in one God--the Creator and Ruler of the Universe, existing in a divine and incomprehensible Trinity--the Father; the Son, Jesus Christ; and the Holy Spirit--each possessing divine perfection. (2 Cor. 13:14; Mt. 28:19; Jn. 14:25, 15:26; 1 Pet. 1:2)

WE BELIEVE that our first parents were created holy and upright, that they fell from this condition; and that in consequence the whole human race is by nature dead in trespasses and sins. (Rom. 5:12; Gen. 1:27,28,31; Eccl. 7:29; Eph. 2:1-5)

WE BELIEVE in the incarnation, death, and bodily resurrection of the Son of God; and that salvation is attained only through repentance and faith in Him. (Jn. 1:1-14; 1 Cor. 15:3,4; Acts 4:10-12)

WE BELIEVE in the necessity of the new birth which is a radical change of heart and that this is effected through the truth, by the agency of the Holy Spirit. (Jn. 3:3; 1 Pet. 1:23; Ti. 3:5)

WE BELIEVE that the Christian is called with a holy calling to walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Because he has become a new creation in Christ Jesus and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, he must be in constant subjection to Christ and His commandments by the power of the Holy Spirit. (2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 5:22,23; Jn. 15:10)

WE BELIEVE that only those should be admitted to membership in the visible church who have experienced a change of heart through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Jn. 3:5; 1 Cor. 5:6)

WE BELIEVE the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper together with the observance of the Lord's Day are of perpetual obligation in the church. Recognizing immersion as the only scriptural mode. (Mt. 28:19; 1 Cor. 11:24-26; Ex. 31:16,17 with Mt. 5:17,18)

WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of the dead and future judgments from which the righteous go away into everlasting life and the wicked into everlasting punishment. (Dan. 12:2; Mt. 25:31-46; Rev. 20:11-15,21,26,27)

WE BELIEVE in the personal, bodily return of Christ in power at the Rapture and His coming in great glory as King of Kings and Lord of Lords for a thousand years and in Christ's ultimate complete triumph and the establishment of "new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness." (Acts 1:11; 2 Pet. 3:10-13)
