What we believe based on what the Bible teaches. Please take the time to look up the scripture referenced with what we believe.
We believe in the Holy Scripture, accepting fully the writings of the Old and New Testaments in the original as the inerrant, verbally inspired Word of God, infallible in all of its parts, and the only authoritative rule of faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:19-21) We use the King James Version only.
We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Luke 3:21,22; Matthew 28:18-20)
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. (Matthew 1:18-25)
We believe in salvation by grace through faith; that salvation is the free gift of God, not by any virtue or works of man, but received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; that all true believers possess the gift of eternal life, a perfect righteousness, sonship in the family of God, and the Divine guarantee that they shall never perish. (Ephesians 2:4-20; Romans 8:35-39; John 10:27-30)
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. (Hebrews 9:11-22; I Peter 1:18-20; I Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:14)
We believe that a New Testament Church is an organized body of born again believers baptized by a New Testament Church, practicing Scriptural ordinances and actively engaged in fulfilling the Great Commission. (Ephesians 5:23-27; Matthew 28:18-20)
We believe that the two Scriptural ordinances given to the local church are baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper; that baptism should be administered to believers only as a symbol of their belief in the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and as a testimony to the world of their identification with His death, burial, and resurrection; and that the Lord's Supper should be partaken of by obedient Christians only, to show forth His death, till He comes. (Matthew 28:18-20; I Corinthians 11:23-30)
