BELIEFS

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God, that the 66 books of the Bible, as originally written were verbally inspired by the Spirit of God and were entirely free from error. The Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice and the true basis of Christian union.
 
GOD
We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, existing in three equal Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
 
JESUS CHRIST
We believe in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ, in His eternal existence, His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry & personal return.
 
SATAN
We believe that Satan exists as an evil personality, the originator of sin, & the arch enemy of God & humanity.
 
PEOPLE
We believe that humanity was created by God in the image of God; that they sinned, becoming guilty before God, resulting in total depravity, thereby incurring physical & spiritual death.
 
SALVATION
We believe that salvation is by the sovereign, electing grace of God. That by the appointment of the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a substitutionary death with His shed blood on our behalf. That salvation is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus & that by receiving the free gift of salvation, that person shall be divinely preserved and finally perfected in the image of the Lord.
 
ORDINANCES
We believe there are two ordinances of the church, Baptism & the Lord’s Supper, as regularly observed in the New Testament.
