We Believe

  • We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God without error as originally written and that they are supreme and final authority in faith and life.

  • We believe in one God, eternal, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent manifested in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary and that He is true God and true man.

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person.

  • We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and incurred not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God.  We believe in total depravity.

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice and rose again for our justification.  We are saved by grace through faith wholly apart from human merit and works.  We believe in the security of the believer.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ organized a church while here on earth during His personal ministry and that He gave that church a commission.

  • We believe that there are two church ordinances: baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

  • We believe that the church is local, visible, body of baptized believers covenanted together for worship and fellowship.

  • We believe in the pre-millennial second coming of Christ.

  • We believe that Heaven is a real place and that Hell is a real place.
