What We Believe

The Bible, the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, and are the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.

We believe in the Sufficiency of Scripture
We believe that the Bible is God’s word.  More importantly, we believe that it is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice.  Thus, we are constantly reforming ourselves in view of God’s word (Deuteronomy 4:2; 12:32; Proverbs 30:6; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 22:19).

We Practice Systematic Exposition
Because we believe in the inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture, we practice systematic exposition in our preaching ministry.  That means we preach verse-by-verse through sections of the Bible in order to faithfully proclaim ‘the whole council of God’ to his people.

We are Committed to Baptism of Believers by Immersion
This is the essence of what it means to be a ‘Baptist’ church.  While we respect Christians from other orthodox traditions, we will only receive members who have experienced ‘Believer’s Baptism’ by immersion.  Moreover, we consider baptism necessary to all other privileges of membership.

God -There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ - Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the complete and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.

The Holy Spirit - The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age, to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.

In holiness to be God’s standard of living for His people;
In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart;
In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that this is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost;
In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ, through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost;

Man - Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

Salvation - The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.

Sin - That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for the forgiveness of sins.

The Return of Jesus Christ - The pre-millennial, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ: First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air; Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years; and lastly, eternal life for the righteous and eternal punishment for the wicked.

Future Events - There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.

The Church - The true Church is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, having been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.

Baptism and Communion - Water baptism by immersion by all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son(Jesus), and of the Holy Ghost in the name of Jesus; is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life. The Lord's Supper is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; all true believers and only believers should share in it.
