We accept the Scriptures as our only authority in
matters of faith and practice, and the interpretation of Biblical
doctrine leads us to believe:
- The Scriptures of the Old & New Testament as being verbally
inspired by God and inerrant and infallible in the original
writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority.
- In one God eternally existing in one essence, yet co-equal
persons, the Trinity: Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
- That Jesus Christ was begotten by God, conceived by the Holy
Spirit and born to the virgin Mary.
- In the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, who
convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. He is the
life of the believer and He empowers the preaching and teaching of
- That mankind was created in the image of God, sinned, and
thereby incurred not only physical death, but spiritual death, which
is separation from God, and that human beings are born with a sinful
- 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 basis of His shed
- In the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, His
ascension into heaven, and His present life there as High Priest and
Advocate for us.
- In the blessed hope, which is the personal, visible and imminent
return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
- That all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born
again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God and
heirs of eternal life.
- In the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the
everlasting conscious suffering of the lost in hell, and the
fellowship of the saved in heaven.
- In the existence of a personal devil, who is still working in
the world to destroy the souls of men, and that he and all his
angels and all who do not receive Christ as their personal Savior
will eternally perish in the lake of fire.
- In the Church, whose mission it is to preach the Scriptures to
all the world, all of its endeavors being guided by multiple
leadership and supported by the wise stewardship of Godís people.
- That the ordinances of the Church, given by the Lord, are
Baptism and the Lordís Table (Communion).
