Statement of Faith
We Believe in:
► The infallible verbal inspiration of the whole Bible. (II Timothy 3:16, 17)
► The Triune God. (Matthew 28:19)
► The Genesis account of Creation (Genesis 1)
► The Virgin birth of Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:20)
► The Deity of Jesus Christ (John 10:30)
► The vicarious sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 2:9); that salvation is wholly by grace through faith in Christ (Ephesians 2:8); and that all believers are preserved eternally (I Peter 1:5, John 10:27-30).
► The bodily resurrection and ascension of Jesus and the bodily resurrection of his saints (I Corinthians 15); the second coming of Jesus Christ, personally and bodily, as the crowing event of the Gentile Age (Acts 1:11) to set up His kingdom on earth and to rule upon the earth one thousand years (Revelations 20:6)
► The Bible doctrine of eternal punishment of the finally impenitent (Matthew 25:46)
► A Scriptural church as a visible assembly of baptized believers, covenanted together under New Testament principles.
► That the Great Commission was given to the churches only; that in kingdom activities the church is the only unit in associated work; that each church should exercise equal authority; and that the churches should meet their responsibilities according to their several abilities.
► All cooperating bodies, such as associations, conventions, boards, committees, etc., are and properly should be servants of the churches (Matthew 20:25-28).
► Scriptural Baptism is immersion of believers, administered by New Testament church; the Lord's Supper is a memorial ordinance, restricted to those saved by Grace.
