What we Believe
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. That they are able to make wise unto salvation and are the final authority in faith and life.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and hereby incurred, not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God, and that every human being is born with a sinful nature; therefore, we believe that for salvation of all men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe 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 ground of His shed blood.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe that individual Christians are duty bound to bear constant and consistent witness by word, character and deed to Jesus Christ and His power to save.
We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ as a living, spiritual body of which our Lord Himself is the Head and consisting of all regenerated people.
We believe in the observance of the Lord’s Day as a day of holy rest and worship; in the ministry of the Word and in the two sacraments which Christ has appointed for His Church: Baptism, to be administered to persons having reached the age of accountability, as a sign of cleansing from within, of union to Christ, and of the impartation of the Holy Spirit; and the Lord’s Supper as a symbol of His atoning death.
We believe in and encourage the administering of dedication of children under the age of accountability.
