Our Beliefs

While we believe in the basic cardinal doctrines of the Christian faith such as:

  • Inerrancy of Scripture
  • The Virgin Birth
  • The Blood Atonement of Jesus Christ
  • The Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ
  • The Bodily, Visible, Second Coming of Jesus Christ

We hold these truths to be distinctive's of Baptists and churches of like faith and order:


I. THE DEITY AND LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God and the second part of the triune Godhead. (Philippians 2:5-11)


II. THE ABSOLUTE NECESSITY OF THE NEW BIRTH

The new birth (salvation) redeems a soul from hell, initiates a personal relationship with God, and precedes the indwelling spirit and God's provisions for His children. (John 3:3,5,7)


III. SALVATION BY FAITH ALONE

There is nothing an individual contributes to his salvation except to receive by faith the gift of salvation. (Ephesians 2:8-9)


IV. PRIESTHOOD, EQUALITY AND COMPETENCY OF ALL BELIEVERS

Every child of God has direct access to God through prayer and is directly responsible to God for his actions. (Revelation 1:5-6)


V. THE SALVATION PRESERVATION OF ALL BELIEVERS

Once received, there is nothing that can rescind the gift of salvation. (I Peter 1:5; Romans 8:28-39)


VI. THE BIBLE: THE SOLE AUTHORITY FOR FAITH AND PRACTICE

The Bible is the complete, inerrant, infallible word of God. (II Timothy 3:16 -17)


VII. AUTONOMY AND THEOCRACY OF THE LOCAL CHURCH

The head of the church is Christ and the local church is independent of any outside control. (Matthew 18:15-17; Acts 13:1-3; Acts 15:1-35; I Corinthians 5:1-13; II Corinthians 8, 9)


VII. BELIEVER'S BAPTISM BY IMMERSION ONLY

Baptism is an ordinance of the Church and is administered by immersion following a salvation experience. Baptism does not bring salvation but symbolizes the meaning of salvation. (It is a picture of the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ) (Romans 6:4)


IX. SYMBOLISM OF THE LORD'S SUPPER

The Lord's Supper is the second ordinance of the church. Its practice and elements symbolize the body and blood of Jesus Christ. (I Corinthians 11:23 -26)


X. SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE

The state will not exercise any control over the church nor will the church assert any legislative control over government. (Matthew 22:15 -22)


XI. EVANGELISM OF THE WORLD THE SUPREME TASK OF THE CHURCH

It is the responsibility of every Christian and church to spread the gospel of Christ. (Matthew 28:19-20)
