Our Beliefs

  1. In the infallible, verbal inspiration of the whole Bible, which is our only and complete rule of faith and practice: II Timothy 3:16-17
  2. In the Triune God, the Trinity, Matthew 28:19
  3. In the Genesis account of creation; Genesis 1:1-2:25
  4. In the total depravity of man, Romans 3:23. 5:12, 6:23
  5. In 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
  6. That salvation is wholly by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; Ephesians 2:8-9; and that all believers are preserved eternally; 1 Peter 1:5, John 10:27-30
  7. In the bodily resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, and the bodily resurrection of His saints: 1 Corinthians Chapter 15; the second coming of Jesus Christ, personal and bodily, as the crowning event of this Gentile age; Acts 1:11; to set up His Kingdom on earth and to rule upon earth 1,000 years; Revelation 20:6
  8. In the Bible doctrine of eternal punishment in hell for those who reject Jesus Christ as Savior; Matthew 25:46, Luke 16:19-31
  9. That a scriptural Church is a visible assembly of baptized believers, covenanted together under New Testament law for the purpose of carrying out the Great Commission, with an unbroken history from the personal ministry of Jesus Christ on earth to this present day; Matthew 28;18-20
  10. In what true Baptists have ever held: The Great Commission was given to the New Testament churches only; in kingdom activities, the local assembly is the only unit in associated work; each church has equal authority; and the churches should meet their responsibilities according to their several abilities; Acts 1:8, Ephesians 3:21
  11. That all cooperating bodies, should be under complete control of the local churches; Matthew 20:25-28
  12. That scriptural baptism is by immersion of believer, administered by a local New Testament church; the Lord’s Supper is a memorial ordinance, restricted to faithful local church members: 1 Peter 3:21, Romans 6:1-10, I Corinthians 11:17-34
