Statement of Faith

Bible
We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God; that the sixty-six Books, as originally written, comprising the Old and New Testaments were inspired by the Spirit of God (and therefore were entirely free from error); that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice and the true basis of Christian union.

God
We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal and distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Christ
We in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ and His humanity, in His eternal existence with the Father in pre-incarnate glory, in His virgin birth, sinless life, His death as a redemption for sin, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, He is the only mediator between man and God, and His personal return.

The Holy Spirit
We believe in the absolute and essential deity and personality of the Holy Spirit Who convinces of sin, of righteousness and judgment; Who regenerates, sanctifies, illuminates, empowers  and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ.

Satan
We believe that Satan exists as an evil being, the originator of sin, the arch-enemy of God and man.

Man
We believe that man was divinely created in the image of God; that he sinned, becoming guilty before God, resulting in total depravity, thereby incurring physical and spiritual death.

Salvation
We believe that salvation is by the sovereign, electing grace of God; that by the appointment of the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a vicarious, expiatory and propitiatory death; that justification is by faith alone in the all sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and that those whom God had effectually called shall be divinely preserved and finally perfected in the image of the Lord.

Future Things
We believe in the personal, bodily and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust; in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and in the judgment and conscious, eternal punishment of the wicked.

The Local Church
We believe that a church is a company of immersed believers, called out from the world, separated unto the Lord Jesus, voluntarily associated for the ministry of the Word, the mutual edification of its members, the propagation of the faith and the observance of the ordinances. We believe it is a sovereign, independent body, exercising its own divinely awarded gifts, precepts and privileges under the Lordship of Christ, the Great Head of the church. We further believe that the spiritual leadership of the church is invested in its principal officers: pastors and deacons.

Ordinances
We believe that there are only two ordinances for the church regularly observed in the New Testament in the following order:

1 Baptism which is the immersion of the believer in water, whereby they obey Christ’s command and sets forth their identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection,

2 The Lord’s Supper which is the memorial wherein the believer partakes of the two elements, bread and wine, which symbolize the Lord’s body and shed blood, proclaiming His death until He comes.

The Church and State
We believe in the entire separation of church and state.

Religious Liberty
We believe in religious liberty; that every man has the right to practice and propagate his beliefs.

The Lord’s Day
We believe that the first day of the week is the Lord’s day and that, in a special sense, it is the divinely appointed day for worship and spiritual exercise.

Civil Government
We believe that civil government is of divine appointment for the interest and good order of society; that magistrates are to be prayed for, conscientiously honoured and obeyed, except only in the things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the only Lord of the conscience and Prince of the kings of the earth.

Leadership

Christ is the head of the church and He can be reached by knee mail.
