Short Doctrinal Statement

We believe in and teach:

  1. The verbal inspiration and authority of the Bible, and that it reveals God the Father, the fall of man, God’s clear plan of salvation, and His plan and purpose in the past, present, and future eternity.

  2. The Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

  3. The Deity, Virgin Birth, and the Bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

  4. Eternal salvation by grace. That Faith and Repentance are the only conditions to Salvation.

  5. The justification of people through faith alone, and that we are judged righteous before God only through the merit of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

  6. The unending and conscious reward for the saved, and the everlasting, continuous, and conscious punishment of the lost in a literal Hell.

  7. The visible, personal, and victorious return of our Lord.

  8. The present New Testament Church, as a baptized, local body of believers, who have covenanted together to make disciples, baptize, and teach Christian principles.

  9. Two Christian ordinances being: The baptism of believers by immersion in water, by the authority of the local church, to show the death, burial, and resurrection to new life of the believer and his commitment to follow the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Lord’s Supper as the proclamation and commemoration of His death until He returns.

  10. The Biblical record as stated in Genesis, including the six day creation of the universe and everything in it, Adam and Eve as the progenitor of all human life, the literal Fall and its resultant curse on creation, and the worldwide Flood and its cataclysmic effect.

  11. The literal existence of Satan, as an evil and powerful adversary, who acts as personal tempter and accuser, and in his current and future defeat at the hands of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
