We believe that the Bible is God’s final & complete revelation to man & that He used holy, inspired men of God to give us His written Word. We also believe that God has perfectly preserved His revelation to the English speaking world in the King James Version of the Bible.
2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:19-21; Psa. 119:89
We believe there is only one true & living God who has revealed Himself in three Persons of the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit. This Godhead is equal in essence, yet different in personality.
Gen. 1:1,26; 1 Corin. 8:5-6
We believe Jesus to be both the Son of God and God the Son who live as sinless life in order to die a subsitutionary death for the sins of the world.
We believe in the literal and supernatural virgin birth of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit & is both the Son of God & God the Son.
We believe that Jesus Christ rose from the grave literally and bodily before ascending back to Heaven. We believe that He will also return rapture all believers in the same manner.
Matt. 28:5,6; Lk. 1:26-35; Jn. 10:30, 14:1-3; 1 Corin. 15:3-8; 2 Corin. 5:20; Heb. 4:15
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Godhead. He does this by convicting the unbeliever of sin, righteousness and judgment. He also seals, guides, witnesses & sanctifies the believer.
Jn. 14:26; 15:26; Rom. 8:16
We believe Satan was once a holy angelic being who fell due to his pride. He tries to blind & deceive the heart of men from God, & also tempts and accuses the believer as he lives for God.
Isa. 14:12-15; 1 Pet. 5:8
We believe that a Baptist church is a local assembly of baptized believers associated by a covenant of faith to fulfill the Great Commission state for us in Matthew 28:18-20. We believe that God gave two specific ordinances of baptism by immersion & the observance of the Lord’s Supper to the Local Church.
Acts 2:41,42; 1 Corin. 11:24-25; 12:12-20
We believe that the world was created in a literal six day period as described in the Genesis account. We believe that mankind was made in the image of God, and after His own likeness & not evolved.
Gen. 1:1-2:1; Col. 1:16-17
We believe that man was created in a pure & innocent state, but willfully choose to transgress the law of God. Due to the first man, Adam’s, transgression. All men born since are born with a sin nature.
Gen. 3:1-6; Ezek. 18:19-20; Eph. 2:1-3
We believe that God’s redemptive grace of forgiveness & eternal life is a free gift through the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus Christ. This redemptive grace forgives us of all our sins (past, present & future).
We believe that true salvation requires biblical repentance. Such repentance is the working of the Holy Spirit convicting of sin and a need for a Savior.
True Salvation is for whosoever will, by faith, confess with their mouth and believe in their heart that Jesus Christ is Lord & Savior. Once someone is saved, they are justified before God. Such justification includes the pardon of sin & the imputation of the righteousness of Christ.
Eph. 2:8,9; Rom. 6:23; 10:9-10,13
