What We Believe

The One True and Living God

We believe that there is one, and only one, true and living God. We believe that God is from everlasting to everlasting in three persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.

The Bible, the Word of God

We believe that the Bible, the Word of God, both the Old and New Testament was written by holy men of God under the divine inspiration of God Himself. We believe that the Bible is without error and is preserved for eternity.

Sinful Man

We believe that man was created by God in the holy and righteous image of God. We believe that Eve, being deceived by Satan, transgressed God’s law and Adam willingly sinned against God. We believe that every child is born with a sinful nature and is in need of God’s mercy and grace for the forgiveness of their sins.

Salvation by Grace through Faith

We believe that God and only God can grant forgiveness of sins and save a soul from eternal damnation in a lake of fire. We believe that God so loved the world that He sent Jesus, His only begotten Son, to die for possible reconciliation to Himself. We believe that Jesus willingly laid down His life and shed His blood for the forgiveness of the sins of the whole world.

We believe that salvation is free and all one must do to be saved is to call and believe on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that salvation is by grace through faith and that once a person is saved, this salvation is once and for all eternity. We believe that salvation cannot be lost, stolen or forfeited.

We believe that to go to Heaven, one must come through Jesus Christ. We do not believe that church attendance or baptism or any other work of man will get anyone to Heaven.

The Ordinances Given to the Church

We believe in the two ordinances of the Church: Baptism and Communion (the Lord’s Supper):

We believe that the true Christian baptism is the total immersion in water, done so in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. However, we do not believe that baptism is a condition for salvation but only a symbol of a person’s faith and belief in Jesus Christ.

We believe that Communion, the Lord’s Supper, is to be partaken of by Christians of like faith. The use of bread and grape juice commemorates the body and blood of Christ and is to be preceded by a solemn spiritual self-examination.
