The Bible, both Old and New Testament, to be the only infallible and written Word of God.
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that He is omniscient, omnipresent, and all powerful.
The deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in his vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in his bodily resurrection, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead.
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity whose purpose in the redemption of man is to convict men of sin, regenerate the repentant believer, guide the believer into all truth, indwell and give gifts to believers as He wills that they may minister as Christ would to men. We believe that the manifestations of the Holy Spirit recorded in I Corinthians 12 shall operate in the present day church.
All are born with a nature to sin and must be “born again” to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
Salvation is a free gift from God. We believe that the terms of salvation are repentance toward God for sin, and a personal, heartfelt faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, which results in regeneration of the person. This salvation is entirely by grace of our Lord and not of works. Works are excluded except as fruit of salvation.
Two ordinances of the Church are Water Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
Water Baptism: Immersion in water in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost. A symbol of identification with Jesus Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.
Lord’s Supper: A memorial of the death, resurrection, and Second Coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.Heaven and Hell
Scripture clearly sets forth the doctrines of eternal punishment for the lost and eternal bliss and service for the saved – Hell for the unsaved and Heaven for the saved.
God has used doctors, medicines, and other material means for healing; but divine healing was also provided in Atonement and may be appropriated by laying on of hands by elders, by believers, or by a direct act of receiving this provision by faith.
Each believer is a priest of the Lord and has direct access to the Father through the Lord Jesus Christ. Each person must believe for himself, be baptized for himself, obey for himself, and answer to his Creator for himself.
The New Testament Church should be apostolic in nature and is governed by delegated authorities. We are structured with the following roles: Pastor, Elders, and Trustees.
