What we believe according
to the Scripture.

Jesus Christ:

  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ.
    (John 10:30; John 1:1, 14; 2 Cor. 5:19)
  • We believe that the suffering and death of Jesus Christ was substitutionary for all mankind and is efficacious only to those who believe.
    (Isa.53:6; Heb. 2:9; 1 Peter2:24; 1 Peter 3:18; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 John 2:2)
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection and ascension of Christ and the Bodily resurrection of His saints.
    (Matt 28:1-7; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Cor. 15:42-58; 1 Thess. 4:13-18)


Holy Spirit:

  • We believe the Holy Spirit is the divine Administrator for Jesus Christ in His churches.
    (Luke 24:49; John 14:16,17; Acts 1:4,5,8; Acts 2:1-4)
  • We believe that miraculous spiritual manifestation gifts were done away with when the bible was completed. Faith, Hope, and Love are the vital abiding Spiritual Gifts.
    (1 Cor. chapters 12-14)


Human Beings:

  • We believe that Man was created in the image of God and lived in innocence until he fell by voluntary transgression from his sinless state, the result being that all mankind are sinners.
    (Gen. 1:26; Gen.3:6-24; Rom.5:12, 19)



  • We believe in the pre-millennial, personal, bodily return of Christ as the crowning event of the Gentile age. This event will include the resurrection of the righteous to eternal heaven, and the millennium will be followed by the resurrection of the unrighteous unto eternal punishment in the lake of fire and that the righteous shall enter into the heaven age.
    (John 14:1-6; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; 2 Thess. 2:8; Rev. 19; Rev. 20:4-6;
    Rev. 20:11-15; Rev. 21:8)



  • We believe that all who trust Jesus Christ for salvation are eternally secure in Him and shall not perish.
    (John 3:36; John 5:24; John 10:27-30; Rom.8:35-39; Heb. 10:39;
    1 Peter 1:5)
  • We believe that the depraved sinner is saved wholly by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and the requisites to regeneration are repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ;
    (Luke 13:3-5; John 3:16-18; Acts 20:21; Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8,9)
    and that the Holy Spirit convicts sinners, regenerates, seals, secures, and indwells every believer.
    (John 3:6; John 16:8, 9; Rom. 8:9-11; 1 Cor.6:19, 20; Eph. 4:30; Titus 3:5)
  • We believe that God deals with believers as His children, that He chastises the disobedient, and that He rewards the obedient.
    (Matt 16:27; Matt 25:14-23; John 1:12; Heb. 12:5-11; 2 John 8; Rev. 22:12)


God's Church:

  • We believe that Jesus Christ established His church during His ministry on earth and that is always a local, visible assembly of scripturally baptized believers in covenant relationship to carry out the Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ, and each church is an independent, self-governing body, and no other ecclesiastical body may exercise authority over it. We believe that Jesus Christ gave the Great Commission to the the New Testament churches only, and that He promised the perpetuity of His churches.
    (Matt, 4:18-22; Matt 16:18; Matt 28:19,20; Mark 1:14-20; John 1:35-51; Eph. 3:21)
  • We believe that all associations, fellowships, and committees are, and properly should be, servants of, and under control of the churches.
    (Matt 20:25-28)


Baptism & The Lord's Supper:

  • We believe that there are two pictorial ordinances in the Lord's churches: Baptism and the Lord's supper. Scriptural baptism is the immersion of penitent believers in water, administered by the authority of a New Testament church in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Lord's Supper is a memorial ordinance.
    (Matt 28:19,20; Acts 8:12,38; Rom. 6:4; 1 Cor. 5:11-13;
    1 Cor. 11:1,2,17-20,26)


Pastors & Deacons:

  • We believe that there are two divinely appointed offices in a church: pastors and deacons, to be filled by men whose qualifications are set forth in Titus and Timothy.



  • We believe in freedom of worship without interference from the government and affirm our belief in civil obedience, unless the laws and regulations of civil government run contrary to the Holy Scriptures.
    (Rom. 13:1-7; 1 Peter 2:13-15)
