• The Word of God

    We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:3,4, 19-21; Matthew 5:18)

  • The Trinity

    We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence, and redemption.(Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

  • God, the Father

    We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of all people, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (John 4:24; Revelation 4:8-11; Ephesians 2: 1-7)

  • Jesus Christ

    We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His Substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and imminent personal visible return to earth. (John 1:1, 14, 18; Luke 1:30-35; Acts 2: 22-24, 32-41; II Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 7:23-25; 9:23-28)

  • The Holy Spirit

    We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide. (John 15:26-27; 16:7-15; John 3:5-8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-13)

  • Regeneration

    We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. (John 3:18-21; Eph. 2:8-10; Luke 5:32; Acts 11:18; 20:21; Hebrews 6:1; II Peter 3:9)

  • The Church

    We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized following a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church, the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world. (Ephesians 1:22-23; 4: 1-6; Acts 1:8, 2:41-47; Hebrews 10:25)

  • Christian Conduct

    We believe that all Christians should live for the glory of God and the well-being of others; that their conduct should be blameless before the world; that they should be faithful stewards of their possessions; and that they should seek to realize for themselves and others the full stature of maturity in Christ. (Galatians 5:16-26; Ephesians 4:13-15)

  • The Ordinances

    We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water into the name of the triune God. We believe that the Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ in remembrance of His death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 8:29-39; I Corinthians 11:23-32)

  • Religious Liberty

    We believe that every human being has direct relations with God, and is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith; that each church is independent and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, church and state must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from dictation or patronage of the other. (Galatians 3:26-29; 5:16-25; Romans 13:1-7; 14:1-5; Hebrews 4:14-16; 13:7,8, 15-17; Acts 4:19,20; 5:27-42)

  • Church Cooperation

    We believe that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another in a denomination organization. Such an organization, whether a regional or district conference, exists and functions by the will of the churches. Cooperation in a conference is voluntary and may be terminated at any time. Churches may likewise cooperate with interdenominational fellowships on a voluntary independent basis. (Acts 13:1-4; 15:36-41; 1 Corinthians 16:12; 2 Corinthians 8:1-6)

  • The Last Things

    We believe in the imminent personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal blessedness of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; II Thessalonians 1:6-10; John 5:24-30; Revelations 20)

  • Home and Family

    We believe that God ordained marriage as a sacred union between a man and a woman. We believe that the home is the God-ordained place for training children in Godliness, that children are to obey their parents and that relationships in the home are to reflect God's relationship with His people. (Genesis 2:24; Deuteronomy 11:19; 1 Corinthians 7:2; Ephesians 6:4; Colossians 3:20,21)
