The Holy Scriptures

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God: true, immutable, steadfast, and unchangeable (Timothy 3:16,17)

Repentance and Acceptance

We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ,
we are justified before God (I John 1:9; Rom. 5:1,2; Rom. 8:1; Luke 1:77-79; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20)

The Lord's Supper

We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolic use of
the bread and juice of the vine (I Corinthians 11:24, 25; 1Cor. 11:26; 1Cor. 11; 28; 2Cor. 13:5)


We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him
into extremes of fanaticism (Philippians 4:5)


We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church (James 5:20)

Civil Government

We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the
will of God (Romans 13:1-5)

The Eternal Godhead

We believe THAT THERE IS ONE God, Creator of the universe, eternal, holy, loving, all-powerful and deserving of our praise and thanks; and that, in the unity of Godhead, there are three, equal and divine: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit;

The Father the King of the Universe, full of Glory and Majesty, whose justice demands that sin be punished, but whose love sent His own Son to take that punishment for us.

The Son Jesus Christ, who has always been with the Father, who was born to the virgin Mary by the power of God in Israel about 2000 years ago, who taught and healed people, who died on the cross to take away sins, who lived again to defeat death, who lives with those who believe in him and defends them in heaven.

The Holy Spirit the Spirit of God, always with the Father and Son, but now also with believers in Christ, sent by him to guide and help them and also in the world to draw people to God and salvation. (Deut. 6:4; John 1:1-3; Matt.1: 23; 1John 5:7; Isa.9: 6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1Jn. 5:7)

The New Birth

We believe that the change, which takes place in the heart and life at conversion, is a very real one (John 3:3; 2Cor. 5:17; John 15:19; Gal. 2:20; Psa. 1:1,2)

Baptism with the HolySpirit

We believe that the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with
power; and that His incoming is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4)

The Plan of Salvation

We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him-Jesus. (John 3:16; Romans 5:8; Isa. 55:7; Heb. 7:25;)

Daily Christian Living

We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1; 1Thess. 4:3; 2Cor. 7:1; Heb. 6:1; Rom. 8:5; Isa. 35:8)ns 5:8; Isa. 55:7; Heb. 7:25;)

The Spirit-Filled Life

We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32)


We believe that Heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17)

The Second Coming of Christ

We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (I Thessalonians 4:16, 17)

Tithes and Offerings

We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:7)

Divine Healing

We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the physically sick in
answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16)

Salvation through Grace

We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the
righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8;Rom. 3:10; Rom. 3:23; Isa. 64:6; John 6:47; Eph. 2:13)

Water Baptism

We believe that baptism by immersion in water is a sign to the world of our new birth; that, just as Christ was placed in consider our old self and nature dead and so are we “buried” in water and come up again to eternal life. (Matt.28: 19;Rom.6:4; Acts 2:41)

The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian; and that we
should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (I Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22)


We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as
the Savior (Revelation 20:10,15)

Church Relationship

We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible Body of
Christ (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25)

The Final Judgement

We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgment seat of God, and there
receive eternal life or death (2 Corinthians 5:10)
