The Bible
We believe that the Scripture of both the Old and New Testaments are the inerrant, infallible Word of God, verbally inspired, reliable in science, history, and every other matter they discuss, and they are of supreme and final authority in faith and practice.

The Godhead
We believe that God is spirit, infinite, eternal, unchangeable in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truthCreator and Supreme Ruler of all. God is one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit these three differing in office, but equal in the great work of redemption.

God the Son
We believe that Jesus is very God, one with the Father and the Holy Spirit; that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived without sin, died on the cross for our sins, arose from the dead bodily and ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God making intercession for us.

Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Person who convicts the sinner; and that He seals the Christian and indwells to guide, comfort, empower, and make fruitful.

We believe that man was created in the image and after the likeness of God, not by evolution but by direct act of God. By voluntary transgression man fell from the holy and happy state; as a result, all mankind are now sinners, not by constraint but by choice; being by nature utterly void of that holiness required by the law of God, positively inclined to evil, and therefore under just condemnation to eternal ruin, without defense or excuse.

We believe Satan is an angel that fell through pride and was cast out of heaven by God. He is the originator of sin and deceives the whole world.

We believe that salvation is a gift of God, that a sinner is saved, therefore justified, on the single ground of personal faith in the shed blood of Christ, entirely by grace, and shall not come into condemnation as a lost sinner, and shall never perish.

Personal Separation
We believe that all the saved are called to a life of purity and obedience to the Word of God.

We believe that the local church is a local body of baptized believers, independent of every other earthly body, following the Bible alone and being led by the Holy Spirit in conducting its affairs; which assembles for the purpose of worship, mutual edification, observance of the ordinances, and of the propagation of the gospel as commanded by Christ and His great commission, its scriptural offices being pastors and deacons.

Ecclesiastical Separation
We believe that the church should conduct itself in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon its Saviour and Lord; and, that separation unto God from all religious apostasy, including ecumenism, new evangelicalism, and the charismatic movement is commanded of God.

Churches Ordinances
We believe that the scriptural ordinances are baptism and the Lords supper: baptism being by immersion in water of a believer in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, symbolic of our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Saviour; The Lords supper being that in which believers preceded always by self-examination are to commemorate together the death, and love of Christ until He comes.

The Second Coming of Christ
We believe in the blessed hope, the imminent, bodily return of Christ, and the bodily resurrection of the righteous dead, and taking up of the saints at His coming to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Then shall be great tribulation after which Christ will come to be on earth with power and great glory coming with His saints to reign for a thousand years.
