• We believe there is only one true and living God. He exists in three person: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Genesis 1:1-3; 1 John 5:7
  • We believe all scripture is given by inspiration of God and is found perfectly preserved today in the Authorized Version King James Bible. This Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. Psalm 12:6-7; 2 Timothy 3:16
  • We believe the Lord Jesus Christ to be God manifest in the flesh, virgin born, without sin, crucified, risen and coming in the clouds for his church and soon after coming back to earth to establish his kingdom. 1 Tim. 3:16; Matt. 1:18-25; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; John 14:1-6; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Luke 1:31-33; Revelation 11:15; 19:11-16
  • We believe all men are sinners and that sin and death entered this world through the first man, Adam. Genesis 3; Romans 3:10-23; 5:12.
  • We believe salvation is available to all men by grace through faith in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ who died for all. This salvation is a free gift from God to all who exercise “repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 16:30-31; 20:21; John 3:16.
  • We believe water baptism is by immersion after a genuine profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is representative of a death, burial and resurrection and is administered to believers only. Acts 8:36-38; 10:47-48
  • We believe the born again child of God is eternally secure in Christ and is baptized, indwelt, regenerated, comforted and sealed by the Holy Ghost until the day of redemption. Ephesians 1:12-13; 4:30; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 12:13; John 14:16-17, 26; Titus 3:5; Philippians 1:6; Romans 8:38-39
  • We believe the signs of an apostle (tongues, miracles, gift of healing, etc.) were given in the early church to confirm the word to Israel. With Israel having been temporarily set aside and the completion of the New Testament scriptures, the sign gifts are not currently in use. Today, these signs are often counterfeited by false teachers and will be used by the coming antichrist to deceive the world. Mark 16:17-20; 1 Corinthians 1:22; 14:22; 2 Corinthians 12:12; 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12; Revelation 2:2
  • We believe in a literal, burning, hell as described plainly in the Bible. Luke 16:19-31; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 20:11-15
  • We believe in a literal, paradise known as heaven where the saints of all ages reside with God. John 14:1-3; 2 Corinthians 5:6-8; Revelation 21:1-5
  • We believe it is a Christian’s responsibility to witness and proclaim the gospel of the grace of God to the world through personal and public testimony, gospel tracts and support of local and foreign missions. Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:18-20;
  • We believe the scriptures are to be rightly divided; therefore, we are dispensationalists. While all scripture is profitable, there are divinely ordered dispensations which must be notated through prayerful and careful Bible study in order to avoid doctrinal heresy. We are not hyper-dispensational, which is a heresy of its own. 2 Timothy 2:15; 3:16-17
  • We believe Christians are to be holy and separate from the world in thought, word, deed and dress. This is not legalism, but rather an outward testimony of the inward change brought about by the Lord Jesus Christ. Simply stated, our lights are to shine in a dark world. 2 Corinthians 6:14-17; Titus 2:1-10
  • We are independent. This means our local assembly is self-governing and is not connected to a denominational headquarters or convention. The Pastor is the overseer and church leadership is to be male. 1 Peter 5:1-4; 1 Timothy 3:1-14; Acts 6:1-6; Hebrews 13:7, 17
