What We Believe

Core Beliefs

We believe  in the Holy Scriptures, accepting fully the writings of the Old and New Testaments as the very Word of God, verbally inspiredin all parts and sufficient in themselves, as our only infallible rule of faith and practice.
We believe in the one Triune God, who is personal, spirit, soverign, self-existent, and self-revealing in three persons-The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost.
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son, our Great God and Savior; that without any essential change in His divine Person, He became man by the miracle of the Virgin Birth, thus to continue forever as both God and true man; that He gave Himself in death upon the cross, bearing the the sin of the World; that He arose from the dead; and that as our Great High Priest, He ascended into Heaven to be Advocate and Intercessor for all who believe.
We believe that man was the direct creation of God and that by personal disobedience to the revealed will of God, man became a sinful creature and the progenitor of a fallen race, which is universally sinful in both nature and practice.
We believe that salvation is the free gift of God, neither merited, nor secured by the work of man, but received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Those who have received Christ then possess the gift of eternal life, sonship in the family of God, deliverance and security from all condemnation.

We believe in the Second Coming of Christ and that His return will be personal, visible, premillenial, and glorious, and that the time is always imminent.

We believe that the spirits of the saved at death go immediately to be with Christ, their bodies waiting for the resurrection at the second coming of Christ. The spirits of the unsaved are separated from God and experience punishment until the final day of judgement at which time their bodies shall be raised to be judged according to their works and be separated from God forever, experiencing everlasting punishment.

We believe that the Church is a spiritual body of believers in Christ and should walk separate from the ways of the world, assembling themselves together in local churches for worship, fellowship, teaching, and observance of the ordinances of baptism by immersion, and the Lord's Supper.
