Doctrinal Statement

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be verbally (Tim. 3:16-17, II Peter 2:16-21) inspired by God, and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and life. We believe that man was created in the image of God; and that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and responsible for sins of thought, word and deed. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us as a High Priest and advocate.

We believe that Christian baptism is by the total immersion of a believer in water, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit according to Biblical command , (Rom. 6:1-4, Matt. 28:19). Baptism sets forth the essentials in the experience of the believer being death to sin and resurrection to newness of life.

We believe in the Blessed Hope, the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that all who have surrendered, by faith, to the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
