We Believe…

… That the Holy Scriptures are the verbally inspired Word of God and are the final authority for faith, life, and conduct; that they were given without error and are preserved without error. We use only the King James Bible in our materials. No exceptions, no options, no change. (2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17)

… That there is one God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of Heaven and earth. In unity of the Godhead, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, equal in every divine perfection, and  executing distinct but harmonious offices in the work of redemption.  (John 4:24, 10:30; Matthew 28: 19,20)

… That Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man, “For all have sinned,…”  (Romans 3:23), by His death on the cross as a vicarious, substitutional sacrifice. That man’s justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1-14; Galatians 4:3-5)

… That Salvation is by grace, through repentance and faith in the substitutionary work of the Son of God, the just dying for the unjust. That all true believers are eternally secure in Christ. (Romans 3:24,25; I Corinthians 15:3, 20; Hebrews 9:12-22; I Corinthians 3:15)

… That the return of Jesus Christ is both sure and soon coming. That this second coming will be a literal, bodily, personal return. That His coming for His bride, the church, is pretribulational and constitutes the eternal “blessed hope” set before us. That there will be a bodily resurrection for the just and unjust to join their souls for a final judgment. The unjust to an eternal conscious punishment in the lake of fire. For the just an eternal conscious blessedness in the city of God. (I Thessalonians 4:16-18; Revelation 3:21, 20:1-15)

… That the local church was given two ordinances: Baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper. (Acts 8:36-39; I Corinthians 11:23-28)

… In the biblical distinctives of the Baptist faith. They are:  Biblical Authority, Autonomy of the Local Church, Priesthood of all Believers, Two Ordinances, Individual Soul Liberty, Saved Baptized Church Membership, Two Officers (Pastor & Deacon), Separation of Church and State.
