Section 1: Holy Scriptures

  • We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the inspired and infallible word of God. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Section 2: The Godhead

  • We believe in the one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 1 John 5:7
  • We Believe that God is a Spirit and must be worshipped in Spirit and in truth. John 4:24

Section 3: The Person and Work of Jesus Christ

  • We believe that Jesus became man without ceasing to be God. He came into the world through the miraculous birth, conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. That through Him God might be revealed, and men might be redeemed. John 1:1, 2 & 14
  • We believe that Jesus was obedient to God and gave his own life on the cross of Calvary in order to redeem sinful men. John 3:16 John 10:17-18
  • We believe that Jesus truly suffered, was crucified, dead and buried. He arose from the dead and ascended into Heaven, there sitting at the right hand of God serving as our intercessor, mediator, and advocate. Hebrews 7:25, 1 Timothy 2:5, 1 John 2:1-2

Section 4: The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of Judgement. John 16: 7-8
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is the divine teacher who guides believers into all truth. John 16:13

Section 5: Man’s Total Depravity

  • We believe that God created man in his own image, and by the disobedience of Adam sin entered the human race. Man became alienated from God and is not able to do anything of himself to remedy his lost condition. Genesis 1:26, Romans, 3:23, Romans 5:12

Section 6: Justification

  • Those whom God effectually called, he also freely justified, not by infusing righteousness into them, but by pardoning their sins, and by accounting and accepting their persons as righteous; not for anything wrought in in them, or done by them, but for Christ’s sake alone; not by imputing faith itself, the act of believing, or any other evangelical obedience to them, as their righteousness; but by imputing Christ’s active obedience unto the whole law, and passive obedience in his death for their whole and sole righteousness by faith, which faith they have not of themselves; it is the gift of God. Romans 3:24, Romans 8:30, Romans 4:5-8, Ephesians 1:1 1 Corinthians 1:3-=31, Romans 5:17-19, Philippians 3:8,9, Ephesians 2:8-10, John 1:12

Section 7: The assurance of Believers

  • We believe that there is an experience that a person has in Christ that he can know immediately of his salvation. Romans 8:16
  • We believe that a backslider is out of fellowship with God, and in danger of God’s wrath and judgement.
  • We believe that if we backslide, we be renewed again through repentance. John 6:37 1 John 2:1
  • We believe that if saved, through the work of Christ he will bring your salvation to completion, and that nothing will separate God’s love for you. Philippians 1:6 Romans 8: 37-39

Section 8: On the Christian Life

  • We believe that all saved people should live such a life that it would not bring reproach upon our Lord and Savior. And that in striving to live a Christ like life whatever it may be. Separation from all religious apostasy, all sinful pleasures, practices, and associations is commanded of God. 2 Timothy 3:1-5, Romans 12:1-2 1 John 2:15-17 2 Corinthians 6:14,7:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:22

Section 9: Spiritual Gifts

  • We believe that God bestows the spiritual gifts on individuals for a divine purpose; however miraculous gifts such as speaking in tongues, prophecy and healing has ceased with the Apostolic church. The gifts of 1 Corinthians 12:4-1, 1 Corinthians 13:8-13

Section 10: Baptism

  • Baptism is an ordinance of the New Testament, ordained by Jesus Christ, to be unto the party baptized, a sign of his fellowship with him, in his death and resurrection, of his being engrafted into him; of remission of sins; and of giving up into God through Jesus Christ, to live and walk in newness of life. Romans 6:3-5, Colossians 2:12, Galatians 3:27, Mark 1:4, Acts 22:16, Romans 6:4
  • Those who do profess repentance towards God, faith in, and obedience to our Lord Jesus Christ, are the proper subjects of this ordinance. Mark 16:16, Acts 8:36-27, Acts 2:42, Acts 8:12, Acts 18:8
  • The outward element to be used in this ordinance is water, wherein the party is to be baptized, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 8:38
  • Immersion, or dipping of the person in water is necessary to the due administration of this ordinance. Matthew 3:16, John 3:23
