WHAT WE BELIEVE
LOVE is the greatest commandment upon which all others are based.
THE BIBLE is infallible and verbally inspired by God.
GOD is the personal, triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, equal in divine perfection.
SATAN is a fallen angel, the archenemy of God and man, the unholy god of this world and his destiny is the lake of fire.
Jesus was virgin born and sinless and deity. His sufferings and death were substitutionary for all mankind but only applied to those who believe. He died, was buried and arose bodily on the third day and 40 days later ascended to the Father.
The HOLY SPIRIT is the administrator for Jesus Christ in His churches. The sign gifts ended when the Bible was completed. The Spirit convicts sinners, regenerates, seals, secures, indwells and fills every believer.
MAN was created in God’s image, fell by transgression, the result being that all are sinners.
The SECOND COMING will be premillennial, personal and bodily. This includes the resurrection of the righteous, the millennial reign and the resurrection of the unrighteous into eternal punishment in the lake of fire.
SALVATION is wholly by grace through faith. Requirements are repentance toward God and faith toward Christ.
The CHURCH began in Christ’s earthly ministry and is a local, visible assembly of baptized believers. Each church is independent and self governing and Christ promised perpetuity to His churches.
The OFFICES are pastors and deacons to be filled by qualified men.
The Ordinances are baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
ASSOCIATIONS are servants of and under the control of the churches
