Statement Of Faith

1. The Bible

We believe the Holy Bible was verbally inspired and the product of Spirit-
controlled men, and therefore is the absolute truth without any error in its content. We believe that we have a faithful representation of the originals in the King James Bible and it’s the only version we accept and use. We believe that the Bible is the sole authority for our faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:16-17. II Peter 1:19-21)

2. The True God

We believe there is one living and true God. He is the creator and supreme ruler of heaven and earth glorious in holiness and alone worthy of our worship. In the unity of the Godhead there are three persons: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. (Exodus 20:2-3. I Corinthians 8:6. I John 5:7)

3. The Son of God

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit in a miraculous manner and was born of Mary, a virgin. He is both Son of God and God the Son, fully God and fully man. In taking upon Himself our nature, yet without sin, He honored the divine law by His obedience, and by His death made a full and substitutionary atonement for our sins. (Isaiah 7:14. Luke 1:27. John 1:14. John 1:29-37)

4. The Holy Spirit

We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit. His work is to reprove the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement. He indwells the believer at salvation and we are sealed by him until the day of redemption. (John 16:7-14. John 14:16,26. Ephesians 4:30)

5. The Devil/Satan

We believe in the personality of Satan, that he is the unholy god of this age, and the author of all the powers of evil and sin, and is destined to the judgment of an eternal justice in the Lake of Fire. (Matthew 4:1-3. Revelation 20:10. II Corinthians 4:4. Revelation 12:9)

6. The Act of Creation

We believe the Genesis account of creation being six literal twenty-four hour days, and believe that man came by direct creation of God and not by evolution. (Genesis 1 and 2. John 1:3. Colossians 1:16-17)

7. The State of Man

We believe that man was created in innocence under the law of God, but by voluntary transgression fell from his sinless and happy state, the consequence making all mankind sinners. Therefore every man and woman born today is a sinner in need of the sacrifice made for him by Jesus Christ coming to earth to be crucified. (Romans 1:32. Romans 3:10. Romans 3:23. Romans 6:23)

8. The Salvation of Man

We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly by grace apart from works; through the death and resurrection of the perfect “Lamb of GOD”, Jesus Christ, who substituted Himself for us by taking the penalty for our sins. This satisfied the demands of the Holy God, thus justifying the repentant sinner. (Ephesians 2:8-9. I John 4:10. Acts 15:11. I Corinthians 15:3-4. John 3:16. Acts 16:31)

9. The Local Church

We believe that a local church is a congregation of immersed believers, associated by covenant of faith and friendship of the Gospel, observing the ordinances of Christ, (baptism by immersion and the Lord’s supper), governed by His laws. Its officers are Pastors and Deacons, whose qualifications, claims, and duties are clearly defined in the Scriptures. (Acts 2:41-42. I Corinthians 11:2. Acts 20:28. I Timothy 3:15. Colossians 1:18)
