Doctrinal Summary

  • WE BELIEVE in the plenary, verbal inspiration of the Bible and that no scripture is of any private interpretation.  The Bible is our only rule of faith and practice, using the King James Version (KJV) only, believing that God has guarded and preserved His Truth through it.
  • WE BELIEVE in the Tri-Unity:  God the Father, and God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; each equal in every Divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
  • WE BELIEVE Jesus Christ to be the only begotten Son of God; born of a virgin; lived a sinless life; died on the cross for the sins of others; was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures:  ascended, and is now seated at the right hand of God in Heaven as the High Priest of every believer; He is coming again to rapture His own that they might be with Him forever more.  His coming will be Pre-tribulation and could be at any time.
  • WE BELIEVE that Heaven and Hell are both literally prepared places and the eternal abode of the saved and lost respectively.  To be saved, one must be ‘Born Again’; Salvation is by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, made possible to whosoever will, upon hearing the Gospel:  Once a person is truly saved, that person can never again be lost.
  • WE BELIEVE in the local New Testament Baptist Church with perpetuity back to the earthly ministry of Christ.  He is the Founder and Head of the local Body; The Great Commission was given to the local church, and no Convention, Association, nor any other man made organization has any Scriptural right nor authority to do the work God has given to His local church.
  • WE BELIEVE that there are only two church ordinances:  Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, to be carried out in local church capacity only.
  • WE BELIEVE that Tithes and Offerings are the only Scriptural way to finance the Lord’s work, and members of the Body are to accept and practice this way.
  • WE BELIEVE in separated, consecrated Christian living, and practice church discipline if and when it becomes necessary.
