Statement of Faith

We believe in the Bible as the eternal, inspired, inerrant Word of God; the complete revelation of God's will. 
(Pvb 30:5) (II Tim. 3:16) (II Pet. 1:20,21)

We believe that there is one true and living God in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and these three are equal.
(II Cor. 13:14) (Mat. 3:16, 17) (Mat. 28:19)

We accept the complete Bible account of creation without question and unreservedly
(Gen. 1:1-2:2:25) (John 1:3)

We believe that Satan is the unholy god of this present age and world-systems; that he is the author of all of the powers of darkness and sin.
(II Cor. 4:4) (I Pet. 5:8)

We believe that man was created in the image of God and, as a result of voluntary action, ate of the forbidden fruit and was no longer innocent or worthy to walk with God; man spiritually died.
(Gen. 3:1-7) (Rom. 5:12)

We believe in the virgin birth as well as the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; we believe he was God in the flesh.
(Isa. 7:14) (Jhn. 10:30) (Luk. 1:31-35)

We believe the only atonement for sins is through the shed blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 
(Act. 4:12) (Heb. 9:11-15) (I Pet. 1:19,20) 

We believe in the total depravity of man in that he cannot come to Christ without the drawing force of the Father in Heaven.
(Jhn. 6:44) (I Cor. 2:14) (Rom. 8:7,8)

We believe in the unconditional election by God of man to salvation.
(Jhn. 17:2) (Eph. 1:4,5) (I Cor. 1:26-29)

We believe in an effectual calling that goes out to every elect whom God has chosen.
(Rom. 8:28-30) (Jhn. 6:37) (I Cor. 1:22-24)

We believe that all who are truly born again are preserved by God the Father and persevere through the Lord Jesus Christ.
(Rom. 8:35-39) (I Pet. 1:4,5) (Jhn. 10:27-29)

We believe salvation to be totally by the pure grace - unmerited favor - of God.
(Jonah 2:9) ( Eph. 2:8,9) (II Tim. 1:9)

We believe in separate judgments for the righteous and unrighteous.
(I Cor. 3:12-15) (II Tim. 4:7,8) (Rev 20:11-15) (II Pet. 3:7)

We believe that Jesus instituted His church during His personal ministry on earth.
(Mat. 16:18) (Mar. 3:13-19)

We believe in a local, visible church; not an invisible, universal church.
(Act. 14:23) (I Cor. 14:33) (I Ths. 1:1)

We believe Jesus Christ gave two ordinances to the churches: baptism and the Lord's Supper (communion).
(Mat. 26:26-29) (Act. 2:41) (I Cor. 11:14-16) (Act. 19:4,5)

We believe that baptism is a complete immersion in water.
(Mar. 1:10) (Act. 8:38.39)

We believe in a believers baptism; we believe one is baptized because he is saved and not in order to be saved.
(Act. 2:41) (Act. 8:12, 36, 37)

We do not believe in high-pressure methods of begging people to donate money or persuading people to join our church, we simply believe in preaching the gospel and leaving the results to the Lord.
(Act. 2:47) (II Cor. 9:6,7) (I Cor. 16:2)

We believe in the absolute and eternal sovereignty of God; we believe, presently and in the hereafter, all things will glorify God; everything from His saints, who will be with Him, to those who will spend eternity in the lake of fire, glory be to God.
(Dan. 4:35) (Ps. 76:10) (Is 42:8) (Jud. 25) Rev. 4:11)
