What We Believe

Basing our faith wholly on the Lord Jesus Christ for our salvation, believing in the teaching of the Word of God, and in those great distinctive principles set forth herein, namely, we believe in:

  • The pre-eminence of Christ as our divine Lord and Saviour and in his personal return.
  • The divine inspiration of the Bible, accepting in their entirety the writings of the Old and New Testaments in their original manuscripts, as the very Word of God; and therefore all-sufficient as the ultimate authority for Christian faith and practice.
  • One God, and only one, who is self-existent, eternal, and infinite in every excellence, and who has revealed Himself in the Trinity as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the same in essence though distinct in personality.
  • Receiving salvation by grace, that it is the free gift of God, through the death and resurrection of Christ, not by any virtue of works of man, but received only by personal faith in Jesus Christ.
  • The right of private interpretation and the competency of the individual soul in direct approach to God.
  • The absolute separation of Church and State.
  • A regenerate church membership.
  • The two scriptural ordinances of baptism in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, by believer's baptism only, which we practice by immersion, and the Lord's Supper as a memorial communion for the redeemed.
  • The complete independence of the local church and its inter-dependence in associated fellowship with other Baptist churches.
  • The personality of Satan as the enemy of God and adversary of man.
  • The spiritual unity of all believers, for which the Master so earnestly prayed.
  • The world-wide program of missionary fervor and evangelism in obedience to the final command of Jesus.
  • We therefore band ourselves together as a body of believers in Jesus Christ.
