The Bible

We believe that the Bible the sixty-six books in the Old and New Testament, is the verbal-plenary Word of God, that it was given by inspiration of God, that it is, therefore, inerrant and infallible in the original writings, and that it is the sole authority in all matters of faith and practice. We believe that  the Traditional Masoretic Hebrew Text for the Old Testament and the Majority Text for the New Testament are the closest to the original manuscripts.    (Places where taught: II Peter 1:21; II Timothy 3:16-17)

The Trinity

We believe in the one, and only one, true and living God, eternally existing in three eternal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Places where taught: John 14:7-12; John 16:7; Matthew 28:19)

God the Father

God the Father is the first person of the Trinity. He is personal and sovereign. He is perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, and measureless in power. He is merciful as well as just. He concerns Himself in the affairs of men. He hears and answers prayer according to His own will. He saves from sin and death all the ones He sovereignly chose in eternity past to grant repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, for His glory alone. (Places where taught: Eph. 1:4-6, 17-23; Eph. 2:4-10; Rom. 8:29-33; Rom. 9:11; Lev. 11:44-45; I Peter 1:15-16; Eph. 4:6; Rom. 3:21-26; Rom. 5:8; Isaiah 6:1-5; I Corinthians 1:25; Job 1:6-12; Job 2:1-6; I John 5:14)

God the Son

God the Son, Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, is God’s only begotten Son, existing in Heaven from eternity past, virgin born, and sinless in His life. He made atonement for the sins of the ones the Father sovereignly  chose from eternity past by shedding His blood in His death upon the cross at Calvary. He arose from the grave bodily, and ascended into Heaven where He is seated at the right hand of the Father and where He makes intercession for the believers. (Places where taught: Matthew 1:18-25; Romans 3:24-28; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 7:25-26; Hebrews 4:14-15; Hebrews 1:13; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Matthew 28:5-6; John 8:58; John 17:5)

God the Holy Spirit

God the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He is true God and equal with the Father and the Son. He regenerates, teaches, sanctifies, seals, indwells, and comforts those He saves. He empowers for Christian service. He bears witness of the truth. He testifies concerning Jesus Christ, and He never leads anyone at any time contrary to the teaching of the scriptures. (Places where taught: John 16:7-11; Acts 5:3-4; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; Eph. 1:13-14; I Corinthians 6:19-20; John 14:16-17; Eph. 5:18-21; Acts 1:8; Titus 3:5; John 3:5-7; II Peter 1:21)


We believe in the reality of Satan as a distinct personality, who, having been perfectly created, fell from his exalted state thought pride, which prompted his rebellion to God, leading a multitude of the angelic host in his revolt; that he is the arch-enemy of God, having purpose to thwart the divine counsels, that he is the prince of this world, and the god of this age; that he is the king over the realm of the demons as indicated by the name Beelzebub; that he is the adversary of the believers and the accuser of the brethren; that he shall be barred from all access to heaven during the great tribulation, at the end of which he is to be bound in the abyss for a thousand years; that he shall be loosed for a little season at the close of the millennium to provoke the final rebellion of mankind against God, after which he is to be cast forever in the lake of fire as the execution of his sentence of  judgment. (Places where taught: Job 1:6-12; Job 2:1-7; Ezekiel 28:12-18; Isaiah 14:12-14; I  Timothy 3:6; Revelation 12:3-4; Matthew 4:1-11; II Cor. 11:13-15; John 12:31; II Cor. 4:3-4; Matthew 12:21-31; I Peter 5:8; Rev. 12:7-10; Rev. 20:1-10; John 16:11)


We believe that all men are sinners both by nature and by choice but that God sovereignly chose from eternity past a remnant to serve and worship Him. We believe therefore, that all who repent and believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence, and those who refuse to repent and believe in Jesus Christ will be forever separated from God in Hell. Man was created in the image of God, but he sinned and thereby incurred not only spiritual death, which is separation from God, but also physical death. We believe that all human beings are born with a depraved sinful nature, that man is naturally a slave to sin, dead in sin, and loves his sin. Apart from a regenerating work of the Spirit, man will stay in this state until he perishes. (Places where taught: John 6:44, 63-65; Rom. 3:23, 5:12; I John 1:8-10; II Cor. 5:6-8; Phil. 1:21-23; Gen. 1:26-27; Ps. 51:5)


We believe that salvation is the free gift of God brought to men by grace and received by repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of sins. Salvation is through faith and repentance in that shed blood and is not earned by any good works whatsoever. All those who come to Christ only come because of the Spirit quickening them and God granting them faith and repentance, so there is no room to boast. (Places where taught: Eph. 2:8-9; Rom. 3:24-25; John 1:12-13; John 3:3-5; Titus 3:5; Acts 20:21)

The security of the believer

We believe in the eternal security of the true believer only because of God’s preserving providence in the Christian’s life. Also that it is the privilege of the believer to rejoice in the assurance of his salvation. (Places where taught: Rom. 5:1-11, 8:29-39; John 10:27-30; I John 5:13)

The Church

We believe that the local church is God’s program for this present age. It is to be composed of saved people who have been scripturally baptized (immersed) as a testimony of their salvation. There were two ordinances instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ to be carried on only by the local churches- Believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The local church is organized for worship, evangelism, teaching, the observance of the ordinances, and fellowship. We believe that the local church is autonomous, that it is the only agency which properly carries out the great commission, and that it’s only officers are Bishops (Pastor or Elder) and Deacons. (Places where taught: Matt. 28:19-20, Acts 2:41-47; Phil 1:1; I Tim. 3:1-13) 

Spiritual Gifts

We believe God is sovereign in the bestowment of all His gifts, that the gifts of evangelists and pastor-teacher are sufficient for the perfection of the saints for today, and that speaking in tongues, and the working of sign-miracles gradually ceased as the New Testament Scriptures were completed and their authority became established and they are sufficient to bring all to faith in Christ. (Places where taught: Eph. 4:16-18; I Cor. 13:8-10; John 20:30-31)
