Our Core Doctrinal Beliefs
We uphold the sole authority of the Word of God due to its inspiration of God and inerrancy. Upon this foundation, here is a summary of the doctrines we believe the Word of God teaches. These doctrines drive what we believe and define who we are. A fuller doctrinal statement is available upon request. Here is an understanding of what a "Baptist" church is.
We Believe: There is one God who is Holy, Eternal, the Creator and exists in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We Believe: Jesus Christ is God, was born of a virgin, shed His blood for sinners, was buried and physically rose again.
We Believe: Regarding His rapture and return, we hold the pre-tribulational and pre-millenial positions.
We Believe: The Holy Spirit is God, works to convict men of sin and their need of Christ. He indwells the believer providing power for doing right and serving the Lord.
We Believe: Salvation is necessary because all have sinned and Hell is sin's punishment. Jesus provided forgiveness of sin by dying on the cross and rising again. Individuals must place their faith in Him alone to be saved from sin. Eternal life is the gift of God and means what it simply states: Believers are saved forever.
We Believe: The church should be independent and autonomous. Its members should be saved and baptized believers. Christ is its head, while pastors are called by God to lead its members to follow the Bible. We observe two ordinances: Baptism (Immersion) and the Lord's Supper.
We Believe: Believers are to become committed disciples of Jesus Christ and practice separation from sin and unbelief, and practice separation unto the Gospel.
