The Scriptures

    We believe that the written revelation of God, the word of God, is true, pure and preserved in the King
    James Bible.
Getting to Heaven
    The Triune God

    We believe there is but one living and true God who is self-existent and self-revealing in three distinct
    persons- The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
    The Fall of Man

    We believe that Adam was entrusted by God with care of the Garden of Eden, but that he voluntarily
    disobeyed the revealed will of God and, as a result, passed on sin to everyone on this earth except the
    Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that man cannot remedy his or anyone else’s sin, is apart from God and
    is subject to death and the torment of Hell.

    We believe that salvation is by grace through faith, purchased by Christ on the cross, and is a free gift,
    neither merited nor secured by any virtue or work of any person. It is received by personal faith in the
    Lord Jesus Christ through the instrumentality of the word of God as applied by the Holy Spirit.
    The Church

    We believe the church, the body of Christ, was founded by Him, that He is building it, and that it began
    on the day of Pentecost. We believe that a local church is a number of persons of a locality voluntarily
    united because of a common nature and interest, called out to take the Gospel to a lost world, and in
    so doing, to glorify God. We believe the church has two ordinances, the Lord’s Supper and scriptural
    baptism of a professing believer in water. It has only two offices, bishop (pastor) and deacon.
