What We Believe
1. We believe that there is one, and only one, true and living God. We believe that God is from everlasting to everlasting, existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
2. We believe that the Bible, the Word of God, both the Old and New Testament was written by holy men of God under the divine inspiration of God Himself. We believe the Bible is without error and is preserved for eternity.
3. We believe that man was created by God in the holy and righteous image of God. We believe that Eve, being deceived by Satan, transgressed God's law and Adam willingly sinned against God. We believe that every person is born with a sinful nature and is in need of God's mercy and grace for the forgiveness of their sins.
4. We believe that God and only God can grant forgiveness of sins and save a soul from eternal damnation in a lake of fire. We believe that God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to die and make reconciliation to Himself possible. We believe that Jesus willingly laid down His life and shed His blood to forgive the sins of the whole world.
5. We believe that salvation is a free gift. All one must do to be saved is to believe and call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that salvation is by grace through faith. Once a person is saved, this salvation is once and for all of eternity. We believe that salvation cannot be lost, stolen, or forfeited.
6. We believe that to go to heaven, one must come through Jesus Christ. We do not believe that church attendance, baptism, or any other work of man will get one to Heaven.
7. We believe in two ordinances of the Church:
Baptism - Being the total immersion in water, done so in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. We do not believe that baptism is a condition for salvation but a symbol of a person's faith and belief in Jesus Christ.
The Lord's Supper (Communion) - The use of bread and grape juice commemorating the blood and body of Christ. This is to be preceded by spiritual, self-examination.
