The Word of God – The Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired & without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, & that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith & conduct.
The Trinity – There is one living & true God, eternally existing in 3 persons, that are equal, in divine perfection & that execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence & redemption.
God the Father – an Infinite, Personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power & love. He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of each person, He hears & answers prayer & He saves all who come to Him through Jesus Christ from sin & death
God the Son – Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit. His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles & teachings. His substitution for us in His atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for his people,& personal visible return to earth.
God the Holy Spirit – came forth from the Father & Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness & judgment & to regenerate, sanctify & empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, & Guide.
Regeneration – All people are sinners by nature& by choice & are, therefore under condemnation. Those who repent of their sins & trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
The Church – The universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head& all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work & fellowship. God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary tasking of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
Christian Conduct – Christians should live for the glory of God & the well-being of others; that their conduct should be blameless before the world; they should be faithful stewards of their possessions; & that they should seek to realize for themselves & others the full stature of maturity in Christ
The Ordinances – The Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism & the Lord’s Supper. Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water into the Name of the Triune God. The Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death. We believe these ordinances should be observed & administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Last Things – The personal & visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth & the establishment of His kingdom, the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting life in heaven, of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment in hell.
