Statement of Faith

We believe in the verbal inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of the Scriptures as contained in the original languages.  II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21

We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three Persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; and these three are one God.  Genesis 1:26; John 10:30John 4:24; Deuteronomy 6:4

We believe that the eternal Son of God became incarnate in the Lord Jesus Christ, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, Mary, and is both true God and true man, apart from sin.  John 1:1John 1:14John 1:18; Matthew 1:21-23; I John 5:20

We believe that salvation is received by grace alone through faith in the substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ: that for our sins He died and was resurrected for our justification.  I Peter 3:18; I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8-9

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and, that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption.  John 16:8-11; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; 2 Corinthians 3:6; Ephesians 1:13-14

We believe that every believer is called to a holy life of service and should belong to a Bible-believing local church for fellowship and for the furtherance of the Gospel to every creature at home and around the world.  Peter 1:15-16; Matthew 28:19-20; Hebrews 10:25; Acts 1:8; Mark 16:15

We believe that the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking in tongues and the gift of healing, were temporary.  Speaking in tongues was never the common or necessary sign of the baptism or filling of the Holy Spirit, and that ultimate deliverance of the body from sickness or death awaits the consummation of our salvation in the resurrection, though God frequently chooses to answer the prayers of believers for physical healing.  I Corinthians 1:22; I Corinthians 13:8; 1 Corinthians 14:21-22

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God but voluntarily fell from his sinless state. As a result, all men are sinners and hopelessly sinful in themselves, apart from the grace of God.  Genesis 1:27Genesis 9:6; Romans 5:12Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:1

We believe that every true believer, born of the Spirit, can have full assurance of salvation and is eternally secure in Christ.  John 3:5-6; I John 5:12-13; John 10:28-29

We believe that a Baptist church is a congregation of baptized believers associated by a covenant of faith and fellowship of the Gospel.  Acts 2:41-42

We recognize water baptism and the Lord’s Supper as the Scriptural ordinances of obedience for the church in this age.  Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; Acts 18:18; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord.  God commands His people to separate from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices, and associations, and to refrain from all immodest and immoderate appearances.  Romans 12:1-2; Romans 14:13; 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 1 John 2:15-17; 2 John 9-11; Leviticus 19:28; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

We believe in the Genesis account of creation, and that it is to be accepted literally, and not allegorically or figuratively; that man was created directly in God’s image and after His own likeness; that man’s creation was not a matter of evolution or evolutionary change of species, or development through interminable periods of time from lower to higher forms; that all animal and vegetable life was made directly, and God’s established law was that they should bring forth “after their own kind.”  Genesis 1:1; Exodus 20:11; Acts 4:24; Colossians 1:16-17; Hebrews 11:3; John 1:3; Revelation 10:6; Romans 1:20; Acts 17:23-26; Jeremiah 10:12; Nehemiah 9:6; Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 2:21-23; Genesis 1:11; Genesis 1:24

We believe that any form of sexual immorality is a perversion of God’s gift of sex.  Genesis 2:24Genesis 19:5Genesis 19:13Genesis 26:8-9Leviticus 18:1-30Romans 1:26-291 Corinthians 5:11 Corinthians 6:91 Thessalonians 4:1-8Hebrews 13:4

We believe that human life begins at conception and that the unborn child is a living human being.  Abortion constitutes the unjustified, unexcused taking of unborn human life.  Abortion is murder.  We reject any teaching that abortions of pregnancies due to rape, incest, birth defects, gender selection, birth or population control, or the physical or mental well being of the mother are acceptable.  Job 3:16; Psalm 51:5; Psalm 139:14-16; Isaiah 44:24; Isaiah 49:1; Isaiah 49:5; Jeremiah 1:5; Jeremiah 20:15-18; Luke 1:44

We believe that Christians are prohibited from bringing civil lawsuits against other Christians or the church to resolve personal disputes.  We believe the church possesses all the resources necessary to resolve personal disputes between members.  1 Corinthians 6:1-8; Ephesians 4:31-32
