Statement of Faith

Membership in this church implies that the Holy Scriptures explicitly and plainly teach that all Scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and there is but one God, revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

That all men and women are by nature sinners, devoid of holiness, exposed to eternal ruin, and without excuse.

That Jesus the Christ, the God-Man, is our only mediator and Savior through the atonement He has made for sin by His death and resurrection.

That regeneration is a change wrought in us by the Holy Spirit.

That repentance is a change of mind affected through Godly sorrow for sin, and manifested in careful endeavor to live a Godly life.

That faith is a personal trust in Christ as the only and sufficient Savior, and a willing surrender to Him as the Lord and King.

That believers in Christ are no longer under condemnation but fully pardoned and restored to the Father’s favor.

That by the Holy Spirit the love and power of sin are gradually destroyed and a holy disposition strengthen.

That faith, if it has not works, is dead.

That believers are kept by the power of God unto salvation and will be preserved in holiness.

That a church is a body of baptized believers obeying the laws of Christ and observing His ordinances; that they are baptized by immersion in water in the likeness of Christ’s death; and the Lord’s Supper, an often repeated commemoration by the assembled church of the death of Christ in the use of bread and the fruit of the vine, are emblems of His body and blood.

That the Lord’s Day is to be dedicated to rest and public worship.

That we are to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all nations.

That Christ will come again without sin unto salvation.

That there will be a resurrection of all unto life or unto condemnation.

That there will be a general judgment which will fix the state of man as eternal life or eternal punishment.
