Our Beliefs

What Exactly Do We Believe?

The Bible

We believe in the Holy Scripture, accepting fully the writings of the Old and New Testaments as the very word of God, verbally inspired in all parts; the scriptures are infallible, inerrant, and authoritative rules for a life in faith. We use the King James Version of the Bible.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 and 2 Peter 1:19-21

Origin of Sin

We believe man was created in the image of God but fell through sin, bringing not only physical death but also spiritual death- separation from God. All of mankind is totally depraved and has inherited a sinful nature.

Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:16-17, Genesis 3:16-19, Romans 3:10-23, and Romans 6:23

Salvation Through Faith

We believe that faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only condition of salvation.

Acts 16:31, Romans 10:9-10, and Ephesians 2:8-9

The Trinity

We believe in the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the infallible interpreter of the infallible Scriptures.

1 John 5:1-8 and John 16:7-15

Baptism by Immersion

We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water, under the authority of the local church, to show forth in a solemn and beautiful emblem our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior, through Whom we died to sin and rose to a new life.

Acts 8:36-39, John 3:23, Romans 6: 3-5, Matthew 3:16, Colosians 2:12, and 1 Corinthians 11:23-28

Human Sexuality

We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman.

Genesis 2:24, Romans 7:2, 1 Corinthians 7:10, and Ephesians 5:22-23

Eternal Security

We believe in the eternal security of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

John 10:27-29
