doctrine

  • We believe in the Bible as the inerrant Word of God composed of the Old and the New Testaments verbally inspired and all sufficient rules of faith and practice.
  • We believe in one God, eternally existing in Three Persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, and that He is true God and Man. He died and shed His blood for redemption of sin, rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father, He is our High Priest and Advocate, and where He will come to judge the living and the dead.
  • We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing-sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer to be a witness and live a godly life.
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost and only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ who brings spiritual new birth and regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
  • We believe that salvation is the free gift of God by grace through faith, entirely apart from work, and is possessed by all who by faith have received Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior.
  • We believe that the Church is composed of all born-again believers:  her mission to witness concerning her Head, Jesus Christ, preaching and teaching the Gospel to all people and will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air when He appears before the seven (7) years tribulation period begins.
  • We believe marriage is a Biblical institution established by God as clearly described in the scriptures.  This Church adheres only to marriage as a legal union of one man (biologically born male) and one woman (biologically born female) in a lifetime commitment.  Accordingly, this church’s pastors and leaders will not officiate in same-sex unions or same-sex marriages, nor will its property or resources be used for such purposes.
  • We believe that the Bible teaches that legitimate sexual relations are exercised solely within marriage.  Hence, sexual activities such as but not limited to, adultery, fornication, incest, homosexuality, pedophilia and bestiality, are sinful and violated the teachings of the Bible about appropriate behavior.  Further, we believe that the creation, distribution and viewing of pornography, as well as efforts to change gender, also violate scriptural admonitions and are sinful.
  • We believe in the personal pre-millennial and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that “blessed hope of His appearing” has a dynamic bearing on the personal life and service of every believer.
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
  • We believe that every local church has the right, under Jesus Christ as Head and Lord, to decide and govern her own affairs to the glory of God through Him.
  • Furthermore, we subscribe to “The Baptist Faith and Message” as part and parcel of this Confession of Faith, as it was adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in June 14, 2000.
