OUR DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

The Scriptures:  We Believe that the Holy Bible was written by divinely inspired men, although God is the supreme author. It is without error, without contradiction, and is sufficient as the standard for Christian living and obedience to God. The Holy Bible is the means by which we will be judged.
The True God:  We believe that there is one, and only one, true and living God, whose name is Jehovah, the Maker, and Supreme Ruler of Heaven and Earth. He is worthy of all possible honor, glory, praise, and love. God is revealed through the Holy Trinity, made up of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who are equal in every divine perfection and execute distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
The Virgin Birth:  We believe that Jesus was miraculously begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of Mary, a virgin.
Creation:  We believe the Genesis account of creation, which proclaims that the universe was spoken into existence by God.
The Fall of Man:  We believe that man was created in holiness by Almighty God, but through disobedience to the command of God, sinned. After man's disobedience, sin was imputed to all of mankind.
Satan:  We believe Satan was an angel who was cast out of Heaven and is called by many names, such as "the God of This Age", "the Prince and Power of the Air", and "the Serpent of Old". Satan's final destination will be in the lake of fire for all of eternity.
Salvation (Ephesians 2:8:9):  "By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast".
Free Salvation:  We believe that salvation is free, paid by Christ for all who believe.
Atonement for Sin:  We believe that salvation is wholly of grace, through the voluntary, vicarious atonement of Christ.
Justification:  We believe that we are declared righteous or justified by God solely through faith in his Son, Jesus Christ.
The Lordship of Christ:  We believe in the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and that He is Savior and Lord of our lives and governs every aspect of our lives.
The Church:  We believe that the visible church of Christ is made up of born-again and baptized believers who observe the ordinances of Christ and governed by His laws. They exercise the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word.
Baptism and The Lord's Supper:  We believe in baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This ordinance signifies the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and our identification with Him. We also believe that the ordinance of the Lord's supper in which Jesus' body and blood are symbolized by bread and wine/juice and is to be taken often in remembrance of Him and the work that He did upon the cross.
The Perseverance of The Saints:  We believe that only true Christians will endure unto the end because they are kept by the power of God unto salvation for Jesus Christ.
Civil Government:  We Believe that the civil government is divinely appointed by God for the interest and good order of human society. As Christians, we are to pray consistently for our government officials. We are to honor and obey them, except in things that oppose the will of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Human Sexuality:  We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God's gift of sex. We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one's gender by appearance or surgery.
Marriage:  We believe that the only legitimate marriage is a covenant instituted by God between one man and one woman. We believe that it is a picture of Christ and His Church, which is His bride.
End Times:  We believe that the end of this world is approaching and at the last day, Christ will descend from Heaven and raise the dead from the grave to final retribution. The wicked will be judged and sent to a literal hell, and the righteous will have endless joy in the presence of Jesus Christ our Lord. We believe that this judgement will be final and eternal.
