WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its Author, salvation for its end, and truth without mixture of error for its matter; that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us; and therefore, is and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds and opinions should be tried.
Ref: Psalm 19: 7-11; 119:89, 105, 130, 160; John 12: 48-50, 17:17; Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3: 16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Revelation 22: 18-19
The True God
We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, whose name is JEHOVAH, the maker and supreme ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence, and love; that in the unity of the Godhead, there are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct and harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
Ref: Genesis 1:1; Exodus 15:11; Psalm 83:18, 90:2, 147:5; Jeremiah 10:10; Matthew 28: 18-20; Mark 12:29-30; John 4:24; 1Corinthians 8:6; Ephesians 4:4-6; 1 Timothy 1:17; 1 John 5:7; Revelation 4:11; 2 Corinthians 13:14
The Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in holiness, under the law of his Maker; but by voluntary transgression fell from that holy and joyous state; in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners, not by constraint, but by birth; being by nature utterly void of that holiness required by the law of God, positively inclined to evil; therefore, under just condemnation to eternal ruin, without defense or excuse.
Ref: Genesis 3:1-6, Romans 1:18-21, 28-32, 3:9-18, 5:12-14; Galatians 3:22; Ephesians 2:1-3
The Way of Salvation, Jesus Christ
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace; through the mediatorial office of the Son of God; who by the appointment of the Father, freely took upon Him our nature, yet without sin; honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and by His death made a full atonement for our sins; having risen from the dead. He is now enthroned in heaven; and uniting in His wonderful person the tenderest sympathies with divine perfections. He is every way qualified to be a suitable, compassionate, and an all-sufficient Saviour.
Ref: Genesis 3:15; Matthew 1:18-25, 18-11; Mark 1:1-3; Luke 1:35; John 1:14, John 3:16, John 1: 12-13, John 3:3; Acts 15:11; Romans 3:24-25; Romans 6:23; 2 Corinthians 5:17,19; Galatians 4:4, 1:4; Ephesians 2:8; Philippians 2:7-8; Hebrews 7:25, 9:11-15, 12:1-2
A Gospel Church
We believe that a visible church of Christ is a congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the ordinances of Christ; governed by His laws; exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His word; that its only Scriptural offices are bishops, pastors, or elders and deacons, whose qualifications, and duties are defined in the epistles to Timothy and Titus;
Ref: Acts 2:41-47, 14:23; Ephesians 4:11-13; 1 Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6; Acts 6:1-7
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
We believe that Christian Baptism is the immersion in water of a believer, in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, to show forth, in a solemn and beautiful emblem, our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, with its effect in our death to sin and resurrection to a new life; that it is prerequisite to the privileges of a church relationship; and to the Lord’s Supper; in which the members of the church, by the sacred use of bread and fruit of the vine are to commemorate together the dying love of Christ; preceded always by solemn self-examination.
Ref: 1 Corinthians 11:23-28; Romans 13:2, Matthew 3:16, 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; Romans 6:1-11
We believe that the first day of the week is the Lord’s Day or Christian Sabbath; and is to be kept sacred to religious purposes, by abstaining from sinful recreation; by the devout observance of all means of grace, both private and public; and by preparation for that rest that remaineth for the people of God.
Ref: Acts 20:7; Mark 2:27-28
