What we believe

We believe the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God, consisting of sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, without any error, the all-sufficient authority in matters of faith, doctrine, and Christian living.


We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.


We believe in the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, and that He is true God and man. Jesus lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father and is now our High Priest and Advocate.


We believe the Holy Spirit is the One sent from God to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, of judgment, to regenerate and cleanse from sin. He is the resident guide, teacher, and strengthener of the believer.

We believe that man was created innocent and in the image of God but that he was tempted by Satan and sinned by rebellious disobedience of God’s command. Because of this, all people since are born with a sinful nature and stand in need of salvation from God’s wrath.


We believe that eternal salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from man's works and is possessed by any and all who have faith in and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Once truly received, salvation can never be lost.


We believe that a New Testament Church is a voluntary association of baptized (immersion) believers in Christ who have covenanted together to follow the teachings of the New Testament in doctrine, worship, and practice.  We believe that the only two church ordinances are baptism and the Lord's Supper. We believe in the autonomy of the local church. The church shall manage its own affairs and shall not be subject to any other religious body organization.


We believe in the personal, bodily, imminent, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ and that His Second Coming inspires believers for dynamic and zealous life and service for Him while waiting for His return. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in heaven, and the everlasting punishment and separation from God of the unsaved in hell.


We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female, that the term “marriage," according to Scripture, is the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture, that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. 


We subscribe to the "Baptist Faith and Message" adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000 as our larger statement of faith with scriptural references.
