WE BELIEVE THE HOLY BIBLE IS THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD,

WITHOUT ANY ERROR, THE ALL-SUFFICIENT AUTHORITY IN

MATTERS OF FAITH, DOCTRINE, AND CHRISTIAN LIVING.


— 2 —
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.

HE DIED ON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS.

HE ROSE BODILY FROM THE DEAD,

ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN WHERE
 

 — 3 —

HE SITS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER

AND IS NOW OUR HIGH PRIEST AND ADVOCATE.


— 4 —
WE BELIEVE THAT MAN WAS CREATE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD

BUT FELL INTO SIN AND IS, THEREFORE, LOST.

ONLY THROUGH REGENERATION BY THE WORK

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN MAN’S SALVATION

AND SPIRITUAL LIFE BE OBTAINED.


— 5 —
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.


 — 6 —
WE BELIEVE IN A REGENERATED CHURCH MEMBERSHIP:

THAT IS, PERSONS OLD ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND THEIR NEED

FOR JESUS CHRIST AND, OF THEIR OWN FREE WILL,

ACCEPTED HIM AS THEIR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR.

 

— 7 —
WE BELIEVE THAT BAPTISM IS BY IMMERSION AND

THE LORD’S SUPPER IS A MEMORIAL TO

HIS SUFFERING AND DEATH ON THE CROSS.

THESE ARE ORDINANCES TO BE OBSERVED

BY THE CHURCH IN ITS PRESENT AGE.

THEY ARE, HOWEVER, NOT TO BE REGARDED

AS MEANS FOR MAN’S SALVATION.


— 8 —
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.


— 9 —
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.


— 10 —
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 OR ORGANIZATION.
