A Look at What We Believe

BIBLE – The Word of God is divinely inspired, it is inerrant and infallible. We believe in the verbal, plenary, inspiration of scriptures. We use only the King James Version which came from the Masoretic Text of the Old Testament and the Received Text of the New Testament (Textus Receptus). The Bible is our authoritative standard for our faith, practice, and instruction.

GODHEAD – Exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The three are one God.

CREATION – God is the sole creator of this universe. We believe in the Genesis account of creation. Creation took place in six, literal days (24 hour period).

THE PERSON OF CHRIST – God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to die for sin. Jesus Christ was both God and man in flesh, born of a virgin and lived a sinless, perfect life. The four Gospels reveal His mighty works, miracles, and signs. He was crucified, died for our sins, and was raised from the dead on the third day. He later ascended up to Heaven and sits on the right hand of the Throne of God. He is the Head of the Church and intercedes for believers. He will come again personally, to this earth and set up is millennial kingdom.

ATONEMENT – By His death and by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus made a perfect atonement for sin. His shed blood justifies the Believer.

PRESERVATION – True believers are eternally secure. They cannot lose their salvation. Sin may interrupt the joy of fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of the Heavenly Father but not destroy their relationship with Him.

RESURRECTION – All who receive Christ become joint-heirs with Christ. At death, their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness. At the Rapture, their bodies will be raised in the likeness of His glory and will dwell forever in divine presence.

SPIRITUAL GROWTH – It should be the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.


Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost, we do now in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute regularly and cheerfully to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations.

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling; backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage; and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Saviour.

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Saviour to secure it without delay.

Moreover, we engage that, when we remove from this place, we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
