WHAT WE BELIEVE

We Believe:

1. The Bible is the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original documents, and of final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

2. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. The Lord Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man; born of a virgin, and sinlessly perfect. His sacrifice on the cross of Calvary was for the sin of the whole world. He arose bodily from the dead, and ascended to His Father's right hand, where He now ministers as the believer's Great High Priest.

4. Each member of the human race is fallen, sinful, and lost; regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of man. Redemption is wholly by the blood of Christ; and salvation is by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Every true child of God possesses eternal life, and is safe for all eternity.

5. The Holy Spirit indwells the believer at the time of conversion, and therefore the child of God is sealed until the Day of Redemption, and is empowered to live a Godly life.

6. The Bible teaches the "blessed hope," i.e., the personal, premillenial, and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

7. The truth of the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust; the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.

8. All believers should be baptized by immersion, and thus seek to teach this truth. (This, however, is not the door to the church or an absolute condition to fellowship.)

9. All Christians should obey the Lord in observing the Lord's Supper. This remembrance of Christ's death is held each Lord's day; a practice which began with the early Christians.

10. The Church, as a whole, is not an organization, but rather a living organism, known as the Body of Christ. The local church is composed of believers in a locality, who gather in Christ's Name for worship, prayer, edification,testimony, and gospel outreach. Government and discipline are the responsibility of the local church.

While the above is important, one is not saved by giving mental assent to certain facts but by having a personal relationship with God. One must receive The Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour.
