What We Believe

We believe in the Old and New Testaments as the divinely inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

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

We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with sinful natures, in thought, word and deed.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, and is the representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life at the right hand of God, there for us as high priest and advocate.

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith, and not of works, and that all who are born again of the Holy Spirit, receiving by faith the Lord Jesus Christ, become children of God.

We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe in the personal and bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ and that His coming again might be at any time.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.

We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convicting unbelievers of the need for salvation and is the comforter and guide who lives in every believer.

We are in agreement with the doctrinal statement The Baptist Faith and Message Revised as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000.
