The Scriptures

We Believe the Holy Bible is God's infallible Word, written by men who were divinely and uniquely inspired, and that it is our supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

 

The Trinity

We Believe in the Holy Trinity. In God the Father, creator of heaven and earth, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom and measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ

We Believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, born of a virgin, sinless in life, who atoned for the sins of the world by His death on the cross.

We Believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people, and His personal, visible return to the earth in power and glory.

The Holy Spirit

We Believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from God to convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, comfort and seal forever those who believe in Jesus Christ.

We Believe that all men are sinners by nature and by choice, but that "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

We Believe therefore, that those who accept Christ as Lord and Saviour shall be forever in God's presence in heaven, and that those who reject Christ as Lord and Saviour will forever be separated from God in a place called hell.

The Gospel

We Believe the Gospel is the good news that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, that He was buried and arose alive and triumphant from the grave, and in so doing He made the necessary sacrifice for atonement, became the substitute for our redemption which thereby paid our sin debt and purchased our salvation for us, and that all who place theirfaith in full trust to Him are saved by His shed blood (I Cor. 15:3-4; Col. 1:14; Eph. 1:7; Rom. 5:9; Acts 4:12).

 

Believer's Baptism

We Believe each person claiming Christ as Saviour should promptly make public his/her profession of Christ, that each new Christian should follow the Lord's command for believer's baptism, that such scriptural baptism is always by immersion, that baptism does not save but that it is the Lord's prescribed way for us to identify ourselves with Him in open confession, that baptism is a symbolic representation, a picture of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (Matt. 10:32-33; 28:18-20; Luke 9:23; Acts 16:30-34; Rom. 10:9-10).

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Further, we subscribe to the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention on June 4, 2000.
