Statement of Faith

 

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His shed blood for atonement; His bodily resurrection; His ascension; His personal premillennial, pretribulational coming for His redeemed ones; and His subsequent return to earth with His saints to establish His millennial kingdom. 

Satan is a person and Hell is a place of eternal conscious punishment of all unsaved. 

The Holy Spirit convicts of sin, makes believers children of God through the new birth, assuring them of Heaven, and by His indwelling enables Christians to live a godly life.  We believe that the gift of tongues ceased with the completion of the New Testament. 

Men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe in the eternal security of the believer.

A New Testament Church is an organized body of baptized believers practicing scriptural ordinances and actively engaged in fulfilling the Great Commission.

Baptism is a Scriptural ordinance requiring immersion of believers, only to be administered by a New Testament Church.

The Lord’s Supper is a Scriptural ordinance of the church to be partaken of by obedient Christians of like faith.

We believe that marriage is solely between a man and a woman.

We believe that God made mankind distinctly male and female.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We will not knowingly work together in any spiritual cause with the National Council of Churches, the World Council of Churches, nor with those of the neo-orthodox, the neo-evangelical, the neo-pentecostal, the charismatic, or the ecumenical movements.
