1. The infallibility, inerrancy, and verbal inspiration of the Bible.  (II Peter 1:21, II Tim 3: 16)  We hold solely to the Authorized King James Version of 1611.

2. The belief in the Trinity, one God in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (Matt 28:19,
I John 5:7)

3. The eternal Deity of Jesus Christ. (John 3:16, Heb 13:8, Rev 1:8, Rev 1:18)

4. The virgin birth of Jesus Christ  (Isa 7:14, Luke 1:27)

5. The sinless humanity of Jesus Christ.  (Heb 4:15)

6. The substitutionary death of Jesus Christ. (Rom 5:6,8, I John 2:2)

7. The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. (John 20: 26-28, Luke 24:39)

8. The personal, premillenial, pre tribulational second coming of Jesus Christ (Acts 1:11, I Thes 4:16-17, Rev 20)

9. Salvation by grace, through faith, without works. (Eph 2:8-9, Titus 3:5)

10.  The powers of Christ’s blood to save and cleanse from sin. (Col 1:14, I Peter 1:18-19, Eph 1:7)

11. Every believer is indwelt with, and sealed by, the Holy Spirit upon receiving Christ, and that the   believer is filled with the Holy Spirit for service. We believe that the Holy Spirit today bestows gifts for service upon believers, but that the sign gifts were restricted to the apostolic period.   (Romans 8:9, 10:44, Eph 1:13, 4: 11-12, I Cor 13: 8-13)

12. The eternal bliss of believers in resurrection bodies. (I Cor: 15:51-57, I Thes 4:16-17)

13. The eternal damnation in hell of all those who reject Christ. (John 3:36, Rev 20:11-15)

14. The free offer of salvation, without limit to the atonement. (John 3:16, II Peter 3:9, I Tim 2:4, I  John 2:2)

15. The eternal security of the believer. (John 3:16, 10:28)

16. We believe that the local church is a body of believers that meet together to worship God, to receive instruction, to observe the Christian ordinances, and to render whatever service the gospel requires; and that the local church is autonomous, directly responsible to Christ the Church’s head (Acts 2:38, 4 1-47; I Corinthians11: 17-34; Ephesians 1:1-2; 4:1l-16).

17. The Ordinances of the church are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is an act of obedience, a sign of faith, and a witness of salvation. In it, a believer in Christ follows Him by being immersed in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as a witness of the believer’s identification with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. There is no Saving Power in the act or the water, but it is a sign and symbol only. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial observation of that which the Savior did with His disciples on the night He was betrayed. It is in no sense a sacrifice, but is intended to commemorate His death and confirm the bond of communion of the Holy Spirit between believers and between Christ and His Church. (Matt. 28:19, Acts 10:48, Rom. 6:3, Col. 2:12, Gal. 2:16; I Cor. 11:23-29, Heb. 9:26-28, 10:12-14)

18. The Genesis account of creation, to be accepted literally, and not allegorically or figuratively. The direct creation of man in God’s own image and after his own likeness, man’s creation not being a matter of evolution or evolutionary change of species or development through interminable periods of time from lower to higher forms; the direct creation of all animal and vegetable life and God’s established law that they should bring forth only “ after their kind.” (John 1:1-4, Heb 11:3, Gen 1:1, 11, 21-27, 2:7, 21:23)

19. We believe that Satan is a person. He is the unholy god of this age, the prince of the power of the air, and the prince of this world. The Devil was a murderer from the beginning. He is a liar and the father of lies. There is absolutely no truth in him. He is the enemy of God and man and the author of all the power of darkness. He is a deceiver and blinds the minds of men to the end that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ may not dawn upon them. He is destined to the judgment of an eternal justice in the lake of fire. (John 8:44; John 16:11; Ephesians 2:2; II Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 20:10)

20. The command to evangelize all nations. (Acts 1:8, Matt 28: 19-20)

21. The one body of Christ consisting of all believers regardless of color, race, or standing.  (I Cor 12:13, Col 1:18, Gal 3:28)

22. The imminent and personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ to take his Body unto Himself before the tribulation and to set up His kingdom on the earth after the tribulation. (I Thes 4:16-17, Rev 11:15)
