Statement of Faith



Section 1: OF THE SCRIPTURES: We believe that the Holy Bible, in its existent form, consisting of the Old and New Testament, was written by men divinely inspired of God and is a perfect and complete treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, the promotion and advancement of God and his righteousness, through the redemptive work of salvation and perfecting of the saints as its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter; that God through it, reveals all necessary principles by which man is to live and be judged by, and therefore is, and shall remain, the only sufficient, certain and authoritative rule of all saving knowledge, faith and obedience. (II Timothy 3:16, 17; Isaiah 8:20; I Thessalonians 5:21)


Section 2: OF THE TRUE GOD: We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit whose name is JEHOVAH, the Creator, Preserver and Supreme Ruler of Heaven and earth; that He is inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worth of all possible honor, confidence, and love: that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost – equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious functions of operation. (John 4:24; Psalm 83:18; Exodus 15:11; Mark 12:30; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; Ephesians 2:18)


Section 3: OF PROVIDENCE AND ELECTION: We believe that God, from eternity, decrees or permits all things that come to pass, and perpetually upholds, directs, and governs all creatures and all events; yet so as not in any wise be the author or approver of sin nor to destroy the free will and responsibility of intelligent creatures. Election is the eternal purpose of God, according to which He graciously regenerates, sanctifies, and saves sinners; and that such election does not violate the freedom of individual choice. (Isaiah 14:24-27; Ephesians 1:9-11; II Peter 3:9)


Section 4: OF THE FALL OF MAN: We believe God originally created man in His own image, and free from sin; but, through the temptation of Satan, he transgressed the command of God, and fell from his original state of holiness and righteousness; whereby he has inherited a nature corrupt and wholly opposed to God and His law, are under condemnation, to eternal ruin without defense or excuse. (Genesis 1:27-31; Ezekial 18:19-20: Isaiah 53:6; Romans 5:19; Romans 1:20)


Section 5: OF THE WAY OF SALVATION: We believe Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, is the divinely appointed mediator between God and man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Having taken upon Himself human nature, yet without sin, being both man and God, He perfectly fulfilled the law, suffered and died upon the cross, making full atonement for our sins. He was buried, and rose again the third day, and ascended to His father, at whose right hand He ever liveth to make intercession of His people. He is the only Mediator, the Prophet, Priest, and King of every believer and Sovereign ruler of the Universe. (Ephesians 2:8; John 3:16; Philippians 2:16-17; Hebrews 7:25; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 2:18; Isaiah 53:4-5)


Section 6: OF REPENTANCE AND FAITH: We believe that repentance and faith are inseparable graces, both necessary for salvation, wrought in our hearts by the regeneration Spirit of God, whereby being deeply convinced of our guilt, danger and helplessness, and of the way of salvation by Christ, we choose to turn to God with confession and Godly sorrow; and at the same time we purpose and endeavor to walk with God so as to please Him in all things as we totally accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our Redeemer and King, and rely on Him alone as the only all-sufficient Savior. (Mark 1:15; Acts 11:18; Ephesians 2:8; Acts 2:37-38; Romans 10:9-10)


Section 7: OF THE FREENESS OF SALVATION: We believe that the blessings of salvation as a direct relationship between God and the individual, are made free to all by the Gospel that it is the immediate duty of all to accept them by a cordial, penitent, and obedient faith; and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner on earth but his own inherent depravity and voluntary rejection of the Gospel. (Isaiah 55:1; Romans 16:25-26; John 5:40; John 3:19) Section


8: OF GRACE IN REGENERATION: We believe that in order to be saved, sinners must be regenerated or born again, that regeneration is a process activated by the Holy Spirit, in connection with divine truth, culminating in salvation, giving of a holy disposition to the heart, by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, that its proper evidence appears in fruits of repentance, faith and newness of life. (John 3:3; II Corinthians 5:17; John 3:8; I Peter 1:22-25; Ephesians 5:9; Galatians 5:16-23)


Section 9: OF GOD’S PURPOSE OF GRACE: We believe that election is the eternal purpose of God, according to which He graciously regenerates, sanctifies, and saves sinners; that being perfectly consistent with the free agency of man, God’s purpose comprehends all the means in connection with the end; that grace is a most glorious display of God’s sovereign goodness, being infinitely free, wise, holy and unchangeable; that grace utterly excludes boasting and promotes humility, love, prayer, praise, trust in God, and active imitation of His free mercy; that it encourages the use of means in the highest degree; that it may be ascertained by it’s effects in all who truly believe the Gospel; that it is the foundation of Christian assurance; and that to ascertain it with regard to ourselves demands and deserves the utmost diligence. (II Timothy 1:8- 9; II Thessalonians 2:13-14; Exodus 33:18-19; II Timothy 2:10; II Peter 1:10-11)


Section 10: OF JUSTIFICATION: We believe that at the moment of salvation, the great gospel blessing, which Christ secures to such as believe in Him, is justification; that justification includes the pardon of all sin and the promise of eternal life; that it is bestowed not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done, but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood, by virtue of which faith His perfect righteousness is freely imputed to us of God that justification brings us into a state of most blessed peace and favor with God and secures every other blessing needful for time and eternity. (John 1:16; Acts 13:39; Romans 5:9) Section


11: OF SANCTIFICATION: We believe that sanctification is the process by which, according to the will of God, we are made partakers of His holiness; that it is a progressive work; that it is begun in regeneration; and that it is carried on in the hearts of believers by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, the sealer and Comforter, in the continual use of the appointed means especially the Word of God, humbleness, mourning, self-denial, suffering, prayer and seeking after God. (I Thessalonians; I John 2:29; Romans 8:5; Matthew 5:3-11; Philippians 2:12- 13)


Section 12: OF THE PRESERVATION OF THE SAINTS: We believe that those whom God hath accepted in the Beloved, and sanctified by His Spirit; will never totally nor finally fall away from the state of grace, but shall certainly persevere to the end; and though they may fall , through neglect and temptation, into sin, whereby they grieve the Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, bring reproach on the church and temporal judgments on themselves, yet God will never disown or reject them as His own children, but rather keep them as His own, ever drawing them back to a meaningful and upright relationship with Him. (John 3:31; I John 2:19; Romans 8:28; Philippians 1:6)


Section 13: OF THE HARMONY OF THE LAW AND GOSPEL: We believe that the law of God is the eternal and unchangeable rule of His moral government; that it is holy, just, and good; that the inability which the Scriptures ascribe to fallen men to fulfill its precepts arises entirely from their love of sin; and that the one great end of the Gospel is to deliver them from this inability and to restore them, through a Mediator, Jesus Christ, to a desired obedience of the holy law by the means of grace, which is the indwelling Spirit of God. (Romans 3:31; Romans 7:12; Romans 8:7-8; Romans 8:2-4)


Section 14: OF THE CHURCH: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the head of the Church which is a congregation of baptized believers associated by a covenant of faith; observing the ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights and privileges, invested in them by His word, who together form a physical representation of Jesus Christ in the world. Such people are to meet together regularly, in individual, local, New Testament assemblies, each assembly having a united purpose of making the Excellency and superiority of God and His ways known, which is the means toward the goal of pointing lost people to Christ, building up of the believers and giving praise, worship and honor to God. The offices of the church are elders (bishops) and deacons, who along with the congregation are free from the interference of any hierarchy of individuals or organizations. We believe that the Biblical structure for church governance is one of plurality. Therefore, the oversight of our church shall be accomplished by a “Church Leadership” comprised of the Pastor(s), Elders, & Deacons. We believe that unanimity amongst church leadership should be sought in order to follow the pattern provided to us in the New Testament. (Acts 14:23; Philippians 1:1; I Timothy 3:8-13; Matthew 18:17, 28:20; I Corinthians 1:1-13, 11:2; Titus 1)


Section 15: OF THE LORD’S SUPPER: We believe in the Lord’s Supper as an ordinance of Jesus Christ, to be administered with the elements of bread and fruit of the vine, and to be observed by His churches till the end of the world. It is in no sense a sacrifice, but proceeded by solemn self-examination, is designed to commemorate His dying love, to confirm the faith and to be a bond, pledge and renewal of our communion with Him, and of our church fellowship. (Acts 2:41-42; I Corinthians 11:26-28)


Section 16: OF BAPTISM: We believe that baptism is an ordinance of the Lord Jesus, obligatory upon every believer, wherein we are immersed in water in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, to show forth in a solemn and beautiful emblem of our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior with its effect in our death to sin and resurrection to a new life. (Acts 8:36-39; John 3:22-23; Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4)


Section 17: OF THE LORD’S DAY: We believe that the Lord’s Day is a Christian institution for special observance, and should be employed in exercises of worship and spiritual devotion, both public and private, resting from physical activities; works of necessity, mercy and worship only expected. (Acts 29:7; Psalm 118:24; Isaiah 58:13-14; Hebrews 10:24-25, 4:3-11)

Section 18: OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY: We believe that civil government is of divine appointment for the interests and good order of human society; and that magistrates are to be prayed for, conscientiously honored, and obeyed, except only in things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the only Lord of the conscience and the Prince of the Kings of the earth. (Romans 13:1-7; Matthew 22:31, 23:10; Acts 5:29)


Section 19: OF THE RAPTURE OF THE SAINTS: We believe in the “Blessed Hope” of the church, the body, personal, visible and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ, preceding the great tribulation and millennial reign of Christ, who will take away the saints to be caught up with Him in the air, and to be with Him forever more. (Acts 1:11; I Timothy 6:14; I Thessalonians 4:13-18)


Section 20: OF THE RESURRECTION: We believe that the bodies of men after death return to dust, but their spirit return immediately to God – the righteous rest with Him; the wicked, to be reserved under darkness to the judgment. At the rapture all the bodies of Christians who have died will be raised. At the last judgment all the bodies of the sinful dead will be raised. (Acts 24:15; Matthew 22:23-32; Luke 14:14; I Corinthians 15:21; John 5:21)


Section 21: OF THE JUDGMENT: We believe that God hath appointed a day, wherein He will judge the world by Jesus Christ, when everyone shall receive according to his deeds; the wicked shall go away into everlasting punishment, in a literal hell; the righteous unto everlasting life, in a literal heaven. (John 5:29; Luke 12:5; Matthew 13:41-50, 16:27, 25:46)


Section 22: GENDER, MARRIAGE, AND FAMILY: We believe that in the beginning God created (two) genders – male and female. We believe that God’s plan for marriage is the holy union of one natural born man to one natural born woman for as long as they both shall live. We believe that the only acceptable sexual relationship is between a husband and wife. All sexual activity outside of the marriage bed is strictly forbidden by God in the Bible. We believe that God’s design for the family unit consists of one husband married to one wife along with any children. We believe that the Bible explicitly lays out the roles of husbands, wives, and children within the context of the family. (Galatians 3:28; Colossians 3:18; I Timothy 2:8-15; 3:4-5, 12; Genesis 1:26-28; Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Psalm 127:3- 5; Proverbs 19:18; 22:15; 23:13-14; Mark 10:6-12; I Corinthians 7:1-16; Ephesians 5:21-33; 6:1-4, Colossians 3:18-21; Hebrews 13:4; I Peter 3:1-7)


Section 23: ABORTION & EUTHANASIA: We believe that even in the womb the unborn child is a living human being. We furthermore believe that God is the Creator and author of life; therefore, all human beings – from the womb until natural death, have an inherent right to life. Thus, we also believe that a medical act, of itself or by intention, which causes death is contrary to the will of God. (Job 3:16; Psalm 51:5; 139:14-16; Isaiah 44:24; 49:1, 5; Jeremiah 1:5; 20:15- 18; Luke 1:44; Exodus 20:13, 23:7; Matthew 5:21; Acts 17:28)
