What We Believe

The Scriptures

The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. We accept the New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine. (II Timothy 3:16; Proverbs 30:5)

the godhead

Our God is one, but manifested in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Philippians 2:6; St. Matthew 3:16-17)

man, his fall, redemption

Man is a created being made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adams transgression and fall, sin came into the world. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one (Romans 3:10). Jesus Christ the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil. He shed His blood and gave His life to redeem and restore man back to God. (Romans 5:12; Romans 3:23; Romans 3:9,10; I John 3:8; Galatians 3:13-14) Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God. (Ephesians 2:8)

eternal life and new birth

Mans first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The new birth is necessary for all men, and when it is fulfilled, it produces eternal life. (II Corinthians 7:10; I John 5:12; St. John 3:3-5)

water baptism

Baptism in water is by immersion and is a direct commandment of our Lord. It is for Believers only. This ordinance is a symbol of the Christians identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. (St. Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8:36-39)
