Christ Alone

For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen. (Romans 11:36 ESV)

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God; that the sixty-six books, as originally written, comprising the Old and New Testaments were verbally inspired by the Spirit of God and were entirely free from error; that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice, and the true basis of Christian union. [Psalm 119:105, Isaiah 40:8, John 1:1-2, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16-17]

God

We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. [Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, John 4:24, 1 Timothy 2:5, John 1:14, Colossians 1:16-18]

Jesus Christ

We believe in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ, in His eternal existence with the Father in pre-incarnate glory, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return. [Luke 24:44-47, John 8:58, John 17:5, Matthew 3:16-17, 1 Corinthians 15:20-23, Colossians 2:9, Acts 1:11]

Holy Spirit

We believe in the absolute and essential deity and personality of the Holy Spirit Who convinces of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; Who regenerates, sanctifies, illuminates and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ. [John 14:26, Romans 8:26, Isaiah 11:2, Titus 3:5-6]

Creation

We believe the Biblical account of creation in all aspects and that God created everything which exists in six (6) literal 24 hour days, in accordance to the Hebrew word יוֹם – Yom meaning a unit of time from sunset until the next sunset; including evening and morning. On the seventh (7th) day, God rested from His work and it was good. [Hebrews 11:3, Gen 1:1-31, Revelation 4:11, Exodus 20:11, Job 38;39;40, Nehemiah 9:6]

Man

We believe that man was divinely created in the image of God; that he sinned, becoming guilty before God, resulting in total depravity, thereby incurring physical and spiritual death. [Genesis 1:27, Genesis 2:7, Genesis 3:16-19, Romans 3:23; 6:23]

Satan

We believe that Satan exists as an evil personality, the originator of sin, the arch-enemy of God and man. [1 Peter 5:8, 2 Corinthians 11:14, Ephesians 6:11]

Salvation

We believe that salvation is by the sovereign, electing grace of God; that by the appointment of the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a vicarious, expiatory and propitiatory death; that justification is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and that those whom God has effectually called shall be divinely preserved and finally perfected in the image of the Lord. [John 1:12, Ephesians 1:7, 2:8-10, 1 Peter 1:18-19, Titus 3:5, Romans 3:21-26Romans 8:28-30, Romans 9:22-23, Heb 12:1-2]

Future Things

We believe in the personal, bodily and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and the judgment and conscious, eternal punishment of the wicked. [Revelation]

Local Church

Ministry of the Word, the mutual edification of its members, the propagation of the faith and the observance of the ordinances. We believe it is a sovereign, independent body, exercising its own divinely awarded gifts, precepts, and privileges under the Lordship of Christ, the Great Head of the church. We believe that its officers are pastors and deacons. [Acts 2:42-47, Acts 14:23, Hebrews 10:25, Hebrews 13:17, 1 Timothy 5:17, Titus 1:5]

Ordinances

We believe that there are only two ordinances for the church regularly observed in the New Testament in the following order:

  • Baptism, which is the immersion of the believer in water, whereby he obeys Christ’s command and sets forth his identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.
  • The Lord’s Supper, which is the memorial wherein the believer partakes of the two elements, bread and wine, which symbolizes the Lord’s body and shed blood, proclaiming His death until He comes. [Matthew 26:26-28, 1 Corinthians 11:24-25, , Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:38]

The Lord’s Day

We believe that the first day of the week is the Lord’s day and that, in a particular sense, it is the divinely appointed day for worship and spiritual exercise. [Acts 17:2, Acts 20:7, Mark 19:9]

Civil Government

We believe that civil government is of divine appointment for the interest and good order of society; that magistrates are to be prayed for, conscientiously honoured and obeyed, except only in the things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the only Lord of the conscience and Prince of the kings of the earth. [Romans 13:1-4, 1 Peter 2:13-14, Acts 5:27-29]

Church and State

We believe in the entire separation of church and state. [Roman 13:1-4, 1 Peter 2:13-14, Acts 5:27-29]

Religious Liberty

We believe in religious liberty; that every person has the right to practice and propagate their beliefs. [1 Corinthians 10:23-11:1, 2 Corinthians 3:17, Romans 14:5]
