What we believe

  1. We believe in one God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit - three persons, yet, but one God, whose name is Jahweh (I Am).
  2. We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, who is none other than God the Son manifest in the flesh, and in whom all the fullness of the Godhead dwells forever.
  3. We believe that Jesus Christ is the one and only head of the church; that all believers are equally priests unto God, that ordination, while it recognizes position, bestows no power; that the local church is independent and sovereign.
  4. We believe that all men are sinners needing a Saviour; that salvation is only and altogether through simple faith in Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, faith always accompanied by works to bring about repentance in others, and that without such faith there can be NO salvation here or hereafter.
  5. We believe in the unbroken conscious existence after death determined by life before death; in the personaond coming of Christ to judge the world; in the resurrection of the body which for those who die in the Lord shall be like Christ's glorified body; in the eternal well being of the saved and the eternal punishment of the lost.

What we stand for

  1. We stand for the Bible. It is our law, our creed, and our final authority in all matters relating to faith and practice.
  2. We stand for the regeneration or "birth from above" as a basis for church membership.
  3. We stand for believer's baptism - the immersion of the believer in obedience to Christ's command as a symbol of the death to the old life and resurrection to the new life.
  4. We stand for the separation of church and state and for the largest measure of civil and religious liberty. (This is in reference to the traditional meaning of "separation of church and state", which is to say that no governmental authority shall determine a state-mandated
    religion or method of worship; and since the United States was founded as a Christian nation, Godly men and women are encouraged to be active and involved in her political process and in the educational system).
  5. We stand for education, evangelism and worldwide missionary endeavor.
