The Scriptures   

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author and salvation for humanity. The scriptures are without error. All Scripture is true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us and what pleases Him. Therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation. 

  Exodus 24:4; Deuteronomy 4:1-2; 17:19; Joshua 8:34; Psalms 19:7-10; 119:11, 89, 105, 140: Isaiah 34:16; 40:8; Jeremiah 15: 16; 36:1-32; Matthew 5:17-18; 22:29; Luke 21:33; 24:44-46; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Acts 2:16.; 17:11; Romans 15:4; 16:25-26; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:19-21.  


Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man and is offered freely on behalf of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Salvation includes regeneration, justification, and sanctification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.  

A)   Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart brought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and a commitment of the entire person to Him as Lord and Savior.   

B)   Justification is God's gracious and full acquittal based upon His righteousness given to all sinners who repent and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer into a relationship of peace and favor with God   

C)   Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is set apart to God's purposes and is enabled to progress through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit's indwelling. The believers should grow in grace and spiritual maturity. Sanctification is the process of being made like Jesus. It is through the believer's life until the day of redemption.

 Baptism and the Lord's Supper   

We believe that two ordinances have been committed to the local church: baptism and the Lord's supper.  

Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is a beautiful testimony, a public announcement of a personal choice. It is a believer showing their faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior and union with Jesus in his death and resurrection, which brings forth a new life. Ultimately a proclamation of what is to come.   Being a church ordinance, baptism is a prerequisite to the privileges of church membership. It is also a sign of fellowship and identification with the visible Body of  Christ. 

 The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby born-again believers, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the  Redeemer and anticipate His second coming. The Lord's Supper is the commemoration and proclamation of His death until He comes and should always be preceded with self-examination and gratitude. Whereas the elements of the Lord's Supper are only representative of the flesh and blood of Christ, the Lord's Supper is nevertheless an actual communion with the risen Christ who is present in a unique way, fellowshipping with His people.
