The Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and the
final authority in faith and practice.
There is only One God, eternally existing in three
persons of equal power and glory: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Man was made in innocence as the highest creation
of God. Man voluntarily sinned with the result being that all men are now
sinners by nature and choice. All men are therefore unable to please God and
are under His just condemnation to an eternal punishment in hell.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin
birth, His sinless life, His substitutionary death for sinners, and His
Salvation from sin and its consequences is by free
and sovereign grace of God, through faith alone. It is completely undeserved
and cannot be obtained by any human merit.
All who repent of their sin and believe in Christ
are forgiven, indwelt by the Holy Spirit at conversion, enabled to live a
life pleasing to God, and are assured of eternal life.
The blessed hope of every Christian is the
personal, visible, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ to judge the
world on the last day. All men will experience bodily resurrection. The
saved will go to everlasting life and the unsaved to everlasting punishment.
The doctrinal basis of our church is the 1689
London Baptist Confession of Faith. We believe that this is an
excellent, though not inspired, expression of the teaching of the Holy
Scriptures by which all confessions are to be measured.
