Statement of Faith and Purpose

Section 1:  We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, written under Divine inspiration and that it is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

Section 2:  We believe that there is one living God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

Section 3:  We believe in God, the Father, an infinite personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that he hears and answers prayer, and that He saves all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

Section 4:  We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man, sinless in His life, teachings, and miracles, making atonement for the sins of the world through His shed blood. We believe in His burial, His bodily resurrection, His ascension into Heaven, His perpetual intercession for His people, and His personal visible return to the world according to His Promise.

Section 5:  We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide, to those that have received Him.

Section 6:  We believe that all men are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are regenerated by the Blood of Jesus Christ; that those who adopt Christ as Savior and Lord will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Savior and Lord will be forever separated from God in a place of conscious, eternal torment.

Section 7:  We believe in the Church – a living, spiritual organism of which Christ is the Head, and of which all regenerated people are members. We believe that a visible local church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, who have been united for worship, work and fellowship.  We believe that the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper were committed to these visible local churches for perpetual observance; and that God has laid upon these local churches the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as personal Lord and Master. We believe that all human betterment, social improvement, and spiritual growth, are the inevitable by- products of His gospel.

Section 8:  We believe that a Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of his fellowmen; that his conduct should be blameless before the world; that he should be a faithful steward of his possessions; and that he should seek to realize for himself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.

Section 9:  We believe in the personal visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the body, and final judgment, the eternal blessedness of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked.

Section 10:  To advance the cause of Christianity, its morals, spiritual and social interests in the community, to spread the Gospel by the preached Word, by the printed Word, by personal testimony and by personal work. The spiritual shall always remain primary.

The forgoing is a resume of the greater doctrines set forth in the Scriptures.  Each Christian is urged to study the Scriptures as suggested in II Timothy 2:15, not only to assure himself of the verity of the succinct statements of the above stated teachings, but to further his personal enrichment by many other teachings which the Holy Spirit has chosen to include in God’s Holy Word.
