Statement of Faith

As an Independent Baptist Church, We Believe…

 

     In the triune God. He is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. He is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, righteous, holy, merciful, and just. He is infinite and eternal in existence. He alone is worthy of all glory and praise.

 

     In the inerrancy, and infallibility of the Scriptures as the Word of God. We use the King James translation as our standard preaching and teaching text.

 

     In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God.

 

     In The Virgin Birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. That Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Ghost and without the taint of sin in all respects.

 

     In salvation by grace through faith, plus nothing and minus nothing. The conditions to salvation being repentance from sin and faith in the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ. That salvation is available to all who hear the gospel of Christ but applied to only those that believe unto salvation.

 

     In the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost. That there is a literal heaven and a literal hell.

 

     In the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit as the third Person of the Godhead. That the Baptism of the Spirit is the New Birth and that all who are born again possess the gifts of the Spirit in measure. That the gifts of healing, tongues, interpretation of tongues, and prophecy were Apostolic era gifts and not active today.

 

     That the Body of Christ is visible in the local New Testament Church that is led by spiritual men (i.e. elders/deacons) under the headship of Jesus Christ. That each local Body of believers is independent, self governing and not to be lorded over by any other ecclesiastical body whether it is religious or secular.

 

     In the responsibility of each disciple of Christ to live out their faith in their daily walk. That a godly lifestyle is vital to an effective witness for Christ. That each believer should endeavor to live a disciplined and separate lifestyle from those that do not profess Christ as Savior.

 

     In the duty of all believers to live according to the dictates of Scripture and their conscience while extending liberty to those that may disagree with them in areas that are not of fundamental nature to the faith once delivered to the saints. That total allegiance to Jesus Christ is expected of all and that all should conduct themselves in love at all times and in all circumstances.

 

     In the personal and pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to this earth for the purpose of establishing His Kingdom on earth for one thousand years. This is called “the blessed hope” of the Church of Jesus Christ.

 

     In maintaining a distinction between Israel and the Church of Jesus Christ. The Church is not the new Israel but a distinct people of God chosen by Him for His purpose of reaching all with the gospel in this dispensation of grace. That Israel still has a significant place in the economy of God and when the “times of the Gentiles” are over, God will resume His dealings with the nation of Israel, showing favor and fulfilling His promises made to them.

 

     That literal interpretation ( i.e. historical grammatical interpretation) of the Scriptures is the most consistent method of interpreting the Bible. That symbols, allegories, types and other figures of speech are to be interpreted according to the rules that govern their use and within the context of the passage being studied. That ALL interpretations must be consistent with the whole of Scripture and a high view of God.

 

     That there must be ecclesiastical separation from all groups that deny the fundamentals of the faith or teach doctrines and practices that are contrary to the “faith once delivered to the saints”. That the spirit of ecumenism that prevails today is both unscriptural in its approach and unproductive in the promoting of the true work of God to this generation.

 

     That homosexuality is to be condemned, along with all other sins of the flesh and sinners challenged to turn from their sin. That the Word of God determines what is right and wrong, not the mores of a culture or a world view that is in conflict with the Creator God that establishes what is the standard of conduct for all in His creation.

 

     That all we do in our daily and church life should be done with a high view of God in accordance with His character and nature. That it is the duty of the believer in Christ to strive toward Christ likeness in attitude as well as outward conduct. That we hold uncompromising convictions regarding truth, yet show unconditional love toward all.
