Our Beliefs

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 bodily resurrection.

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.
