GOD | We believe in only one God who reveals Himself as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

JESUS CHRIST  We believe Jesus is the Son of God, born to the Virgin Mary, of the Holy Ghost.

THE HOLY SPIRIT We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead, our Comforter, who leads and guides us to all truth and righteousness.

THE BIBLE  We believe and regard the Bible with great seriousness. It is God's divinely inspired revelation of Himself to man. It is true, trustworthy and without error. We believe all scripture is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and instruction in righteousness.

SALVATION  We believe the only way to get into heaven is salvation through Jesus Christ. To achieve salvation one must confess faith in God through Jesus Christ, who God sent to die on a cross for the sins of mankind. Jesus Christ is the only name whereby mankind can be saved.

BAPTISM  We believe Christian baptism to be an ordinance for believers only, by immersion only and as a symbolic act, not having any power in itself. The act of baptism pictures what Christ has done for the believer in His death, burial and resurrection. It pictures what Christ has done for the believer through the new birth, enabling death to the old life and birth into the new life. Baptism gives testimony to a salvation already received; it is not a requisite for salvation. It is an act of obedience to Jesus Christ.

COMMUNION  We believe that the Lord's Supper memorializes the death of Christ.

THE SECOND COMING  We believe in the literal second coming of Christ when God will judge and divide between the saved and the lost and Christ will judge believers, rewarding them for acts done while living on earth.
