Statement of Faith

We believe that Jesus Christ is the only hope of Salvation, forgiveness of sin, abundant and eternal life. We affirm that the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the authority for our beliefs. This church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message originally adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention May 9, 1963, revised June 9, 1998 and revised June 14, 2000.

Articles of Faith

  1. We believe in only one true and living God, possessing the essence of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and these are one.
  2. We believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God and the only rule of faith and practice.
  3. We believe the doctrine of original sin.
  4. We believe that eternal life is a gift from God and is only received by His grace through placing one’s faith in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ at the Cross and through His resurrection.
  5. We believe that sinners are satisfied in the sight of God only by the imparted righteousness of Christ.
  6. We believe in the eternal security of all true believers.
  7. We believe that baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of Christ’s Church. We believe that true believers are the only subjects of those ordinances and we believe the true mode of baptism is by immersion following a personal commitment of one’s life to Christ.

  9. We believe in a final physical resurrection of all unbelievers to eternal punishment separated from God in the Lake of Fire.
