The Bible to be the inerrant, infallible Word of God, plenarily and verbally inspired as well as providentially preserved for us in our King James English translation. We also stand opposed to all modern versions and paraphrases of the Holy Scriptures.
God is one God manifested in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Christ was virgin born, lived a sinless life, and died a substitutionary death.
The Lord Jesus Christ ascended and His return which is imminent, will be personal, visible, pre-millenial, and pre-tribulational.
Man was created by the direct act of God, and man fell into sin by yielding to Satan’s temptation and in direct disobedience to God’s Word.
Sin is universal, and the human race is totally depraved.
Salvation is by grace, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His shed blood. The conditions to salvation are repentance and faith.
The ordinances of the Lord’s Supper and water Baptism by immersion are to administered and practiced by the local church.
The bodies of both the just and the unjust will be raised from the dead. The saved will enjoy a literal heaven forever, and the lost will suffer in a literal hell eternally.
The local Baptist Church is Christ’s ordained institution to preach the Word and to fulfill His commission to take the Gospel to the whole world.
As a Baptist Church, we oppose all fellowship with the charismatic movement, Calvinism, and ecumenical evangelism.
