1. We believe that the Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God, a divine, supernatural revelation. We believe in the plenary, verbal inspiration of the original writings of the Scriptures, and that as thus given they were wholly without error of any kind. II Tim. 3:16, 17; II Peter 1:20, 21.

  2. We believe in the Trinity of the Godhead; one God eternally existing in three persons--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Matt. 28:19.

  3. We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true Man. Matt. 1:23; Lk. 1:35.

  4. We believe that man was created in the image of God; he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and all human beings are born with a sinful nature. Rom. 3:23; Gen. 1:26; Isa. 53:6, Ps. 51:5.

  5. We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a substitutionary sacrifice; and all who believe in Him are justified by God, once and forever, in view of His shed blood. I John 2:2; Heb. 9:12; Eph. 2:8,9; John 1:12.

  6. We believe in the bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven, and personal, premillennial and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. Lk. 24:39; Acts 1:11.

  7. We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. We believe in the personality of the Holy Spirit and that His ministry is to reveal Christ to men, to convict of sin, to regenerate repentant sinners and, by His presence and power, to sanctify the lives of the redeemed. John 3:3; John 1:12, 13; I Peter 1:23; John 16:8; I Peter 1:2, Rom. 8:26,27,28; John 14:16.

  8. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost. Rev. 20: 12-15; Matt. 25:46; John 3:36.

  9. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of the believer in water to show forth as an act of obedience in a solemn and beautiful emblem of our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, with its effect in our death to sin, and resurrection to a new life; that it is a prerequisite to the privileges of church membership. Rom. 6:4,5; John 3:23; Acts 8:38.

  10. We believe that the Lord's Supper is to be observed in obedience to Jesus' command and is the commemoration of His death until He comes, and should be preceded always by self-examination, remembering we are new creations, separated unto God from the things of the world, the flesh and devil, to live a victorious Christian life. II Cor. 11:27-29.
