  • The entire Bible is the perfect, divinely inspired Word of God. Psalm 19:7-82 Timothy 3:16-17

  • All mankind is conceived (born) with a sinful, fallen nature. Romans 3:9-10,23
  • We are unable to save ourselves. Isaiah 64:6
  • In order to be accepted of God, we must all be born again spiritually through faith in Christ. John 3:3-7

  • Only the perfect, shed blood of Jesus Christ can serve as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Hebrews 9:24-28; Hebrews 10:4-221 Peter 1:18-21
  • Salvation is a free gift of God received only through faith in Christ and not by works. Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9
  • All those who repent of their sins and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior will be saved. John 3:16-18; Romans 10:13

We Believe in and Teach the Doctrine of Biblical Separation:

  • As much as possible, believers should separate themselves from those who practice sinful behaviors. 1 John 1:1-7
  • Believers should not marry unbelievers. 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

We Believe in and Teach Observance of the Divine Ordinances of Water Baptism and Partaking of the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion) for Believers in Christ:

  • Water baptism is a physical representation of the believer’s spiritual regeneration.

  • Christ Himself will return for His church at the sound of the last trumpet. 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18

  • Satan is a fallen spiritual being (Lucifer) who was created by God.
  • Satan’s goal is to be like God.
  • Satan is the father of lies.
  • Satan is known as the god of this present, evil world.
  • Satan is the leader of a demonic spiritual army known as the powers of darkness.
  • Satan is the great enticer and deceiver.
