We believe in the plenary, verbal, Divine inspiration of the sixty-six canonical books of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible (from Genesis to Revelation) in the original languages.
We believe in God’s promise to preserve His Word. The Bible says, “Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.” (Psalm 119:152) Also, “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever.” (Psalm 12:6-7)
We believe that the King James Version of the English Bible is a true, faithful, and accurate translation, which in our time has no equal among all of the other English translations. The translators did such a fine job in their translation task that we can without apology hold up the Authorized Version and say, “This is the Word of God!”
We believe there is one God, a living intelligent Spirit, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth, eternally expressing Himself in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17; 1 John 5:7).
We believe that the material universe, including man, came into being by the direct creation of God, and not by evolution.
We believe that man was created sinless (Genesis 1:31), but voluntarily sinned and that because of this fall, all men are sinners by birth and destined for hell (Romans 5:19, 6:23) with no spark of Divinity and must be born from above to be fit for fellowship with God (John 3:3-6).
We further believe that the unsaved will spend eternity in torment in a literal hell (Revelation 20:14-15).
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Ghost of the virgin Mary.
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 4:4-5) and made possible alone through the vicarious death of Jesus Christ upon the cross of Calvary (Isaiah 53:3-4, 10-11; Luke 22:19-20), and there is salvation in none other and that all that is necessary for salvation is an acceptance by faith of His infinite work.
We believe that justification includes pardon from sin (Romans 8:1, 5:9, 8:30-34), the gift of eternal life, and a perfect standing before God, and that a believer cannot ever lose his salvation.
We believe in the sanctity of the home as instituted by God in the garden of Eden, consisting of marriage between one man and one woman (Hebrews 13:4; I Corinthians 7:1-5) united by love and Christian faith, and that this marriage bond is intended by God to be a lifelong commitment that should not be put asunder.
We believe all forms of sexual impurity are an abomination to God (including sodomy, homosexuality, and effeminacy).
We believe that the local church is a congregation of immersed believers (Acts 10:46-47; Romans 6:3-6;1 Peter 3:21) associated by covenant of faith and fellowship in the Gospel (Romans 12; Hebrews 10:23-25); that the local church is answerable only to God, Her administrator, and the Lord Jesus Christ, Her head; and that the will of the local church is sovereign.
We believe there are two church ordinances—baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
We believe in the personal, visible, premillennial return of our Lord and His church
(I Thessalonians 4:13-18).
