What We Believe

We believe the whole bible and accept nothing but the Bible as the guide in matters of faith and practice. (Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 6:46; II Timothy 3:15-17).

We believe in One Lord, One Faith and One Baptism. (Ephesians. 4:5).

We believe that salvation is wholly of God, (John 1; 12,13), that we are saved by grace and not works, (Ephesians 2:8,9), and the two conditions of salvation are Repentance and Faith.

We believe in a regenerated membership. (John 2; 3; Acts 2:41,47).

We believe the Baptist Church has a Spiritual head and founder. Christ is its only head and he has founded only one church (Matthew 16:18; Colossians 1:18).

We believe that Christ, the head of the church is the only begotten Son of God, both accepted and requested baptism at the hand of John the Baptist (Matthew 3:13-15), who was prepared in Heaven, (Luke 1:44), for this sublime task, and sent from God. (John 1:6).

We believe and promote the rights of the individual; first we may seek God for ourselves. (Acts 17:27) second everyone must repent for himself. (Acts 17:30); third everyone must confess for himself, (Romans 10:9, 10); fourth everyone must report to God for himself. (Romans 14:11,12)

We believe in the democracy of the church (every member equal). (Matthew 20:24-28; Matt 23:5-8).

We believe the Baptist Ministers (Whether called Pastors or Bishops) are equal in rank and are never to be called Master or Father (Pope). (Matt 23:8-12).

We believe and accept as church ordinances only those things ordered by Jesus Christ which symbolize the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, namely; Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. (Romans 6:3-5; I Corinthians 11:23-26), that the quotation “Let a man examine himself and so let him eat…” is a statement addressed to a church and has no reference to Non-Christians and Non Church members I Corinthians 11:28).

We believe that the salvation of God is eternal. (John 3:14-18; 10:28-31; Romans 8:1; 33:39; Hebrews 11:13,32-33).

We believe in the second coming of Christ (Acts 1: 11); the immortality of the human soul (Genesis 2:7; I Corinthians 15:53-55); the resurrection of the body (Corinthians 15:44); the final judgment of a just God (Matthew 25:41-46); and the never ending punishment of sinners and the eternal bliss of the saints (Matthew 25:34-46).
