THE BIBLE

The Bible is divinely inspired by God and is completely without error. It is totally true and trustworthy, revealing God's nature, authority, standards and holiness, and is the standard by which all things must be measured. All scripture testifies to Christ,who is the Son of God,Messiah.


God is the one and only God, infinite in holiness, who is the supreme being. He is all powerful and all knowing. God is Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God exists in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, which have always existed.

GOD


Mankind is special creation of God having been made in His own image, created male and female for the purpose of His glory and honor. Because of sin, all men are depraved of righteousness and therefore must be saved by faith in Christ for the forgiveness of sin and eternal life.

MANKIND


Salvation involves the redemption of the whole person and is offered freely to any who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, whom by His own blood has made eternal redemption for the believer.

SALVATION


The Church is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing both ordinances of Christ,the Lord's Supper and Baptism.

THE CHURCH


Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried and risen Savior, the believer's death to self, the burial of his old life, and the resurrection of his new life in Christ.

BAPTISM


Communion is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of Christ's Church, through the taking of the bread and juice of the vine, memorialize the death of Christ and His second coming.
