We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are given by
inspiration of God, are without error in the original writings and are the only
infallible rule of faith and practice. 2 Tim. 3:16,17; 1 Th. 2:13; 2 Pet.
We believe in one God—the Creator and Ruler of the universe, existing in a
divine and incomprehensible Trinity—the Father; the Son, Jesus Christ; and the
Holy Spirit—each possessing divine perfection. 2 Cor. 13:14; Mt. 28:19; Jn.
14:26, 15:26; 1 Pet. 1:2
We believe that our first parents were created holy and upright, that they
fell from this condition, and that in consequence the whole human race is by
nature dead in trespasses and sins. Rom. 5:12; Gen. 1:27,28,31; Eccl. 7:29;
We believe in the Incarnation, death, and bodily resurrection of the Son of
God; and that salvation is attained only through repentance and faith in Him.
Jn. 1:1-14; 1 Cor. 15:3,4; Acts 4:10-12
believe in the necessity of a radical change of heart and that this is effected
through the truth by the agency of the Holy Spirit. Jn. 3:3, 1 Pet. 1:23; Ti.
We believe that the Christian is called with a holy calling to walk not after
the flesh, but after the Spirit. Because he has become a new creation in Christ
Jesus and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, yet during his earthly pilgrimage
never delivered from the flesh with its fallen nature, he must be in constant
subjection to Christ and His commandments by the power of the Holy Spirit. 2
Cor. 5:17; Gal. 5:22,23; Jn. 15:10
We believe that only those should be admitted to membership in the visible
church who have experienced a change of heart. Jn. 3:5; cf. 1 Cor. 5:6-12
We believe that the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, together
with the observance of the Lord’s Day, are of perpetual obligation in the
church. Recognizing both immersion and affusion as valid, we leave the
determination of the mode of adult baptism to the candidate. Provision shall
always be made for the baptism or dedication of infants of believers. Mt.
28:19; 1 Cor. 11:24-26; Ex. 31:16,17, with Mt. 5:17,18
We believe in the resurrection of the dead and future judgments from which
the righteous go away into everlasting life and the wicked into everlasting
punishment. Dan. 12:2; Mt. 25:31-46; Rev. 20:11-15; 21:26,27
We believe in the personal bodily return of Christ in power and great glory
as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and in Christ’s ultimate and complete
triumph and the establishment of “new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth
righteousness.” Acts 1:11; 2 Pet. 3:10-13; Rev. 19:16, 21:1-7
