THE BIBLE:  We believe that the bible is the divinely and especially inspired Word of God; that it is the guide for faith and practice of Christians; and that it is the final authority in all spiritual matters.  2 Timothy 3: 16-17; 2 Peter 1:21.

SIN:  We believe that through Adam, as well as by their own volition, all have sinned and need a Savior.  Romans 3:23; Romans 5:17-19.

SALVATION:  We believe that salvation comes by the grace of God after repentance and through the new birth, which is experienced by exercising personal faith in the vicarious death of Jesus Christ.  We further believe in the freeness of salvation to all who will believe.  Ephesians 2:8; John 3:3, Romans 6:8 and Revelation 22:17.

THE GODHEAD:   We believe in the Holy Trinity - God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, each co-equal and eternal.  1 John 5:7; 1 Timothy 2:5 and John 1:1-4.

THE PERSON OF CHRIST:  We believe in the miraculous virgin birth of Jesus as set forth in the Gospels and that He was Deity incarnate.            Matthew 1:18; John 14:11.

THE ORDINANCES:  We believe that the Ordinances of a New Testament Church are Baptism and the Lord's Supper; that Baptism is symbolic and rightly observed only when the candidate is immersed in water; that the Lord's Supper should be observed only as a memorial of the suffering and death of our Lord Jesus Christ; and that only those who have been baptized scripturally should partake of it.  Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 26:28; Romans 6:4 and 1 Corinthians 11:25-26.

THE GOSPEL CHURCH:  We believe that the New Testament Church is a body of baptized believers banded together in a spiritual democracy; that each congregation is autonomous; and that Christ and He alone is the Head of the Church.  We believe that Christ commanded His Church to "go into all the world and preach the Gospel".  We believe that this command is ours to obey.  Acts 2:41; Colossians 1:18; Matthew 28:19-20.

THE SECOND ADVENT:  We believe that in the "hour which ye think not" Christ will make His personal and visible return.  1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.

MARRIAGE:  We believe that the word "marriage" means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word "spouse" refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.  Mark 10:6-9.

As a Southern Baptist Church we also adhere to The Baptist Faith and Mesage - A Statement Adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention June 14, 2000.
