1. The Holy Scriptures:
We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
2. The Eternal Godhead:
We believe God is the triune: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:1-3)
3. The Fall of Man:
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from innocence and purity (Romans 5:12)
4. The Plan of Salvation:
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on him (John 3:16)
5. The New Birth:
We believe that change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is very real (2 Corinthians 5:17)
6. Baptism and the Lord's Supper:
We believe that Baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Acts 8:38-39 and Matthew 3:1-6). We believe in the commemoration of the Lord's supper by the symbolic use of the bread and juice (1 Corinthians 11:24-25)
7. The Gifts and fruits of the Spirit:
We believe that the holy spirit has gifts to bestow upon the believer, and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a spirit filled life. (1 Corinthians 12:1-11 and Galatians 5:22)

We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick and answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16)

(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
We believe that heaven is the glorius eternal home of the born-again believer (John 14:1-3 and Revelation 7:15-17)
We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who rejects Christ as the Savior (Revelation 20:10-15)
We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the church (James 5:20)

We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of his cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10 and 2 Corinthians 9:7)
