About Us

Our Articles of Faith

  • That the soul is of supreme value and stands accountable to God individually. There is one and only one Mediator, the Lord Jesus Christ. Every member of the Church is equal in the sight of God. We believe the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, Salvation for its end and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter; that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us, and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian Union, and the Supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried. (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; Rom 14:12; 1 Tim 2:5)
  • That there is one and only one, true and living God, The Maker and Supreme Ruler of Heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness; worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; revealed under the personal and relative distinctions of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct, but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (Gen 1:1-17; Is 44:6-8; Heb 2:9-10)
  • We believe that God created man holy and under a law which, had it been obeyed, would have secured for him eternal life; but by voluntary disobedience, he fell from his holy estate, and in consequence, spiritual, temporal, and eternal death has been entailed upon the human race; and that, while there is no way to escape temporal death, there is deliverance from spiritual and eternal death through the saving power of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Gen 1:27; Gen 3:6-24; Rom 5:19; Is 53:6; Eph 2:1-3)
  • We believe that salvation is wholly of grace through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, procured solely by the atonement and righteousness of Christ. (Eph 2:8; Jn 3:16; Is 53:4-5; Heb 7:25)
  • We believe in personal and eternal election according to the everlasting love and purpose of God. (2 Tim 1:8-9; 2 Thess 2:13-14; Rom 8:28-31)
  • We believe that justification is by faith alone; that justification consists in the pardon of sin and the promise of eternal life, on principles of righteousness; that it is bestowed not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done, but solely through His own redemption and righteousness; that it brings us into a state of most blessed peace and favor with God and secures every other blessing needful for time and eternity. (Eph 2:8-9; Gal 2:16; Rom 5:1)
  • That the blessings of salvation are made free to all by the gospel; that it is the immediate duty of all to accept them by a cordial and obedient faith, and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner on earth, except his own voluntary refusal to submit to the Lord Jesus Christ, which refusal will subject him to an aggravated condemnation. (Jn 3:16; Is 55:3-7; Ezek 33:11; Rev 22:17; Jn 5:40)
  • That in order to be saved , we must be regenerated, or born again; that regeneration consists in giving a holy disposition to the mind, and is affected by the power of the Holy Spirit , through the instrumentality of the word of God, so as to secure our voluntary obedience to the gospel, and that its proper evidence is found in the holy fruit which we bring forth to the glory of God; that election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, sanctifies, and saves sinners. (Jn 3:3-8; 2 Thess 2:13; Eph 6:17)
  • We believe in the final perseverance of all the saints. (Jn 8:31; Phil 1:6; Jn 10:27-30)
  • We believe that a visible church is a congregation of baptized believers, united for the purpose of worshipping God, and promoting the cause of true religion, in accordance with the revealed laws and ordinances of the gospel, and that its officers as required by the New Testament are the Bishop or Pastor and Deacons. (1 Cor 1:1-13; Acts 2:41-42; 1 Cor 11:2; Matt 28:19-20; Phil 1:1-27)
  • We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion in water of a believer in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matt 28:19; Acts 8:36; Rom 6:4; Acts 2:41-42)
  • We believe that the Lord’s Supper was instituted in holy remembrance of Christ, “to show for the Lord’s death till he comes;” that it is purely a church ordinance, in which none should participate who have not been admitted into a church by Christian baptism. (1 Cor 11:26-28; Acts 2:41-42; Matt 28:19)
  • That every church is independent in matters of discipline; and that associations, councils, and conferences of several ministers or churches, are not to impose on the churches, the keeping, holding, or maintaining of any principle or practice contrary to the church’s judgment. (Acts 20:28; Acts 15:22)
  • That the first day of the week is the Lord’s Day, or Christian Sabbath, and is to be kept sacred to religious purposes. (Acts 15:21; Acts 20:7; Jn 20:19)
  • That the end of this world is approaching; and at the last day, Christ will descend from Heaven and raise the dead from the grave to final retribution; and that a solemn separation will then take place; that the wicked will be adjudged to endless punishment, and the righteous to endless joy; and that this judgment will fix forever the final state of all people in heaven or hell. (Matt 24:30; 2 Cor 5:10; Matt 25:46)
