The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error for its matter.
There is one and only one living and true God. The eternal Triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
Jesus is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, fully God, fully man, in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever present Lord.
Man was created by the special act of God, in His own image, and is the crowning work of His creation. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and that Christ died for man; therefore, every person of every race possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.
Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who confess Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.
A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local body of born again, baptized believers. These have voluntarily associated with one another by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel. They seek to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of Christ, which includes all the redeemed of all the ages.
Baptism & The Lord's Supper
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior. It symbolizes the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby followers memorialize the death of the Jesus and anticipate His Second Coming.
God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly, the dead will be raised, and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell. The righteous will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.
It is the privilege and responsibility of every follower of Christ, and every church of the Lord Jesus Christ, to endeavor to make disciples of all nations by seeking to win the lost to faith in Christ by personally living and proclaiming the gospel.
God is the source of all temporal and spiritual blessings. All that we have and are, we owe to Him. Christians are to be faithful stewards of all that God has put into our care. This includes our, time, talents, and material possessions, as well as the gospel. These things are to be managed faithfully for meeting personal needs, the needs of others, and ultimately for the sake of God’s Kingdom and His glory. All believers will give an accounting to the Lord for our stewardship of all God has provided us.
