Our Beliefs

Baptist Distinctives

Biblical Authority

The Bible is the only and sufficient authority for faith and practice (II Timothy 3:16,17).

Autonomy of the Local Church

Each local church is sovereign in and of itself and cannot be controlled by any board, hierarchical system, or another church (I Timothy 3:15; Acts 15) and has the responsibility for electing its own officers (Acts 6:1-7), sending out missionaries (Acts 13:1-4; 14:26,27) and exercising final authority in disciplinary matters (Matthew 18:15-18; I Corinthians 5:1-5; II Thessalonians 3:14,15).

Priesthood of Believers

Every “born again” believer may pray without human intercessor directly to God through our High Priest Jesus Christ (I Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 4:14-16; Revelation 1:5,6).

Two Ordinances

Believer’s Baptism – Baptism of a believer by immersion is a step of obedience which identifies him with Christ’s death, burial and resurrection (Acts 2:41,42; Romans 6:3,4); Lord’s Supper – This ordinance was instituted by the Lord as a memorial to His death which is to be practiced by believers until His return (Matthew 26:26-30; Acts 2:41-43; I Corinthians 11:25,26). These ordinances are not to be administered or partaken of apart from the local church.

Individual Soul Liberty

Every man has the right to interpret the Scriptures, to hold, profess, and worship as he believes the Bible teaches (John 16:12,13; I John 2:27); that these things are not to be forced upon any man and that all must give account to the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 14:10-12; II Corinthians 5:10).

Saved Church Membership

The membership of a New Testament local church is to consist of only those who have openly confessed Jesus Christ as Savior, demonstrated a willingness to obey the teachings of the Bible and agree to the doctrine and standards of the local church (Acts 2:41, 47).

Two Offices

There are only two offices in the local church that are recognized and required by the Bible, pastor (Philippians 1:1; I Timothy 3:1-6; Titus 1:6-9) and deacon (Acts 6:2-7; Philippians 1:1; I Timothy 3:7-13).

Separation of Church and State

Every believer should respect, sustain and pray for civil authority (Romans 13:1-7; I Timothy 2:1-6; Titus 3:1; I Peter 2:13-17), and should obey it so long as it does not cause violation to conscience or Scriptural convictions (Acts 5:29). There should be no organic union of church and state; but the state should protect, not dominate nor interfere with the affairs of the church (Matthew 22:21).

Additionally

Eternal Security – Every believer has been saved and will continue to be saved because of the redeeming work of Christ “Once saved, always saved!” (John 10:27-30; Ephesians 1:13; 4:30).

Separation of the Believer and Church from the world and from compromise:
We believe that the doctrine of biblical separation is crucial in order to maintain the purity and testimony of each believer and local church; that it is founded upon the very character of God whose holiness involves both majestic transcendence and moral purity (Isaiah 6:1-5; 57:15; Psalm 99:1-3); that it is continually affirmed by example throughout the Old and New Testaments; that it is two-fold, “from” the world and “unto” the Lord; that this truth applies to believers personally (Romans 12:12; Ephesians 1:4; I Peter 1:15,16) and to churches and religious institutions organizationally; and that it extends to both unbelievers – liberals, modernists, neo-orthodox, cultists, etc. (Matthew 7:15; Romans 16:17; II Corinthians 6:14, 17; I Timothy 6:5; II John 10,11) and to Christians who walk disorderly, i.e. are doctrinally careless or who are content to walk with those who deny the faith (II Thessalonians 3:6,14; I Timothy 1:18-20).

Statement of Faith

The True God

We believe (A) that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, whose name is JEHOVAH, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of Heaven and Earth; (B) inexpressibly glorious in holiness, (C) worthy of all possible honor, confidence, and love; (D) that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; (E) equal in every divine perfection, (F) and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the work of redemption.

Explanatory Notes:

1. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Ghost in a miraculous manner; born of Mary, a virgin, as no other man was ever born or can ever be born of woman and that He is both perfect God and perfect man, the Son of God and God the Son. Genesis 3:15, Psalm 2:7; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; Mark 1:1; Luke 1:35; John 1:14; I Corinthians 15:47; Galatians 4:4; I John 5:20.

2. We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person; equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature; that He was active in the creation of the universe, without the use of pre-existent material, and apart from any process of evolution whatsoever; that in His relation to the unbelieving world He restrains the Evil One until God’s purpose is fulfilled; that He convicts of sin, of judgment and righteousness; that He bears witness to the truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony; that He is the agent in the new birth; that He seals, baptizes, empowers, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies and helps the believer in accordance with the Scriptures. Genesis 1:1-3; Matthew 3:11; 28:19; Mark 1:8; Luke 1:35; 3:16; 24:49; John 1:33; 3:5,6; 14:16-26; 15:25-27; 16:8-13; Acts 5:30-32; 11:16; Romans 8:14-27; Ephesians 1:13, 14; II Thessalonians 2:7,13; Hebrews 9:14; I Peter 1:2.

The Scriptures

We believe (A) that the Holy Bible was written by divinely inspired men and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; (B) has God for its author and salvation for its end; (C) is without any mixture of error for its matter; (D) reveals the principles by which God will judge us; (E) shall remain to the end of the world the true center of Christian union; and (F) is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds and opinions should be tried.

The Fall Of Man

We believe (A) that man was created in holiness, in the image of God, under the law of his Maker; (B) but by voluntary transgression fell from that holy and happy state; (C) in consequences of which all mankind are now sinners, (D) not by constraint, but choice; (E) being by nature utterly void of that holiness required by the law of God, positively inclined to evil; and therefore under just condemnation to eternal ruin, (F) without defense or excuse.

The Way Of Salvation

We believe (A) that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace; (B) through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God; (C) who by the appointment of the Father, freely took upon Him our nature, yet without sin; (D) honored the divine law by His personal obedience, (E) and by His death made a full atonement for our sins; (F) that having risen from the dead, He is now enthroned in Heaven (G) and uniting in His wonderful Person the tenderest sympathies with Divine perfections, He is every way qualified to be a suitable, a compassionate, and an all sufficient Savior.

Justification

We believe (A) that the great gospel blessing which Christ secures to such as believe in Him is Justification; (B) that Justification includes the pardon of sin; (C) and the promise of eternal life on principles of righteousness; (D) that it is bestowed, not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done, but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood; (E) by virtue of which faith His perfect righteousness is freely imputed to us of God, (F) that it brings us into a state of most blessed peace and favor with God; and (G) secures every other blessing needful for time and eternity.

G.Matthew 6:33; Romans 5:1-3; I Corinthians 1:30, 31; I Timothy 4:8.

The Freeness Of Salvation

We believe (A) that the blessings of salvation are made free to all by the Gospel; (B) that it is the immediate duty of all to accept them by a cordial, penitent, and obedient faith; (C) and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner on earth but his own inherent depravity and voluntary rejection of the Gospel, (D) which rejection involves him in an aggravated condemnation.

Grace In Regeneration

We believe (A) that, in order to be saved, sinners must be regenerated or born again; (B) that regeneration consists in giving a holy disposition to the mind; (C) that it is affected, in a manner above our comprehension, by the power of the Holy Spirit in connection with divine truth; (D) so as to secure our voluntary obedience to the Gospel; (E) and that its proper evidence appears in the holy fruits of repentance and faith and newness of life.

Repentance & Faith

We believe (A) that Repentance and Faith are sacred duties and inseparable graces wrought in our souls by the regenerating Spirit of God; (B) whereby, being deeply convinced of our guilt, danger and helplessness, and of the way of salvation by Christ; (C) we turn to God with unfeigned contrition, confession and supplication for mercy; (D) at the same time heartily receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as our Prophet, Priest and King, and relying upon Him alone as the only and all-sufficient Saviour.

God’s Purpose Of Grace

We believe (A) that Election is the eternal purpose of God, according to which He graciously regenerates, sanctifies and saves sinners; (B) that being perfectly consistent with the free agency of man, it comprehends all the means in connection with the end; (C) that it is a most glorious display of God’s sovereign goodness being infinitely free, wise, holy and unchangeable; (D) that it utterly excludes boasting and promotes humility, love, prayer, praise, trust in God and active imitation of His free mercy; (E) it encourages the use of means in the highest degree; (F) that it may be ascertained by its effects in all who truly believe the Gospel; (G) that it is the foundation of Christian assurance; (H) and that to ascertain it with regard to ourselves demands and deserves the utmost diligence.

Sanctification

A Gospel Church

We believe (A) that a visible church of Christ is a congregation of baptized believers associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the Gospel; (B) observing the teachings of Christ; (C) governed by His laws; and (D) exercising the gifts, rights and privileges invested in them by His Word; (E) that its only Scriptural officers are Bishops or Pastors and Deacons, whose qualifications, claims and duties are defined in the Epistles to Timothy and Titus.

The Law & The Gospel

We believe the Scriptures teach that the Law of God is (A) the eternal and unchangeable rule of His moral government; (B) that it is holy, just and good; (C) and that the inability which the Scriptures ascribe to fallen men to fulfill its precepts arises entirely from their sinful nature; (D) to deliver them from which and to restore them through a mediator to unfeigned obedience to the Holy Law, is one great end of the Gospel and of the Means of Grace connected with the establishment of the visible Church.

The Ordinances — Baptism & The Lord’s Supper

We believe that Christian baptism is (A) the immersion in water of a believer; (B) into the name of the Father, and Son, and Holy Ghost; (C) to show forth in a solemn and beautiful emblem, our faith in the crucified, buried and risen Saviour with its effect in our death to sin and resurrection to a new life; (D) that it is prerequisite to the privileges of a Church relation; (E) and the Lord’s Supper in which the saints by the use of bread and the cup are to commemorate together the dying love of Christ (F) preceded always by solemn self-examination.

The Lord’s Day

We believe that the first day of the week is the Lord’s Day and is to be kept sacred for Christian purposes by abstaining from all secular labor, except works of mercy and necessity, by the devout observance of all the means of grace, both private and public; and by preparation for that rest that remaineth for the people of God.

Civil Government

We believe (A) that civil government is of divine appointment, for the interest and good order of human society; (B) and that magistrates are to be prayed for, conscientiously honored and obeyed; (C) except only in things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ; (D) who is the only Lord of conscience, and the Prince of the kings of the earth.

D. Psalms 2; 72:11; Matthew 23:10; Romans 14:4, 9-13; Revelation 19:16.

The Righteous & The Wicked

We believe (A) that there is a radical and essential difference between the righteous and the wicked; (B) that such only as through faith are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and sanctified by the Spirit of God are truly righteous in His esteem; (C) while all such as continue in impenitence and unbelief are, in His sight wicked and under the curse; and (D) this distinction holds among men both in and after death.

Angels, Fallen & Unfallen

We believe that God created an innumerable company of sinless, spiritual beings known as angels; that one, “Lucifer, son of the morning” – the highest in rank – sinned through pride, thereby becoming Satan; that a great company of the angels followed him in his moral fall, some of whom became demons and are active as his agents and associates in the prosecution of his unholy purposes, while others who fell are “reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day”.

*Isaiah 14:12-17; Ezekiel 28:11-19; I Timothy 3:6; II Peter 2:4;Jude 6.

We believe that Satan is the originator of sin and that, under the permission of God he, through subtlety, led our first parents into transgression, thereby accomplishing their moral fall and subjecting them and their posterity to his own power; that he is the enemy of God and the people of God opposing and exalting himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped; and that he who in the beginning said, “I will be like the most High,” in his warfare appears as an angel of light even counterfeiting the works of God by fostering religious movements and systems of doctrine, which systems in every case are characterized by a denial of the efficacy of the blood of Christ and of salvation by grace alone.

*Genesis 3:1-19; Romans 5:12-14; I Corinthians 4:3,4; 11:13-15; Ephesians 6:10-12; II Thessalonians 2:4;
I Timothy 4:1-3.

We believe that Satan was judged at the cross, though not then executed and that he, a usurper, now rules as the “god of this world;” that, at the second coming of Christ Satan will be bound and cast into the abyss for a thousand years and after the thousand years he will be loosed for a little season and then “cast into the lake of fire and brimstone” where he “shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

*Colossians 2:15; Revelation 20:1-3,10

We believe that a great company of angels kept their holy estate and are before the throne of God from whence they are sent forth as ministering spirits to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation.

*Luke 15:10; Ephesians 1:21; Hebrews 1:14; Revelation 7:11,12

We believe that man was made lower than the angels; and that, in His incarnation, Christ took for a little time this lower place that He might lift the believer to His own sphere above the angels.

*Hebrews 2:6-10.

We believe in and accept the sacred Scriptures upon these subjects at their face and full value. We believe (A) that our Lord Jesus Christ rose bodily from the tomb on the third day; (B) and He ascended into Heaven; (C) that He is now at the right hand of God the Father as our only sufficient mediator and advocate. (D) We believe in the personal, imminent, premillennial coming of Christ for the Church; (E) the resurrection and physical glorification of the saints; (F) the great tribulation; (G) after which He will return with His saints to this earth where He will sit on the throne of David and shall subdue all enemies and reign in righteousness for a thousand years. (H) After this shall be the judgment of the Great White Throne when the unsaved dead shall be raised and judged, that this will result for them in eternal punishment in the lake of fire, which is the second death; and (I) that the saved shall then enjoy eternal glory with God.
