We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God; therefore, it has absolute authority in matters of faith and practice. We believe in one God eternally existing in three Persons; in the creation of all things, including man, as the direct act of God; in eternally secure salvation by grace through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the incarnation and virgin birth of Christ, and in His bodily resurrection; in the personal, bodily, premillennial return of the Lord Jesus Christ and His millennial reign on earth. We believe in a literal Heaven and a literal Hell, and that Satan is a personal being. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead. We believe in the autonomy of the local church, in baptism by immersion, and in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper by all obedient believers. We stand without apology for the core doctrines of the Christian faith.
