We believe that the Holy Bible, as originally written, was verbally inspired and the product of Spirit controlled men, and therefore is the only infallible rule for all human conduct, creeds and opinions. II Timothy 3:16, 17; II Peter 1:19-21
Jesus was not just a 'great man' or an important teacher. He is the only begotten Son of God. He was miraculously born of a virgin, He was both fully man and fully God. He is co-eternal with the father, as the second person of the trinity. We believe that he died on the cross, was buried, and was resurrected on the third day. John 1:1,2; I John 5:20; Matthew 1:20; Luke 1:26-38
We believe that mankind fell with Adam, so everyone is essentially born into bondage of sin. We cannot save ourselves -- not by good behavior, or feeling spiritual, or force of will. Despite our unworthiness, God loves each of us and wants us to be saved. Romans 5:12, Romans 3:23; John 3:16
Salvation by Grace Alone
We believe that God saves whom he will by His grace. It is not our "goodness" or good deeds which save us. Man cannot earn or accomplish salvation by any work he might do. Only faith in Jesus Christ saves. Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 10:13; John 14:6
Baptism by Immersion
We believe that baptism is a very important public act of obedience for a believer. It is our identification with, and willing submission to Christ. We further believe that the examples given in Scripture and the imagery of death, burial and resurrection used by Paul in Romans call for immersion. Matthew 28:19; John 3:23; Acts 8:39; Romans 6:3-5
There are subtle differences between churches which are otherwise agreed on the fundamentals of the faith.
