Independent and Fundamental
We are an Independent Fundamental Baptist church
Independent in that we are self-governing and self-propagating. We are not under the control of, nor subject to, any body out side of our membership, including any denomination, convention or association.
Fundamental in that we believe in the fundamentals of the faith. The fundamentals of the faith including but not limited to the following:
- The innerency and inspiration of the Scriptures
- The virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ
- The substitutionary atonement of Christ
- Christ's bodily resurrection
- Christ's bodily return to earth at His second coming.
Baptist in that we adhere to the Baptist Distinctives which are outlined elsewhere on our site.
We further believe the following:
- We believe in the Bible, which is verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit in the original manuscripts and is the infallible and authoritative Word of God. It is the sole authority for the Christian faith and conduct.
- We believe in the Triune Godhead in Three Persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- We believe in the personality of Satan, called the Devil, and his present control over unregenerate mankind.
- We believe in the fall and the lost estate of man, whose sinful nature makes the new birth necessary.
- We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, death, bodily resurrection, present exaltation at Godís right hand, and His personal, imminent, and pre-millennial return.
- We believe in the atonement by the substitutionary death and shed blood of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
- We believe in the resurrection of the saved unto everlasting life and blessedness in heaven.
- We believe the Church is the Body of Christ, consisting only of those who are born again, for whom He now makes intercession in heaven and for whom He shall come again.
- We believe in the resurrection of the unsaved unto everlasting punishment in hell.
- We believe in Christ's great commission to the Church to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, baptizing and teaching those who believe.
