Our Beliefs

Statement of Faith

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and the New Testament are given by inspiration of God and are our infallible rule of faith and practice.

We believe in one God, eternally existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, and is the Son of God.

We believe that all mankind is, by nature, sinful and in need of Jesus Christ as Savior.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and that all who believe in Him are saved by grace through faith in Him.

We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension to heaven, and in His personal return for His church.

Church Covenant

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God and this assembly, mostly solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love, to strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge, holiness, and comfort, to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines, to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel throughout all nations.

We also engage to maintain as far as possible family and secret devotion; to teach our children the Christian truths; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, exemplary in our deportment, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.

We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay.

We moreover engage that when we remove from this place, we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of the covenant and principles of God’s Word.

Communion: The church comes together at the Lord’s Table the first Sunday of each month to observe communion.  The pastor/speaker leads the service.  Just before the service begins, a benevolent offering is taken for the sole benefit of helping the needy in the community.

Baptism: Water baptism by immersion in the baptistery located above and behind the pulpit is granted to anyone wishing to be baptized who has accepted Christ.  This baptistery is also used by other churches which do not have a baptistery.
