      Personal Testimony

Beliefs

Concerning the Scriptures

      We believe that the Bible, sixty-six books in the Old and New Testaments, is the verbally inspired and inerrant Word of God and is the supreme and final authority for both faith and practice ( I Timothy 3:15-17; I Peter 1:19-21).
      We believe that to correctly interpret the Scripture, one must recognize the dispensational framework of Scripture. This acknowledges that God has progressively revealed Himself to man throughout history. Man’s responsibilities have varied with each new revelation given (Exodus 6:3;
I Corinthians 9:1 7; Colossians 1:25; Ephesians 3:2, 9, 11; I Timothy 1:4; Hebrews 1:1, 2; 7:12; 11).

 

Concerning the Godhead

      We believe that within the unity of the Godhead there are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19), equal in both essence and divine perfection, but distinct in work (Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 6:3; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; 14:7-12; I Corinthians 13:14). 
 

God the Father

      We believe that there is only one perfect, living, holy and true God (Deuteronomy 6:4, 5). He is an infinite Spirit, the supreme Ruler of the universe and worthy of all worship (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1-4; I Corinthians 8:6; Revelation 4: 9-11).
 

Jesus Christ

      We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God (Philippians 2:5-8), conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary (Matthew 1:18-20; Luke 1:35; John 1:1, 2, 14,18).
      We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice and rose from the dead (Matthew 28:5, 6). His literal, physical resurrection guarantees both our redemption and salvation (I Corinthians 15:12-19; 1 John 2:1, 2). We believe He ascended bodily into heaven  (Acts 1: 9), and there lives for us as High Priest and Intercessor (Hebrews 4:14-16; 7:23-25; 9:24).
 

The Holy Spirit

      We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person (Acts 5:1-5; I Corinthians 3:16-18; 6:19 20). He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; bears witness to the truth; is the agent of the new birth; guides, teaches, assists and sanctifies the believer; indwells them permanently, seals them unto the day of redemption, bestows spiritual gifts, and fills for service those yielded to Him (John 3:8; 14:16, 17; 16:7-15;         Ephesians 4:30; 5:18).
      We believe that the spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit of apostleship, prophecy, tongues, healing, and revelation were temporary and are not to be expected today (I Corinthians 12:4-13; 13:8-11). The Holy Spirit testifies of Jesus Christ and never leads any person, at any time, contrary to the true
teaching of the Bible (John 14:16, 17; 15:26-27).
 

Concerning the Sinful Nature of Man

      We believe that God created man in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26). When Adam sinned, the human race fell and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, separating man from God (Genesis 3:1-24; Romans 3:9-23; 5:12). Henceforth, all mankind is born with a sinful nature (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Galatians 3:22; Ephesians 2:1-6, 12) and is therefore under just condemnation to eternal ruin in a literal hell without defense or excuse before God (John 3:18, 19; Romans 1:20; Revelation 20:15).
 

Concerning Salvation

      We believe that through Christ’s shed blood on the cross (John 14:6; I Peter 1:18, 19) God has both initiated and provided salvation from the consequences of sin (John 3:16; Romans 6:23). It is universally available to all mankind with no imitations whatsoever (I John 2:2) so that all who personally receive Him by faith become saved (Romans 10:13; John 3:4-8; 16:8). Consequently, the sinner is made alive spiritually and is reconciled to God’s favor, thereby becoming a saint (John 3:16, 36; Romans 5:1, 2, 10; 8:1; 10:9-10).
      We believe that regeneration, or the new birth, is that transformation in man’s nature by the Holy Spirit. A new nature and spiritual life, not before possessed, are imparted, making the person a new creation in Christ Jesus (John 3: 3-6; I Corinthians 5: 17; Titus 3: 5; I Peter 1: 23).
      We believe that from the moment of regeneration the salvation of every believer is secure for all eternity. This security is guaranteed to each believer and is kept by the power of God (John 5:24; 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 29, 30, 38, 39; Ephesians 1:13, 14; 4:30). 
 

Concerning the Local Church

      We believe that a New Testament church is a voluntary and independent autonomous group of baptized believers who form a spiritual body with Christ as the Head (Colossians 1:18, 24). They assemble for worship, service, fellowship, discipline, prayer, teaching, testimony, the observance of the ordinances and the spread of the Gospel into all the world. (Acts 2:42-47; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8). Each congregation recognizes its own democratic self containing government for carrying out the will of the Lord Jesus Christ (Revelation 2:3; Colossians 3:15,16; Acts 20:17;I Corinthians 3:10-1 7; 12:12-2 7; 5:1-5; 11:2).
      We believe that every believer has the responsibility to join with and be faithful to the program of a New Testament local church. While the church depends on individual believers for prayer, support and work, the individual depends upon the church and its ministries for Spiritual nourishment, fellowship and the opportunity to exercise their Spiritual gifts (Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:3-8; I Corinthians 12:4-31; 16:2;
Hebrews 10:19-25; 13:17).
      We believe that the officers of the church are limited to pastor and deacons and are to be filled by Scripturally qualified men of God
(I Timothy 2:12; 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9).
 

Concerning Baptists

      We believe that the name “Baptist” is a historical distinction (rather than Biblical) and that they have stood for the same following principles we dearly espouse:
  1. Baptism by immersion after salvation.
    2. Regenerated church membership.
    3. Autonomous church government.
    4. Priesthood of the believers.
    5. Soul Liberty.
    6. Ecclesiastical and ethical separation.
    7. Separation of church and state.
    8. The Bible is the only standard for faith and practice.
 
 
 

Worship

     In John 4:24 we are directed to “worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” Our understanding is that worship is a response to who God is. Hence, the musical selections sung before the Lord and His people will be Scripturally accurate (II Timothy 3:16,17) in order to “worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness” (Psalm 29:2). When we assemble together as a church body, we corporately worship with intentional purpose, seeking to glorify, honor, and praise God through every part of the church service.
