Core Beliefs


We believe in the personal triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, equal in divine perfection.

Matthew 28:19


We believe in the virgin birth, the sinless humanity, and the deity of Jesus Christ. We believe the suffering and death of Jesus Christ was substitutionary for all mankind and is effective only to those who believe. We believe in the bodily resurrection and ascension of Christ and the bodily resurrection of His saints.

Isaiah 53:6; 1 Peter 3:18; Matthew 28:1-7; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Matthew 1-18-20; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:22; John 10:30; John 1:1; 2 Corinthians 5:19



We believe the Holy Spirit is the divine administrator for Jesus Christ in His churches. We believe that miraculous spiritual manifestation gifts were done away with the completion of the Bible.

Luke 24:49; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:4-8; Acts 2:1-4; 1 Corinthians 12-14



We believe in the infallible, verbal inspiration of the whole Bible and that the Bible is the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice.​

Psalm 119:160; 2 Timothy 3:16-17



We believe the man was created in the image of God and lived in innocence until he fell by voluntary transgression from his sinless state, resulting in the sinfulness of all mankind.

Genesis 1:26; Genesis 3:6-24; Romans 5:12



We believe the depraved sinner is saved completely by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that all who trust in Jesus Christ for salvation are eternally secure in Him and shall not perish.​

John 3:36; John 5:24; John 10:27-30; Romans 8:35-39; Hebrews 10:39; 1 Peter 1:5; Luke 13:3-5; John 3:16-18; Acts 20:21; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9 ​



We believe that Jesus established His church during His earthly ministry and that it is always a local, visible assembly of scripturally baptized believers in covenant relationship to carry out the Great Commission. Each church is an independent, self-governing body, and no other ecclesiastical body may exercise authority over it.

Matthew 4:18-22; Matthew 16:18; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 1:14-20; John 1:35-51; Ephesians 3:21



We believe there are two pictorial ordinances in the Lord’s churches: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Scriptural baptism is the immersion of penitent believers in water, administered by the authority of a New Testament church in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial ordinance, restricted to the members of the church observing the ordinance.

Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 8:12; Romans 6:4; 1 Corinthians 5:11-13, 1 Corinthians 11:1-2, 17-26
