Our beliefs are based on God’s revealed Word found in the Holy Scriptures (KJV). Men may have their opinions, but God’s Word must have the final court of appeal in both faith and practice.
Scripture (KJV / Authorised Holy Bible)
The inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God provides the foundation and contours of our beliefs. As such, the Scriptures inform every facet of life and practice (2 Tim. 3:16). Scripture provides the form and content for preaching, worship, and singing.
The Bible (KJV) is God’s self-revelation and states the purpose for which He created us. It also helps us to understand our own hearts of sin and the broken world in which we live because of man’s fall into sin. Through His Word, God has also revealed the way of salvation in Christ to restore sinful human beings into the image of Christ for His glory.
Historically, we stand in the direction of the New Testament church and the ancient church using the three ancient creeds to express our beliefs: the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.
We also subscribe to the Westminster standards as the harvest of Puritan theology from the 17th and 18th centuries: The London Baptist Confession of Faith.
We teach that these beliefs are not only to inform the mind, but they are to touch the heart, affecting the emotions with a deep, abiding love for Christ, His Word, His holiness, and His people. Then too, these beliefs must be evidenced in bearing the fruits of the Spirit (John 15:1-17; Gal. 5:22-25).
