Doctrinal Beliefs
GOD
      There is one and only one living and true God.  He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe.  God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

SALVATION
     Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.  It involves conviction of sin, repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace.

GOD'S PURPOSE OF GRACE
     Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners.  It is consistent with the free agency of man.  It is the glorious display of God's sovereign goodness.

SECURITY OF THE BELIEVER
     All true believers endure to the end.  Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end.

PRIESTHOOD OF THE BELIEVER
     Every true believer has an equal standing before the throne of God.  There is only one intercessor between God and man, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ.  Thus each true believer may come boldly before the Throne of Grace.

THE CHURCH
     A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel.  Each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord.

THE SCRIPTURES
     The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.
