We believe in the virgin birth as well as the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; we believe he was God in the flesh. (Isa. 7:14) (Jhn. 10:30) (Luk. 1:31-35)

We believe the only atonement for sins is through the shed blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (Act. 4:12) (Heb. 9:11-15) (I Pet. 1:19,20) 

We believe in the total depravity of man in that he cannot come to Christ without the drawing force of the Father in Heaven. (Jhn. 6:44) (I Cor. 2:14) (Rom. 8:7,8)

We believe regeneration and conversion to be a simultaneous occurrence as a result of the Holy Spirit using the spoken or written word. (II Ths. 2:13,14) (Heb. 4:2) (I Cor. 1:21)

We believe salvation to be totally by the pure grace, or unmerited favor, of God. (Jonah 2:9) ( Eph. 2:8,9) (II Tim. 1:9)

We believe that Jesus instituted His church during His personal ministry on earth. (Mat. 16:18) (Mar. 3:13-19)

We believe in a local church; not an invisible, universal church. (Act. 14:23) (I Cor. 14:33) (I Ths. 1:1)

We believe in the absolute and eternal sovereignty of God; we believe, presently and in the hereafter, all things will glorify God; everything from His saints, who will be with Him, to those who will spend eternity in the lake of fire, glory be to God. (Dan. 4:35) (Ps. 76:10) (Is 42:8) (Jud. 25) Rev. 4:11)
