A warm hand-shake and a friendly smile from people who really do love God and love others. We are far from perfect but being perfected in Christ. In our music we seek to be relevent to our culture, yet uncompromising in our reverence for our holy God. We enjoy singing with literally thousands of saints from days gone by the traditional hymns of the faith, yet we appreciate the modern songs that God has inspired men and women to write, although our presentation of the song is usually tempered. Ultimately, our hunger and thirst is for the Word of God, that if heeded to will produce sustainable growth for generations to come. Therefore, everything in most all of our services climaxes with the preaching of the Bible.
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God, and are our only infallible rule of faith and practice. These Scriptures are inerrant and fully preserved for us today.
There is one living and true God, revealed in nature as the Creator, Preserver, and Righteous Governor of the universe; and in the Scriptures as the Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh (John 1:1, 14; I Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 1:8); in His divine nature truly God, in His human nature truly man. The Son of God by His incarnation, life, sufferings, death, and resurrection effected for all a redemption from sin that is full and free, and is the ground for salvation by faith.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Scriptures assign to the Holy Spirit all the attributes of God. The Spirit indwells all believers at the moment of conversion.
THE SINFULLNESS OF MAN
Man was created innocent, but by disobedience fell into a state of sin and condemnation. His posterity, therefore, inherit a fallen nature of such tendencies that all who come to years of accountability, sin and become guilty before God.
THE TERMS OF SALVATION
The conditions of salvation are: (a) Repentance or sincere sorrow for sin and hearty renunciation of it. (b) Faith or the unreserved committal of one's self to Christ as Savior and Lord with purpose to love and obey Him in all things. In the exercise of saving faith, the soul is renewed by the Holy Spirit, freed from the dominion of sin, and becomes a child of God. (c) Continuance in faith and obedience until death.
ELECTION OF GOD
God determined from the beginning to save all who should comply with the conditions of salvation. Hence by faith in Christ men become His elect.
FREEDOM OF THE WILL
The human will is free and self-controlled, having power to yield to the influence of the truth and the Spirit, or to resist them and perish.
God desires the salvation of all, the Gospel invites all, the Holy Spirit strives with all, and whosoever will may come and take of the water of life freely.
All believers in Christ, who through grace persevere in faith and holiness to the end of life, have promise of eternal salvation.
Baptism, the Lord's Supper, and Feet Washing are ordinances to be perpetuated under the Gospel. Baptism is the immersion of believers in water. The Lord's Supper is a remembrance of the shed blood and broken body of the Lord Jesus. Feet Washing teaches humility and the need for spiritual cleansing.
God commanded tithes and offerings in the Old Testament; Jesus Christ endorsed it in the Gospel (Matthew 23:23), and the apostle Paul said, "Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him" (I Corinthians 16:2).
THE LORD'S DAY
The divine law requires that one day in seven be set apart from secular employments and amusements for rest, worship, holy works and activities, and for personal communion with God.
Jesus commanded the Church to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. Each local church should seek to win their "Jerusalem" (Acts 1:8) and support efforts of evangelizing the world.
The Scriptures teach the resurrection of all people. They that have done good will come forth to the resurrection of life, and they that have done evil unto the resurrection of damnation; then the wicked will "go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
