What we Believe

We are affiliated with Conservative Baptist of America and CBMissionNortheast

We believe in the Holy Scriptures:  accepting fully the writings of the Old and New Testaments as the very Word of God, verbally inspired in all parts, our infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice.

We believe there is one God eterally existent in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Deity of Christ;  His virgin birth; His shed blood for atonement; His bodily resurrection; His ascension into Heaven there to be our Intercessor.

We believe that the the Holy Spirit convicts of sin;  makes believers children of God through the new birth assuring them of Heaven; and by His indwelling enables Christians to live a godly life.

We believe that all men are by nature and choice sinful and lost,  and have within themselves no possible means of salvation.

We believe in salvation by grace through faith;  that salvation is a free gift of God, not by any virtue or works of man, but received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ;  that all true believers possess the gift of eternal life, a perfect righteousness, adoption into the family of God, and the divine guarantee that they shall never perish.

We believe in the existence of Satan,  the deceiver and god of this present world; that he was defeated and judged at the cross, and therefore his final doom is certain.

We believe in the second coming of Christ;  that His return from Heaven will be personal, visible and glorious.

We believe that the spirits of the saved  at death go immediately to be with Christ in Heaven; that at His second coming their bodies shall be raised from the grave, their works judged and rewards determined; that the spirits of the unsaved at death descend immediately into Hades until the final day of judgment, at which time their bodies shall be raised from the grave, judged, and cast into Hell, the place of final and everlasting punishment.

We believe in the priesthood of all believers,  that Christ is our Great High Priest and through Him every born again person has direct access into God's presence without the need of a human priest;  that the believer has the right and responsibility to personally study and interpret the Scriptures guided by the Holy Spirit.

We believe that a New Testament Church is an organized body of believers, practicing scriptural ordinances and actively engaged in fulfilling the Great Commission.

We believe the two scriptural ordinances given to the local church  are baptism by immersion of believers only, and the Lord's Supper to be partaken of by obedient Christians.
