WHAT WE BELIEVE

  • The Divine Trinity - Father, Son, Holy Ghost. (1 John 5:7) (Matt 3:16-17) God - There is one living and true God (Deuteronomy 6:4-5)(John 17:3-5) Christ - He is God manifested in the flesh; the mediator between God and man; crucified, buried, resurrected, risen, and exalted. He is our ever present Savior and Lord (Philippians 2:5-11)(1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

  • The Holy Spirit - The Bible assigns to Him all the attributes of God (John 16:7-14; 14:26) In the divine inspiration of the Old and New Testaments, they contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living. (II Tim. 3:16, II Peter 1:20-21)

  • That the atonement through Christ is for the whole human race and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved (Titus 2:11, Romans 10:9-13)

  • That sanctification is initial at regeneration & continues progressively through the Christian experience becoming final & complete in Heaven. (I Cor. 6-11; 12:13, Gal. 4:4-6, II Pet. 3:18)

  • That man is born with a fallen nature, and is therefore, inclined to evil continually. When he comes to the years of accountability, he becomes guilty before God and must be bron from above, by faith in The Lord Jesus Christ. (Psalm 51:5, Eph. 2:3-1, John 3:3; 3-18)

  • That the human race is free and self-controlled, having power to yield to the influence of truth and spirit, or resist and perish. (Ezek. 33:8-9, Heb 3:12-14)

  • That there is a possibility of an individual who has been saved by grace divine, making shipwreck of faith and being lost. This is the Armenian viewpoint and marks the outstanding difference between the Free Will Baptist and a number of other Baptists groups. We also hold that all believers who through grace persevere in Holiness unto the end of life have promise of eternal Salvation. (II Chron. 15:2, II Pet. 2:20, I Tim. 1:19, James 5:19-20, Rev. 2:10-11)

  • In the three gospel ordinances: Baptism by Immersion, the Lord's Supper, & washing of the Saint's Feet. (Matt. 28:19-20, Acts 8:35-38, I Cor. 11:23-26, John 13:12-17)

  • Tithing and regular giving is God's financial plan for supporting the work of the church here on earth. (Malachi 3:10, Hebrews 7:4-9, II Cor. 16:1-2, Matthew 23:23)

  • The return of our Lord, the resurrection of the dead, and in the final judgement. (John 14:3; 5:28-29, Acts 17:31, II Cor. 5:1-10)
