Our Beliefs

A Baptist is one who believes in a supernatural Bible, which tells of supernatural Christ Who had a supernatural birth, Who spoke supernatural words, Who performed supernatural miracles, Who lives a supernatural life, Who died a supernatural death, Who rose in a supernatural power, Who ascended in supernatural splendor, Who intercedes as a supernatural priest and Who will, one day, return in a supernatural glory to establish a supernatural kingdom and the earth.

Article I – The Scriptures

We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men supernaturally inspired; that it has truth without any admixture of error for its matter, and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the age, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man; the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried, the only basis of faith and practice.

    1. By the “Holy Bible” we mean the that the collection of sixty-six books, from Genesis to Revelation, which, as originally written, does not only contain and survey the Word of God, but IS the VERY WORD OF GOD.
    2. By “inspiration” we mean that the books of the Bible were written by holy men of old, as they were moved by the Holy Ghost in such a definite way that their writings were supernaturally and verbally inspired and free from error; no other writings have even been or ever will be inspired.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Acts 1:16; Psalm 119

Article II – The True God

We believe that there is one and only one living and true God; an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love that in the unity of the Godhead, there are three Persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.

Exodus 20:2-3; Genesis 17:1; I Corinthians 8:6; Ephesian 4:6; John 4:24

Article III – The Holy Spirit

That the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature; that He was active in creation; that in His relation to the unbelieving world He restrains the evil one until God’s purpose is fulfilled; the He convicts of sin, of judgment and of righteousness; that He bears witness of the truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony; that He is the agent in the New Birth; that He seals, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies, and help the believer.

John 14:16-17, Matthew 28:19, Hebrews 9:14, John 14:24

Article IV – The Devil and Satan

We believe that Satan was once holy, and enjoyed heavenly honors; but through pride and ambition to be as the ALMIGHTY, fell and drew after him host angels; that he is now the malignant prince of the power of the air, and the unholy god of this world. We hold him to be man’s great temper, the enemy of God and Christ, the accuser of the saints, the author of all false religions, the chief power back of the present apostasy, the lord of the anti-Christ and the author of all the power of darkness-destined, however, to final defeat at the hands of God’s own Son, and to the judgement of an eternal justice in hell, a place prepared for him and his angels.

Isaiah. 12:12; Ezekiel 28:14-17; Revelation 12:9; 2 Peter 2:4

Article V – The Creation

We believe in the Genesis account of creation and that it is to be accepted literally, and not allegorically or figuratively; that man was created directly in God’s own image and after His own likeness; that man’s creation was not a matter of evolution or evolutionary change or species, or development through interminable periods of time from lower to higher forms; that all animals and vegetable life was made directly and God’s established law was that they should bring forth only “after their kind.

Genesis 1; Exodus 20:1; Acts 4:24; Colossians 1:16-17; Hebrew 1:3

Article VI – The Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in innocence under the law of his maker, but by voluntary transgression fell from his sinless and happy state, in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners, not by constraint but of choice; and therefore under just condemnation without defense or excuse.

Genesis 3:1; Romans 5:12; Romans 5:19; Romans 3:10-19

Article VII – The Virgin Birth and Deity of Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Ghost in a miraculous manner; born of Mary, a virgin, as no other man was ever born or can ever be born of woman, and that He is both the Son of God and God the Son.

Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:1-25; Luke 1:35; Mark 1:1

Article VIII – The Atonement for Sin

We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God , Who by appoint of the Father, freely took upon Him our nature, yet without sin, honored the divine law by His personal obedience and by His death made a full and vicarious atonement for our sins; that His atonement consisted not in setting us an example by His death as a martyr, but was the voluntary substitution of Himself in the sinner’s place, the just dying for unjust, Christ the Lord, bearing our sins in His own body on the tree; that, having risen from the dead, He is now seated on His throne at the right hand of the Father on High, where He ever lives to make intercession for you and for me.

Hebrews 7:25; Ephesian 2:8; Acts 15:11; Romans 3:24; John 3:16; Matthew 18:11

Article IX – The Grace and the New Creation

We believe that in order to be saved, sinners must be born again; That the new birth is a new creation in Christ Jesus; that it is instantaneous and not a process; that in the new birth the one dead in trespases and in sins is made a partaker of the divine nature and receives eternal life, the free gift of God; the new creation is brought about in a manner above our comprehension, not by culture, not by character, nor by the will of man, but wholly and solely by the power of the Holy Spirit in connection with divine truth so as to secure our voluntary obedience to the Gospel; that its proper evidence appears in the holy fruits of repentance and faith and newness of life. graces in our souls by the quickening Spirit of God; thereby, being deeply convicted of our guilt danger and helplessness, and of the way of salvation by Christ, we turn to God with unfeigned contrition, confession and supplication for mercy at the same time heartily receiving the Lord Jesus Christ and openly confessing Him as our only and all-sufficient Saviour.

John 3:3; 2 Corinthians 8:17; Luke 5:27; 1 John 5:1; John 3:7 / Acts 20:21; Mark 1:15; Acts 2:37-38; Luke 18:13; Romans 10:13

Article X – The Church

We believe that the New Testament Baptist Church is an organized congregation of born again, scripturally baptized people associated by a covenant of faith and fellowship of the Gospel, observing the ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights and privileges invested in them by His Word; that its offices or ordination are pastors whose qualification, claims and duties are clearly defined in the scriptures; we believe the true mission of the church is found in the great commission; first, to evangelize, second, baptize the converts, third, to teach and instruct as He has commanded. We do not believe in the reversal of this order; we hold that the local church has the absolute right of self-government, free from the interference of any hierarchy or individuals or organizations; and that the one and only superintendent is Christ through the Holy Spirit; that it is scriptural for the churches to cooperate with each other in contending for the faith and for the furtherance of the Gospel; that every church is the sole and only judge of the measure and method of its cooperation; on all matters of membership, of policy, of government, of discipline, of benevolence, the will of the local church is final.

Acts 2:41; Acts 2:42; 1 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesian 1:22-23; Ephesian 4:11

Article XI – The Baptism and The Lord's Supper

We believe that Christian Baptism is the immersion in water of a believer, in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, with the authority of the local church, to show forth in a solemn and beautiful emblem our faith in the crucified, buried and risen Savior, with its effect is our death to sin and resurrection to a new life; that it is prerequisite to the privileges of a church relation and to the Lord’s Supper, in which the member of the church, by the sacred use of the unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine are commemorate together the substitutional death of Christ, preceded always by self-examination.

Acts 8:36-39; Matthew 3:6; John 3:23; Romans 6:4-5; Matthew 3:16

Article XII – The Civil Government

We believe that the civil government is of divine appointment for the interest and good order of human society; that magistrates are to be prayed for, conscientiously honored and obeyed, except only in things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ Who is the only Lord of conscience, and the coming Prince of the king of the earth.

Romans 13:7; 2 Samuel 2:3; Exodus 18:21-22; Acts 23:5; Matthew 22:21

Article XIII – The Resurrection and Premillenial Return of Christ and Related Events

We believe in and accept the sacred Scriptures upon these subjects at their face and full value. Of the resurrection, we believe that Christ rose bodily “the third day according to the Scriptures;” that He ascended to the “right hand of the throne of God;” that “this same Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven” –bodily, personally and visibly; that the dead in Christ shall rise first; that the living saints “ shall all be change in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye at the last trump;” “that the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David;” and that “Christ shall reign a thousand years in righteousness until He hath put all enemies under His feet.”

Matthew 28:6-7; Luke 24:39; John 20:27; 1 Corinthians 15:4; Mark 16:6

Article XIV – The Grace of Giving

Scriptural giving is one of the fundamentals of the faith. It is commanded by God for the purpose of the support of His works and the furtherance of the Gospel. It is also the great basis of God’s blessings. Tithes (The minimum standard of giving), Love and Faith (Offering for missions), Freewill Offerings, and First Fruits and thanksgiving Offerings. We believe that the local church is the storehouse and the disbursing agent of all offerings, the Pastor being the chief steward (Acts 4:34-37)

Malachi 3:10; 1 Corinthians 16:2; 2 Corinthians 8:1-8; Proverbs 3:9-10; Nehemiah 10:35; Ezra 3:5

Article XV – The Mission

We believe that it is the privilege and obligation of all believers to witness, by life and by work, the truths of the Holy Scriptures and to seek to proclaim the Gospel to all mankind. The local church ought to be commission the assigned task to witness as commanded with a blessing by the leadership.

Article XVI – The Second Coming of Christ

We believe that the great tribulation will be climaxed with the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth in power and great glory with his bride to introduce the Millennial Age
