Articles of Faith taken from our Constitution and ByLaws adopted on January 13, 2013:

We believe the Holy Scriptures are the authoritative Word of God; that they are all sufficient and only guide in faith and practice.

We believe in one God, ruler over all, a triune Godhead, revealed to us as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that all men are by nature sinners; alienated from God, and that they must repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior in order to be saved.

We believe that we are saved by grace through faith in Christ, and not of ourselves; grace is the gift of God.

We believe that man must be reborn by the power and work of the Holy Spirit justified by imputed righteousness, a gift of God to believers in Christ only.  When saved, we have eternal life in Chirst.

We believe that the first day of the week is the Christian Sabbath and the Lord's Day, that it should be kept sacred and holy as unto the Lord, that it is to be religiously observed by the church collectiviely and by individual members thereof.

We believe that there are only two positive ordinances given to the church by its great head, Jesus Christ: They are Baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper.  Baptism is to be administered to believers only.  The Lord's Supper is to commemorate the death of Christ until be comes again.

We believe that the visible Church of Christ is a congregation of believers baptized upon profession of their faith in Christ as their only Savior associated by convenant in faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the ordinances of Christ, governed by his laws, and exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His word.

We believe that there will be a bodily resurrection of both the just and the unjust and that all will appear at the judgment seat of God to be judged according to the deeds done in the body.  In the final separation of the wicked from the righteous, we believe that the wicked shall go away into eternal punishment and the righteous into eternal life.
