1. The Bible, both the “Old and New Testament,” is the inspired, inerrant, infallible and perfect Word of God; it is the sole authority for our faith and Christian living. The Bible inspires and instructs us to live as Jesus lived; ever loving, ever forgiving and ever serving.
2. We believe that God is One, manifested in three distinct persons; God the Father, Lord Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
3. We believe that faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only means of salvation (John 14:6). We believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, the only begotten Son of God, that He died on a cross for our sins, was bodily raised from death, and is coming again for His church.

7. We believe in the priesthood of the believer; that God calls us directly as individuals and as an individual we may accept Jesus Christ as personal Savior and be guided by the Holy Spirit.

10. We believe that Jesus is the sole head of the church. Although our church is self-governing, it cooperates with other Southern Baptist churches, associations and conventions.
11. We believe in missions and evangelism. Jesus’ message of everlasting love and salvation is open to all, so it is the responsibility of every church member to be a witness to the Gospel message (Matthew 28:18-20).
12. We believe in the local church, which Jesus died for and purchased with His own blood. We should therefore be faithful in attending services and giving our tithe and offerings for the support of the church.
13. We believe that the Bible teaches two ordinances:
