We believe that the Bible is the inspired, authoritative, living, eternally reliable Word of God equally in all parts and without error in its original manuscript, absolutely infallible, and our source of supreme revelation from God, superior to conscience and reason, though not contrary to reason; and it is therefore our infallible rule of faith and practice and necessary to our daily lives (II Timothy 3:16-17; I Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12 NASB).more
We believe in one God who has revealed Himself in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Romans 1:20 NASB). The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are all co-eternal, all stand equally superior to time, free from the temporal distinctions of past and future (FATHER - Deuteronomy 33:27; Psalm 90:2; Psalm 102:27; I Timothy 1:17 NASB; SON - John 1:1-2; John 8:58; Hebrews 1:8; I John 1:2; Revelation 1:8 NASB; SPIRIT - Hebrews 9:14 NASB).

We believe in the Lord's supper and believer's baptism as acts of our obedience and a testimony of our faith (Mt. 3:6; Mk. 16:16; I Cor 11:23-29).
We believe that water baptism is necessary in obedient response to the command of Jesus. Baptism is to be performed only upon repentant believers in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matt. 28:18-20).
