What We Believe...
Short Statement of Faith:

We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired, infallible, inerrant, plenary, and authoritative Word of God.
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His deity, His sinless humanity, His perfect life, the eternal all-sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father's right hand, and His personal imminent return to earth in power and glory.
We believe all men are depraved in their nature since the fall, and justly deserve punishment for their sin in hell. While they can do nothing in themselves to earn God's favor, all men are responsible to call upon God for their salvation.
We believe that justification is a judicial act of God on the believer's behalf solely on the merits, blood, and righteousness of Jesus Christ. Further, that regeneration (the new birth) by the power of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation. This salvation is by grace through faith alone.
We believe in the Lordship of Christ over His Church; and the observance of the ordinances of Christian baptism and the Lord's Supper.
We believe in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed in heaven and the eternal doom of the unregenerate in the lake of fire.

A more detailed statement of faith can be found in the London Baptist Confession (1689).

What one believes is the foundation of all life's affairs. It is the lens in which one views the whole world. 

Without truth, life would be meaningless and the Christian life would be lived in vain.
