The Bible is the Word of God. We accept only those 39 books of the Old Testament (Genesis-Malachi) and 27 books of the New Testament (Matthew-Revelation) that the church has universally accepted as Divinely inspired. (I Corinthians 2:7-14, II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:20-21)

The local church is governed by godly men called elders (Titus 1:5-9)

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one God, (Matthew 28:19, John 14:16-26; 16:7-15)

Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life in which He taught the performed mighty works, wonders and signs. He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins and was raised from the dead on the third day. Later He ascended to the Father's right hand where He is head of the church and intercessor for believers. (Philippians 2:5-8, Luke 1:26-35, Peter 2:21-24, I Corinthians 15:3-5, Acts 1:9-11, Ephesians 1:18-23, I John 2:1-2, John 14:1-6)

The Holy Spirit is the presence of God that indwells all by promise, who have accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and have been immersed into Him (John 14:25-26; 16:8-15, Romans 8:26-27, Acts 2:38, Ephesians 5:18,
I Corinthians 12:13, I John 2:20,27)

God, because of His compelling love, sent His son Jesus as a perfect sacrifice for our sins. Salvation-eternal life is not something earned but is freely given to all who believe and accept Christ on the terms that he has revealed in the Bible.

Believer's baptism is in water by immersion
only which we understand to be for the forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:37-38, 8:26-39)

God is the absolute sole center - that the universe and all creation was brought into being by the "word of God" (Genesis 1:1-2;25, John 1:1-4)

God, because of His compelling love, sent his son Jesus Christ into the world to save lost sinners by His atoning death on Calvary (Genesis 3:15, Isaiah 53:1-6, Matthew 1:21, John 3:16, Romans 5:8, Ephesians 1:3-6)

The existence of Heaven, an eternal home of the saved, and the existence of Hell, the eternal place of punishment by fire prepared for the devil and his wicked angels, is literal (II Peter 3:7-10, Revelations 20:7-15, 21-22)

The church is the body of Christ on earth and exists to save the lost and edify the saved (Matthew 28:19-20, Ephesians 4:1-16)

The observance of the Lord's Supper is on the first day of every week as did the early church (Acts 2:42, 20:7)

Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and reign forever as King and Lord of all (Matthew 24:29-31, I Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelations 1:7)

God's work should be supported by tithes and offerings from cheerful hearts (Matthew 6:19-21, I Corinthians 16:1-2, II Corinthians 9:6-7)
