We beleive that love for one another as Jesus loves the believer manifests our descipleship, proves our love for God and symbolizes our authority as New Testament churches. Love is therefore the greatest commandment of the Lord Jesus Christ upon which all other are dependent. Matthew 22:35-40; John 13:34-35: 1 John 4:7-21; 1 John 5;1-3: Revelation 2;4-5
We believe in the infalliable, verbal inspiration of the whole Bible and that the Bible is the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice. (Psalms 119:160; II Timothy 3:16- 17).
We believe in the personal triune God; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, equal in devine perfections. (Matthew 28:19).
We believe the Genesis account of Creation. (Genesis 1 & 2)
We beleive that satan is a fallen angel, the archenemy of God and man, the unholy god of this world, and that his destiny is the eternal lake of fire. (Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezekiel 28:11-19; Mathew 25:31; II Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 6:10-17; Revelations 20:10

We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ. (John 10:30; John 1:1; John 1:14; II Corinthians 5:19)\
We believe the Holy Spirit is the Divine Administrator for Jesus Christ in His Churches. (Luke 24:49; John 14:16- 17; Acts 1:4, 5, 8; Acts 2:1- 4).
We believe that miraculous spiritual manifestation of gifts were done away when the Bible was completed. Faith, hope, and love are the vital abiding Spiritual gifts.. (I Corinthians 12-14).
We believe that Man was created in the image of God and lived in innocence until he fell by voluntary transgression from his sinless state, the result being that all mankind are sinners. (Genesis 1:26- 27; Genesis 3:6- 24; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12, 19).
We believe that the suffering and death of Jesus Christ as substitutionary for all mankind and was facacious only to those who beleive. (Isaiah 53:6; Hebrews 2:9; I Peter 2:24; I Peter 3:18; II Peter 3:9; I John 2:2) We beleive in the bodily resurrection and ascension of Christ and the bodily resurrection of the saints. (Matthew 28:1-7; Acts 1:9-11; I Corinthians 15:42-58; I Thessalonians 4:13-18)
We believe in the bodily resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ and the bodily resurrection of all the saved. (Matthew 28:1- 7; John 5:28- 29; Acts 1:9- 11; I Corinthians 15:42- 58; I Thessalonians 4:13- 18).
We believe in the pre-millennial, personal, bodily return of Jesus Christ as the crowning event of the Gentile age. This event will include the resurrection of the righteous to eternal heaven, and the millennum will be followed by the resurrection of the unrighteous unto eternal punishment in the lake of fire and that the righteous shall enter into the heaven age. (John 14:1- 6; I Thessalonians 4:13- 18; II Thessalonians 2:8; Revelation 19; Revelation 20:4- 6; Revelation 20:11- 15; Revelation 21:8).
We believe that the depraved alien sinner is saved wholly by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and the requistes to regeneration are repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and that the Holy Spirt convicts sinners, regenerates, seals, secures and indwells every believer. (Luke 13:3-5; John 3:6; John 3:16- 18; John 16:8-9; Acts 20:21; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:9-11; I Corinthians 6:19-20; Ephesians 2:8- 9; Ephesians 4:30;Titus 3:5).

We believe that God deals with believers as His children, that He chastises the disobedient, and that he rewards the obedient. (Matthew16:27; Matthew 25:14- 23; John 1:12; Hebrews 12:5- 11; II John 8; Revelation 22:12).
We believe that Jesus Christ established His church during His ministry on earth.and that it is always a local , visible assembly of scripturally baptized believers in covenant relationship to carry out the commission of the Lord Jesus Christ. and each church is an independent, self-governing body, and no other ecclesiastical body may exercise authority over it. We believe Jesus Christ gave the Great Commission to the New Testament churches only, and that he promised the perpetuity of His churches. (Matthew 4:18- 22; Matthew 16:18; Matthew 28:19- 20; Mark 1:14- 20; John 1:35-51; Ephesians 3:21).
We believe that there are two pictorial ordinances in the Lord’s churches: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Scriptural baptism is the immersion of penitent believers in water, administered by the authority of a New Testament church in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial ordinance, restricted to the members of the church observing the ordinance. (Matthew 28:19- 20; Acts 8:12, 38; Romans 6:4; I Corinthians 5:11- 13; I Corinthians 11:1-2, 17- 20, 26).
We believe that there are two divinely appointed offices in a church: pastor and deacon to be filled by men whose qualifications are set forth in Titua and I Timothy.

We believe the Biblical definition of marriage is the union between aman and a woman. (Genisis 2:21-24; Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-9; I Corinthians 7:2-4; Ephesians 5:22-31)
We believe God disgnates each individual thier gender. God ordained two genders, male and female. Mankind does not possess the authority to identify themselves differently than thier biological sex assigned by God, and any attempt to alter one's gender is sin. (Genesis 1:27;5:2; Matthew 19:4; Mark 10:6; Job 40:8; Jeremiah 13:23)
