Join us for an informal Bible Study in our church’s dining room as we get into the Word of God and share fellowship
with one another. Bible study and open discussion is a great way to continue building your relationship with Christ.
The Holy Bible
The scriptures of the Holy Bible were written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man.
It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without
any mixture of error, for its matter.
God is one and only one living and true God. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as The Father, The Son and The
Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
God is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above
all, Holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is good. He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and
faithful to His people and His promises.
Jesus Christ is completely human but, at the same time, completely God. He is the only plan for
bringing people who are far from God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect
life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He
defeated death in His resurrection so that we can have life.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into
all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the
coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.
Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created
to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience.
As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. Every
human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian
The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the
forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection
of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned
through our own efforts.
The Church is a local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed
to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the
world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying
We believe that Christian Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. It is an act of obedience symbolizing
the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer’s death to sin, the burial
of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
The Lord’s Supper
We believe that The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members memorialize the death of
the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
Having been led, as we believe, by the spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior.
And on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
We do now, in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love;
To strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its
prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship ordinance, discipline, and doctrines; to
contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church,
the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.
We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to religiously educate our children; to
seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances;
To walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements,
and exemplary in our deportment;
To avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger;
To abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be zealous in our
efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior.
We further engage to watch over one another in Christian love;
To remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate
Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech;
To be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our
Savior to secure it without delay.
We moreover engage that when we are remove from this place we will, as soon as possible , unite
with some other church, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles
of God’s Word.
