We believe in the being of God, as almighty, eternal, unchangeable, of infinite wisdom, power, justice, holiness, goodness, mercy, and truth, and that this God has revealed Himself in His work, under the characters of the Father, Word, and Holy Spirit. Psalms 91:1, Malachi 3:6, Deut. 4:27, Ps. 66:11, Gen 17:1; 28:3; 35:11, Exo. 6:3; 15:18, Deut. 33:27, Ezk. 1:28, 1 Tim. 1:17, John 1:1, Matt. 6:13; 28:18 – 20

We believe that Almighty God has made known His mind and will to the children of men in His word: which work we believe to be of Divine authority, and contains all things necessary to be known for salvation of men and women. The same is comprehended or contained in the books of the Old and New Testament as are commonly received. II Tim. 3:16, John 5:39, II Pet. 1:21, Psalms 19:7, Rom. 1:2; 15:4; 16:26.

Unconditional Election

We believe that God, before the foundation of the world, for the purpose of His own glory, did elect a certain number of people to Eternal life; and that this election is particular, eternal and unconditional on the part of the creature.  I Thes. 1:4,  I Pet. 1:2,  Eph. 1:4, II Thes. 2:13.

Irresistible Grace

We believe that it is utterly out of the power of man as fallen creatures, except they be drawn by the Holy Spirit, to keep the law of God, repent of their sins or believe in Christ. Psalms 10:4, John 5:40, John 6:44, John 6:37, Romans 8:30.

Total Depravity

We believe that Adam fell from the state of moral uprightness and that he involved all of his natural offspring in a state of death and for that original transgression, we were all guilty in the sight of a Holy God. Gen. 2:6; 2:17, Gen. 3:10; 3:12; 3:15; 3:16, Eph. 2:1, Rom. 5:12, Psalms 14:2, Rom. 3:23.


We believe those who were elected by God were predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, Jesus Christ, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love. Romans 8:28; 8:29; 8:30, Eph 1:4.


We believe that in God’s own appointed time and way (by means which He has ordained) the elect shall be called, justified, pardoned, and sanctified; and that it is impossible that they can utterly refuse the calling of Grace, but shall be made willing, by Divine Grace, to receive the offers of mercy.  Acts 2:39, Romans 3:24; 5:9; 8:30, I Cor. 1:2, Hebrews 10:10-14; 13:12, I Peter 1:2, II Thes. 2:13, I Cor. 6:11, Titus 3:7.


We believe that eternal justification in the sight of God is only by the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ and by the faith of Jesus Christ. Romans 3:24, Romans 5:9, Romans 8:30, Galatians 2:16, Titus 3:7.

We believe, in like manner, that God’s elect shall be called and justified, born again, and changed by the effectual working of God’s Holy Spirit. Jude 1:1, Acts 2:39.


We believe that such as are called by His grace and justified are preserved in Holiness, and will never fall away eternally. John 10:29, Hebrews 2:13, Isa. 49:16, Romans 8:28–30, I Thes. 4:17.

Good Works

We believe it to be the duty incumbent on all of God’s people to walk religiously in good works; not in the old Covenant way of seeking life and the favor of the Lord by it, but only as a duty from the principle of love.  I Thes. 5:12,13, Heb. 9:14, James 2:14; 17-20, Romans 6:4; 8:1, II Cor. 5:7, Eph. 2:10; 4:1; 5:15.

Church Ordinances

We believe that Baptism and the Lord’s supper are gospel ordinances both belonging to the converted or true believer; and that persons who were sprinkled, or dipped while in unbelief were not regularly baptized according to God’s word, and that such ought to be baptized after they are converted to the faith of Christ. Acts 2:37, 38;  Acts 10:47, 48,  Acts 16:33, Acts 22:16,  Matt. 26:26-30, Mark 14:22-26, John 13:2-15, I Cor. 11:23-30.


We believe in the resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust, and a general judgment. I Cor. 15:12-26, 42-58, I Thes. 4:13-18, Phil. 3:20-21, Acts 4:2, 24:15, Rev. 20:12-15.


We believe that the punishment of the wicked is everlasting and the joys of the righteous are eternal. I Cor. 15, I Thes. 4:13-18,  Job 19:26, Rev. 20:12-15.


We believe that only the qualifed and ordained Elder (Bishop or Minister) has a right to the administration of the ordinances. He must be called to the work and come under the imposition of hands by the presbytery. Matt. 28:18-20, I Tim. 3:1-7, 4:14, Heb. 13:23.

Church Autonomy

We believe that every Church is independent in matters of discipline and that Associations, Councils, and Conferences of several ministers of churches, are not to impose on the churches the keeping, holding or maintaining any principle or practice contrary to the churches judgment. This statement is based on the fact that the Church as such belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ and not to us as a people. All laws governing this same church are vividly set forth in the Holy Scriptures. We cannot add any man made rules neither can we detract from God’s rules. Each Church is a sovereign body and will either prosper as she obeys the commandments of Christ or will be cursed for failing to abide in the truth. We are Christ’s and will be judged by Him in all matters. Eph 1:22, Eph 5:23, Col. 1:18, Rev 1:10-20, Rev. 2-3.
