I. Fundamental Christian Doctrines Believed and Taught By This Local Church

A. The Holy Bible
We believe and teach the inspiration, infallibility, inerrancy, and sufficiency of all sixty-six books of the Holy Bible as found in the original texts. We furthermore believe that God has providentially preserved His Holy Word throughout history so that we may confidently assert that we presently have authoritative copies of the Holy Scriptures.

B. The Holy Trinity
We believe and teach that there is only one true and living God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each member of the Triune Godhead is distinct in His Person, yet one in essence, perfections, and immutable attributes.

C. The Person and Work of Christ
We believe and teach that the Lord Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh. We therefore believe in the Lord Jesus' pre-existence before the world began, virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death on the cross, bodily resurrection from the dead, and ascension to God the Father, where He ever lives to make intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

D. Salvation by Grace Alone
We believe and teach that salvation is a free gift of God's grace alone received through faith alone in the Person and finished work of Christ alone, apart from any meritorious
work(s) on the part of man. We believe that a sinner is converted to God when he or she, by God's grace, repents from sin and places their faith in Christ the Lord.

E. The Return of Christ
We believe and teach that the Lord Jesus shall one day literally, personally, and visibly return to judge the quick and the dead. Those whose names are found in the Lamb's Book of Life shall enter into His rest and enjoy Him forever. Those whose names are not found in the Lamb's Book of Life shall be thrown into the lake of fire where they shall suffer conscious torment and separation from God for all eternity.

II. Larger Body of Christian Doctrine Believed and Taught By This Local Church

As a larger expression of our interpretation of the teachings of
Holy Scripture, this church fully subscribes to two statements of faith: The Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689 and The Doctrine and Distinctives of Berean Baptist Church.

While we do not consider these documents to be perfect or exhaustive in expression, they are accurate summaries of that body of doctrine which is believed, preached and taught in this local church. Anyone who is interested in reading these statements of faith may obtain hardcopies by contacting Pastor Jerry Slate via email at
