- The Holy Bible, consisting of both the Old and New Testaments, is verbally and plenarily inspired by God in the original manuscripts. The Scriptures are wholly inerrant and eternally preserved. God has preserved His Word through the Masoretic and Textus Receptus manuscripts and through the King James Version for English speaking people. The King James Version is the only English translation used in our ministry.
- There is one God and He is the Almighty God of the Bible.
- God eternally exists in three co-equal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
- God spoke the Earth and all things into existence in six literal days.
- Jesus Christ is eternal, virgin born, and the only begotten Son of God.
- All mankind is sinful, condemned, and unable to provide its own salvation.
- God freely offers salvation to all mankind by grace, through faith alone in the finished work of Christ.
- Jesus Christ died on the cross for the sins of the whole world. He was buried, bodily resurrected, and ascended to Heaven where He intercedes for believers.
- The Holy Spirit indwells the believer at salvation and eternally seals his salvation.
- Both Heaven and Hell are real places.
- God has commissioned the local church to fulfill the Great Commission through evangelism, discipleship and edification.
- It is the duty of all believers to actively share the Gospel while living godly and separated lives.
- The Rapture is the imminent, pre-tribulational return of Christ for all believers.
- The Second Coming is the pre-millennial return of Christ after which He will reign for one thousand years.
- God will judge all mankind: believers at the Judgement Seat of Christ and unbelievers at the Great White Throne.
- Calvinism and Arminianism are both unscriptural.
- Sign gifts were given as marks of credibility to the early believers. The need for which has ceased to exist. Therefore, the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements are both unscriptural.
- All forms of compromise with liberalism, ecumenicism, and neo-evangelicalism is unscriptural. The basis for fellowship with individuals of similar faith is obedience to the Word of God, not simply agreeing with the Gospel.
We hold to the Baptist Distinctives and seek to serve with ministries that hold the same convictions.

Philosophy of Ministry
Ministry must focus on Christ and the Bible. The minister must love the Bible with all his heart and utilize it as the ultimate resource for spiritual growth. He must recognize that nothing can benefit the hearts of men more than the Words of God. Therefore, men must see Christ and not a man, and they must hear the Bible and not a philosophy, if they are to benefit from a ministry. (1 Corinthians 10:31; Colossians 1:18; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Philosophy of Evangelism
The evangelist is a gift of God to the church. It is the responsibility of the church to utilize his gifts for the evangelization of the lost and the reviving of the saints. His purpose in the local church is to exalt Christ by encouraging the pastor and motivating the saints unto holy living and evangelistic zeal. (Ephesians 4:11)
Philosophy of Revival
Revival is a product of the Holy Spirit and is unable to be manufactured by the efforts of man. Revival begins in the hearts of believers as they humble themselves, confess known sin, and seek God. It grows and is sustained by way of prayer, the Word of God, and a constant realization of His omnipresence. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Philosophy of Music
Godly music properly balances melody, harmony, and rhythm. It should match the character of God and follow the principle that all things must be done decently and in order. Music that imitates worldly melodies, rhythms, and vocal techniques is contrary to Biblical principles. Additionally, such music is mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually unhealthy for the Christian. We strive to minister with traditional, conservative music. (1 Corinthians 10:31; 14:40; Colossians 3:16)
Below is a sample of our music ministry. Often we will sing a cappella or with a piano when it is available.
