The church subscribes to the "The Baptist Faith and Message" as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000.
About the Bible
The Bible was 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. Thus, all scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us. It is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried.

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual and personal being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver and Ruler of the universe. He is infinite in holiness, all powerful, all knowing and perfect in every regard. His knowledge extends to all things past, present and future. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He is fully divine. He is co-equal with the Father and Jesus. He inspired men of old to write the Scriptures. He enables believers to understand truth. He exalts Christ. He convicts of sin, righteousness and judgment. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He effects regeneration. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation and produces spiritual fruit. He provides the Christian with power to live the Christian life and do what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
About Human Beings
People are made in the image and likeness of God and are the supreme object of His creation. God created them male and female. In the beginning mankind was innocent of sin and endowed by his Creator with freedom of choice. By his free choice man sinned against God and sin was introduced into God's creation. Thus, mankind has inherited a sin nature. And even though every person has tremendous potential for good we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God. This sin nature separates people from God and themselves and causes many problems in life.
Salvation is God's gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's only offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
About Eternal Security
Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot "lose" your salvation. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God that gives us this security.
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternity with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are real places for eternal existence.
