I believe in the plenary, verbal, inerrant, divine inspiration of the Bible and in its preservation in the King James Bible. I use only the King James Version in study and preaching. I believe the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
I believe in the Trinity as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
I believe that God created the universe in six solar twenty-four-hour days.
I believe Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, becoming God incarnate. Jesus died as a substitutionary sacrifice for all men, redeeming only those who receive Him on the ground of His shed blood. Jesus Christ was crucified, buried, and rose bodily from the grave the third day, and ascended bodily into heaven where He is presently interceding for believers.
I believe that man was created in the image of God and as a result of the fall is totally depraved without any hope of salvation by works. Man is a free moral agent deciding whether to receive Christ or not.
I believe in the literal person of Satan and that his ultimate end along with unrepentant man is eternal death in the lake of fire. I believe in a literal hell with literal fire.
I believe that salvation is a gift of grace from God that it is through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ and is not earned by any good works. I believe in the eternal security of the believer.
I believe the church is an organized autonomous local assembly of immersed believers having New Testament officers, Pastors and Deacons, and practicing the ordinances of baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper. I believe that local Independent Fundamental Baptist churches best reflect New Testament teachings.
I believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ for the saints and this event is pre-tribulational and pre millennial.
I am opposed to the charismatic/Pentecostal movement, new evangelicalism, ecumenism, worldliness by the saints, new age philosophy, contemporary music and programs, theistic evolution, humanistic evolution, women preachers, modern dictates of dress and fashion for women, trends of masculinity for ladies and effeminism for men, and I am opposed to the sodomite sin and lifestyle.
