The scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by the inspiration of God, and the only sufficient, certain, and authoritative rule of all saving knowledge, faith and obedience.


There is but one God, the Maker, Preserver and Ruler of all things; having in and of Himself all perfection, and being infinite in them all; and to Him all creatures owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience.


God is revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each bring distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.


God originally created man in His own image, and free from sin; but through the temptation of Satan, man transgressed the command of God, and fell from his original holiness and righteousness, whereby his posterity inherits a nature corrupt and wholly opposed to God and his law, are under condemnation, and as soon as they are capable of moral action, become actual transgressors.


Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, is the divinely appointed mediator between God and man. Having taken upon himself human nature, yet without sin, He perfectly fulfilled the law, suffered, and died upon the cross for the salvation of sinners. He was buried, and rose again the third day, and ascended to His Father, at whose right hand he ever liveth to make intercession for his people. He is the only Mediator, the Prophet, Priest, and King of the Church, and Sovereign of the universe.


Repentance is an evangelical grace, wherein a person being, by the Holy Spirit, made sensible of the manifold evil of his sin, humbleth himself for it, with godly sorrow, detestation of it, and self abhorrence, with a purpose and endeavor to walk God so as to please him in all things.


The Lord Jesus is the head of the church, which is composed of all His true disciples, and in Him is vested supremely all power for it's government. Accordingly to His commandments, Christians are to unite with local churches and to each of these he hath given needful authority for administering that order, discipline, and worship which He hath appointed. The regular officers of a church are Pastors and Deacons.


Baptism is an ordinance of the Lord Jesus, obligatory upon every believer wherein he is immersed in water in the name of the Father; and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, as a sign of his fellowship with the death and resurrection of Christ, if remission of sins, and of giving himself up to God, to live and walk in the newness of life. It is prerequisite to church membership and to participation in the Lord's Supper.


The Lord's Supper is an ordinance of Jesus Christ, to be administered with the elements of bread and the cup, and to be observed by His churches till the end of the world. It is in no sense a sacrifice, but is designed by His death, to confirm the faith and other graces of Christians, and to be a bond, pledge, and renewal of their communion with Him and of their church fellowship.


The bodies of men after death return to dust, but their spirits return immediately to God; the righteous to rest with Him; the wicked to be reserved under darkness to the judgment. At the last day, the bodies of all the dead, both just and unjust, will be raised.


God hath appointed a day, wherein he will judge the whole world by Jesus Christ, when every one shall receive according to his deeds; the wicked shall go away into everlasting punishment; the righteous into everlasting life.
