We believe that all who are born again through faith in Christ are members of the Church which is the body and bride of Christ 1 Corinthians 12:12-27. The Church has been given the commission to reach the world for Christ Matthew 28:19, 20. The local church is an organized body of believers in one locality Revelation 2. The ordinances of the Church are water baptism Matthew 28:19, and the Lord’s Supper Luke 22:19,20.
We believe that man may have salvation from the guilt and penalty of sin through personal trust in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ for man’s sin 1 Peter 2:24. Through faith in Jesus Christ, man is born again John 3:3, possesses a new nature 2 Corinthians 5:17, and has the promise of eternal life Romans 6:23. Salvation cannot come through works, but only through the grace of God Ephesians 2:8,9.
