The Bible - the King James Bible of 1611 is the inerrant, infallible, inspired, preserved word of God (II Tim. 3:16; Ps. 12:6-7; Jn. 17:17).
God - in the existence of one and only one living and true God, an infinite intelligent Spirit, the maker and supreme ruler of heaven and earth (Gen. 17:1; Ps. 83:18; Jer. 10:10).
Jesus Christ - in his incarnation, virgin birth, absolute deity, vicarious atonement, bodily resurrection, and pre-millennial return (Jn. 1:1, 14; Is. 7:14, 9:6; I Pet. 2:24; I Cor. 15:3-4; I Thess. 4:16-17).
The Holy Spirit - that the Holy Spirit is a divine person equal with God the Father and the Son actively at work in the regeneration, indwelling, sealing, enduement, resurrection and glorification of every believer (Titus 3:5; I Cor. 6:19; Eph. 1:13, 5:18; Rom. 8:23).
Salvation - the salvation of a soul requires repentance toward God and faith in the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is by grace alone without works (Acts 20:21;Rm.10:9-10,3;Eph.2:8-9).
Eternal Security - that the saved are kept by the power of God unto eternal salvation so that they can never fall away or be lost (Jn. 5:24, 10:27-29; Rom. 8:35-39; Phil. 1:6).
The Church - that all true believers from the day of Pentecost to the time of the rapture, both Jews and Gentiles, make up the church. These comprise His body and Christ is the head of it (Eph. 1:22-23, 3:5-6). That this Church is manifested through local congregations made up of born-again baptized believers who meet together for evangelism and edification (Acts 2:41,42,47: 20:17-28; Eph. 4:11-16).
Ordinances - that there are two ordinances to be kept by the local church: baptism and the Lord’s supper. Both ordinances picture the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Baptism is by immersion after salvation and a prerequisite for church membership. The Lord’s supper is the commemoration of His death until He comes and is preceded by self-examination and confession (Acts 8:36-39, 18:8; I Cor. 11:23-32).
Separation - that all believers should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Lord and Savior and that separation from sinful pleasures and worldly practices and associations and ecclesiastical apostasy is commanded by God (II Cor. 6:14, 7:1; Eph 5:11; II Jn. 10).
Second Coming - that there are two distinct phases of the second coming. His coming in the air to catch away His bride, the church, which is the believer’s blessed hope. This is the imminent pre-tribulational, pre-millennial return of Christ (I Cor. 15:51-53; Titus 2:13; I Thess. 4:16-17). The second phase is at the end of the tribulation period or Daniel's 70th week when the Lord returns to this world with the saints to sit on David’s throne and establish His Millennial Kingdom )Rev. 1:7, 19:11-21; II Thess. 1:7-10; Matt. 24:27-30; Zech 14:4-5; Mal. 4:1-4).
Dispensations - that the Bible can be divided into periods of time known as dispensations and that to understand and interpret scripture the Bible must be studied dispensationally (II Tim. 2:15; Eph. 1:10, 3:2)
Baptist - in that we thoroughly adhere to and believe in:

The Priesthood of all Believers
Two Ordinances - Baptism & the Lord’s Supper
Two Officers in the Local Church - Pastor and Deacon

The Bible says there is only one way to Heaven
Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me." (John 14:6)
Good works cannot save you.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Trust Jesus Christ today! Here's what you must do:
Admit you are a sinner.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (Romans 3:23)
"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" (Romans 5:12)
"If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." (1 John 1:10)
Be willing to turn from sin (repent).
Jesus said: "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:5)
"And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:" (Acts 17:30)
Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9)
Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Saviour.
"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:10)
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
What to pray:
Dear God, I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died for my sin. I am willing to turn from sin. I now invite Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Saviour.
"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" (John 1:12)
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)
If you have received Jesus Christ as your Saviour, as a Christian you should:
Read your Bible every day to get to know Christ better.
"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)
"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." (Psalms 119:105)
Talk to God in prayer every day.
"And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." (Matthew 21:22)
"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." (Philippians 4:6)
Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority.
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (Matthew 28:19)
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." (Hebrews 10:2
