We believe that there is one, and only one, true and living God. He subsists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Scriptures of the Christian Bible, Old and New Testaments, are the Word of God, given by inspiration, and are the only rule of faith and practice. We believe that the Lord Jesus is the Head of the Church, which is composed of all true disciples, and in Him is vested all power for its government. We believe that the local church is a body of baptized believers, voluntarily united for the purpose of worshipping God and promoting the cause of the Gospel. We believe that the ordinances required of the Church are those of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
