Church Beliefs...

This We Believe

1. The Bible to be the written record of God's revelation of Himself to man.   We believe that it was writen by men inspired of God and is the divinely inspired and inerrant word of God.

2. We believe in one God who revealed himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3.  We believe that man was created by God in His own image and is the crowning work of God's creation.  We believe man was created innocent and with a free will.  We believe man chose his own way and lost his innocence and brought sin to the human race. We believe all need to be saved from sin.

4. We believe salvation has been provided by God through Jesus Christ and that man can receive this salvation by repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.

5.  We believe the church is made up of believers in Jesus Christ who have confessed Him and been baptized by immersion.  We believe that the church is autonomous and has no authority except Jesus Christ its head through the Holy Spirits leadership.

6.We believe in two symbolic ordinances; that is baptism and the Lord's Supper.

7.  We believe in evangelizing the lost and missionary emphasis at home and around the world.

8.  We believe in voluntary association with sister churches in the Holston Valley Association, the Tennessee Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention.

9.  We believe in Christian education, stewardship, Christian cooperation and religious liberty.

10.  We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord in His own time.
