About the Scriptures
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world. We believe in the Virgin birth of Jesus Christ, and that He is truly god and truly man.
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.
About the Christian Life
We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ. As part of the Christian life, we believe in the practice of the ordinance of water baptism by immersion and as an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior. We also practice the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper. However, these ordinances are not to be regarded as means for man’s salvation.
We subscribe to the “Baptist Faith and Message” adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000 as our larger statement off faith with scriptural references. We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, North American Mission Board, North Carolina Baptist State Convention, and the Buncombe Baptist Association.
