DOCTRINE

 

The Local Church

We believe that the church, the Body of Christ, is a New Testament institution established by Jesus Christ, who is its sole head, composed of believers from Pentecost to the Rapture of the Church. We believe the local church is an organization composed of regenerate church members who have been baptized by immersion and join the church for the purpose of fellowship, worship, and service.

Matthew 16:18; I Corinthians 12; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 5:23; Acts 2:41-47; Acts 8:35-39; Acts 1:8

We believe in the autonomy of the local church. We believe the church officers should be pastor and deacons. The church has the final say on its policy.

Matthew 18:15-17; I Corinthians 5:4; Acts 13; I Timothy 3:1-5
