{Matthew 22:21; Acts 5:29; Romans 13:1-7}


We believe that the church is called to glorify God through the preaching and teaching of the whole council of God from the Bible. Herein, the church is exhorted to earnestly contend for the faith, which was once delivered unto the saints, and accordingly, we take the following positions of these matters.

  1. Contemporary Christian Music (CCM): We believe that worshipful music must be centered on Jesus Christ and what He accomplished for mankind, and that should be objective and didactic in nature. We reject new style music that would tend to focus on self or declared contemporary manifestations of the Holy Spirit, or sung in a repetitious manner. We believe that rock style music is of the world, and that it is the natural musical expression of rebellion. We further believe that the use of this style of music opens doors to both Neo-evangelicalism and Charismaticism, all of which detracts from the polity, practice and doctrine of Bible believing Baptist churches.
  2. Ecumenical Movement We believe that the attempt to unite the different faiths of today on the basis of the least common denomination of doctrine is a betrayal of the unity of Bible believers based upon sound doctrine of the historic Christian faith. Its dialogue with other religions is dialectic. Its method of operation is subversive and shows a tendency to totalitarianism. Its' concept of an ecclesiastical kingdom is not supported by the Bible, and we reject all cooperation with this movement.
  3. Neo-Evangelicalism: We believe his movement while claiming to be fundamental in theology has actually compromised the underlying principals of the Christian faith. It questions the inspiration and literal interpretation of the Bible, while it accepts liberals as Christians, accepts the ecumenical movement, promotes ecumenical evangelism, denies both ethical and ecclesiastical separation, restructures eschatology and over stresses the social aspects of the gospel. We hold this stand to disagree with the Bible.
  4. Neo-Orthodoxy: We believe this theological persuasion is a futile attempt to reconcile, "the higher scientific Biblical criticism with the true Biblical interpretation". Such an appeal to Biblical revelation is based on half-truths and as such are false and deceptive. We utterly reject this method and position.
  5. The Tongues Movement: We believe that the gift of tongues was given as a sign to Israel, and like the gifts of apostleship and prophecy which were for the founding of the church, it is therefore not given today. While we recognize that God may give any gift to the church at any time, we believe that the current resurgence of the practice of tongues, which is not scripturally regulated, and which is usually divisive, is not the scriptural gift.

{I Corinthians 1:22, 14:1-40; Jude 1-4}
