1. 1.We believe that Baptism and the Lord's Supper are the only two ordinances established in the local church by the Lord Jesus Christ. Scriptural Baptism began with the ministry of John the Baptist. i.e. John’s baptism was New Testament Baptism. Our Lord Jesus Christ approved this Baptism himself and accepted those whom John baptized into the church that He, Jesus, organized during His own personal ministry.

Believers Baptism- to be scriptural it must include:

The Proper Candidate: the one who has been saved or Born Again.

The Proper Mode: immersion.

The Proper Design; setting forth the death, burial and resurrection of the believer in Christ.

The Proper Administrator: The local New Testament Church.

  1. 2.The Lord's Supper- We believe the Lord's Supper is a memorial supper administered by the authority and instruction of the local Church; it symbolizes the broken body and the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that the ordinance is “closed” i.e. to be observed in and by the members of the particular local church that is conducting the service. Furthermore, the Scriptures teach that only members of the local church whose spiritual lives are in a right relationship are qualified participants in the Lord's Supper service. We neither believe nor teach that that there is saving power or grace in either Baptism or the Lord's Supper.
