8. We believe that the baptism of john the Baptist was Christian Baptism    and besides it there is no other Scriptural baptism. 

Our churches believe in support missions in local, state, interstate and foreign fields.

We believe the following doctrines to be sound and in perfect harmony with the Teaching of God’s Word:

1. We believe in the Verbal Inspiration of the entire Bible, that not only the    ideas of the entire Bible are Inspired but the very words are God-    breathed, Acts 1:16; II Peter 1:20, 21 Acts 28:25-27; Rev. 1: 1, 2; II    Timothy 3:16, 17.

2. We believe in the Virgin Birth of  Jesus Christ, that he had an earthly    mother but that God was His Father.

3. We believe in the Genesis account of Creation—that man was created by    a special Act of God and do not believe in the modern day theory of    evolution with respect to creation, Gen. 1:27, 28; 2:7; 10:32; Acts 17:26;    Col. 3:10.

4. We believe that Jesus Christ Instituted His Church while He was in the    world in Person – during His personal ministry, Matt. 4: 12-22; 10: 5-8;    16:18; Mark 3:13-19; Luke 6:12-19; Matt. 28:19, 20 John 3:29.

5. We believe in the Ordinances of the church were given to the Church by    Jesus Himself during His personal ministry, Matt. 28:19, 20; Luke 22:29    30: John 4; 1;2. The ordinances are two, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

6. We believe the Commission to evangelize the world was given by Jesus    Christ in Person to His Church and was not given to preachers to His    Church and was not given to preachers, boards, synods, sessions    presbyters, popes and potentates, but to the Church and the Church alone    as an institution, Matt. 28:19, 20; 16: 18; Mark 16: 15, 16.

7. We believe that the maintenance of the Church as an institution is one of    the fundamentals, Matt. 16:18; 28:19, 20; Eph 3:21.

8. We do firmly believe that only baptisms administered by the authority of    a Baptist Church are scriptural baptisms, Mark 1:
