What We Believe
Christ is God manifest in the flesh; in His divine nature truly God, in His human nature truly man. The mediator between God and man, once crucified, He is now risen and glorified, and is our ever present Savior and Lord.
The Holy Spirit
The Scriptures assign to the Holy Spirit all the attributes of God.
Government of God
God exercises a wise and benevolent providence over all beings and all things by maintaining the constitution and
laws of nature. He also performs special acts, not otherwise provided for, as the highest welfare of men requires.
The Sinfulness of Man
The Work of Christ
The Terms of Salvation
Freedom of the Will
FEET WASHING, an ordinance teaching humility, is of universal obligation, and is to be ministered to all true believers.
Paul said, “Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him” (I Corinthians 16:2a).
The Christian Sabbath
Resurrection, Judgement & Final Retribution

Free Will Baptist Church Covenant
We promise by His grace to love and obey Him in all things, to avoid all appearance of evil, to abstain from all sinful amusements and unholy conformity to the world, from all sanction of the use and sale of intoxicating beverages, and to provide things honest in the sight of all men.
We agree faithfully to discharge our obligations in reference to study of the Scriptures, secret prayer, family devotions, and social worship, and by self-denial, faith, and good works endeavor to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together for church conferences, public worship, and the observance of the ordinances of the gospel, nor fail to pay according to our ability for the support of the church, of its poor, and all its benevolent work.
We agree to accept Christian admonition and reproof with meekness, and to watch over one another in love, endeavoring to “keep the unity of the Spirit” in the bonds of peace, to be careful of one another’s happiness and reputation, and seek to strengthen the weak, encourage the afflicted, admonish the erring, and as far as we are able, promote the success of the church and of the Gospel.
We will everywhere hold Christian principle sacred and Christian obligations and enterprises supreme; counting it our chief business in life to extend the influence of Christ in society; constantly praying and toiling that the Kingdom of God may come, and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
To this end we agree to labor for the promotion of educational and denominational enterprises, the support of missions, the success of Sunday schools and evangelistic efforts for the salvation of the world.
And may the God of peace sanctify us wholly, and preserve us blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
