The Restoration Movement began about 1800, with the purpose of restoring the Church to its original state in doctrine, policy and life. The sole standard for this restoration is the Word of God.
We believe that this restoration is possible and desirable, and is the only way to effect genuine Christian unity. The unity of the church is essential to and will eventuate in the evangelization of the world.
Analysis of the conversions recorded in the book of Acts led to the acceptance of the following order in conversion: faith ("...which comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God..."), repentance, confession ("...Jesus is the Christ, the son of the living God..."), baptism (immersion), forgiveness of sins, and gift of the Holy Spirit (Romans 10:17; Acts 16:31; 17:30; 8:37; Matthew 16:16; Acts 2:38).
Further examination of the New Testament resulted in the insistence on the autonomy of the local congregation. Human creeds were rejected as bonds of fellowship and tests of orthodoxy. The New Testament is our only rule of faith and practice.
This congregation, founded in 1834 upon these principals, remains true to them. It is our earnest hope and prayer that these facilities with which we have been blessed may ever be used in the cause of Christ.
We observe the Lord's Supper each Sunday.
"No creed but Christ; no book of authority but the Bible; no plea but the Gospel."
