I. A commitment to expository preaching focusing on a systematic exposition of a passage where the main point of the text being examined is the main point of the sermon.

II. A commitment to the scriptures as the only infallible authority by which we may form our doctrine and theology.

III. A commitment to a biblical understanding of the gospel. This is understood to mean that we are dead in our sins and utterly unable to save ourselves. It is only by a gracious act of God in which he quickens our spirits to respond to him in faith that we may respond to the gospel. Our salvation comes by faith in Christ alone, who being both man and God, bridges the gap between humanity and the creator and makes intercession for us as our High Priest. By repenting and putting our faith in Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross and resurrection from the dead we are delivered from the dominion of darkness and conveyed into the kingdom of Christ where we have become adopted into the family of God and grow in holiness.

IV. A commitment to a biblical understanding of conversion marked by repentance and faith in Christ which leads to obedience.

V. A view of Evangelism which calls people to repent of their sins and put their trust in Christ.

VI. A covenant relationship with God and other members of the local congregation, bound by covenant to faithfully attend, serve, exhort one another to good works.

VII. A commitment to correcting sin in the life of the body and the exercise of church discipline with the goal of restoration.

VIII. A commitment to making disciples; first in the home and then in the community.

IX. A commitment to a plurality of biblically qualified elders and deacons leading the church.
