The Scriptures

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.


God

There is one and only one living and true God. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.


Salvation



Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. If you would like to know more about how to accept Christ as your Savior, please come by the church or call us at (318) 259-8891. We would love to help you know more about giving your life to Christ.


The Church



A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers.


Baptism and the Lord’s Supper



Christian baptism is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
