What We Believe

1. Scripture

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Word of God. We believe the Bible is God breathed as the Holy Ghost moved upon the hearts of men, and God’s preservation of His pure words to every generation. We believe the King James Version of the Bible to be the preserved Word of God for English speaking people.  The Bible is our sole authority for faith and practice and the King James Bible is used exclusively in all services, classes, and outreach ministries.

- Psalm 12:6-7, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21

2. The Trinity

One God eternally exists in three Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Godhead is co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections.

- Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 3:16-17, Matthew 28:19, John 1:14, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Ephesians 4:6, 1 John 5:7

3. The Son

Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, who became flesh , was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, was buried and resurrected from it to purchase salvation for all who will accept Him, and He now sits at the right hand of the Father.

- Matthew 1:18-23, John 1:1 & 14, Philippians 2:5-8, 1 Timothy 3:16

4. Sin

God created man in His image. Man sinned in the Garden and then received not only physical death but spiritual death which is eternal separation from God in hell. Because of Adams sin, all are born with a sin nature.

- Genesis 1:26, Genesis 3:16-19, Romans 5:12

5. Salvation

We believe that the clear message of salvation is “repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ”.  We believe that salvation is “by grace” plus nothing minus nothing. We believe that men are justified by faith alone and are accounted righteous before God only through the merit of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

- John 3:16, John 6:47, John 14:6, Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8

6. Baptism

After salvation,  you must be baptized by scriptural immersion as an outward symbol of your faith and obedience to God’s Word, but is not necessary for salvation.

- Matthew 28:19, Acts 6:36-38 Romans 6:3-4, 1 Corinthians 12:13

7. Assurance of Salvation

All true believers, having been born into the family of God, are possessors of everlasting life, shall never perish and are eternally secure.

- John 10:28-29, 1 Peter 1:3-5, 1 John 5:13

8. Separation

As children of the Lord, we are set apart. We should endeavor, by God’s grace to live a consistent Christian life and refrain from worldliness and conduct ourselves in such a way as not to be a stumbling block.

- Romans 12:1-2, 2 Corinthians 6:17, Ephesians 2:10, Colossians 3:1-17

9. The Lords Supper

The Lords Supper is a commemoration of His death until He comes, and is to be celebrated periodically. It is a memorial of what Christ did for us.

- 1 Corinthians 11:23-30

10. The Second Coming

We believe the “Blessed Hope” of our Lord’s return is literal, personal, visible, imminent, pre-millennial, and pre-tribulational. He will rapture His Church prior to the seven years of tribulation, and at the end of the tribulation Christ will return with His saints to establish His one thousand-year reign on the earth.

- I Thessalonians 4:13-18, Titus 2:13, Revelation 19:11-16; 20:1-6
