What We Believe
1. The Scriptures
We believe the Old and New Testaments to be verbally inspired by God, without error, and that they are the supreme authority in faith and life. We reject the modern bible translations, and receive the authorized 1611 King James Bible as the only bible we use. ( II Tim 3:16-17, II Peter 1:19-21 )
2. The Godhead
We believe the Godhead eternally exists in three persons...Father, Son, and The Holy Spirit....that these three are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections, that each one is co-existent, co-equal and co- eternal with each other. ( Gen 1:26,;Matt 3:16-17; Matt 28:19-20; John 10:30; II Cor 13:14; Romans 8:9 )
3. The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe in His...
Eternal existence as God ( Hebrews 1:8)
His incarnation by means of the Virgin birth ( Luke 1:35, Isaiah 7:14)
His death on the cross as substitutionary for sin ( Romans 3:25, Hebrews 9:14)
His literal bodily Resurrection from the dead Luke 24: 36-43; Acts 10:40-41)
His ministry of Intercession in heaven (Acts 1:9; 1 John 2:1; Hebrews 8: 1-2 )
His personal return to earth. ( Acts 1:11; 1 Thess 4:16; Colossians 2:9; Matt 26:64 )
4. The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit, The third person of the Godhead, Convicts men of sin ( John 16:8 ) Regenerates, Indwells, Seals, and sets believers apart unto Holy life and that it keeps and empowers believers day by day, That He is the teacher of the Word Of God and guide for our daily life. Anyone who does not have the Spirit living in him, is not a child of God. ( Rom 8:9 )
We believe he was created innocent and pure ( Gen 1:26 )
Adam fell through the sin of disobedience ( Rom 5:19 )
Thereby all men are corrupt in body, mind, and soul ( Rom 5:12 )
We believe in the reality and personal existence of Satan ( Job 1:6-9; Job 2:3; Matt 4:1-11; 1Pet 5:8; James 4:7 )
We believe that salvation is solely by Grace through the blood sacrifice, death and ressurection of Jesus Christ, The Son Of God.
All who receive Him are drawn by the Holy Spirit, and thereby, become the Children of God
All who are truly saved are kept forever. (1 Peter 1:5; Jude 1:24 )
however, God cannot overlook sin in his children and will chasten and correct them in love ( Hebrews 12:5-8)
8. The Church
We believe that the local church is composed of regenerated baptized believers, voluntarily united together for the purpose of worship, edification, fellowship of believers, spiritual growth and service.
It has been commissioned by Christ to propagate the gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth ( Acts 1:8 )
That the local church has absolute right of self-government, free from interference of any hierarchy of individuals or organizations; and the one and only superintendent is Christ through the Holy Spirit.
that on all matters of membership, the policy of Government, of the benevolence, the will of the local church is final. ( Acts 2:41-47; Acts 4:33-37; Acts 5:1-20 )
We believe that Christ gave two ordinances to the church to be observed until he comes:
The Lords Supper. (Matt 26:26; Mark 14:22-24; Luke 22:19-20; 1Cor 11:23-25)
Believers baptism. we believe that baptism is immersion in water, We practice baptism because of the example given by our Lord (Matt 3:13) and because of the command given by our Lord to be baptized. ( Matt 28:19 )
It is meant for those who are already saved, giving a clear picture of the fact that the believer is dead, buried, and raised spiritually with Jesus Christ by faith in Him.
10. The Future
We believe in the Personal, Premillennial return of Jesus Christ
He will come for His saints to gather them unto Himself, with His saints to judge the nations and to eternal abode in the glory of His presence.
The bodily ressurection of the unjust unto judgment and everlasting punishment in the lake of fire. ( Rev 20: 15 )
We believe it is our duty to call the attention of the believers to the scriptural teachings of seperation and that we should abstain from worldy practices and live a life devoted unto Jesus Christ ( Rom 12:1-2; 1 Thess 5:22; 2 Cor 6:14-17 )
We believe Christ left us the command that we should be witnesses for Him ( acts 1:8) and that we have the resposibility of taking the good news of the gospel to every place where men can be found. (Matt 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-68; John 20:21)
