Our Statement of Faith
(Hold your mouse over the scripture address to read the scripture verse)
WE BELIEVE that the Bible, the Holy word(s) of a Living, Holy God, was not only free from error in the originals (which have been lost for centuries) but also we believe God in His singular providential care has KEPT HIS INSPIRED WORD(s), INERRANT, INFALLABLE and PRESERVED all through the ages, right down to the present day as found in the King James Bible (AV1611). We consider this BIBLE (The King James Bible AV 1611) our final and absolute authority, above and beyond all other authorities on earth (Psalms 12:6-7; Matthew 24:35; II Corinthians 2:17; Philippians 2:16; II Timothy 3:15-17; I Peter 1:25; Revelation 22:18).
WE BELIEVE in one true and living God manifested in the three persons of: The Father, the Word (the Lord Jesus Christ), and the Holy Ghost (Spirit). Though many contend in Christianity as to the name of God, in Scripture He is called JEHOVAH of Himself and is stated as that alone being His name. (Exodus 6:3 & Psalms 83:18). As such, any other name said to be appropriated to God, and not Scripturally based and found in the Authorized text of the King James Bible, is not His name. While the Lord has many titles in Scripture, He has only one name (I John 5:7; John 10:30; Isaiah 12:2).
WE BELIEVE the Lord Jesus Christ is 100% God and 100% man, the second person of the Godhead, who in His incarnation was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. In His earthly ministry He lived a sinless, perfect life, performed miracles, and died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. This sacrifice was not done of Christ’s necessity, but for His own love for His creation He gave His life so that all may obtain eternal life. By the power of God after three (3) days, on the first day of the week, He was bodily raised from the dead. He ascended into Heaven where, at the right hand of God, He continually makes intercession for us (I Corinthians 15:3-4; Colossian 2:6-9; Matthew 1:18-23; Matthew 28:1-10; John 21:25; Hebrews 4:14-15; Acts 4:12; Romans 5:8-9; Romans 8:33-34; Hebrews 1:3; I Timothy 1:15-16).
WE BELIEVE that God created the heavens and the earth including all life, each after its own kind, by the direct word of God and not by the process of evolution, which is a damnable heresy brought about by a humanistic, atheistic, Satanic religion ("But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction." II Peter 2:1 & Romans 1:20-25). Man was created in the image and likeness of God, as a triune being, having a body, soul, and spirit. But through the sin of Adam, man fell into sin and is, therefore, lost apart from Christ. Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God (Genesis 1:1-18; Genesis 1:19-31 ; Genesis 2:1-14; Genesis 2:15-25; Colossians 1:16-17; John 1:1-3; Revelation 4:11; Exodus 20:11; Romans 5:8-9; Romans 5:12; John 3:3; John 3:18).
WE BELIEVE Salvation/eternal life is a free gift, only received as a free gift, and not gained through works, baptism, sprinkling, church affiliation, or other deeds done by mankind, but only through Christ’s Blood. Moreover, it should be proclaimed, and made known to all man, that salvation is only possible through the acceptance of the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 2:4; Romans 4:5; Romans 5:15-21; Luke 13:5; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Colossians 1:14; II Peter 3:9).
WE BELIEVE in the Eternal Security of the Believer. Once a soul trusts in the Lord Jesus Christ, that soul is born into the family of God, and awaits the adoption of the flesh. Nothing can cause that soul to go to Hell once it has been redeemed of God (Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 4:30; Romans 8:35-39; John 5:24; John 10:28-30; II Peter 3:9; I John 5:12-13; Hebrews 6:1-6, Hebrews 13:5-6; I Peter 1:23).
WE BELIEVE in the Pre-Tribulation Translation (Rapture) of the Body of Christ (The Church). The Church is composed of all those regenerated by the Spirit of God (those that have received Jesus Christ and been baptized into the Body of Christ by the Holy Spirit), by whom they have been baptized into one body of whom Christ is the head. The purpose of the church is to witness concerning Jesus Christ according to the Scriptures, and to preach the Gospel among all nations. Jesus Christ will come again to receive unto Himself those who believe in Him, that where He is, they may be also. (I Corinthians 12:13-15; Colossians 3:15; Ephesians 4:5-6; I Thessalonians 1:10; I Thessalonians 5:9; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 4:1; Revelation 20:1-6).
WE BELIEVE that the resurrection of the believers will be unto eternal glory, and the resurrection of the unbelievers will be unto eternal punishment (Revelation 20:15).
He which testifieth these things saith,
Surely I come quickly. Amen.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
