What Do We Believe?


We believe in the verbal, plenary, divine inspiration of scripture. Every word was breathed by God, and written by men moved by the Holy Ghost. The bible is our sole authority for faith and practice, and is completely inerrant. We believe God originally inspired the Word, and perfectly preserved the Word through the 1611 King James Version of the Bible. There is no need to change or better the Word of God. It is perfect!(Isaiah 40:8; John 10:35; ll Timothy 3:16; ll Peter 1:19-21)


There is one supreme God, omnipotent, all powerful, there is nothing He cannot do. Our God is omniscient, all knowing. Our God is also omnipresent meaning he is everywhere at all times. He manifests Himself in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; He is one in nature, attributes, power and glory. ( Genesis 1:1; Mark 12:29; Matthew 28:19; ll Corinthians 13:14; John 1:1-4; John 5:17-27; Philippians 2:6-11).


Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary. He is therefore true God and true Man. Jesus Christ is impeccable in His nature and sinless in His life. He died on the cross and shed His precious blood as an atonement for our sins; was buried and rose again the third day. he ascended into Heaven and as our High Priest intercedes for us. He is coming again for His church (Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1-4, 14; Philippians 2:6-11; Luke 1:26-35; l Timothy 3:16).


The Holy Spirit is a Divine person; the third Person of the Trinity. he is the administrator of the things of God; convicting of sin, revealing Christ, teaching the truth, restraining evil, energizing believers in prayer, worship, and service and is ever present in the believer as our Comforter and Helper (Psalm 139:7-12; John 7:38-39, 15:26, 16:3, 14; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:9; l Corinthians 6:19; ll Thessalonians 2).


All who believe on Jesus Christ as Saviour are justified on the ground and merit of His shed blood on the cross, and are saved by grace through faith, wholly apart from human merit and works ( John 1:29; Acts 13:38-39; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:3-8). All who are born again by the Spirit of God through faith in Christ are eternally secure (John 5:24, 10:22-29; ll Timothy 1:12; Philippians 1:6; Romans 8:32-39).


The local church is a called out assembly of believers who assemble together in obedience to Christ’s command for this age. The local New Testament church is the agency through which God works to carry out the Great Commission to the lost and dying world. We believe that God has given the church two ordinances baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper. ( Matthew 16:18, 18:17, 28:19-20; l Corinthians 1:2; Mark 16:15-16).


Satan is a real personality; a created being of great beauty and power, the prince of this world, the god of this air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience. He will ultimately be judged and cast into the Lake of Fire (Ezekiel 28:12-19; Isaiah 14:12-14; Job 1:1; John 8:44; Revelation 20:1-3, 7-10).


We believe in the bodily resurrection of all the dead; the saved to a life of eternal glory and bliss in Heaven with God; the unsaved to eternal judgment of conscious suffering and woe in the Lake of Fire ( John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:6, 11-15, 21:1-8; Matthew 10:28; ll Thessalonians 1:6-9 ).


After His personal, bodily, visible return at the end of the tribulation, the Lord Jesus Christ will establish His kingdom on earth and reign as the blessed and only potentate for one thousand years. He will rule with a rod of iron, and Satan will be bound during this time. (l Timothy 6:14-15; Revelation 20:6-7; Isaiah 65:15-25).


We believe that all those that belong to Christ should live a life of holiness. As we come close to Him, He sanctifies us and gives us the desire to live a consecrated life in the abundant joy that His presence supplies. We believe that walking in the Light means living in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord. We believe Biblical separation to also include separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices and associations. (II Timothy 3:1-5; Romans 12:1, 2,14:13; I John 2:15-17; II John 9-11; II Corinthians 6:14-7:1).


We are not ecumenicle and do not fellowship with churches who are not of like faith. We reject the tongues movement and prosperity gospel preaching


We believe Christian music is that in which the music, lyrics, performers, and performances practices are conforming to the image of Christ. We sing mainly the traditional Hymns and Gospel songs, but also some modern songs that adhere to the above values. We believe the goal of church music is to glorify our Savior. All music sung and performed is done so with that in mind. John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.”


The Tribulation Period is a 7 Year period of tribulation following the rapture of the church. 144,000 Jews saved to evangelize the world (Revelation 7). God will pour out His judgments upon the face of the earth. (Revelation 6, 8, 9, 16, 17, 18) Following that is the Battle of Armageddon where Satan’s forces are defeated by the return of Jesus Christ (Revelation 19) The Beast and the False Prophet are cast into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 19:20). Satan is bound and cast into the bottomless pit for 1,000 years (Revelation 20:2-3)
