Statement of Faith

  • We believe the 66 books of the Old and New Testament are the complete, inspired, infallible Word of God. The Scriptures were written through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit by human writers as they were divinely inspired. We hold the King James 1611 Version of the Bible to be the infallible Word of God, preserved for us in our own language, in the words God wanted us to have. It is our final authority for faith and practice. The King James Version will be the official and only version used by this Church.
    (II Timothy 3:16, Psalms 119:89, II Peter 1:20-21)

  • We believe God eternally exists in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
    (II Corinthians 13:4, I John 5:5-10)

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God; that He was God incarnate in the flesh, and that He was born of a virgin by the Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus lived a sinless life on earth. We believe that Christ was crucified on a cross, died, was buried and on the third day rose bodily from the grave to be our eternal living Savior. We believe the death of Christ on the cross was the substitutional sacrifice for our sin and is the only sacrifice for our sin acceptable in the eyes of God.
    (Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:26-35, John 1:1-14, Romans 5:8, Galatians 4:4)

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells the believer at the time of salvation, and that all believers are baptized into the one true Body of Christ. The Ministry of the Holy Spirit is to draw and convict the lost, comfort the believer and convict the believer of sin, judgment and righteousness.
    (John 14:26; 16:6-14, I Corinthians 12:12-13)

  • We believe that baptism is a command of the Lord Jesus Christ for all believers. It is a picture of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ; and though not required for salvation, it is the first command for all believers. Immersion is the only scriptural mode of baptism, and is for believers only.
    (Mathew 28:19, Acts 8:36-38, Romans 6:3-4)

  • We believe salvation through Jesus Christ is eternal and everlasting. Once saved, the believer can never lose the free gift of salvation under and circumstance.
    (John 10:28, Philippians 1:6, I Peter 1:5 &19-23)

  • We believe the Lords Supper is a commemoration of the death of our savior. His flesh is represented by unleavened bread and His blood by the unfermented fruit of the vine. This should be celebrated periodically until his return.
    (Luke 22:17-20, I Corinthian 11:17-26)

  • We believe that man was created in the express image of God but because of the sin of Adam man became alienated from God and inherited a sinful nature. Therefore man is depraved and completely unable to remedy his condition in and of himself.
    (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 3, Romans 3:22-23, Romans 5:8-12, Romans 6:23)

  • We believe that the local Church is the true Bride of Christ. It is made up solely of born again baptized believers. The Church shall be autonomous and independent of external control or authority. We believe Scriptures teaches clearly the establishment and continuance of local churches. We recognize water baptism and the Lords Supper as scriptural ordinances for the local Church in this age.
    (I Corinthians 12:12-14, Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 5:25-33, Acts 2:41-42, Acts 13:1-4, Acts 14:27, I Timothy 3:1-13)

  • We believe it is a command for all who name the name of Christ  to separate themselves from worldly and sinful pleasures, practices and associations.
    (Romans 12:1-2, II Corinthians 6:14, I John 2:15-17)

  • We believe in the imminent premillinial return of our Lord Jesus Christ to rapture all believers out of this world prior to a seven year tribulation period.
    (Psalm 89:3-4, I Thessalonian 1:10, 4:13-18, Titus 2:13, Revelation 3:10, 19:11-16, 20:1-6)

  • We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin and declared enemy of God and man. At the end of this world he will be cast into the lake of fire and eternally punished.
    (Isaiah 14:12-17, Mathew 4:2-11, Revelation 20:10)

  • We believe that God created the universe in six literal 24 hour periods. We reject all other theories concerning the origin of the universe.
    (Genesis 1-2, Exodus 20:11)

  • We believe the God ordained and established the authority of three basic institutions 1-the home, 2-the Church, 3-the state. God has given each institution specific responsibilities and the authority to carry out those responsibilities. No one institution has the right to infringe upon the other. every person is subject to these authorities, but all (including the authorities themselves) are subject to God and governed by His Word. The home, the Church and the state are equal and sovereign in their respective Biblically assigned sphere of responsibility under God.
    (Romans 13:1-7, Ephesians 5:22-24, Hebrews 13:17, I Peter 2:13-14)

  • We believe that God has commanded His people to support the Church financially with their free-will offerings. The tithe is established as the basis of giving, but the believer should also give cheerfully and sacrificially as an act of worship to God, as to finance the ministries of the Church. We believe the Christian relinquishes all rights to direct the use of the tithe once the gift has been given.
    (Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:8-10, I Corinthians 16:1-2, Galatians 6:6, I Timothy 5:17-18)

  • We believe God has given the Church a Great Commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations tribes and ethnic groups, Therefore, we believe the Church has a sacred duty to support in every way possible the work of missionaries (foreign and domestic) to give all people the opportunity to come to Christ the Savior.
    (Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:46-48, John 20:21, Acts 1:8, II Corinthians 5:20)

  • We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity should be engaged in outside of marriage between a man and a woman. We believe this is a moral and not political issue. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, incest, fornication, adultery, pedophilia and pornography are sinful perversions of God's gift of sex.
    (Genesis 2:24-25, 19:1-25, Leviticus 19:1-30, Romans 1:22-32, I Corinthians 5:1, 6:9, I Thessalonian 4:1-5, Hebrews 13:4)

  • We believe that life begins at conception, and that an unborn child is a living being. Abortion constitutes the willful murder of an unborn child. Abortion is a moral and not a political issue. We reject the teaching that abortion and pregnancies due to rape, incest, birth defects, gender selection, birth control or the so called mental well being of the mother are acceptable.
    (Job 3:16, Psalm 51:5, 139:14-16, Isaiah 44:24, Jeremiah 1:5, 20:15-18, Luke 1:44)
