What We Believe

We believe…

…that God has preserved His Word in English by way of the King James Bible.
…in the grammatical, historical, literal and normal sense of interpretation, the Bible being Its own interpreter.
…that God is the  ”I AM” of the Bible and that He is a rewarder of all those who seek Him.
…in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. These three are ONE– the Godhead
…that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and all that is therein.
…that God made man in his own image– not as a lower life form to evolve into man.
…that sin came by way of the fall of Adam and Eve. Man was perfect until sin entered in, and death by sin.
…that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Sin has brought condemnation on all mankind.
…that salvation came by way of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God and God the Son.
…that Jesus Christ was eternally pre-existent as God, that He was virgin-born and that He lived a perfect life without sin.
…that Jesus suffered, bled and died on the cross. He was then buried, rising again on the third day.
…that there is a heaven and a hell, and a day when all will stand before God and give an account.
…that there is only one way to heaven– repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
…that the price of man’s sin was paid in full by the sacrifice of Christ on the cross!
…that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. This is repentance toward God and faith in Christ!
…that Jesus said “Ye must be born again!” and “except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish.”
…in salvation by grace through faith, not by our works, but by the Lord’s finished work of redemption.
…in holy living by the child of God for the sake of winning the lost and, ultimately, for the glory of God!
…in marriage between a man and a woman and the home as God’s design for a moral and functional society.
…in the sanctity of life, the preciousness of children and the importance of the family. We stand against abortion.
…that there is only one institution through which we corporately serve the Lord– the local New Testament church!
… in baptism and the Lord’s supper as local church ordinances, administered in and by each church as a body.
…in personal and ecclesiastical separation (“Come out from among them”) to clearly identify with Bible principles!
…that each local church is responsible to go into the whole world and preach the Gospel to every individual.
…in the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ for the believer, and the rapture– when the saved shall be caught up.
…when the believer dies, he/she is with the Lord, of those who sleep in Jesus (whose bodies will rise first).
…the believer will be forever with the Lord in a body like unto Christ’s resurrection body.
…in a seven year tribulation period upon the earth unlike anything this world has ever seen.
…in a thousand year reign of Christ on earth–  real peace with righteousness reigning!
…in God ultimately making all things new!
