What We Believe

SCRIPTURE
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. God spoke to men who wrote what He said as He said. It is truth and without error, therefore it is the only written statement to man from God. It is the only and ultimate guide to the believer. We believe the King James Bible is the inspired preserved Word for the English speaking people today. Ephesians 6:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17

GOD
There is one true and living God who is the ruler of everything known and unknown to man. He is infinite, without error, omniscient, omnipotent and without beginning. God consists of Himself (father) His son (Jesus Christ) and His Spirit (the Holy Ghost). Genesis 1:1, 17:1;
John 5:39,45-47

HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is divine equal with God the Father and Jesus Christ. He convicts the saved person of sin and bears witness to the Truth of the Gospel of Christ thru preaching and teaching. Once a person is saved, they are filled with the Holy Spirit. The Spirit then points out the sins of a believer and shows them how to live, pray and worship. Romans 8:14-16, 26, 27; 1 Peter 1:2

CREATION
We believe in the Genesis account of the creation. God created every thing in the span of 5 literal days and on the sixth day created man in His likeness followed by resting on the seventh day.
Genesis 1, 2; Romans 1:20

VIRGIN BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST
We believe that God put His seed (Jesus Christ) into Mary, and she, being a common virgin woman, gave birth to the Christ child. Matthew 1:18-25

SALVATION
We believe that, thru the death and resurrection of Jesus, man’s sins are covered by His blood. A person need only call on the name of the Lord and repent of sins to be saved. His free gift is available to all who have every been and ever will be. He foreknew who would be saved, but did not pre-select them at any time. Salvation is by God’s grace alone and cannot be earned by any amount of deeds. Romans 6:23, 9-13; 2 Peter 3:9; Ephesians 2:8,9. At no time can a man lose or give back this salvation. God holds them in His hand until His return. John 10:28, 29

THE CHURCH
A church is a body of baptized called out believers set apart for His purpose. Acts 2 The churches function is to first see people saved through evangelism. Its second function is to see those people baptized. The third function is to disciple those saved and baptized to live for Christ and ultimately see others saved. The church’s head is Jesus Christ. God appointed two offices. The Pastor to undershephard His flock and the Deacons to serve and assist the Pastor. God has set qualifications for both of these offices in 1 Timothy 3:1-13. God has given the Church two ordinances as well, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is what a person does after getting saved to identify with Christ. This submersion in water does not wash away sins or complete salvation. Matthew 3:6-16; Romans 6:3-5. The Lord’s Supper is to be done in remembrance of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The juice represents the shed blood of Christ while the unleavened wafer signifies the broken body of Christ. The Lord’s supper is to be observed by the saved baptized members of the local church after close examination of ones self.
1 Corinthians 11:23-28
