What We Believe

We believe in the absolute authority of the Holy Scriptures. We believe the original manuscripts were given by inspiration of God and were without error. We believe the God who gave His word to man has taken upon Himself the responsibility for its preservation (Psalms 12:6-7). We believe the incorruptible word of God which cannot pass away is available to the English speaking world in the Authorized (King James) Version. This Bible is our final authority in all matters.

We believe in one God eternally existent as the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost. We believe God to be the creator and sustainer of all things, visible and invisible. We believe the universe and all that is therein to be held together by the word of His power. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ to be God manifest in the flesh, virgin born, without sin, crucified, risen and coming again to receive His church, then returning to establish His kingdom. We believe salvation is available to all men by grace through faith in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ, apart from human works or merit of any kind.

We believe the saved child of God is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ, and is sealed, taught, and comforted by the Holy Spirit until the day of redemption. We believe salvation makes one a member of the body of Christ and the members of this body should gather together in a local church where they may minister one to another. We believe it is the responsibility of every believer to proclaim the saving gospel to all men by personal testimony and by giving of their means to finance the missionary efforts of the church.

We believe all men rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ will spend eternity in the conscious torment of a literal lake of fire, while those receiving the Lord Jesus Christ will spend eternity in the glorious presence of God. We believe all saved men should be separate from the outward and inner ways of this world, being holy in mind and body. We believe, however, that righteousness does not come by keeping of laws and commandments but by an inner change of heart. We therefore place emphasis on the inner condition, trusting the outward appearance to follow accordingly.

We believe that water baptism is a public testimony made by the saved Christian and plays no part in the salvation of their soul.

We believe that God established and ordained the marriage to be between one man and one woman. We believe that once that marriage has been established that the man should love and be faithful to his wife just as Christ loves and is faithful to His church. Also we believe that the wife should love and submit herself to her husband even as God told His Church to love and submit itself to the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that a saved man should only marry a saved woman and to not be unequally yoked together.
