Our Beliefs

If you have more questions or interest in what we believe, we encourage you to contact us.

  • Verbal Inspiration of Scriptures

    We believe in the infallible, inspired Word of God. We accept the Textus Receptus manuscripts as the foundational material from which we derive the King James 1611. The Old and New Testament Scriptures were written by human authors divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, preserved, unbroken and passed down to us today. The Scripture is the final Authority in all matters of faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:89; II Peter 1:20,21)

  • The King James Bible

    We believe the King James Bible  is God’s perfect Word. It was given from His mouth to the 40 different men who wrote down what He said. He promised to preserve His Words (Ps. 12:6,7) for every generation. The 1611 King James Bible is the perfectly preserved Words of God for the English speaking people. We accept no other translation for the English Speaking people. We believe that when we hold the King James Bible in our hand we hold a Bible that is just as perfect as the original one. II Tim. 3:16,17; Psalm 12:6,7; Psalm 19:7-11; Psalm 119:140;Deut. 8:3; Proverbs 30:5

  • Genesis Account of Creation

     We believe the Genesis account of creation, and that what one believes about his origin will determine his philosophy of life. We believe creation was a direct act of God, in six literal 24 hour solar days, instantaneous and miraculous. We believe man was created in the image of God and all reproduction was “after their kind.” (Genesis 1:1; Colossians 1:16-17; Job 26:7; Psalm 33:6,9; John 1:3)

     

  • The Holy Trinity

    We believe God is a Person, eternally existing; one true God, but in the unity of the Godhead. There are three eternal and co-equal Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  One Godhead made up of three Persons Who are the same in attributes, power, characteristics, and desires. (Hebrews 1:8; Acts 5:1-3; Matthew 28:19; I Corinthians 8:6; Colossians 2:9; Matthew 3:16,17)

  • The Son of God

    Jesus Christ, eternally existing, is the only begotten Son of God.  He became a man totally apart from sin, being conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. (Luke 1:30-35; John 1:1-15; Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 1:15)

  • The Doctrine of Sin

    Man was created in the image of God but fell through sin, bringing not only physical death but also spiritual death–separation from God. Now all mankind is totally depraved, having inherited a sinful nature, is bent toward sinning, and has become sinful in thought, word, and deed. (Genesis 1:26,27; 2:16,17; 3:16-19; Romans 3:10-23; 6:23)

  • Blood Atonement

    We believe Hebrews 9:22b that says “And without shedding of blood is no remission.” Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin. We believe Rev. 1:5b which says, “Unto Him (Jesus) that loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood,” We believe I John 1:7b that says “The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” We believe Eph. 1:7 “In whom we have redemption through His blood the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” So we agree with the Bible teaching that Jesus Christ shed His blood on the cross of Calvary to pay for and cleanse us from our sins.

  • Salvation

    Man is lost and must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God. Salvation is by grace alone through personal faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross. (John 1:12; 3:3-7; Ephesians 2:8,9)

  • The Second Coming

    The Lord Jesus Christ Himself is coming again in the air at any moment to “rapture” up those that have received Him as their Personal Saviour and to reward their service. The unbelievers left behind will go through a period called the Tribulation, after which Christ shall return visibly to the earth to set up His Kingdom of one thousand years of righteous rule. After this, the unbelievers of all ages will stand at the Great White Throne to be judged and cast into the Lake of Fire, separated from God forever, while the believers spend eternity in the fullness of joy in Heaven with the Lord. (Matthew 24:29-42; I Thessalonians 4:16-18; Revelation 19:11 - 20:15)

  • Separation from the World

    We believe that all the saved are called unto a life of separation from all worldly and sinful practices and appearances. A person, once he has truly accepted Christ as Saviour, is a new creation in Christ and should live a holy, consecrated life.  He should separate himself from the world and all its lust in obedience to the command of God. (Romans 12:1-2; I John 2:15-17; II Corinthians 5:17; 6:14-18; I Peter 2:9; II Timothy 2:19)

  • The Local Church

    We believe that a Scriptural church is a visible assembly of baptized (immersed) believers, covenanted together under New Testament law for the purpose of carrying out the Great Commission, with an unbroken history from the personal ministry of Jesus on earth to this present day; that this church is a self-governed independent body having Christ as the Head, the Holy Spirit for its Guide, and the Bible as the only rule of faith and practice. The only Scriptural offices of the church are the bishop (Pastor) and deacons. The two ordinances of the local church are Baptism and Lord’s Supper. On all matters of membership, of policy, of government, of discipline, of benevolence, etc. The will of the local church, as guided by God’s perfect Word, is final. (Mk. 16:15; Eph. 1:22-23; 3:21; I Tim. 3)
