Our Beliefs

Ten Key Biblical Doctrines - Our Statement of Faith

1. There has been and only is one God. A God who has eternally existed in three persons. A loving: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. (Gen. 1:26) (Isa. 42:5, 8) (Deut. 4:39) (1 Tim. 2:5, 6) (John 14:9, 16, 17) (Heb. 9:11, 12, 14) (Gal. 4:4-6) (Rev. 21:2, 27)
 
2. God's written word is our first, only and final authority. We believe that God has miraculously preserved his word for his glory and purpose in the English language King James Bible. (Luke 21:33) (Matt. 7:15) (Acts 17:10, 11) (Ps. 1:1, 2) (Matt. 5:18) (Luke 16:22, 23) (Rev. 22:18-20) (John 3:34) (1 Pet. 2:2, 3)
 
3. All have sinned but a true, living and eternal life with God can begin now but it must be on God’s terms. All will be resurrected. It’s Heaven or Hell! (2 Pet. 3:8, 9) (Acts 17:24-27) (Phil. 2:5-11) (Matt. 10:28) (2 Cor. 5:14, 15, 17-21; 6:2)
 
4. The Gospel, the good news of God's forgiveness of sin, the joy of new life and the gift of eternal life comes through believing in Jesus according to the scriptures, nothing else can or needs to be added. (Rom. 10:17) (Heb. 11:1) (1 Cor. 15:1-4) (Gal. 1:8) (2 Cor. 11:13, 14) (Matt. 1:20; 7:13, 14) (John 1:1,12-14; 14:1, 3, 6, 7; 20:19, 20, 24-31) (1 John 5:4)
 
5. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come to Jesus, without cost but you must leave your good works behind and humbly confess and repent of your sin. We are saved by God's grace, his salvation is a gift received through faith. (Rev. 22:17) (Matt. 10:32; 11:28-30) (James 1:26, 27) (Luke 18:9-13) (Prov. 28:13) (Rom. 6:23) 
 
6. You must be born again of the baptism of the Holy Spirit through the hearing of the word of God. (John 3:3, 5-8; 4:10, 13, 23, 24) (James 1:17, 18) (1 Pet. 1:3-6, 8, 23, 25) (Eph. 1:13, 14)
 
7. We are redeemed by the sinless Jesus's innocent blood. (1 Pet. 1:18, 19) (Acts 20:20, 21, 27-32) (Rom. 2:28, 29) (Eph. 2:8, 9, 11-14, 16-18)
 
8. God is the Creator of all things as recorded in Scripture, God's written word. God created in six individual, connected days and rested on the seventh; all was good. No sin. No death. In God's time when all things are fulfilled, according to the scriptures, God will create a new heaven and a new earth where death and sin will be no more. (1 Cor. 2:1, 2, 5, 7-9) (Prov. 14:12) (1 Cor. 15:19-24, 26; 35-57) (Rev. 20:10, 12, 15; 21:1-8; 22:14)
 
9. Roman Catholicism and Calvinism represent two extremes within what's called Christendom. Both reject scriptural teachings that salvation is by God's grace, through a free will act of faith in Jesus. Both acknowledge St. Augustine for major teachings. We reject the doctrines of salvation which claim that salvation is by faith and good works, and that salvation is by a sovereign unguided act of God for a random select few. We believe that once saved, a saint or child of God, indwelt, sealed and sanctified by the Holy Spirit, can not lose their salvation. (Rev. 22:17) (John 3:16)
 
10. False Christians, in most cases, can be easily spotted. Not everyone who claims to be a Christian is, "Open rebuke is better than secret love." (Prov. 27:5)
True Christians should not be unequally yoked or involved in ecumenical activities with false Christians or other Religions. (Rev. 19:13; 21:6) (John 1:1-4, 14) (Acts 10:39, 40, 42-48; 26:22, 23) (1 Cor. 1:1-31; 2:12, 13; 3:1-23; 4:1-6) (Gal. 1-3) 

Our Statement of Faith

We begin with Scripture

The basis for our beliefs is taken from the Scriptures. God promised to preserve his written word from error. God’s word is comprised of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. We reject the books of the Apocrypha as scripture.

We believe that the scriptures were inspired by the Holy Spirit and written without error. We believe that these same scriptural truths were preserved by God without error. We accept the English Version of the King James Bible as God’s infallible word. We accept God’s written word as our only and final authority in all matters pertaining to faith, hope, love/godliness, salvation, and doctrine. (2 Tim. 3:13–17)1 (2 Pet. 1:21)2 (Ps. 12:6–8)3

Ministry Goals

Our goals of ministry are summed up in two words, love and preach.

We encourage the love of God, neighbors, brethren/saints/fellow believers, and enemies. Practically we teach that our love should be seen in the respect and care we show others. Following the example of the Apostle Paul, we believe that if we are physically able we should be working so that we ourselves are not a burden to others and so that we will have extra to help others in need.

We preach God’s word and more specifically, Jesus crucified for the sins of the world. This truth is expressed in the gospel, the message of the cross—Jesus death, burial, and resurrection. (Gal. 5:14)4 (1 Cor. 1:17–19)5 (2 Thess. 3:8)6 (Gal. 6:14)7

True Unity is not Ecumenism

We believe in the unity of all true believers through the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

True believers—An individual who was once hell-bound but has:

Repented of their sin; Been saved by God’s unmerited grace through faith in Christ crucified; Received at the point of faith, the immediate Holy Spirit baptism—sealing the newborn saint unto everlasting life. (John 10:8–11, 14)8 (Luke 23:40–43)9

We believe in the true believer’s eternal assurance of salvation as revealed in the scriptures. The assurance of everlasting life brings a joy which may come immediately. This joy will grow through a knowledge of the scriptures and the presence of the Holy Spirit. With the knowledge of God’s love and salvation, we no longer need to live in fear of death. (1 John 3:1–2)10 (Rom. 5:11; 14:17; 15:13)11 (Heb. 2:9, 14–15)12

True Prayer

We believe that our prayers should be prayed to our Heavenly Father in Jesus name and that our prayers are helped by the participation of the Holy Spirit. (John 16:23)13 (Rom. 8:26–27)14

False Teachers

Christians should reject, fellowship and worship, with false teachers, most notably those:

Who do not profess that Jesus Christ came in the flesh (2 John 1:5–11).15 Who deny Jesus Deity, rejecting him as True God and True Man (Luke 1:35).16 Who preach and teach a false gospel either by adding to the gospel or taking away from the gospel (Gal. 1:3–12).17 Who do not follow and claim, Jesus as the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6).18

We accept as brethren in Christ those who have believed, have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and have been preaching the true gospel of Christ Crucified for the sins of the world—the world being, every individual that God has created.

We Believe

1. There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of a personable loving caring personality which does not want anyone to perish. All the fullness of the Godhead dwells in Christ. (Gen. 1:26)19 Gal. 4:4–6)20 (2 Pet. 3:9)21 (Col. 2:8–9)22

2. The Son of God, Jesus Christ, is God, the living Word, eternally existing with the Father—the Word of God made flesh. Planned from the foundation of the earth, Jesus became flesh through his miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit who over-shadowed the yet virgin Mary. Jesus’s virgin birth via Mary was accomplished with the full knowledge and willing permission of Mary and the after the fact knowledge of her husband Joseph. The culmination of Mary’s virgin pregnancy brought forth the Son of God now eternally, True God and True Man, he would be called Jesus, the Savior of the world. (John 1:1–4)23 (1 Pet. 1:18–20)24 (Matt. 1:18–21)25 (1 John 4:14)26

3. Jesus lived a sinless life and voluntarily, with the joy set before him, was crucified for the sins of mankind. This atonement was accomplished in fulfillment of and according to the Scriptures. As the second Adam Jesus died upon the cross-accepting God the Father’s wrath and judgment for the sins of the world. Jesus death satisfied God’s divine judgment for sin, making it possible for him to offer salvation and everlasting life to whosoever believes in Jesus. Jesus is now the door to heaven. Yours and the whole world’s sin debt, believer, and unbeliever, has been paid in full. (1 Pet. 2:22)27 (2 Cor. 5:21)28 (Heb. 12:2)29 (Luke 24:25–27)30

4. Jesus rose from the dead in a glorified body which was no longer flesh and blood but still held the scars of his crucifixion. Jesus ate with the disciples, walking and conversing with them. (1 Cor. 15:50)31 (John 20:27)32 (Acts 10:37–43)33

5. Jesus, before his death, promised to ask the Father to send the Comforter the Holy Spirit. Jesus ascended bodily into heaven and will return in the same way. Jesus is now seated at the right hand of God the Father, as the mediator between God and man, continually making intercession for his followers, the saints. (John 14:16–17)34 (Rom. 8:34)35

6. Adam and Eve were created in the image of God. Tempted and lied to by Satan, they sinned by disobeying God; eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil that they could be like God, knowing good and evil. This willful sin alienated them from their Creator and brought all of Adam’s descendants under God’s wrath and condemnation. (Gen. 1–3)

7. This inherited sinful nature makes it impossible for sinners to please God in their own righteousness, their attempts to please or appease God’s wrath are as filthy rags, the human nature is corrupt. As a result, every individual is unable to enter the joy that God had created for them. Our guilt of sin must be paid for with death, our death and shed blood. All people are guilty and unable to stand before God. Everyone needs a Savior to protect them from God’s just wrath and bring them forgiveness/salvation. God the Father because of his love, mercy and justice provided a second Adam—his only begotten Son Jesus Christ—by whom mankind could, through faith, be spiritually born again. (Isa. 64:6)36 (Phil. 3:6–9)37

8. Salvation was pictured back in the garden of Eden when God shed an animal’s blood to cloth Adam and Eve with its skin. This act symbolizes that salvation requires the shedding of innocent blood. This act also prefigured Jesus’s sacrifice for sin as the Lamb of God. Jesus’s sinless blood cleanses away the hell-bound sinner’s sin debt and shame. Without the shedding of blood there can be no forgiveness; no good works, purgatory, religion, sacraments nor any other means can cleanse away sin or their consequences. Jesus laid aside his righteousness becoming poor, that those who freely choose, might be made rich, clothed in his righteousness. God imputed Jesus’s righteousness to those who placed their faith in Jesus for their salvation, and thereby justified them in his sight. (Eph. 2:8–9)38 (John 1:29)39 (Heb. 9:22)40 (2 Cor. 8:9)41 (Rom. 5:1–2)42 

9. The believer’s salvation is pictured as being born again. This new life is begun through faith in Christ Jesus, followed instantly by the baptism of the Holy Spirit and proclaimed through the believer’s water baptism, best pictured in full emersion. It is the privilege of all who are born again of the Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the very moment in which they trust Christ as their Savior. This assurance is not based upon any kind of human merit but is produced by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and the testimony and knowledge of God’s written word. (John 3:3–7, 16)43

10. The Holy Spirit was sent to reprove the world of sin, to reveal and glorify Christ and to seal the saving work of Christ to those born again, called saints. Upon a sinner’s repentance and faith, the Holy Spirit continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth and seals their salvation. (John 16:8, 13–14)44 (2 Cor. 1:20–22)45 (Eph. 1:13)46 (2 Tim. 2:19)47

11. Believers are called to turn from sin, live for God and resist the Devil’s attacks. (Acts 3:19)48 (James 4:7)49

12. Jesus Christ is the Rock/Head of the Church—those redeemed by a free-will act of faith. Jesus’s Church is composed of all, who were at one time hell-bound sinners, but are now cleansed saints, whether still living on earth or enjoying his presence in heaven. The saints of the Church have been joined to Jesus through a personal saving faith in his name. (Matt. 16:15–21)50 (Ps. 62:6–7)51 (Ps. 71:3)52 (Acts 2:47)53 (1 Cor. 1:2)54

13. The Holy Spirit has given the saints spiritual gifts, to serve God and to edify and encourage the saints. God admonishes the saints to assemble regularly for worship, for edification, and for participation in the breaking of bread and the drinking of wine in remembrance of Jesus sacrifice for sin. (1 Cor. 12:7–14)55 (Heb. 10:24–25)56 (1 Cor. 10:16–17)57 (1 Cor. 11:23–28)58

14. Upon a saint’s, physical death, they enter immediately into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord, in Paradise/Heaven, as seen in Jesus’s promise to the believing malefactor/criminal who was crucified at his side. While in heaven the saints are awaiting to be united with their resurrected glorified body. (Luke 23:42–43)59 (1 Cor. 15:51–54, 57)60

15. Upon an unbeliever’s, physical death, they enter immediately into eternal, conscious separation from the Lord, referred to as Hell. While in hell, the damned, await the resurrection of their body to everlasting judgment, condemnation, and punishment, which they will serve in the Lake of Fire, created for the Devil and his angels. (Luke 16:19–31)61 (Heb. 9:27)62 (Rev. 20:10)63

16. The same way Jesus Christ left the earth, he will come again to the earth—personally, visibly, and bodily—to consummate history and the eternal plan of God, including the defeat of Satan and Death. Apostle Paul shares that believers should not be ignorant of this mystery. “That blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles come in.” True believers, need to be about God’s business, preaching the word of Christ crucified for the sins of the world/every individual he created. (Acts 1:9–11)64 (1 Cor. 15:24–28)65 (Rom. 11:25)66

17. The Lord Jesus Christ commanded all believers to be a part in preaching the cross, the gospel of Jesus Christ crucified, throughout the world, training believers from every nation. The fulfillment of that Great Commission requires a total commitment. (Mark 16:15–16)67 (Matt. 28:18–20)68

“Walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savour.” (Eph. 5:2)

Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” (Luke 16:19–31)
