Statement of Faith

BIBLE

We believe the King James Bible is the verbal, plenary, inspired Word of God. It is the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God. We look to it as the final Authority in all matters. John 1:1; II Timothy 3:16

GOD

We believe in the triune God, three persons in one God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost make up the Trinity. Matthew 28:19; I Corinthians 8:6

SON OF GOD

We believe Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God.  He was virgin born, conceived by the Holy Ghost, and was completely God and completely man in one.  Luke 1:30-35; Colossions 1:15 

SIN

God created man in His perfect image; however, man fell by sin and is now completely depraved and lost.  Man will die two deaths without the Saviour.  The first death is the physical death.  The second death is the spiritual death, which is separation from God in a literal and eternal hell. Romans 3:10-23; 6:23

BLOOD ATONEMENT

Jesus Christ came down from Heaven to suffer and die for the sins of all mankind.  He rose again in bodily form and ascended into Heaven where He sits at the right hand of God the Father interceding for believers. Luke 24; Romans 5:8-10

SALVATION

Salvation is by grace alone through Christ's finished work on the cross.  Man is lost and must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God. John 3:3-7; Ephesians 2:8-9

SEPARATION

We believe that the saved are commanded to stay out of the sin they were saved from.  Each saved individual has a responsibility to God to be separated from all worldliness and sinfulness. II Corinthians 5:17; 6:14-18

LOCAL CHURCH

A body of baptized believers who are obedient to obey the great commission.  It is autonomous and visible.  Jesus Christ is the Head of the church and the two offices are pastor and deacon.  The two ordinances are baptism and the Lord's supper. Mark 16:15; Eph 3:21

SECOND COMING OF CHRIST

The Lord Jesus Christ is coming again in the air at any moment to gather His Church and to reward them for 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 in the Lake of Fire, separated from God forever, while 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
