Summarized Statement of Faith
Salvation: We believe salvation is personally received by faith alone in Jesus Christ.
Acts 16:30 “And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31 “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”
Baptism: We believe baptism is for believers only and is by full immersion in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Not part of salvation, but the first step for a new believer.
Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”
Bible: We believe the Bible is the perfect, inspired, infallible Word of God and is found in the 1611 Authorized King James Version.
Psalms 12:6 “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”
Trinity: We believe God is a triune being consisting of God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Not 3 separate “Gods” but 1 God in three persons.
I John 5:7 “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”
Heaven and Hell: We believe in a literal Heaven with the Lord and a literal, burning Hell for the unsaved.
John 14:2 “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”
Luke 16:23 “And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.”
Separated life: We believe that Christians are to be separate from the world in their dress, conduct, hobbies, and lifestyle.
II Corinthians 6:17 “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,”
Music: We believe our music should be spiritual, not sensual, and not conformed to the world. We do not use any type of “rock” music in our church services. Rather our music is from the hymnbook and very traditional.
Ephesians 5:19 “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;”
2 Biblical offices-Bishops and Deacons: We believe in male leadership in the church.
I Timothy 3:1 “This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.”
Marriage: We believe marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman. We believe that the practice of “homosexuality” is still an abomination against the Lord.
Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”
Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the saints: We believe the saved people of the Earth will be raptured before the 7 Year Tribulation.
I Thessalonians 4:17 “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
