Beliefs

bigstock-Open-Bible-318707The Godhead: There is only one true God. He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. Thus, He is all powerful and all wise. The Godhead is understood throughout the scriptures and is manifest in Jesus Christ. 1 Tim 3:16, Gen 1:27, 1John 5:7, John 1:1-3,14

Bible: The Bible is the word of God. He promised to preserve His word for every generation. Psalm 12:6-7, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” We believe the King James Bible constitutes those “words” for the English speaking world.

Salvation: We believe salvation is a free gift of God (Eph. 2:8,9)  Romans 10:9-13, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Salvation will be evident through the fruit of repentance, faith and newness of life (2 Cor 5:17)

The Church: We believe that the local church is a congregation of baptized believers, instituted for the purpose of worship, service and fellowship. The local church is an indigenous and autonomous body (Acts 2:42; Eph. 5:21-23)

Baptism: We believe new converts should be baptized in water to picture their identification with Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. Baptism is by immersion. Matt 3:16, Acts 8:38
