Statement of Faith

Our statement of Faith is what we firmly believe based on the Bible.

The Scripture – The Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testament only, is the verbal-plenary Word of God. The King James Bible is the preserved and inspired Word of God for the English speaking people. It is the sole authority on matters of faith and practice. (Psalm 12:6; 119:89; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)

Godhead – There is one God who exists eternally in three persons; Father, Son, Holy Spirit. They are equal in every divine perfection and are executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (Matthew 28:19;  1 John 5:7;  John 16:7)

Jesus Christ – Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, begotten by the Holy Spirit; that He is fully God and fully Man. His blood paid for our sins, willingly He laid down His life as a ransom for our sins, three days later arose from the grave and is now in Heaven making intercession for us, and is coming again to receive His own. (Matthew 1:18-21; John 1:1-2; Acts 1:8-10)  

Salvation – We believe “that all have sinned and come short of the Gory of God.” Therefore “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal Life through Jesus Christ our LORD.” Salvation is “by grace through faith that not of yourself, it is the gift of God, lest any man should boast” We believe that salvation is eternal and that you cannot lose your salvation. (Romans 3:23, 5:12, 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)

The Church – The New Testament Church is a local organized assembly ofimmersed believers actively engaged in carrying out the Great Commission and observing the two ordinances; baptism and the Lord’s Supper. (Matthew 16:18-19, 28:19-20; Hebrews 10:25; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31)

Baptism – Baptism is one of the two ordinances committed by the local Church, immersion is the only scriptural method, and Salvation it’s only Prerequisite. It is a step of obedience and a symbol that publicly identifies the believer with Christ. (Romans 6:1-5; Acts 2:41, 8:36-38)

The Lord’s Supper – The Lord’s Supper is a church ordinance in commemoration of the Lord’s death till He comes again. The unleavened bread representing His body, and the cup (nonalcoholic grape juice) symbolic of His blood are the elements used. The Lord’s Supper should be partaken of by scripturally baptized believers only after careful self-examination. (I Corinthians 11:23-32)

End Times – We believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ to raise the dead in Christ, and rapture His saints out of this world, following which there will be a seven-year period of tribulation upon the earth, after which Christ will return with His saints to setup His millennial kingdom, during which Satan shall be bound. At the close of the millennium, Satan is again loosed for a short season, but is afterward banished forever to the lake of Fire. The unsaved will be judged to eternal condemnation at the Great White Throne, and the saved will enjoy eternity with the Lord in Heaven (Matthew 24; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Revelation 6-16; Revelation 20)

Most importantly, we believe anyone can go to heaven. How? We can show you.
