Statement of Faith



 

Any Statement of Faith is a human production and therefore subject to human error. The Christian should judge every declaration by the words of Scripture (Acts 17:11).  
 

  • We believe that the AV 1611, King James Bible is the preserved and infallible word of God (II Tim. 3:16; Pro. 8:8; Psalm 119:89,142,144, 152,160; Eccl. 3:14; 8:4; II Tim. 1: 13; I Tim. 6:3-5; Psalm 12:6,7; Pro. 30:5).

 

  • We believe in The One True God of Israel who is manifested as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4,5; Genesis 1:26; 18:1-8; Matt. 28:19).

 

  • We believe in the Deity, Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Atoning Death, Burial, Bodily Resurrection, Glorious Second Coming, and Messianic, Earthly, Davidic Throne and Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 1; Luke 1; I Corinthians 15:1-4).

 

  • We believe that salvation is the free gift from God to the believer, is received by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and is from everlasting fire and from the temporal power of sin (Rom. 5:15; Eph. 2:8,9).

 

  • We believe in the Reformation Bible doctrines of justification by faith alone, the right and responsibility of every person to read the Scriptures, and the spiritual priesthood of every believer (Matt. 4:4; Romans 3-5; I Peter 2).

 

  • We believe in sanctification, holy living, good works, obedience to God’s commands, repentance from sins, and restitution, in their scriptural context (Romans 6:22; Titus 3:5-8).

 

  • We believe that every born-again believer is a child of God, eternally secure, and awaits the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to resurrect and rapture His children (John 1:14; 10:28; I Thess. 4:13-18; 1:9,10; I Corinthians 15).

 

  • We believe in the two Scriptural ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper (I Corinthians 1; 11).

 

  • We believe that The Lord Jesus is the Messiah (Christ) of Israel and will return bodily to this earth to fulfill all Messianic prophecies regarding Israel and the Gentile Kingdoms (Daniel 2; Isaiah 9; Luke 1; Romans 11; Revelation 11).

 

  • We believe that the local Church was instituted by God  and is a physical gathering of saved, born-again children of God. The local church is where God's people are to be edified, encouraged, and equipped for the Christian  life and ministry and is to be operated free from entanglements with State and/or Ecclesiastical Hierarchies (Ephesians 5; Acts 2; 4; 5; 20; I Timothy 3; I Peter 5).
