Statement of Faith

What do we Believe?

We Believe

πŸ“– The Old and New Testament of the Bible, the 1611 Authorized Version, which β€œis given by inspiration of God” (2 Timothy 3:16), is the Final Authority in all matters of faith and practice. (Isaiah 34:16, 2 Peter 1:19-21)
πŸ“– The One living and true God is manifested in three distinct Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal and united in the Godhead. (1 John 5:7; Matthew 3:15-17; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
πŸ“– The Lord Jesus Christ, who is β€œGod manifest in the flesh,” gave himself and shed his precious blood at the cross of Calvary for forgiveness of sin and for the redemption of man. He literally, physically resurrected from the dead and ascended to heaven. (2 Timothy 3:16, 1 Peter 1:18, Ephesians 1:8, Romans 1:4; 1 Corinthians 15)
πŸ“– The salvation of sinners from the penalty of sin in the literal Hell-fire is by grace through faith in this church age. Once a man believes and accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as his own personal savior, he is saved and sealed with the holy Spirit unto the day of redemption. (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:13; 2:8; 4:30)
πŸ“– The Body of Christ is a spiritual body called The Church composed of all saved ones (1 Corinthians 12: 13; Ephesian 5: 23-32); it will soon be caught up in the air at the imminent return of Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonian 4:16-18) to take His β€œBride” away before the Tribulation Period
πŸ“– The Second Coming of Jesus Christ after the Great Tribulation will be for the salvation of the Jews, the doomed of the Anti-Christ, after which Christ will establish His earthly visible Kingdom and His Throne in Jerusalem to reign over all the Earth for a thousand years. (1 Samuel 7:16; Psalms 89:34-37; Isaiah 9:7; Romans 11:26; Revelation 19:11-16)
πŸ“–The local church is an organized assembly of professing Christians baptized by immersion lead and ruled by an ordained pastor for the spiritual purposes of worship, prayer, teaching and preaching the Bible, evangelistic and missionary endeavors, mutual aid, and, as a testimony for Jesus Christ to the community. (Ephesians 4:11; Hebrew 13:7, 17; I Peter 5:1-3 ; Acts 4, 11, 13, 14, 16; Revelation 1:2).
