We believe that the King James Bible is the preserved and perfect translation of the word of God into english. It is the final authority of our church in all doctrine and practice.
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 that we are saved by grace through faith and not by any good works we do. Trusting the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ is the only requirement for salvation.
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
We believe that repentance, in regards to being saved, is when a person turns from their unbelief or stops trusting whatever else it was before they put their full trust and hope on Christ alone. “Turning from your sins” is a good work believers should strive to do but it is not a requirement to be saved.
Acts 20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the eternal security of the believer (once saved, always saved). Being saved is a one time event that can never be lost. We are kept saved by Jesus and not by our good works.
John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
We believe there are three distinct persons in the Godhead, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost and these three are one (the trinity).
1 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.
We believe that Jesus is God manifested in the flesh and is therefore 100% man and 100% God.
1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
We believe that those who are not saved will spend eternity in a literal lake of fire called hell.
Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
We believe that water baptism is by immersion and only for born-again believers.
Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
We believe that life begins at conception and any process that intentionally terminates a pregnancy after conception is murder.
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
We believe that marriage is a life-long, monogamous relationship between a man and a woman and any sexual act outside of this institution is a sin (eg. homosexuality, de facto).
Matthew 19:5-6 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
We believe that God created the world in 6 literal 24 hour days approximately 6000 years ago.
Exodus 20:11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
We believe that the resurrection of the saints (the rapture) will take place after the tribulation but before God pours out his wrath on this earth.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 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.
We believe that Jesus is coming back to establish his millennial kingdom on the earth. This will be followed by the creation of a new heaven and a new earth, the eternal state with his saints.
2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
