The purpose of this church is to fulfill the
great commission as set forth in the gospels. To proclaim the
Gospel of Jesus Christ with the aim of winning others to faith
in Him; the administration of the ordinances of the New
Testament; the spiritual growth of its members and the spread of
the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
Mathew 28:19-20 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of
the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always,
even unto the end of the world. Amen."
Statement of Faith
We Believe In ---
We believe that love one for another as Jesus
loves the believer manifests our discipleship, proves our love
for God and symbolizes our authority as New Testament churches.
Love is therefore the great commandment of the LORD Jesus Christ
upon which all others are dependent (Mt. 22:35-40; John 13:34,
35; 15:12; 1John 4:7-21; 5:1-3;
Rev. 2:4, 5).
We believe in the infallible, verbal
inspiration of the whole Bible and that the Bible is the
all-sufficient rule of faith and practice. That Almighty God has
providentially verbally preserved the entire Old and New
Testament and provided the world with certain key translations
in different languages. That the King James Version of the Holy
Scriptures is God's preserved word in the English language
painstakingly translated out of the original tongues by reliable
and thoroughly capable men. That the Modern English versions are
corrupt in one or all of the following: their texts, their
translators, and /of their translation method. This church uses
only the King James Version and will not permit any teaching or
preaching from any other English Version (Psa. 119:160; 2Tim.
3:15-15; Psa. 12: 6, 7; Is. 59: 21; Mt. 5:18).
We believe in the personal triune God: Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit, equal in divine perfection (Mt. 28:19).
We believe in the Genesis account of Creation
in six days, and that a literal six days (Gen. 1:2).
We believe that Satan is a fallen angel, the
archenemy of God and man, the unholy god of this world, and that
his destiny is the eternal lake of fire (Isa. 14:12-15; Ezek.
28:11-19; Mt. 25:41; 2Cor. 4:4; Eph. 6: 10-17; Rev. 20:10).
We believe in the miraculous virgin birth and
sinless humanity of Jesus Christ (Mt. 1:18-20; 2Cor. 5:21;
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ (John
10:30; 1:1, 14; 2Cor. 5:19).
We believe the Holy Spirit is the divine
Administrator for Jesus Christ in His churches (Lk. 24:49; John
14:16,17; Acts 1:4, 5, 8; Acts 2:1-4).
We believe that miraculous spiritual
manifestation gifts were done away when the Bible was completed.
Faith, Hope and Love are the vital abiding Spiritual Gifts (1Cor. chapters 12-14).
We believe that man was specially created by
God, in the image of God, and lived in innocency until he fell
by voluntary transgression from his sinless state, the result
being that all mankind are sinners (Gen. 1:26; 3:66-24;
We believe that the suffering and death of
Jesus Christ was substitutionary for all mankind.
We believe in the bodily resurrection and
ascension of Christ and the bodily resurrection of His saints
(Mt. 28:1-7; Acts 1:9-11; 1Cor. 15:42-58; 1Thess.
We believe in the imminent pretribulational
return of Christ to Rapture the Redeemed unto Himself (1Cor.
15:51, 52; 1Thess. 4:14-17).
We believe in the premillennial, personal,
bodily return of Christ as the crowning event of the Gentile
age. This event will include the judgment of the nations and the
establishment of the Millennium Kingdom. This will be followed
by the resurrection of the unrighteous unto eternal punishment
in the lake of fire and that the righteous shall enter the
heaven age (John 14; 1-6; 1Thess. 4:13-18; 2Thess. 2:8; Rev.
19; 20:4-6, 11-15; 21:8 ).
We believe that the depraved sinner is saved
wholly by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. The requisites to
regeneration are repentance toward God and faith in the Lord
Jesus Christ, both gifts of God (Lk. 13:3-5; John 3:16-18; Acts
20:21; Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8,9). The Holy Spirit convicts sinners,
regenerates, seals, secures, and indwells every believer (John
3:6; 16:8,9; Rom. 8:9-11; 1Cor. 6:19,20; Eph. 4:30; Titus
We believe that all who believe on Jesus
Christ alone for salvation are eternally secure in Him and shall
not perish (John 3:36; 5:24; 10:27; Rom. 8:35-39; Heb.
10:39; 1Pet. 1:5).
We believe that God deals with believers as
His children, that He chastises the disobedient, and that He
rewards the obedient (Mt. 16:27; 25:14-23; John 1:12;
Heb. 12:5-11; 2John 8; Rev. 22:12).
We believe that Jesus Christ established His
church during His ministry on earth and that it is always a
local, visible assembly of Scripturally baptized believers in
covenant relationship to carry out the Commission of the Lord
Jesus Christ. Each church is an independent, self-governing
body, and no other ecclesiastical body may exercise authority
over it. We believe that Jesus Christ gave the Great Commission
to the New Testament churches only, and that He promised the
perpetuity of His churches (Mt. 4:18-22; 16:18;
28:19,20; Mk. 1:14-20; John 1:35-51; Eph. 3:21).
We believe that there are two pictorial
ordinances in the Lordís churches: Baptism and the Lord's
Supper. Scriptural baptism is the immersion of penitent
believers in water, administered by the authority of a New
Testament church in the name of the Father, Son, an Holy Spirit.
The Lord's Supper is a memorial ordinance, restricted to the
members of the church observing the ordinance (Mt. 28:19, 20;
Acts 8:12, 38; Rom. 6:4; 1Cor. 5:11-13; 11:1, 2, 17-20,
We believe that there are two divinely
appointed offices in a church, pastors and deacons, to be filled
by men whose qualifications are set forth in Titus and 1
We believe the ecumenical/inter-faith movement
to be part of the prophesied apostasy of the last days and that
all believers and Scriptural must separate from such things
(Mt. 25:33-46; Rom. 16:17, 18; 2Cor. 6:14-17; 2Tim. 4:3, 4; 2Jhn. 1:10, 11).
We believe in freedom of worship without
interference from the government and affirm our belief in civil
obedience, unless the laws and regulations of civil government
run contrary to the Holy Scriptures (Rom. 13:1-7; 1Pet.
