Statement of Faith

  1. We believe in the inspiration, infallibility, and inerrancy of the Holy Scriptures—both the Old and New Testaments (Job 32:8; cf. 33:4; Psalm 19:7; 119:160; II Timothy 3:15-17; II Peter 1:19-21).
  2. We believe the King James Bible is the infallible, inerrant, given by inspiration, perfectly preserved word and words of God. Therefore, it is our first and final authority on all matters of faith and practice (Job 32:8; cf. 33:4; Psalm 12:6, 7; 19:7; 119:89, 152, 160; Ecclesiastes 3:14; Matthew 24:35; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Timothy 3:15-17; Romans 1:17; 10:17; James 1:22; I Peter 1:23-25; II Peter 1:19-21; Revelation 22:18, 19).
  3. We believe in the doctrine of the Godhead—aka, the Trinity (Genesis 1:1, 26; Matthew 3:16, 17; John 1:1, 2, 14; 10:30; Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20, 21; Colossians 2:9; I John 5:7).
  4. We believe that God created everything in six literal days (Genesis 1, 2; Exodus 20:11; John 1:1-3, 14; Colossians 1:16-18; Hebrews 1:1-4; 11:1-3).
  5. We believe in the deity, virgin birth, humanity, sinlessness, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 110:1; Isaiah 41:3; 43:11; Matthew 3:16, 17; John 1:1-3, 14; 10:30; Hebrews 1; I John 5:7, 20; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 2:1-21; John 4:5-8; II Corinthians 5:21; Matthew 27; Mark 15:42-47; John 20; Romans 5:8; I Corinthians 15:1-6, 20).
  6. We believe in the deity, person, and ministry of the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Romans 8:11; 10:9; II Corinthians 3:17; Ephesians 4:30; John 14:16; 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 5:18; Titus 3:5).
  7. We believe that all men are sinners (Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:10-12, 23; 5:12; Ephesians 2:1-9).
  8. We believe that a man is saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and His shed blood on the cross. When a lost sinner repents (i.e., changes his mind and attitude about self, sin, and God), and at the same time, places his trust on Jesus for salvation, he is saved and is a new creature (Luke 13:3, 5; Acts 20:21; John 1:12; 3:1-18; Romans 10:9-13; Acts 26:20; II Corinthians 5:17). Those who reject Christ end up in hell forever (Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8).
  9. We believe in the eternal security of the believer (John 10:27-30; Philippians 1:6; I John 5:11-13).
  10. We believe in the doctrine of separation (II Corinthians 6:10-7:1; Romans 1:1).
  11. We believe in the ministry of the local church (Luke 14:23; Acts 2:46, 47; 5:42).
  12. We believe in the Blessed Hope—aka the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the church (I Corinthians 15:51-58; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 3:10; 4:1, 2).
  13. We believe in the literal Second Coming of Christ and His millennial kingdom on earth (Matthew 24, 25; Revelation 19; 20:1-6).
  14. We reject Calvinism, Arminianism, Lordship Salvation, Quick-prayerism, CCM, and the theory of evolution.
