A WORD ABOUT US

Our beliefs

  • The Bible - We believe that the King James Version of the Bible, both Old and New Testatments, is the divinely inspired and only authoritative Word of God; supreme and final in its authority in matters of faith and practice.  The Bible stands unique and alone above all books.  II Timothy 3:16
     

  • God - We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who created the world, who made man in His own image and who loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son for man's redemption. Genesis 1:1, 1:27, John 3:16.
     

  • Jesus Christ - We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, Hebrews 1:5-13, that He is coeternal and coequal with God the Father, Philippians 2:6.  We believe the Bible record of His virgin birth, sinless life and that He is true God and true man.  Matthew 1:13-23.  We believe that Christ dies for our sins according to the scriptures as the substitutionary sacrifice.  I Peter 2:24, I Peter 3:18.  We believe in the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His ascension to Heaven and His presence there for us as High Priest and Advocate.  Acts 1:9, Hebrews 7:25.
     

  • Salvation - We believe that the way of salvation of sinners, being born again, is wholly of grace through faith in the atoning death, burial and resurrections of Jesus Christ.
     

  • The Holy Spirit - We believe that God the Holy Spirit, as revealed in the Bible, is a person coequal and coeternal with God the Father and God the Son; that the Holy Spirit bring conviction (awareness of guilt), brings salvation, indwells and seals the believer that he may lead a Godly life; and that the Holy Spirit strengthens faith, brings comfort and peace in time of sorrow and distress, and enlightens our hearts and minds to understand and apply Bible truths.  John 14:16, 16:13,14, Ephesians 4:30.
     

  • Repentance - We believe that repentance is turning from sin and turning to Christ, that true repentance results in a changed life, and the believer now seeks to live his life according to the will of God.  Luke 13:5
     

  • The Return of Christ - We believe in the "blessed hope," the personal, imminent return of Christ, Who will rapture His Church prior to the seven-year tribulation period.  At the end of the Tribulation, Christ will personally and visibly return, with His saints, to establish His earthly Kingdom which was promised to the nation of Israel.  Psalm 89:3-4, Daniel 2:31-45, Zechariah 14:4-11, Revelations 3:10, 19:11-16. 20:1-6.
     

These are just some of the beliefs we hold.  We believe in all things that the Bible is the final authority.
