Statement of faith

the Bible

The sole basis of our belief is the Bible, God’s infallible and inerrant written Word. The 66 books of the Bible consisting of 39 Old Testament and 27 New Testament books also known as the First and Second Covenants unfold for us Gods Plan to Save sinful Humanity. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it was written without error (inerrant) in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks. 2 Peter 1:21, 2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12, Psalm 119:89.

We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. Because of the specialized calling of the Church, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation of content is based upon the Bible alone, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us.

Our church

What we believe

There is One true God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each of whom possess equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality. Matthew 28:19, 1 John 5:61 John 5:71 John 5:8

Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. Hence, He is perfect Deity and true Humanity united in one person forever. John 1:1, John 1:2, John 1:3, John 1:4, John 1:5

Jesus lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for human sin by dying on the cross as a substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone. 2 Corinthians 5:21

He rose from the dead in the same body, {though glorified} in which He lived and died. John 20:27John 20:28

He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and humanity, continually makes intercession for His own. 1 Timothy 2:5, 1 Timothy 6:15

Adam and Eve were originally created in the image of God. Genesis 1:26-27. They sinned by disobeying God; and became alienated from their Creator. That historic fall brought all people under divine condemnation. Romans 5:12

As a result human nature is corrupt, all people are totally unable to please God. Everyone is in need of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit Through the New Birth the result of believing the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Romans 3:23, Titus 3:4-6

Salvation is wholly a work of God’s free Grace and Love (Lamentations 3:22-23) and is not the work {in whole or in part} of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. Ephesians 2:8. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justifies them in His sight. Romans 4:22-25

It is the privilege of all who are born again of the Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the very moment in which they trust Christ as their Savior Romans 8:15-17. This assurance is not based upon any kind of human merit, but is produced by the witness of the Holy Spirit, who confirms in the believer the testimony of God in His written word.

The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to individuals. He convicts John 16:8 and draws sinners to Christ, imparts new life to them, continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth and seals them until the day of redemption Ephesians 1:12Ephesians 1:13Ephesians 1:14. His fullness, power and control are appropriated in the believer’s life by faith and Obedience to God’s Word.

Believers are called to live so in the power of the indwelling Spirit that they will not fulfill the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16Galatians 5:17, Galatians 5:18) but will bear fruit to the glory of God as the evidence of conversion. Galatians 5:22-24Galatians 5:25-26.

Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body, which is composed of all people, living and dead, who have been joined to Him through saving faith Colossians 1:17-18Colossians 1:19. He is also the Foundation upon which the Church is Built. Matthew 16:16-17Matthew 16:18.

God admonishes His people to assemble together regularly for worship, for participation in ordinances, for edification through the Scriptures and for mutual encouragement. Hebrews 10:24-25.

At physical death the believer enters immediately into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord and awaits the resurrection of their body to everlasting glory and blessing. 2 Corinthians 5:6-72 Corinthians 5:8.

At physical death the unbeliever enters immediately into eternal, conscious separation from the Lord and awaits the resurrection of the body to everlasting judgment and condemnation. John 3:18, Revelation 20:11, Revelation 20:12Revelation 20:13Revelation 20:14-15.

Jesus Christ will come again to the earth – personally, visibly and bodily – to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. Mark 13:25-26Mark 13:27,Revelation 1:7Revelation 1:8Revelation 1:9.

The Lord Jesus Christ commanded all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to disciple people from every nation. The fulfillment of that Great Commission requires that all worldly and personal ambitions be subordinated to a total commitment to “Him who loved us and gave Himself for us.” Matthew 28:19Matthew 28:20

We Believe God has assigned specific responsibilities/roles to His people, both in the Church and the Home. 1 Corinthians 11:2-3, Titus 1:5-6Titus 1:7, 1 Timothy 3:2, Titus 2:3-5.

We Believe in the Sanctity of Marriage being between one Man and one Women for as long as they both shall live in this life Ephesians 5:25. The two shall become one in the consummation of their union (Genesis 2:24) and that Children should be raised and admonished in the fear of the Lord. Proverbs 22:6, Proverbs 13:24, Proverbs 29:15-17, Hebrews 12:11.v

We Believe that a Fetus is a Baby, a full Human Being from Conception – Birth and if at any point in that process an abortion is performed it is the taking of a life and God will Judge all Murderers. Psalm 106:37,38.

We believe in a malevolent  being called Satan who in rebellion sought to dethrone God his maker and in that rebellion coerced and deceived a third of the Angels. As a result of that rebellion they became demons who seek to undermine God and keep mankind bound in their sin with deceptive doctrine taught by false teachers. Thereby creating a Multiplicity of religious systems that have not the Truth. Jesus calls him a Liar and a Murderer from the beginning.  His fall (Isaiah 14:12),  His Accusations against the Righteous (Job 1:7-8), His characteristics seen in men (John 8:44), His work in the world (1 Timothy 4:1-2), His Final Destination (Revelation 20:10).

We believe True Conversion {that is to be Born Again, John 3:3}  is Verified by evidence. These are as follows: This list is by no means Exhaustive but serves as a Diagnostic tool.  2 Corinthians 13:5, Matthew 7:22-23.

  • A New Disposition. That means the unbeliever who is now a believer has a new Pattern for Life they are no longer what they once were. Their Inclination for sin, is now an Inclination against it, having been replaced with the pursuit of holy living.

  • They have gone from one extreme to another, having no Appetite for the things of God is now a Hunger for Him and a desire to to Know and obey Him through His Word the Bible, for it is the Scriptures that feed {spiritually speaking} the New Babe in Christ just as a new born baby cries for Milk so too does the New Born Christian cry for the spiritual Milk that is God’s Word. 1 Peter 2:2

  • The believer wants the Truth, they want fellowship with other believers therefore they seek out a Bible Believing, Bible Teaching Church where they can Grow becoming Disciples for Christ as the fellowship of Gods people is deigned to do.  Feeding on Milk is no longer adequate it is the Meat of Gods Word that is now of Necessity. Hebrews 5:12

  • The Believer Sees Clearly the Light from the Darkness, The Lie from the Truth and begins to stand on what they know to be the truth as taught in the Word of God. John 8:32

  • The believer wants others to know what they have found in the Person of Christ, they seek every and any opportunity to talk about their Savior and the Salvation that is Found in Him Alone. Taste and See that the Lord is Good!

last thoughts

We are the Church of the Living God and all are welcome to come and here what God has done for sinners of which we all suffered and were under the Righteousness Condemnation and Wrath of God (Romans 3:23). But God being rich in Mercy and Love (1 John 4:8)did not just sit by and allow the devil to ruin His intended purpose for Humanity on this Earth but sent us a Savior, One who would Restore what sin had broken and in the end destroy sin, it’s consequences, and it’s author, Forevermore. Genesis 3:14-15, Matthew 1:20-21, 1 John 3:8, Revelation 21:4Revelation 21:5.

We know and understand that there is no such thing as a Perfect Christian, only those that are being Perfected by Christ (Hebrews 10:14) by putting sin away due to the new disposition given in Salvation (1 Corinthians 6:91 Corinthians 6:101 Corinthians 6:11). This new Disposition is the driving component that the Spirit of God uses to take us in another direction. The Genuine Christian is Not Sinless and will never be this side of Heaven, However as the Genuine Christian Grows and Matures in the things of God They Sin Less.” This is the Portrait of the Child of God, because it is who Jesus, God the Son always was, and always will be. The Sinless Lamb of God who takes away then sin of the world. May you believe on Him Today, Your Eternal Destination Depends On It (Luke 16:19-21Luke 16:22-23, Revelation 20:11Revelation 20:12, Revelation 20:13Revelation 20:14-15).
