Statement Of Faith

The Bible
We believe the Authorized King James Bible is the Holy, Inspired and Inerrant Word of God. We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. We use only the King James Bible. It has been preserved by the Power of God and is established forever. It is our final authority on all faith, doctrine and conduct. "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son" Hebrews 1:1-2 KJV

God
We believe there is one eternal God that exists in three persons – God the Father, God the Son. and God the Holy Ghost. All three persons of the Godhead are equal, yet are one thrice Holy God. God created all things and rules over all things.

Jesus Christ
We believe Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, who left the glories of Heaven to take on a body in order to die for the sins of all mankind. He was born of a virgin, lived a spotless, perfect, holy life and then gave his life to reconcile man back to God. Christ died, was buried, and bodily rose again three days later. It is only by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his finished work on Calvary, that a man can know God’s salvation and the free pardon of sin.

Salvation
We believe that all men are sinners in need of a Saviour. A man without Christ is condemned to a literal burning hell for all of eternity. Yet God who is rich in mercy made a way of salvation available to anyone and everyone. Christ paid our wages of sin so that “whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16b KJV) Once a man is saved, he is saved forever and will spend his eternity with Christ.

The Christian Life
We believe the moment someone trusts the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour they begin a whole new life in Christ. They immediately receive the Holy Spirit who guides, teaches, and chastens us to get closer to the Lord. A Christian should live a separated life dedicated to serving God, his Word, and focus daily on being a light in a dark world. We also believe that every Christian is to be part of a local New Testament Church where they can learn and grow in the grace of God.
