What We Believe
We believe the King James Bible is God's Holy word. It is the preserved word of God in english without any error. Psalms 12:7.
We believe there is only one, living and true God. Genesis 1:1; Exodus 15:11; Psalm 83:18; 139:7-9; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; 15:26.
3. 3. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and God the Son. John 1:1, 14; 3:16; Matthew 1:18-25; Galations 4:4, 5; Philippians 2:6-10; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7; Hebrews 4:14-16; 1 John 2:1, 2.
4. 4. We believe God is a trinity, which consists of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. John 3:5; 14:16, 17, 26; 16:7-14; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:13; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 1:13; 5:18.
5. THE EXISTENCE OF SATAN: who originally was created a holy and perfect being, but through pride and wicked ambition, rebelled against God, thus becoming utterly depraved in character, the great adversary of God and His people, leader of all other evil angels and wicked spirits, the deceiver and god of this present world; that his powers are vast, but strictly limited by the permissive will of God who overrules all his wicked devices for good; that he was defeated and judged at the cross, and therefore his final doom is certain; that we are able to resist and overcome him only in the armor of God , by the Blood of the Lamb and through the Power of the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 6:12; 1 Peter 5:8; 1 John 3:8; Revelation 12:9-11; 20:10.
6. We believe in the Genesis account of creation and it is to be accepted literally, scientifically, and historically accurate. Genesis 1:1, Ex. 20:11, Acts 4:24
7. We believe all mankind are sinners as a result of the voluntary transgression of Adam. Genesis 1:27; 3:6; Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:23; 5:12, 19; Galatians 3:11.
8. We believe eternal life is the free gift of God to "whosoever will" through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ - PLUS NOTHING. We believe that Jesus Christ is the one and only way of salvation. "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Ephesians 2:8,9, John 14:6
9. RIGHTEOUS LIVING AND GODLY WORKS: not as a means of Salvation in any sense, but as its proper evidence and fruit; and therefore as Christians we should obey the Word of our Lord, seek the things which are above, walk as He walked, accept as our solemn responsibility the duty and privileges of bearing the gospel to a lost world; remembering that a victorious and fruitful Christian life is possible only for those who in gratitude for the infinite and undeserved mercies of God, have presented themselves wholly to Christ. Ephesians 2:10; Romans 12:1, 2; Philippians 2:16.
10. THE PRIESTHOOD OF ALL BELIEVERS: that Christ is our Great High Priest and through Him every born-again person has direct access into God's presence without the need of a human priest; that the believer has the right and responsibility to personally study and interpret the Scriptures guided by the Holy Spirit. John 14:6; Hebrews 4:16; 2 Timothy 2:15; 1 Peter 2:1, 5, 9.
11. We believe in a place called hell - exactly as the Bible describes it. A place of fire, brimestone, torments and eternal. We believe anyone (past the age of accountabality) that dies without trusting Jesus Christ will spend eternity in hell. 1 Corinthians 15; 2 Corinthians 5:8-10; Luke 16:19-23; Revelation 20:11-15.
12. We believe that Jesus Christ will one day soon return to earth, bodily, personally, and visibly, to establish His millennial Kingdom for a thousand years of righteous reign. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; James 5:8; Hebrews 10:37; Jude 14, 15; Revelation 12:9-11; 20:10.
13. We are members of a local Baptist church and are independent Baptist in our core beliefs. Acts 2:41, 42 1 Corinthians 11:2; Matthew 28:19, 20.
