Our Beliefs
We believe there is one true and living God and He exists in three
persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
(1 John 5:7  Matt. 28:19   1 Tim. 3:16)  

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ was God manifested in the flesh
and was born of a virgin.
(1 Tim. 3:16   1 John 5:20   Matt. 1:20-25)

We believe all of mankind are natural born sinners and inherit their
sin nature from Adam.
(Gen. 5:1-5   Rom. 3:10-23)

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for the sins of the whole
world, was buried and physically rose from the dead three days
later.  This is the gospel of the grace of God.  
(1 Cor. 15:1-4   Gal. 1:3-9   1 John 2:1-2)

We believe salvation is by grace through faith in the finished blood
atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ.  This salvation is offered as a
free gift and is received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  
We are not Calvinists.
(Acts 16:30-31   Eph. 2:8-9   Rom. 10:8-13)

We believe in the eternal security of every true born again child of
God.
(Eph. 1:12-13   Phil. 1:6   Rom. 8:35-39)

We believe water baptism is by immersion and is a figure of the
death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
(Matt. 28:19-20   Acts 8:36-38)

We believe the scriptures are inspired and preserved and are found
today in the 66 books of the King James Authorized Version Holy
Bible. This Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and
practice.
(Psa. 12:6-7   2 Tim. 3:16   Eccl. 8:4   Prov. 30:5)

We believe the Bible is to be rightly divided in order to be
understood, you must be born again to interpret the Word of God.  
(2 Tim. 2:15)

We believe in the autonomy of the local church, therefore, we are
independent and are not governed by any convention, fellowship or
denominational headquarters.

We believe Heaven is a literal place where the saved reside with
God.  
(John 14:1-3)

We believe Hell is on fire and a soul goes there by rejecting God’s
provision for their sin.
(Luke 16:19-31   Matt. 25:41)

We believe Christians are to witness and win others to the Lord
Jesus Christ.  
(Acts 1:8   2 Cor. 5:18-20)

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming again. He will translate
the body of Christ out of his world and return physically to
Jerusalem some seven years later to set up His 1,000-year
kingdom.  The intervening time period between the catching away
and the Second Advent is known as the great Tribulation when God
will renew His dealings with the nation of Israel.  
(1 Thess. 4:13-18 ,  Rev. 19:11-16; Rev. 20:1-7 ,  Rom. 11:25-27)
