The Bible

 We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally and plenary inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-Breathed, and therefore are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six (66) books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical - historical meaning. We affirm our belief in the Textus Receptus from which the authorized or King James Bible was translated and hereby establish the policy of using only the King James Bible in both our pulpit and teaching ministries and we recommend to our congregation the confidence and use of the King James Bible.                                                                                              

II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21


We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite wisdom, measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself Mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death to all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.                                                         We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and that these three are one God, having precisely the same homage, confidence, and obedience.                                                                                              

Genesis 1:1, 25; John 1:1; 14:16-17; Isaiah 6:8

Jesus Christ                                                                                                        

We believe in the essential deity and virgin birth of our Lord Jesus Christ; that He was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary and having no human father, sinless in His life, and is the true God and true man; that He is man’s only hope of salvation from sin being the only mediator between God and Man; that He died and was buried, and bodily rose again the third day for our sins according to the scriptures; that His return for His church (the Body of Christ which He will take with Himself into Heaven) is imminent; and that He will come to this earth to set up His millennial reign.                               

Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-4 10:30 14:6; Philippians 2:5-8; I Timothy 2:5-6: I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20:4-6

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person; equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature; that He was active in the creation; that in His relation to the unbelieving world, He restrains the evil one until God’s purpose is fulfilled; that He convicts of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; that He bears witness to the truth of the gospel in preaching and testimony; that He is the agent in the new birth; that He seals, baptized, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies, and helps the believer.                                                                     

Genesis 1:1-3; Matthew 3:11; 28:19; Mark 1:8; Luke 1:35; 3:16; 24:49; John 1:33; 3:5-6; 14:16-17, 26; 15:26-27; 16:8-11, 13; Acts 5:30-32; 11:16; Romans 8:14, 16, 26-27; Ephesians 1:13-14; II Thessalonians 2:7, 13; Hebrews 9:14; I Peer 1:2

Regarding the ministry of spiritual gifts, we believe that God is sovereign in the bestowment of all His gifts; that the gifts of evangelist, pastors, teachers, and members are sufficient for the perfecting of the saints today; that speaking in tongues and the working of sign miracles gradually ceased as the New Testament Scriptures were completed and their authority became established.                            

I Corinthians 12:4-11; II Corintians 12:12; Ephesians 4:7-12

We believe that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith, in accord with His own will, for the sick and afflicted.                                                                     

John 15:7; James 5:14-15; I John 5:14-15


We believe that God created man in His own image and that man sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is conscious and eternal separation from God. We believe that all men are born with a sinful nature, evidenced by sinful acts; that man is totally depraved and that if he is not born again, he is eternally lost.                                                                                                                              

Genesis 1:26-27; 3:1-24; Psalm 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9: Luke 16:23; Romans 3:10-12; 5:12; I Corinthians 15:21-22; Revelation 20:11-15, 2:18


We believe that a person is eternally saved when he exercises repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. The believer is kept by the power of God and is eternally secure in Christ.                                                                                                        

John 3:16-18; Acts 20:21                                                                                                   

We believe that the scope of salvation includes forgiveness of all our sin, past, present, and future; a perfect standing before God as in Jesus Christ; and the changing of our earthly body to be conformed like unto the body of our Lord at His return for His own. 

Ephesians 2:8; Romans 8:23-29                                                                                            

We believe that enmity toward God is eternally fixed at death. We further believe that there is an appointed day for the judgment of the wicked, when they shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, there to remain in everlasting conscious punishment and torment.           

John 1:12; 5:24; 10:28-29; Romans 6:23; 8:19-23; II Corinthians 5:21; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Hebrews 9:27; II Peter 2:9; I John 3:2; 5:17; Revelation 20:12-15; 21:8

Eternal Security

We believe that all the redeemed once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever.                                                                               

John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38-39; I Corinthians 1:4-8; I Peter 1:4-5

We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word, which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to sin.                                                 

Romans 13:13-14; Galatians 5:13; Titus 2:11-15

The Church

The Church as the Body of Christ is composed of all true believers in Jesus Christ from the day of Pentecost until the coming of the Lord for the Church. The Body of Christ is being formed by the Holy Spirit, Placing them into this Body of which the Bible speaks. When this Body is complete, the Lord will come for it and take it to Himself as His bride.                                                                             

Matthew 16:158; I Corinthians 12:12-27; Ephesians 1:22; 3:6; 4:15-16

The Local Church Is:

Composed of a local group of believers who are autonomous, self-governing and have no ecclesiastical organization in authority over it; and is completely independent.

Composed of believers who have been baptized by immersion.            

Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12

Composed of believers who are organized. They have for their officers Pastor, and deacons.                                                

Romans 12:3-8; I Corinthians 14:33-40

Composed of believers who meet regularly for fellowship, worship, and Bible study.                                                                                        

Hebrews 10:25

We believe that there are two ordinances for the churches; Baptism and the Lord’s supper. Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water and is properly called “Believers Baptism''. It sets forth in a beautiful and solemn way our identification with Christ is His death, burial, and resurrection and the resultant responsibility to “walk in newness of life”. Baptism is a prerequisite to church membership. The Lord’s Supper is the commemoration of the Lord’s death until He comes, is a reminder of our continual fellowship with Him, and should be preceded by careful self-examination.                                                                               

Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; 8:36-39; Romans 6:3-5; I Corinthians 11:23-32

Composed of believers who carry out the Great Commission.        

Matthew 28:18-20; I Corinthians 11:23; 12:13; I Thessalonians 4:3-18; I Timothy 3:1-13

Divinely authorized to discipline its members if they walk in disobedience to the Word of God.                                                                       

Matthew 18:15-17; Romans 16:17-18; I Corinthians 5:9-13 

Satan and Fallen Angels                                                                                  

We believe that Satan is a fallen angel. He was created perfect, but sinned and became the archenemy of God and His creation. He seeks to keep man from the Lord, and when he cannot succeed in this, he seeks to weaken the testimony of Christians; he has at his command a great host of fallen angels and demons to carry out his purposes. He is not omnipotent, and can be overcome by the power of God. His doom is sealed in the Lake of Fire forever and ever.                                                                                                     

Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezekiel 28:12-19; Revelation 12:10; 20:10

Last Things                                                                                         

We believe there will be a resurrection of all, first the just at the coming of Jesus and finally the unjust after the millennium. The saints are raised forever with the Lord, and the unsaved will be confined for eternity in the Lake of Fire. We believe in the “Blessed Hope” which is the personal, bodily, pre-tribulational, pre-millennial, and imminent return of our Lord and Saviour, for His Church (the rapture) and His later return to the earth in power and glory with His saints to set up His kingdom.                                                                                                    

John 14:13; Acts 1:9-11; 2:25-31; I Corinthians 15:3-20; Philippians 3:20; I Thessalonians 4:14-18; Hebrews 7:25; Revelation 21:1-8   


We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Saviour and Lord; and, that separation form all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices and associations is commanded of God.                                                                    

II Corinthians 6:14; 7:1; II Timothy 3:1-5; I John 2:15-17; II John 9-11


We believe that God created the universe in six literal, 24-hour periods. We reject evolution, the Gap Theory, the Day-Age Theory, and Theistic Evolution as unscriptural theories of origin.

Genesis 1-2; Exodus 20:11

Civil Government                                                                                  

We believe that God has ordained and created all authority consisting of three basic institutions 1) the home 2) the church 3) the state. Every person is subject to these authorities, but all (including the authorities themselves) are answerable to God and governed by His Word. God has given each institution specific Biblical responsibilities with the understanding that no institution has the right to infringe upon the other.                                                                                                              

Romans 13:1-7; Ephesians 5:22-24; Hebrews 13:17; I Peter 2:13-14

Human Sexulity                                                                                      

We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex. Anyone engaging in or approving of fornication, adultery, transvestism, or who is or becomes a trans-sexual is not to be allowed to be a voting member, allowed to partake in the Lord's Supper, or be considered for any leadership role in the church. This includes but is not limited to, pastor, deacon, trustee, Sunday school teacher, nursery worker, usher, greeter, choir member, or bus worker.                                         

Genesis 2:24; 19:5-13; 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; I Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; I Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4   

Divorce and Remarriage

We believe that God hates divorce and intends marriage to last until one of the spouses dies. Divorce and remarriage is regarded as an act of adultery except on the grounds of fornication. Although remarried persons or divorced persons may hold positions of service in the church, and be greatly used of God for Christian service, they may not be a pastor or deacon.                                                                                              

Matthew 19:3-12; Romans 7:1-3; I Timothy 3:1-13 


We believe that human life begins at conception and that the unborn child is a living human being, who is due all of the protection, blessings, and consideration which Christian people bestow upon each other and mankind in general. Abortion constitutes the taking of human life. We further believe that anyone who is involved in a “Crisis Pregnancy” situation, and is contemplating abortion, should seek counsel from the Pastor and his wife; as to how to proceed with the best course of action for the child’s sake, the mother’s sake, and for the glory of God.            

Exodus 21:22-23; Job 3:16; Psalm 51:5; 139:14-16; Isaiah 44:24; 49:1-5; Jeremiah 1:4-5; 20:15-18; Luke 1:44                                                                        


We believe that God has given the church a great commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, ethnic group, and language group who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. As ambassadors of Christ we must use all available means to go to our nation and the foreign nations and not wait for them to come to us. We will do this as personnel and finances allow.   

Matthew 28:1:8; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-48; John 20:21; Acts 1:8; II Corinthians 5:20

Lawsuits Between Believers                                                         

We believe that Christians are prohibited from bringing civil lawsuits against other Christians or the church to resolve personal disputes. We believe the church possesses all the resources necessary to resolve personal disputes between members. We do believe, however, that a Christian may seek compensation for injuries from another Christian’s insurance company as long as the claim is pursued without malice or slander.                                                                                                               

I Corinthians 6:1-8; Ephesians 4:31-32


We believe that every Christian, as a steward of that portion of God’s wealth entrusted to him, is obligated to support his local church financially. We believe that God has established the tithe as a basis for giving, but that every Christian should also give other offerings sacrificially and cheerfully to the support of the church, the relief of those in need, and the spread of the gospel. We believe that a Christian relinquishes all rights to direct the use of the tithe or offering once the gift has been made.                                                                                            

Genesis 14:20; Proverbs 3:9-10; Acts 4:34-37; I Corinthians 16:2; II Corinthians 9:6-7; Galatians 6:6’ Ephesian 4:28; I Timothy 5:17-18; I John 3:17


We believe that the scriptures interpreted in their natural, literal sense reveal divinely determined dispensations or rules of life, which define man’s responsibilities in successive ages. These dispensations are not ways of salvation, but rather are divinely ordered stewardships by which God directs man according to His purpose. Three of these dispensations - the Law, the Church, and the Kingdom - are subjects of detailed revelation in scripture.                                                                                            

Genesis 1:28; I Corinthians 9:17; Ephesians 1:12; 3:2-10; Colossians 1:24-27; Revelation 20:2-6 

Authority of the Statement of Faith                                                                   

The statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole authority and final source of all that we believe. We do believe, however, that the foregoing statement of faith accurately represents the teaching of the Bible, and therefore is binding upon all members.
