We believe that the 66 books of the King James Version are the preserved and inspired Word of God for this generation.
We believe that the Bible is without any errors and is our sole authority for all matters of faith and practice.
We believe in
the Holy Trinity. That there is one God who has eternally existed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each person
of the Godhead is fully God.
We believe that God created the world and all the universe in six, literal, 24-hour days as recorded
in Genesis. We do not believe in the day-age theory or any other theory that attempts to reconcile evolution with the Bible.
God created the world out of nothing by speaking his word.
We believe Jesus Christ is fully God from the beginning. His
earthly existence began when He was begotten by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary. Jesus Christ lived a perfect, sinless life.
He was fully God, yet fully man.
We believe He shed His blood on the cross for our sins. He was buried, and bodily arose
from the grave. He ascended up to Heaven from whence He will return one day.
We believe that all men are born with the
sin nature inherited from Adam. This sin nature manifests itself in all mankind. All men, apart from the saving
grace of God, will spend eternity in Hell as punishment from a holy God.
We believe that salvation is by grace, through
faith. Man cannot work or earn his way to Heaven. Salvation comes by trusting in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
a person trusts in and relies upon the blood of Christ to save him, he is regenerated and immediately indwelt by the Holy Spirit.
This indwelling of the Holy Spirit is not evidenced by speaking in tongues, but by godly living. A saved person possesses eternal
life. He is saved NOW. This is a permanent work of grace, never to be repeated. Salvation cannot be lost.
Once saved; always saved.
We believe a saved person should live a holy, sanctified life. Worldliness should not characterize
the Christian's life.
Once a person is saved, they should be baptized by immersion, join a good Bible-preaching church,
witness to the lost, and faithfully serve the Lord.
We believe in the personal, pre-tribulation return of Jesus in the air
to rapture out the believers. After this rapture, there will be a 7-year Great Tribulation, followed by the physical return
of Jesus to the earth to set up His Kingdom and reign for 1,000 years.
The saved will spend eternity in Heaven with the Lord.
The unsaved will be cast into a literal Lake of Fire to suffer conscious torment forever and ever.
*These are just some
of the beliefs we hold. We regularly say, "Whatever the Bible says is true."
