Statement of Faith

We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His vicarious death for sinners, His literal bodily resurrection and His literal bodily return to earth to reign for 1000 years. - I Timothy 3:16

We believe that any religious person who depends upon the sacraments, or the golden rule, or the church, or water baptism, or the ten commandments to justify himself before God will be condemned before the White Throne of Judgement and banished to the Lake of Fire for trusting their own righteousness instead of Jesus Christ's righteousness. -        Romans 4:5; Ephesians 2:8-9

We believe that water baptism is for the regenerated believer. It is performed by immersion in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, and is not essential for salvation. - Matthew 28:19; Acts 8:36-37; Acts 10:47

Baptism and the Lord's Supper constitute the only two Scriptural ordinances for the church, but neither has any saving power. - Luke 22:19-20; Matthew 28:19

We believe in the eternal security of the believer as part of the body of the Lord Jesus Christ and we subscribe to a mild dispensationalism when dealing with those verses that tend to teach otherwise. - John 10:28

We believe that Christians should attempt to live godly lives and separate themselves as much as possible from the world and its lust and entanglements. That they should encourage and minister to one another and give liberally to the support of any Bible-believing ministry that is actively winning people to Jesus Christ. - Romans 12:1

We believe in absolute separation of church and state and that the state has no business dictating to any local church how they should conduct their services, ministries, business, or property matters. - Acts 5:29

We believe in the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ to this earth to catch out His "bride" before The Great Tribulation (the "Time of Jacob's Troubles") takes place. That he will return after the "Marriage of the Lamb" to reign over the "House of Jacob" at Jerusalem on the "Throne of David." - John 14:3; Revelation 19
