Inspiration of Scriptures - We believe that the Bible, as contained in the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament, in original writings, is the verbally inspired Word of God. We believe that this Bible is without error, the only infallible rule of faith and practice, and is the supreme and final authroity in our life. (Matthew 24:35, 2 Tim. 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21, 1 Thess. 2:13, Psalm 19:7-11, 1 Cor. 2:13) (KJB) 

The Trinity or Godhead - We believe that God is triune; that there are three eternal co-equal, divine persons in the Godhead, and that these three, God the Father, the son of God Jesus Christ , and Holy Spirit are one God. (Matt. 28:19, Deut. 6:4, Mark 12:29, John 1:1-4, Acts 5:3-4) (KJB) 

Person and Work of God the Father - We believe in God the Father, a perfect Spirit in whom all things have their source, support, and end. He is perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power, everywhere present, never changing, everlasting, and ever loving. He hears and answers prayer, and accepts those who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (Rev. 4:11, Mal. 3:6, John 4:24, Psalm 99:9, 147:5, 139:7-12, Isaiah 44:24, 1 John 4:8, John 14:6) (KJB) 

Person and work of God the Son Who He is - We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is the true God and true man. (John 1:2, 14, Luke 1:35, Matt. 1:18-25) (KJB) 

What He did - We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, as the representative and substitutionary sacrifice for our sins, and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (1 Cor. 15:3-4, 1 Peter 2:24, Eph. 1:7, Rom. 4:25) (KJB) 

What He does now - We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven, where He is now exalted at the right hand of God, and ministers as our High Priest and intercessor. (Acts 1:9-10, Heb. 4:14-16, 7:25, 1 John 2:1, Rom. 10:9)(KJB) 

What He will do - We believe in the “Blessed Hope,” the personal, imminent, pre-tribulation, and pre-Millennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for redeemed ones; and in His subsequent return to the earth with His saints to establish His Millennial Kingdom. (1 Thess. 1:10, 4:13-18, Zech. 14:4-11, Rev. 9:11, 20:1-6, 1 Thess. 5:9, Rev.3:10) (KJB) 

Person and Work of the Holy Spirit - We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity, the Agent of conviction of sin, regeneration, indwelling, comfort, sanctification, and illumination of all who are born into God’s family through believing in Jesus Christ. (II Cor. 13:14; John 14:16-17; John 16:7-11) (KJB) 

Man and Depravity - We believe that man was created in the image of God with a body, soul and spirit; that he sinned and there by incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and become sinners in thought, word, and deed. (Gen. 1:26-27, 1 Thess. 5:23, Rom. 3:23, 5:12, Eph. 2:1-3, Psalm 51:5, 58:3) (KJB) 

Salvation - We believe that man is totally unable to save himself, because of his sinful nature and his guilt in the original sin of Adam. All men, therefore, deserve eternal punishment in Hell. We further believe that God, who is rich in mercy sent His only son, Jesus, to be our Savior; for the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, as the representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood; and furthermore, are eternally saved, in the light of the perfect, finished work of Christ. (Rom. 3:23, 5:12, 6:23, 10:9, John 3:36, 1 Cor. 15:2-4, Rom. 4:5, 4:24, 5:21, John 10:28-29) (KJB) 

Eternal Security - We believe that all true believers are saved with an eternal salvation, are kept by God’s power, and are thus secure in Christ forever (John 6:37-39, 10:28-29, Rom. 8:37-39, 1 Cor. 1:4-8, Phil. 1:6) (KJB) 

Faith’s Evidence - We believe that the true believer is responsible to live a godly, consistent Christian life; and that the evidence of saving faith is manifested in a true desire to live in a manner that is pleasing to God. (Rom. 8:5-9, Gal. 5:16-25, Titus 2:13,-15, Eph. 2:10, 2 Cor. 5:17) (KJB) 

Satan - We Believe in the existence of Satan, the Devil, who was created a perfect angelic being; who willfully led a host other angels in rebellion against God before the world began; and who is the author of sin and wickedness; who is the accuser of saints and tempter of all men; and who shall be tormented in the lake of fire with his followers at the end of time. We further believe that he is the deceiver and god of this present world; that his powers are vast, but strictly limited by the permissive will of God. 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 he blood of lamb and through the power of the Holy Spirit. (Isa. 14:12-17, Ezekiel 28:12-19, Rev. 12:10, Matt. 4:1-11, Rev. 20:10-15, 1 John 3:8, Heb. 2:14, Eph. 2:2, 2 Cor. 4:4, Job 1:6-12, 2:1-7, Luke 22:31-32) (KJB) 

The Church : A Local Assembly - We believe that the establishment and continuance of the local independent churches are clearly taught in the New Testament: that they are the manifestations of the living body of Christ until the Rapture; that they are organized for the purpose of ministering Christ to the lost world and for worship, edification, and fellowship for the believers. We believe in the independence and autonomy of the local church; that each New Testament church is free to govern itself without ecclesiastical interference, and should cooperate with other New Testament churches as the Holy Spirit leads; that it is the responsibility of the church to follow the pattern of the New Testament and is directly accountable to God. (Acts 13:1-3, 14:24-27, Gal. 1:2, Titus 1:5-11, Matt. 28:19-20, 1 Cor. 12:27) (KJB) 

The Church Commission: Two Ordinances 

Baptism - We believe that baptism is the immersion of a true believer into the water in the name of the Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit; that it is in obedience to Christ following conversion; that it is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of the Savior, and likewise of the believer in his regeneration experience as passing from death unto life; and that water baptism is not the door, (automatic membership), of the local church and that baptism has no saving merit.(Rom. 6:1-10, Matt. 3:13-17, Acts 8:36-38, 2:41, Matt. 28:19-20, 1 Peter 3:21, Acts 9:18, 16:14-15 and 33) (KJB) 
The Lord’s Supper - We believe that the Lord’s Supper is an observance commemorating the death of our Lord on Calvary; that the provision of bread and fruit of the vine are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood; that that partaking is only for the truly regenerated believers; and that faithful self examination should precede its observance; and that the ordinance has no saving merit. (Matt. 26:21-30, 1 Cor. 11:17-34) (KJV) 

Christ’s Return : The Second Coming - We believe that Christ may at any time return in the air to rapture the saints and that there shall be a seven year tribulation period, after which He will come to the earth with His saints, and rule for a thousand years (The Millennial Kingdom). After this, the wicked will be judged and cast into the lake of fire. We believe in that “Blessed Hope” the personal, imminent, pre-tribulation,a and pre-millennial return of the our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Rev. 3:10, 1 Cor. 15:51-57, Matt. 24: 15-31) (KJB) 

Final Judgement : Our Eternal State - We believe in the bodily ressurection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost. (John 5:28-29, Matt. 25:46, 2 Cor. 5:8, Phil. 1:23) (KJB) 

Saved - We believe that the spirits of the saved at death go immediately to be with Christ in Heaven, that their works shall be brought before the judgement seat of Christ for the determination of rewards which will take place at the time when Christ comes for His own and that a man regenerated through Jesus Christ has the blessed hope and joy of eternial life with God in Heaven and in the new Heaven and earth to be established at the end of time. (Eccl. 12:7, 1 Cor. 3:11-15, 2 Cor. 5:10, John 3:16, 2 Peter 1:4, Rev. 21:1-21) (KJB) 

The Unsaved - We believe tha the spirits of the unsaved at death descend immediately into Hell, where they are kept under punishment until the final day of judgement, at which time their bodies shall be raised from the grave, that they sahll be judged and cast into the Great Lake of Fire, the place of final and everlasting punishment. We believe that a man rejecting Christ as his personal savior is doomed to this just and eternal punsihment. (Heb. 9:27, Luke 16:19-31, Rev. 20:10-15, John 3:17-21, 3:35-36) (KJB) 

Concerning Moral Values - Whereas this ministry is committed to preserve Scriptural morals in the face of outside social influences seeking to degrade the Biblical family, pervert the moral values of our nation, and intimidate God’s people from speaking God’s truth in love. We believe the Biblical definition of marriage is the joining of one biological man and one biological woman. (Gen. 2:24, Matt. 19:4-6) (KJB)
