Doctrine

    We are a fundamental church that uses the King James 1611 Bible, however we don't major on the book of God, but rather on the God of the book. We believe in the fundamentals of the faith, such as the virgin birth of Christ, His death for the sins of the world, and His resurrection from the grave. We are Pre-millennialist in our faith; we believe you serve God because you are a Christian, not to become a Christian.

Articles of Faith

  1. We believe in only one true and living God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost and that these three persons are one God.

  2. We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the Word of God, given to us by the inspiration of God and that the New Testament is the only book of discipline to govern the Church of God; and that Jesus Christ is the only Head and Law-giver of the church.

  3. We believe that all men are sinners by nature, children of wrath, even dead through trespasses and sins and totally unable to recover themselves from their fallen estate by any power of their own.

  4. We believe in the doctrine of election, sovereign, eternal particular individual according to the knowledge of God the Father in sanctification of the spirit, and belief of the truth of Jesus Christ.

  5. We believe that sinners are justified in the sight of God only by God's grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who loved us and gave himself for us.

  6. We believe in the preservation and perseverance of the saints unto the day of redemption of the holy body.

  7. We believe that baptism and the Lord's Supper are the two New Testament ordinances setting forth Christian Doctrines in simple but more impressive symbolism and that the local church is the custodian of these ordinances.

  8. We believe that baptism enjoined upon true believers in Jesus Christ only, was commanded by our Lord to keep His church and that immersion is the scriptural mode for baptism.

  9. We believe that the Lords' Supper was instituted by the Head of the church and given to His Body to be observed humbly and devoutly until He comes again, and that the prerequisites of the Lord's table are three; namely, regeneration of the new birth, baptism , and an orderly life.

  10. We believe that the local church is composed of members who have given acceptable evidence of regeneration involving repentance and faith, who have been baptized and who have covenanted together to give loyal and loving obedience to the commandments of Jesus, the only Head and Law-giver, and that the only scriptural officers are the pastor (also called elder and bishop) and the deacons.

  11. We believe in the resurrection of the dead, and a general judgment, and that the righteous enter into eternal life and the wicked into eternal punishment.

  12. We believe that no person has the right to administer the ordnances of the church, only those who are chosen by the church and have been spiritually set apart to that office.

  13. We believe that all infants that die as such are saved through the atoning death of Christ and by the renewing of the Holy Spirit.

  14. We believe it is the mission of the church to send to every nation the Gospel as the only way of Salvation, according to the positive commandments of Jesus, the Head of the Church which is His body.
