WHAT WE BELIEVE

002

The Bible

We believe that God moved Holy men to write both the Old and the New Testaments of the Bible and in their original languages is without error and without mistakes in its entirety, including the content, word selection and word order. We believe the King James Version is the best English translation of the original texts.

God

We believe that God exists in three distinct persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit but has never and can never function separate from the other. We believe that God has always existed, that He knows everything, is powerful enough to do anything and that there is nowhere in this life we can go that He is not there.

Man

We believe that God created man by a direct act on the sixth day of creation, that man was made in the image of God but sinned and cursed all mankind with a nature to do bad instead of good, and that man’s soul will live somewhere forever.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus is God in human flesh, was born of a virgin, identified Himself as the Son of God, shed His blood and died on the cross in our place to make all who believe acceptable to God, the resurrection of His body from the tomb, and His complete and absolute power to save men from sin.

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is God, is a Person and not a force, is the Person of the Godhead that draws men to God for salvation, is the Person that permanently lives in every believer for the purpose of guiding and teaching them more about Jesus Christ and not Himself and the Person that molds believers in Christ’s image.

The Church

We believe the local Church to be God’s agent for evangelization in this age, and are made up of persons who are saved and baptized by immersion; the two ordinances of the local Church are water baptism and communion.
