Doctrinal Statement

Doctrinal Statement

I.                   WE BELIEVE IN THE INSPIRATION OF THE BIBLE; THE BIBLE IS THE VERBALLY INSPIRED WORD OF GOD       (II TIMOTHY 3:16-17; ACTS 1:16).

II.                WE BELIEVE THAT THE KING JAMES BIBLE IS GOD’S INFALLIBLE AND PRESERVED WORD OF GOD FOR US TODAY (ISAIAH 40:6-8; I PETER 1:23,25; II PETER 1:21) WE ARE KING JAMES VERSION ONLY.

III.             WE BELIEVE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE AND LIVING GOD EXISTING IN THREE PERSONS: THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT (GENESIS 1:1; MATTHEW 28:19; JOHN 1:1-3)

IV.             WE BELIEVE IN THE DEITY, VIRGIN BIRTH AND BODILY RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST (MATTHEW 1:18-25; LUKE 1:26-27; MARK 16:1-6)

V.                WE BELIEVE THAT SALVATION IS “BY GRACE”, PLUS NOTHING AND MINUS NOTHING. THE CONDITION TO SALVATION ARE REPENTANCE AND FAITH (MARK 1:14; JOHN 3:3-6,16,10:28-29; ACTS 16:31; ROMANS 4:3-5;   I TIMOTHY 2:5-6).

VI.             WE BELIEVE IN THE SECURITY OF THE BELIEVER (JOHN 10:27; ROMANS 8:31-34,38-39; I CORINTHIANS 6:19; HEBREWS 2:10).

VII.          WE BELIEVE IN THE ETERNAL BLESSEDNESS OF THE SAVED IN HEAVEN AND THE ETERNAL PUNISHMENT OF THE LOST IN HELL (MATTHEW 25:46; JOHN 5:28-29; REVELATIONS 20:14-15,21:4).

VIII.       WE BELIEVE IN THE PERSONAL, VISIBLE, AND PERMILLENNIAL, RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST                   (I THESSALONIANS 4:13-18).

IX.             WE BELIEVE THAT THE SO CALLED CHARISMATIC EXPERIENCE IS BOTH A DOCTRINAL AND PRACTICAL ERROR AND THEREFORE, NEITHER TO BE SOUGHT AFTER NOR PRACTICED (I CORINTHIANS CHAPTERS 12,13,14; I CORINTHIANS 14:40).   

X.                WE BELIEVE THAT A LOCAL CHURCH IS AN ORGANIZED BODY OF BELIEVERS IMMERSED UPON CREDIBLE CONFESSION OF FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. RECONGNIZING ONLY TWO OFFICE (FILLED BY PASTOR AND DEACONS), SOVEREIGN IN POLITY AND BONDED TOGETHER FOR WORK, WORSHIP, MUTUAL EDIFICATION, OBSERVANCE OF THE ORDINANCES (BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER), AND THE WORLD WIDE PROCLAMATION OF THE GOSPEL. WITH CHRIST AS ITS HEAD (MATTHEW 28:19-20; ACTS 2:41-42; I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 12; EPHESIANS 4:11-13).
