Beliefs

We Believe & Teach that there is one true and living God and His name is JESUS:

... maker of all creation, the all-knowing, all-powerful, everywhere-present, eternal Father; the source of all goodness, truth, and love; who has manifested himself in His Son, the Christ, for the purpose of redemption and as the Holy Ghost for the purpose of intervening in the lives of people. (Deuteronomy 6:4, 2 Corinthians 13:14, 1 Timothy 1:17; 3:16; 6:13-16) Furthermore, we believe that the fullness of the Godhead dwelt in Christ bodily, and that three bare record in heaven but these three are ONE, and that the NAME OF JESUS is exalted above every name!!! (Colossians 2:9; I John 5:7; Philippians 2:9-12)

We Believe & Teach the divine inspiration of the Scriptures:

.. and that the original manuscripts of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are the Word of God given through people, and that the Scriptures we possess today are the sufficient rule of faith, and practice and the final authority for truth and salvation. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

We Believe & Teach the full gospel of Jesus Christ:

.. which declares Him to be the only begotten Son of God, who was born of a virgin and who lived to show us the words and works of God.  As the Savior, He was crucified and died on the cross in our place to be the supreme sacrifice for sin.  He was buried in a tomb but rose again the third day, as the Scriptures foretold, and is now exalted as King of kings and Lord of lords.  As God manisfested in the flesh, He is true God and true man; in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. (Acts 10:38-40; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Colossians 2:9) 

We Believe & Teach the original apostolic plan of salvation:

.. proclaimed on the Day of Pentecost on the birth-day of the New Testament church AND through out the entire book of Acts, which includes faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, sincere repentance (asking God for forgiveness and inwardly turning away from sin), water baptism by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with the joyous experience of speaking supernaturally in other tongues (as the initial evidence or sign...followed by additional fruits) just as the believers did in the first century. (Hebrews 11:6; James 2:17; Acts 2:1-39, 8:12-20, 10:40-48, 19:1-7; John 3:1-5; Mark 16:16)

We Believe & Teach that the believer should live a life of holiness, modesty and separation:

.. both inwardly and outwardly, as a result of the working of God's grace in us, for the Word of the Lord declares that all who name the name of Christ should depart from sin and separate themselves from the evil practices of this present age. Furthermore, we understand that people are at different places in thier understanding, depth and experiences in God's kingdom.  When God gets control of your spirit, heart and mind then the other growth of that touches every aspect of your life. Including apprearance, words, associations, actions and conversations. (Ephesians 4:21-24; 2 Timothy 2:19; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 6:19-20; II Corinthians 7:1)

We Believe & Teach that the believer should practice genuine Christianity:

.. through love for God and people, prayer, obedience to the Word of God, heartfelt worship and expressive praise, sharing our faith, committment to marriage companions and families, availability to help one another in time of need, honesty and diligence in our employment, honor and respect for our government as it submits to the divine plan for human society, and the dedication of our time, talent, and treasure to advance the kingdom of God on earth. (Romans 12-12; Colossians 3-4)

We Believe & Teach in power and importance of the local and universal church:

.. established by our Lord as a unique and special fellowship for all who believe.  It is the spiritual community ordained for worship, stewardship, and service to God and people, of which every believer must become a part, for it is the body of Christ in the world today, displaying the same miraculous power and spiritual gifts experienced by the early church. (1 Corinthians 12; Ephesians 4:4-16)

We Believe & Teach in the return of Jesus Christ:

.. that glorious appearing when our Lord shall come with the sound of a trumpet, when both those who have died in Christ and those who now live in Christ will rise to meet Him in th air to be with Him forever. (1 Corinthians 15:51-55; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

We Believe & Teach that the great God will alone judge all people:

.. when the wicked shall receive their punishment and the righteous shall receive their reward.  We believe in the ultimate triumph of righteousness and in the life everlasting. (Romans 14:10-12; 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10; Revelation 20:12-21:8)

 

In conclusion, we teach these doctrines & lessons on a regular basis in our services and allow for questions. Additionally, we give out copies of most all lessons and ENCOURAGE that the people go home and study thier bible to verify that we are teaching it correctly. I invite you to visit our "Info Center" on our website to get copies of some of my lesson on the above subjects.
