Our Statement of Faith
We believe in one God inclusive of
three distinctive persons, namely, the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost.
We justify that belief by faith
(which is understood by the believer) and fact, which is understood by the
The faith part needs no description
as once you have it, you will indeed know it.
Our statement of God is to the
unbeliever and the fact is the entire universe screams out in praise for a
The way we are provided for with
agriculture and animals for meat and clothing as well as the ever constant
supply of water which Solomon declared came down (rain) went into the rivers,
evaporated and went back up, only to repeat itself.
Such provision, along with night and
day, had to be prepared by a greater power.
We have the Bible
There are many false
books with partial truths and many lies such as the esv, the niv, the nasb and
on and on. That is because Satan wants to try to destroy the valid written
evidence for God but He has failed. The King James Bible is the valid
scriptures descended by God’s Spiritual influence from the first writings. It
is without error.
It is the most accurate, historical
book in the world.
2,500 prophecies appear in the pages
of the Bible, about 2,000 of which already have been fulfilled to the letter.
There is no book on the face of the
earth like it.
The Bible was written over a period
of roughly 2,000 years by 40 different authors from three continents, who wrote
in three different languages.
It is actually 66 books in one.
Written by over 40 authors through the centuries from different places yet,
each book is a cohesive piece of the whole.
When we go to history, there is no
better historical proof, than the Bible.
We have Jesus
Jesus, the second person of the
trinity. Described in the very first line of the Bible. Gen. 1:1 In the
beginning, Elohim created the heavens and the earth.
Elohim is a Hebrew word depicting
more than duo.
Jesus is further explained in every
portion of the Bible that declares “The Angel of The Lord”
He was in the burning bush. He met
Abraham on the way to Sodom. He was with the Father and Spirit as they went to
confound the languages at Babel. He stopped Abraham from sacrificing Isaac and
there are many more appearances of Him in the Bible.
He is explained in John 1:1
Joh 1:1 In the
beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Later, it describes who that word was:
Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among
us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.
Jesus, continued to be
described/announced by John the Baptist and later by all His disciples but
being anyone can have friends testify for them the greater proof is the
testimony of His enemies:
Joh_5:18 “Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill
him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his
Father, making himself equal with God. “
Php 2:6 “Who, being in the form of God, thought it
not robbery to be equal with God”
He had many prophecies of His coming declaring Him as “Emmanuel” (God
with us) and I could go on but time and space do not allow.
We have the Holy Spirit
Who, by the way,
created the world with the Father (Gen 1:1) the son (Joh 1:3 (“All things
were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”) and Gen 1:2 (“And
the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was
upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the
The Holy Spirit
convinces us of sin, He convicts He testifies to Christ. He dwells inside the
believer. He enters upon salvation. We are sealed with Him (not by but with) as
He is our actual seal of salvation. He is with us in the world and when He is
taken away prior to the Tribulation, we will go with Him based on the fact that
He will not “unseal” us. He is called the “Earnest” which means the security
deposit for Christ as He will come to redeem us in the future.
That is just a
nutshell of an enormous amount of evidence that proclaims the God of the Bible.
For those who believe differently, I would simply ask, In what have you based your
beliefs? In your own mind? In someone else’s mind? Both are subject to fail.
The above shows many proofs and there are so many more if you choose to examine
29:13 “And ye
shall seek me, and find me, when ye
shall search for me with all your heart.”
Jer 29:14 “And I will be found of you, saith the LORD:
and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the
nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and
I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away
God promises that if
you sincerely seek Him, you will find Him and He will deliver you from sin and
give you eternal life.
We have the Church
The Church is not a building but comes from the Greek word, “Ekklesia”
meaning “The called out ones”
Simply speaking it means that God has called us unto Him and we should
respond. The Bible tells us all about the Church but to put it in a short
statement, the Church gathers to:
Worship God, seek His
will corporately, Praise Him as He is deserving. It is also where when we come
together we teach and preach the word to instruct us in the scriptures. We
build each other up in love and if there is true need, we will meet that need.
We must - Heb 10:25 “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves
together, as the manner of some is; but
exhorting one another: and so much the
more, as ye see the day approaching.”
Our instruction comes
from the meetings we have and we should not miss them as we will also miss the
instruction. Our growth depends on our participation in prayer, study and the
coming together of the saints.
We believe in the Church
as a living spiritual body by which Christ is the Head and of which all
regenerated people are members. We believe that the local Church is a company
of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for
worship, work and fellowship. We believe that the visible churches are
committed, for observance "till He comes" the ordinances of baptism
and the Lord's supper; and that God has laid upon those the task of persuading
a lost world to accept Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him Lord and Master. We
believe human betterment and social improvement are essential products of the
We believe that every
human being is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith.
We believe that each
church is independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any
ecclesiastical or political authority, that therefore, Church and State must be
kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free
from the dictates or patronage's of others.
We have Salvation
Salvation is the most important. What will we be saved from? The fire
of Hell. We could explain Hell for hours but let it suffice to say it is a
place of eternal torment.
What does Salvation get for us? A place in eternal bliss with our Lord
and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Why do we need a Saviour?
Well, if you recall the story of Adam and Eve, you will remember that
God told them that all in the Garden was theirs except the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil. That when they ate from that they would die.
They did and in that day they died spiritually and was ejected from
the Garden of Eden. They also died physically in the day of the Lord which was
1000 years. What does that have to do with us you might ask? We were with Adam
in his dna when he sinned and when he was evicted. The Bible says in Adam, all
have sinned and so salvation is being reunited with God after accepting the
fact that Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sin. The sin was disobedience
and all subsequent sin was a result of our being sinners.
The process of salvation is when we realize we are damned, we repent
and ask for forgiveness and if it was a real decision for Christ, you are
It is at that point (one Baptism) that the Holy Spirit enters in and
seals you forever.
We have Baptism
Baptism is really two fold. When
you are saved the Holy Spirit Baptizes (immerses) us with His presence. However,
after that we have been commanded by our Lord (Matthew 3:15–17; Acts 2:38). To undergo a full immersion in
water (Baptism) This is actually an outward sign of your new, inward belief. It
is a proclamation of the transformation which caused you to be in Christ.
our statement (You can always contact us for more) we believe:
In eternal Security-Once
saved always saved
is for the saved but all who will learn without distraction may attend services
agree that not all sins are the same (i.e. adultery vs. lying) we do attest
that separation from God is what keeps us from Him not individual sin but
because we are sinners.
one man-one woman
acceptable only by Biblical exceptions
A spouse may
leave the partner in the case of severe abuse… but that does not entitle them
to a divorce
the case for independent leadership of each Church. We believe that although
other Churches may practice something, it does not necessarily make that
practice Biblical but only discretionary to the particular Pastor.
although many do, we do not believe woman wearing pants is evil or against
scripture. Pants are not gender oriented however in the case of a man wearing a
dress, we do disagree.
things from a clear conscience towards God.
