We Believe...

We believe that the King James Bible is the Word of God. Continued in the line of preservation of the Textus Receptus. We believe that it is complete and final revelation of the will of God to man, and the supreme, infallible authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

We believe in a Triune God (trinity) or the unity of the Godhead. There are three persons: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are equal in every divine perfection and execute distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.

We believe that all men by nature, choice and practice are sinners, but that "God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." We believe, therefore, that those who repent and by faith receive Christ as Lord and Saviour will rejoice forever in God's presence, and those who refuse to receive Christ, as Lord and Saviour will be forever separated from God in eternal torment. (A place called Hell).

We believe that the Church is always local and visible and is made up of all the Saved and scripturally baptized believers. It has been given two ordinances Baptism, and the Lord's Table. All others if saved and not scripturally baptized are members of the family of God.

We believe that spiritual gifts are given to the church for the express purpose of winning the lost and edifying other believers. The Holy Spirit is given to each believer upon acceptance of Christ and his purpose is to exalt and bring people to Christ, in other than self-gratifying ways. Speaking in tongues were the least important of these gifts and were given as a sign for unbelievers. Since the present day charismatic movement does not follow these scriptural principles and purposes, it therefore, cannot be of God or the Holy Spirit.

We believe that every human being is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith; that each church is independent and autonomous and must be free from any ecclesiastical or political authority; therefore, Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions with each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation of patronage of the other.
