We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God, providentially preserved in the English Authorized King James Version, and as such, is "the holy scriptures" and thereby "given by inspiration of God."
Proverb 30:5; Psalm 12:6,7; II Timothy 3:15 - 17
We believe in two scriptural uses of the word "church" (the spiritual body of Christ, consisting of all believers, and each local assembly of believers). We believe that all people who have been born again are a part of "the church, which is his body," and therefore should join an autonomous local church. Furthermore, we believe the Biblical church to be an Independent Bible believing (KJV) Baptist Church separate from religio-political bosses. We believe in two church ordinances: Water baptism and the Lord's Supper, and two offices: Pastor and Deacon.
I Corinthians 1:16, 11:23 - 27, 12:13; Ephesians 1:22 - 23; I Timothy 3:1 - 13
God's Plan of Salvation
We are Baptist in doctrine, and traditional in views of music and worship. We subscribe to a moderate dispensationalism, and are anti-Calvinistic in theology. We are against the lies of higher and lower criticism of the word of God. We also believe in a practical, Biblical Christianity: prayer, personal work, giving, ministering to the saints, and a daily walk with Jesus Christ.
We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His vicarious atonement, His bodily resurrection, and His second coming.
John 1:1; Isaiah 7:14; I John 2:1 - 2
We believe salvation is "by grace through faith" in the finished work of Jesus Christ, and "not by works of righteousness which we have done." Furthermore, we adhere to the Bible position and Baptist adherence that the believer's soul is eternally secure after salvation.
Ephesians 2:8 - 9; Titus 3:5; John 5:24
You are a sinner
Romans 3:10 "As it is written there is none righteous no not one."
Romans 3:23 "ALL HAVE SINNED and come short of the glory of God."
There is a price on sin
Romans 6:23 "For the WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Jesus paid the price for your sin
Romans 5:28 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, CHRIST DIED FOR US."
Heaven is a gift God wants to give you
Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord."
You must personally receive Jesus Christ as your Savior
Romans 10:13 "For WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED."
Simply pray like this:
Dear Lord, I realize that I am a lost sinner. Please forgive my sins. I now by faith alone receive you, Jesus, as my personal Savior. Thank you, Lord, for saving me as you promised. Amen!
