Statement Of Faith

(1) All scripture is divinely inspired by God (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21). All scripture is perfectly preserved by God (Matthew 24:35). These Scriptures are found in the Textus Receptus and the King James Version.

(2) One God eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (I John 5:7; I Peter 1:2; Matthew 3:16,17).

(3) Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary (Matthew 1:18); He is true God and true man (John 1:1,14).

(4) Man was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26); man sinned, and thereby incurred both a physical death and an eventual spiritual death, which is a lake of fire and brimstone (Romans 6:23; Revelation 21:8); all men are born with a sinful nature (Romans 5:12,19). This state of man can be changed only through the salvation that comes by faith in Jesus Christ (Galatians 2:20; II Corinthians 5:7).

(5) Jesus Christ died for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood (Romans 5:1,8,9).

(6) The crucified body of our Lord was resurrected from the dead (Matthew 28:6; I Corinthians 15:3,4); He ascended into Heaven and is our Intercessor (Acts 1:9; I John 2:1).

(7) The personal, pre-tribulation, and pre-millennial return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for His redeemed (the rapture) is imminent (I Thessalonians 4:16,17; John 14:3); and He will eventually return to earth, with His saints, to establish His millennial kingdom (Revelation 19:11-16; Revelation 20:1-6).

(8) All who trust Jesus Christ to save them from God’s wrath are born again of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, and become the children of God (John 3:16; Titus 3:5; I Peter 1:23-24; John 1:12).

(9) All believers are baptized by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ, and are set apart to serve Him (I Corinthians 12:12,13; Romans 12:1; Ephesians 2:10).

(10) All true believers, having been born again into the family of God, are professors of everlasting life, shall never perish, and are eternally secure in Him (John 10:28,29; Philippians 1:6; I John 5:12).

(11) The bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost are certain (John 5:28,29; II Corinthians 5:1; Revelation 20:11-15).

(12) Scriptural baptism is commanded, is by immersion, is for believers only, and is to be done in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19; Acts 8:36,37).

(13) The Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the broken body and shed blood of Jesus’ death, and is to be practiced periodically until He returns (I Corinthians 11:23-26; Luke 22:17-20).

(14) As the children of the Lord, we should endeavor, by the Holy Spirit of God, to abide in Christ, to win the lost to Christ, to live a consistent Christian life, and to refrain from worldliness (John 15:1-14; Matthew 28:19,20; Romans 12:1,2).

(15) Because we believe that God’s inspired Word is perfectly preserved in the Textus Receptus, and that the King James Version is the English translation of this perfect text, the King James Version is the singular English reference for all Scriptures used by this church.
