The following is our Statement of Faith," or, it is what we believe from our understanding of the present truth we have
from the Word of God:
  • That the Scriptures are the inspired Word of God and the product of holy men of God who spoke and wrote as they were inspired by the Holy Spirit. That the Bible is the Infallible and Inerrant Word of God that is to be studied and rightly divided.

  • That the Godhead is a Triune God: One God manifested in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and that they work together for a common purpose as a community of One.

  • That Man is a created being by the hands of God, his Creator, made in the image and likeness of God. But he fell from his place of innocence and dominion through sin and have the need of redemption through the blood and sacrifice of Jesus Christ his Redeemer. Man is born a sinner, and his greatest need is a Savior and salvation. Salvation is a free gift from God to man, not of works or good deeds, but through faith in and the acceptance of Jesus Christ into his heart and life, the One who made atonement for the sins of man.

  • That Eternal Life is the result of the New Birth experience, or Being Born Again or from above. That every person who believes that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and receives Him as their personal Savior and Lord has Eternal Life as a possession now.

  • That every person who believes in and receives Jesus Christ should follow His example of Water Baptism. We believe that Water Baptism is a command given to those who believe and publicly show our pledge of loyalty to identify with, obey and follow Jesus. That Water Baptism is an ordinance of the Church, along with Communion ("the Lord's Supper"), and it is a symbol of the Christian's identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection, as the believer begins to walk now in the newness of life.

  • That Worship and Prayer should become a way of life for those who believe.

  • That Discipleship is the key to gaining the necessary knowledge we need in the Word of God that liberates us when practiced in our daily life. It is also the key to spiritual growth and maturity in Christ.

  • That Death is a reality and imminent ("unless Jesus Christ return and those alive meet Him as well as those who have die in the Lord in the air"). For it is appointed unto all men once to die according to the teachings of the Scriptures. Then after death, THE JUDGMENT!

  • That there will be a Resurrection from death and the grave for those who believe in Jesus Christ; and they will stand at The Judgment Seat of Christ to see if they qualify for rewards, if their works pass the test of the fire. But there will also be a Resurrection for those who died without Christ in their life, and that they will stand before The Great White Throne Judgment of God; and then be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the Devil, the Beast, and the False Prophet will already be, because their names were not found in the Book of Life. This is called The Second Death.

  • That every true believer should find themselves in a Local Assembly, Church, Fellowship, or Family or Household of God as the planting of the Lord in that particular Community. We should live in harmony, love, peace, and covenant relationship within that Community as a Family, as we go forth in the world fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ representing Him as His Kingdom Ambassadors; and re-presenting Him to the world as the Jewish Messiah and Savior of the world.
