What We Believe

image9

That the Bible is the verbally inspired, infallible authority on all matters of faith and practice. We believe that the King James Version is the most accurate English translation of the preserved Old Testament (Masoretic) and New Testament (Textus Receptus) texts. That the Bible reveals everything we need to know about God, man, salvation, and God's past, present, and future plans for the world He created. That God is one God manifested in three distinct persons: God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Thus, the Lord Jesus Christ is fully God, as well as the Holy Spirit, who indwells believers. That a person is justified and saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. That "whosoever will" may be saved, and that nothing can be added to faith in Christ's finished redemptive work to obtain salvation. That the church is a local, visible body of saved, Biblically baptized believers whose primary task is to glorify God by fulfilling the great commission, which entails: evangelizing, baptizing, and teaching. The church's two offices are pastor and deacon. Her two ordinances are baptism and communion. We do not adhere to the tongues movement. The imminent end of the church age will occur with the pre-tribulation rapture. The Lord Jesus Christ will end the seven year tribulation period, which begins after the rapture, when He returns with His saints to install His earthly millennial rule.
