What I know to be true

1. GOD

I believe that there is one true and living God. He is eternal and has manifested Himself in three distinct and divine Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. These three Persons are equal in every divine perfection and they execute distinct and harmonious offices in the work of redemption.
(Gen. 1:26; Isaiah 45:21-22; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; 14:10, 26; 15:26; I John 5:7)


I believe that The Lord Jesus Christ, eternal with The Father, was begotten of The Holy Ghost, born of Mary, a virgin, and is both The Son of God and God The Son. He is both true man and true God; one person with two natures; tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin.

(Isaiah 7:14; Matt. 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-35; John 1:1, 2, 14; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 4:14-15)


I believe that The Holy Spirit convicts of sin, converts the repentant sinner and places him into Christ, seals the believer, interprets The Scripture, and endues God's children with power to be a bold witness.
(John 3:5-6, 16:8-11; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:10-14, 12:13; Ephesians 1:13-14)


I believe that The Holy Bible was divinely inspired by God and given to man as the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man. By the "Holy Bible", we mean that collection of 66 books (Genesis to Revelation) of the Old and New Testaments, which we believe is the very Word of God. Inspiration without preservation would be meaningless, and the original manuscripts are no longer in existence, therefore we believe that God has supernaturally preserved His Word, without error, for us today in the AV 1611 (King James Version) of The Bible. We believe that this preserved Bible is the final authority for us in all matters of faith, practice, and doctrine. We also believe that Christians should not only believe The Book, but also practice what It commands and teaches.
(Psalm 12:6-7; II Timothy 3:15-17; James 1:22-25; II Peter 1:21)


I believe that a New Testament church is a congregation of baptized believers that associate together by a covenant of faith that is based solely upon The Word of God. The offices of ordination are pastors and deacons, and the Biblical ordinances are water baptism and The Lord's Supper. We believe in the autonomy of the local church which means it is to be free from any external authority or control. We believe that the mission of The Church is to be a witness to a lost world of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. It is the function of the local church to preach the gospel and baptize new believers but its primary function is to instruct and teach the saints with The Word of God in order that they might be a proper witness to the world.
(Matthew 18:15-20, 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-21, 6:1-7; I Corinthians 11:20-34; I Timothy 3:1-13; II Timothy 2:2)


I believe in the Biblical doctrine of Separation.
  1. The separation of the individual believer from all worldly practices that may dishonor The Lord Jesus Christ.
  2. The separation of church and state.
(Romans 12:1-2; II Corinthians 6:14 - 7:1; II Thessalonians 3:6, 14-15; I John 2:15-17; II John 9-11; Jude 3)

The Roman Road to Salvation
Romans 3:10 - As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 5:8 - But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.
Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus
Christ our Lord.
Romans 10:9-10 - That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in
thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto
Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
