Who we are

We are an Independent, Fundamental, Pre-Millenial, KJV Baptist Church

I. The Bible
We believe that the Bible (the King James Version) is the complete revelation from God and its contents are verbally inspired. Holy men of God, qualified by the leadership of the Holy Spirit, wrote in obedience to the divine command, and were kept from all error, so that the Bible can actually be classified as the very Word of God, and the books of the Bible are of divine origin and authority. As the result of believing this, we also believe what the Bible teaches about doctrine, history, prophecy, and stewardship. We believe the plenary or full inspiration of the Word of God and it is our source of faith and practice. It is the final authority in all spiritual matters.

II. God
We believe that God is supreme in His person, eternal in His being, absolute in His attributes, glorious in His perfection, and sovereign in His will. God is clearly distinguished from things which have no life, He is a person. God is the creator of man and the universe and upholds all things by the word of His power. We believe also, in the Trinity. The father is the fullness of the Godhead invisible, the Son is the fullness of the God manifested, and the Spirit is the fullness of the Godhead in His executive agency. God in His person possesses Omniscience, Omnipotence, Omnipresence, and Immutability.

III. Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh, eternal in His existence, creative in His might, and life-giving in His power. Born of a virgin, sinless in His life, vicarious in His death, powerful in His resurrection, and glorious in His coming. Divine worship is ascribed to Him and divine attributes are possessed by Him. We believe that He is now exercising His high priestly work and He is soon coming. We believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the church and the pre-millennial coming of Christ.

IV. The Holy Spirit
We believe that Christians receive the Holy Spirit at salvation and He is their constant source of strength and power. The Holy Spirit possesses the attributes and deity of God, so He is God. We believe the Holy Spirit convicts and regenerates the sinner to salvation; He also indwells the believer as the means of assurance, power, wisdom; He guides the believer in his life and anoints him for service. We believe that the Holy Spirit possesses the characteristic of personality, so He is a person. The Bible refers to Him as a person and not merely an influence.

V. The Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in the image of God and by his own choice and willful decision fell into sin. By this act, he became a sinner and was put under the condemnation of God. He was severed from life of God and became spiritually dead. Man is now totally depraved and does not possess any qualities whereby he might reconcile himself to God or save himself.

VI. Salvation of Sinners
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace. The lost person does not possess any means of saving himself. God has provided a way through the death of Christ to save sinners. He is saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Man is quickened by the new birth to a position of justification before God which consists of the forgiveness of sins and the removal of its guilt and punishment. Through this he is reconciled to God and made a new creature in Christ Jesus.

VII. The Freeness of Salvation
We believe that the blessings of salvation are made free to sinners by the gospel. We believe that the Bible teaches a who-so-ever will salvation and nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner but the voluntary rejection of the gospel.

VIII. The Security of the Believers
We believe that those who believe and receive Jesus Christ as Savior are eternally secure. We are now in possession of eternal life and shall never be in danger of condemnation or the loss of our salvation. This assurance rests on the finished work of Christ which places us as a son of God in our relationship.

IX. The Doctrine of the Church
We believe that the visible church is a congregation of baptized believers, practicing New Testament principles, believing its doctrines, observing its ordinances, and exercising its autonomy. We believe that it is the responsibility of the local church to propagate the gospel to the world. Every church and Christian should have a part in this ministry.

X. Heaven and Hell
We believe that every person is a soul of eternal duration. Therefore, heaven is a place of eternal happiness for those who are saved by the grace of God. It is a place of God's preparation for His people. Those who refuse God's grace and remain in their lost condition are punished in an eternal hell forever.

XI. Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality
We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen. 1:26-27.) Rejection of one's biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person. We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. Because God has ordained marriage and defined it as the covenant relationship between a man, a woman, and Himself, we will only recognize marriages between a biological man and a biological woman. Further, the pastor and preachers shall only participate in weddings and solemnize marriages between one man and one woman. Finally, the facilities and property of our church shall only host weddings between one man and one woman.

XII. Sanctity of Human Life
We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all of its dimensions, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (Ps. 139)
