WHAT WE BELIEVE
A Christ Centered Church
A person, Jesus Christ, not a program, is the foremost. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” (Acts 16:31)
A Bible Believing Church
We stand for the historic fundamentals of Biblical Christianity. We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament to be the verbally inspired word of God, the final authority for faith and life.
An Independent Church
As a self-governing church we have no synod, conference, presbytery or other form of human organization that exercises control over the local congregation.
An Evangelistic Church
We maintain a steadily expanding program of missions, seeking to bring all to the Savior.
A Fellowshipping Church
Christian love, harmony, and unity are found in all our activities.
GOD’S CLEAR PLAN FOR SALVATION
We all have sinned…
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory (perfect standard) of God.”
The penalty for sin is death…
Romans 6:23 “For the wages (payment) of sin is death (Hell).
Jesus Christ died for our sins…
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth (proved) His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Believing that Christ’s death paid for our sin debt, we have eternal life (Heaven)…
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast.”
What We Believe…
Verbal Inspiration of the Bible, Trinity of the Godhead, Judgment, Genesis Account of Creation, Original Sin, The Virgin Birth, The Blood Atonement, The New Birth, Justification by Faith, Local Church Government, Believers Baptism by Immersion, Commemorative Lord’s Supper, Security of the Believer, Resurrection of the Body, Pre-Millenial Return of Christ, Millennial Reign of Christ, Hell-Eternal Torment, Heaven-Eternal Glory, Personality of Satan
1. We are all sinners.
Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
God’s standard is perfection, and none of us can measure up to a perfect standard.
2. There is a consequence for sin.
Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death…” Sin comes with a big price tag – and the payment for that price tag is death. Because of our sin, we are separated from God.
3. We are enslaved to sin.
Our world is full of addictions, New Year resolutions, and self-help books all because we are in bondage to sin! All sin must be removed in order to meet God’s standard of perfection, but we struggle and often fail to remove just one sin!
4. The good news – Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sins.
2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “He (God) has made Him (Christ) Who knew no sin, to be made sin for us. So that we can be made the righteousness (perfection) of God in Him”!
5. His payment is offered as a free gift to all!
Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “for by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the GIFT of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast”. How do you receive a gift? You must take the giver of the gift at his word!Receive the gift of His payment by believing Him, and receive the gift of His righteousness (perfection) by believing Him!
