What We Teach


The Bible
We believe the Bible is the Word of God and was supernaturally inspired as the Holy Ghost moved on
holy men of God who then spoke and penned it. (2 Peter 1:20-21). The Bible is the Word of God and our standard for faith and practice. The Bible is our sole authority for faith and practice in all things that we do in the church and outside of the church. (II Timothy 3:14-17)

The Gospel
The virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Isaiah 7:14, Hebrews 4:15, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

Eternity
Hell is real and is as eternal as heaven. (Luke 16:19-31)

The Security of the Believer
Believers are eternally preserved. (Psalms 37:28, John 10:27-30, I John 5:13)

The Return of Christ
The second coming of Christ is imminent. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18)

Creation
The world was created in six literal 24 hour days. (Exodus 20:9-11)

Translations
We believe the King James Version of the Word of God to be the preserved Word of God for the English speaking people. (II Tim. 3:16-17)

 

God’s Message to You

The Bible says there is only one way to Heaven!
Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” (John 14:6 )
Good works [that is good performance or behavior] cannot save you: “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.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Trust Jesus Christ today! Here is what you must do:

1  Admit you are a sinner.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)
“Wherefore, as by one man [Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12)
“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1:10)

2  Understand that the penalty for sin is eternity in hell.
“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” (Revelation 20:14)
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”  (Revelation 20:15)

3  Turn from your sin.
(Repent!) Jesus said: “Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:5)
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:” (Acts 17:30)

4  Believe that Jesus Christ died to pay for your sin, was buried and rose from the dead. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
“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.” (Romans 10:9)

5  Through prayer, invite Jesus to be your Saviour today!
“For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:10)
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
