Statement of Faith:

1 Peter 1:3-5
3 Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in Heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Hebrews 11:1-3,6
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him:] for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

1 Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

Romans 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Ephesians 2:8-9
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

James 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

1 Corinthians 16:13 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.

Revelation 2:10b … be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Statement of Doctrine: A summary of some things which are most surely believed among us. Many of us Christians are united in our stance that the Holy Bible is the authority, yet we disagree regarding some points of meaning. Here lists our view on topics of common interest.

Our Lord Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth, and The Life and no one can come to the Father but by Him. Jesus is God in the flesh, born of the virgin Mary with no human father, fully human and fully divine.

The Holy Godhead is eternally existent and triune; one God, three Persons: Yahweh, God the Holy Father; Jesus Christ, God the Holy Son; and the Comforter, God the Holy Spirit, who indwells all New Testament believers.

Our Lord Jesus Christ: died on the cross and suffered, taking the punishment for the sin of all humanity; was buried; rose bodily from the dead, conquering death for us; was seen resurrected by many infallible proofs and witnesses; ascended to Heaven; is currently seated at the right hand of God the Father; and shall return, in manifest glory, to this Earth as Judge of the living and the dead.

The 66 books of the Holy Bible are inerrant. God has preserved His Word without error as proclaimed by the Holy Spirit through the prophets by inspiration. The miracles recorded in the Scriptures are real, historical, super-natural events, rather than fiction or myth.

About 4,000 years before Christ was born, God created the world, from nothing, in six days that were consecutive, regular, 24-hour days, rested the seventh day, and has been working ever since.

Eden of primal Earth was paradise, without sin, suffering, or thorns, where no one would have died. By God’s standard, the world was very good. Adam’s rebellion against the throne of God brought a curse on the creation and that paradise was lost. Each man and woman has also gone astray, rebelling against the law of God, proving that we too are sinners, like Adam. God has also made a new paradise, where sin and suffering do not exist, and you can go there. This life is your place to choose.

Hell is a literal place of eternal judgement and torment created by God for the devil and his angels. All men and women, who die rejecting God’s mercy, will be condemned to hell without hope of deliverance. God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked, and is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. This life is your place to choose.

Human life is sacred from conception to eternity. Human beings are created in the image of God and are to be honoured, regardless of one’s perceived value, or quality, of that life. God and His Word have exclusive authority regarding when it is just for mankind to take a human life.

Marriage is an institution of God. He designed marriage for one man and one woman to become one flesh from the wedding until death parts them.

Government is an institution of God. “The most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.” Daniel 4:17

The Church is an institution of God. As high priest, Jesus is the Head of the Body of Christ, and every believer is a member.

The global flood, of Noah’s day, destroyed the Earth. All land creatures on Earth died, in whose nostrils was the breath of life, except those saved on the ark.

Baptism is of believers; in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; as a testimony of faith; by immersion in water; following the example and instruction of Our Lord.
