WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in one God, who is Most High above all and the Creator of the heavens, the earth, and all that is in them.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Messiah as prophesied in the writings of the Old Testament, and that He is God manifest in the flesh (John 1:14, 1 Timothy 3:16). We believe that the Father sent His Son into the world, according to the Scriptures, to die for the sins of men on the Cross at Calvary. We believe that God raised-up Christ from the dead, so that whosoever believes in Him receives the forgiveness of sins, and is an inheritor of life eternal, according to the promises of God in the Scriptures.
We believe in God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, and that these three are one.
We believe that the Bible (in its original written form) is the inspired and inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16), and is the only meter by which men may discern the truth about God, and His righteousness, to know the way to Heaven. We believe the Holy Scriptures alone are the measuring rod that men must use to know both the promises of God, and the warnings He has given to mankind. While God may speak to us through “ten thousand teachers,” He compels us to search the Scriptures and test all that we hear according to His Word (Isaiah 8:20).
We believe in the literal Second Coming of Jesus Christ into the world to Judge the living and the dead.
We believe that salvation in the New Testament is promised to those who believe unto the saving of their souls (Hebrews 10:39) through the rebirth of the Holy Spirit (John 1:13, 3:5, Romans 8:9); that men are not saved by good works, but rather, through becoming a new creature in Jesus Christ, according to the Gospel of God.
We believe that the souls of unbelievers are condemned by the Law of God because of sin, and that all men have no hope of Heaven, unless they turn and obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ, according to the Scriptures.
We believe that the “gods” of other world religions are not representations of the True God, but are demonic powers and principalities that make up the kingdom of darkness, the kingdom of the Devil. We believe that Satan uses both evil, along with the knowledge of good to seduce the souls of men and bring them to destruction. In this way, Satan transforms himself into an Angel of Light, and is manifest in other beliefs that promote the principles of goodness, apart from faith in Christ. We believe this is a false light that only shines the way to hell for those who are deceived by it.
We believe that God commands that all men everywhere repent, not only of sin, but of every false way, turning from every false god, toward the only true God by faith in His glorious Son, Jesus Christ. We believe that there is salvation in no other, for there is no other name under heaven, given among men, whereby we must be saved, than the Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God (Acts 4:12).
We believe that true Christians are recognized by their faith in Christ alone, and that Christianity is not really a religion, but a relationship with Jesus Himself. This point is especially important when studying our position on the Founding Fathers of America. Many of those men commended Christianity in general terms, but rejected Jesus as the Son of God. Some of the founders even desired to re-define what it means to be a Christian, applying the name to anyone who promotes humanity, freedom or general goodness toward others. This corruption continues in our country today, and is growing. We believe this is the fulfillment of prophetic warnings of the last days, that men would have a “form of godliness” but would deny the power thereof (2 Timothy 3:5). We are commanded to turn away from such men, not join with them for the sake of promoting “conservative values.”
We believe that without faith in Jesus Christ, there are none good, and none righteous in the sight of heaven (Matthew 19:17, Romans 3:10). We believe that a failure to defend the Gospel has caused many churches to compromise the message of salvation, in order to justify unbelieving men (past and present) who appear to be “good people” in the eyes of the world. We believe this is a grievous error that leaves the souls of men dead in their sins, and strengthens the hands of wickedness and falsehood, by promising eternal life to those who are damned, and who will not be saved, unless they repent.
We believe that God is love and that He has no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but He desires that wicked men turn from their evil ways and live (Ezekiel 33:11-12). Our Lord Jesus compels us saying: “Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you.” (Luke 11:9) We believe these are words of encouragement to all men that would seek to know the truth. Our hope is that our humble ministry will be a blessing to others, and provide answers to those who hear, believe, and desire to do the will of God.
