  Mission Statement

    

STATEMENT OF FAITH 

The Bible – We believe in the verbal-plenary inspiration and preservation of the Holy Scriptures.  The King James Bible is God’s Word for the English-speaking people. 

The Trinity – We believe in one true God, eternally existing in three persons:  God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. 

The Lord Jesus Christ – We believe in Jesus Christ’s impeccable nature, His virgin birth, and His vicarious death and bodily resurrection.   

Salvation – A free and everlasting gift of God, entirely by grace and not by works of righteousness (Titus 3:5), no more of works (Romans 11:5-6) and not of works (Eph. 2:8-9). Every person is responsible to receive or reject salvation by the faith that is in the Lord Jesus Christ, that a soul once truly saved can never be lost. 

Second Coming – We believe in the personal, pre-tribulational return of our Lord for all of the Body of Christ and the personal pre-millennial return of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Church Ordinances – We believe the ordinances of the church are water baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper. 

Evangelism - We believe the responsibility of believers to evangelize the world and establish other local churches.  Although all can not physically go to the foreign field, all can be involved by prayer, finances, and encouragement.
