We are a truly independent church, as were all the churches of the New Testament. We are not affiliated with any man-made external organization be it a Convention, Association, Fellowship or Mission Board. Our only Head is the Lord Jesus Christ, our authority is the Word of God and our only headquarters is in heaven. We fellowship with sister churches of like precious faith and practice, and support missionaries sent forth by the authority of such churches.
We affirm without apology the doctrines frequently identified as the “Fundamentals of the Faith,” which include the deity, virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, and imminent return of Jesus Christ. We reject, however, the prevalent concept that other doctrines clearly taught in God’s Word are “non-essentials.” Christ said:“Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt. 5:19)
We believe that Christians should bring forth the fruits of salvation in their lives and that their relationships with Christ should affect every aspect of their lives: the clothes they wear, the language they use, the activities they participate in, the places they frequent, and even the jobs they hold. Christians should seek to separate themselves from evil of every sort.
We believe that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Those who will believe upon Jesus Christ through repentance and faith are redeemed, quickened, and saved, not by themselves, nor through their own works, but only and wholly by the power of God. We believe that we are responsible to do our part in ensuring that the gospel is carried throughout the world. We are opposed to cheap or high pressure methods of evangelism, and to the preaching of easy-prayerism, which neglects the essential of Biblical repentance. We believe that it is impossible for one to accept Christ as Savior while rejecting Him as Lord.
We believe in the verbal plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures. We believe that God has preserved His very words in the transmission of His Word as found in the Greek Textus Receptus and the Hebrew Masoretic Text. We believe that the Bible as we have it today in the King James Version is the Word of God in the English language. It is the preserved, inspired Word of God. We use no other version of the Bible for teaching or preaching.
