What We Believe.

Our Church's Doctrines

 

salvation

We believe that the first salvation is by grace, through faith, and not of works. This means that the first salvation cannot be earned by any work (church attendance, baptism, keeping the commandments, etc..). The first salvation is through putting your faith on Jesus Christ, and that he died, was buried, and rose from the grave to pay for your sin. This gets you into heaven, and onto the new earth in the future.  However, we believe that the second salvation is being saved from the lake of fire and God’s wrath, which also allows you to enter the kingdom of God. The second salvation you must earn through keeping the commandments. Earning the second salvation makes you a saint, also known as the elect or being “in Christ”.

1st) Romans 10:9 - "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."

1st) Ephesians 2:8-9 - "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."

2nd) Philippians 2:12 - “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”

2nd) 2 Peter 1:10 - “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:“


Jesus christ is god

We believe that Jesus the Christ is God in the flesh, and was begotten of the Holy Ghost by the Virgin Mary. We also believe that Mary did not remain a virgin, but had other children. 

1 Timothy 3:16 - "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

Mathew 1:18 - "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Mark 6:3 - "Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him."


rejected teachings

We reject the teaching of Calvinism and believe that God desires for everyone to be saved. We do not believe in dispensationalism or differing gospel teachings. We reject and stand against the Charismatic Ecumenical movement of our day. 

1 Timothy 2:4 - "Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth."

2 John 1:10 - "If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:"


Trinity

We believe in the triune nature of our one God being three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. All three persons of the trinity are equally God. We reject the teachings "Oneness" & "Modalism" that state that Jesus Christ manifests himself in different modes when he wants to be the Father or when he wants to be the Holy Spirit, this is not taught in scripture. 

1 John 5:7 - "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."

John 1:1 - "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

Matthew 3:16-17 - "And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

 


Eternal security

We believe in the eternal security of the believer. Once you have been saved, you are always saved. There is nothing you can do to lose your first salvation, just as there was nothing you could do to earn it. However, we believe that if you do not keep God’s commandments, you will not earn the second salvation. Which means that you will not be allowed into the kingdom of Heaven, which is a separate city on the new earth for the saints and God.

1st) Revelation 21:1&24 - “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.”

2nd) Revelation 22:14 - “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”


independent fundamental local church

We believe in the autonomy of the local church. We are completely independent of all denominations, conventions, and movements. We have Jesus Christ and the Word of God as the head of our church. We are not governed by any pope, prophet, president, board of directors, or public figure. We believe in the local church, and reject the teaching of a "universal church."

Ephesians 5:23 - "For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body."


unsaved: eternal fire
Saved but Unrighteous: temporary fire

We believe that the unsaved will spend eternity being tormented in a literal hell when they die, and will eventually be thrown in the Lake of Fire. We also believe that those who are saved but do not keep the commandments of God will have a temporary part in the lake of fire. 

Matthew 10:28 - "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

Revelation 20:15 - "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."

Revelation 21:8 - "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."


Post-tribulation, pre-wrath

We believe that the "rapture" (being caught up in the clouds) will happen after the great tribulation, and before God pours out his wrath upon earth. We believe only the elect (saints, those “in Christ”) will be raptured. 

Matthew 24:29-31 - "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."

2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 - "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;"

Revelation 20:6 - "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years."

Matthew 24:4 - "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you."


King james bible only

We believe that the King James Bible is the Word of God, and we believe that God himself inspired and preserved it. There will be no other bible versions used in our church. 

2 Peter 1:21 - "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."

Psalm 12:6-7 - "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." 

Isaiah 59:21 - "As fore me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever."


church membership

We believe that church membership is a privilege and not a right. Church members are subject to be removed from membership and not allowed to attend services if they violate the qualifications of church membership as seen in the Holy Scriptures. 

1 Corinthians 5:13 - "But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person."


Holy separate life

We believe that believers in Christ should live a holy and separated life, not conformed to this world. We are against abortion, homosexuality, and gender neutrality. We believe that God has created government to punish evil doers, Christians should never take that into their own hands. We believe everything and anything found and proved in the King James Bible. 

Romans 12:2 - "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

1 Peter 1:16 - "Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy."

2 Corinthians 6:14 - "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" 

Jeremiah 1:5 - "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations."

Leviticus 18:22 - Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.

Romans 13:4 - "For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil."
