What We Believe

Much time has been spent reflecting on what to put here, making several attempts to write "things" down in a concise, straightforward, and understandable way. However, the Lord revealed the best way to express "what we believe" is through the preaching and teaching brought forth in our own services

With that in mind, begin with ...

There are two fundamental TRUTHS.

There is one true omnipotent GOD of the universe.

Revelation 1:8 "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty."

Isaiah 46:9-10 "Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:"


The BIBLE, specifically, the The King James Authorized Version, is the preserved, infallible Word of GOD for the English speaking people.

Lessons and Sermons

The God Preserved Word Of God

Deuteronomy 30:10-11 says, "... his commandments and His statutes which are written in this book of the law. For this commandment, ... it's not hidden from thee neither is it afar off." What is being taught in these verses is God's written word, as written by God, was available and accessible to the people. We have to ask a question. "Do these verses in Deuteronomy apply ONLY to the original manuscripts, or is God's word, as written by God, available and accessible to us today?" To simplify the question, "Do we have God's written word, as he wrote it today?" Click on the item listed in the "Beliefs Index" column to the right.

The Church Covenant

Having been led, as we believe by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior and, on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, in the presence of God, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.

We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.

We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings; faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale of, and use of, destructive drugs or intoxicating drinks as a beverage; to shun pornography; to be zealous in our efforts to advance the Kingdom of our Savior.

We further engage to watch over one another is brotherly love; to remember one another in prayer; to aid one another in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and Christian courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay.

We moreover engage that when we remove from this place we will as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.
