                                                   Statement of faith

The original Manuscripts were inspired of God without a flaw. They are the final authority in all matters of salvation and Christian living.

The Lord Jesus is God's eternal Son, without beginning and without end.

The Lord Jesus Christ experienced a miraculous conception and birth by way of the virgin Mary.

The Lord Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead and ascended to heaven.

All have sinned and stand guilty before a holy, righteous, sin hating GOD.

This is a divine necessity before man can enter God's heaven and is not dependent on man's moral living, keeping of the law or religious affiliation. It is based upon Christ's atoning death at Calvary which alone is sufficient to cleanse the vilest sinner who trusts in Him.

Once a person has accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, he possesses eternal life and is secure for all eternity.

The Lord Jesus will return from heaven to catch away all believers (those who have died, as well as those still alive).

There is a future resurrection of all, the saved to eternal glory and the lost to eternal conscious punishment in the lake of fire.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. II Timothy 3:16

All of the above doctrinal truths are substantiated from the Word of God. Further truths are found on these by reading the pages of this site.

                                    ADDENDUM  STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in the verbal  inspiration of the  Bible, both  the Old and New Testaments;

the Trinity of the Godhead; Creation of man by the direct  act of God; the Fall of man and his 

need for redemption;   the Deity, Incarnation  and  Virgin Birth  of  our Lord and  Savior 

Jesus Christ;  His vicarious  atonement   for  the  sins of  mankind  by  the shedding of His

blood on the Cross;  the resurrection of His body from

the tomb; His ascension into heaven; His personal imminent return; the Existence of the 

literal devil who is   our adversary; a literal  heaven for the redeemed and a literal hell for 

the  lost; the infallible rule    of  interpretation  of Scripture  to  be  Scripture  itself;  and 

the requirement  of implicit obedience to the    expressed command of Christ as the

standard by which he will judge our love to Him.

                                           The purpose of operating this page

Is the edification of Christians through presenting a forum of discussion and teaching,

fellowship in God's    Holy Word, the salvation of souls, the world-wide proclamation

of God's saving grace expressed in the    shed blood and finished work of the Lord Jesus 

on the cross, the promotion of Godly worship and the    gathering of saints in an assembly 

gathering, "Faith once delivered." until He comes.
