Statement of Faith

1.SCRIPTURES:  2Timothy 3:16, 17 tells us that “ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY INSPIRATION OF GOD, AND IS PROFITABLE FOR DOCTRINE, REPROOF, FOR CORRECTION, FOR INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.: THAT THE MAN OF GOD MAY BE PERFECT. THROUGHLY FURNISHED UNTO ALL GODD WORKS.”  We believe that the Bible is the infallible, inerrant word of God.

2.SALVATION:  We believe in salvation only through the grace of God.  Ephesians 2:8&9 says: “FOR BY GRACE ARE YEA SAVE THROUGH FAITH: AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES.  IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD: NOT OF WORKS, LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST.” Acts 16:31 tells us how a person can be saved “AND THEY SAID BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED, AND THY HOUSE.” Romans 10:13 tells us who can be saved “FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.”

3.HELL  We believe there is a place called Hell just as there is a place called Heaven.  Jesus described Hell as a place of total darkness, where men weep and gnash their teeth.  He also said it is a place where the worm dieth not, meaning our soul continues to live separated from God.  In Luke 16:19-31 Jesus tell us about a rich man who went to hell where there is no second chance.

4.WHO WOULD GO THERE?:  The Bible says:  “HE WHO HATH THE SON HATH LIFE, HE WHO HATH NOT THE SON IS CONDEMNED ALREADY.”  Anyone who does not believe in Jesus will go to hell.

5.WHAT THINK YE OF JESUS?: He is my Savior and the only name under Heaven by which man can be saved.  He is the way, the truth, and the life and no man comes unto the father except by Him.
