Inerrancy Of Scripture
We believe the Holy Bible
is the Word of God written; it is the revelation of the truths of
God conveyed by inspiration through His servants to us. As such, it
is infallible and without error. "all Scripture is
God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and
training in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16). The Bible is not the
changing word of human beings, but the unchanging Word of God (1
Thessalonians 2:13). .

Jesus was both human and divine.

Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through 'Salvation'
(Accepting Christ's offer
of forgiveness for sin). Salvation is deliverance from
spiritual death and enslavement by sin. God provides salvation for
all who believe and accept His free offer of forgiveness. Mankind's
only hope of redemption from the fallen sinful state is through the
blood of Jesus Christ, God's Son-blood that was shed as Jesus died
on the cross. [The account of the crucifixion of Jesus is recounted
by four of His contemporaries: Matthew (chapter 27), Mark (chapter
15), Luke (chapter 23), and John (chapter 19).] (Luke 24:47; John

declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong
process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer
to God and become more Christlike.
Church has a Mission to seek and to save all who are
lost in sin. We believe 'the Church' is the Body of
Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have
accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of religious
denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.
We believe it is the mission of the church to encourage, love
and help each other, especially newly saved Christians to "grow in
Healing of the Sick is a Privilege for Christians Today
"Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from
sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of
all believers (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16,17; James 5:14-16)."
The Blessed Hope-When Jesus Raptures His
Church Prior to His Return to Earth (the second
coming). All Christians who have died will one day have their
souls (which have been living in Heaven) reunited with their bodies,
rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air. Christians
who have not yet died will be raptured or caught up with them, to be
with forever the Lord. Then Christians of all ages will live with
God forever. The scriptural truth of the Lord's soon return is "the
blessed hope". (Romans 8:23; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1
Thessalonians 4:16-17; Titus 2:13)
The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins
His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. This millennial
reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the
establishment of universal peace.
Final Judgment Will Take Place for those who have
rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to
eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.
WE BELIEVE...and look
forward to the perfect
New Heavens and a New Earth
that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have
accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever
following His millennial reign on Earth. 'And so shall we forever be
with the Lord!'
