Beliefs I Believe... In the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Old and New Testaments. In the preservation of God’s Word through the Hebrew Masoretic Text and the Greek Textus Receptus. That the King James Version is the best English translation of the Bible. In one true God, manifest in three distinct yet equal persons of the Godhead: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. That God created the world in six, literal twenty-four hour days. That all mankind is sinful, in need of salvation, and is unable to save themselves. That Christ died for the sins of all mankind; and, that salvation is by grace, through faith alone, based upon the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross. In the bodily resurrection of Christ, and His bodily ascension into heaven where He now intercedes for believers. In the reality of heaven and hell. That man was created as a responsible being and as such, he has the freedom to choose to accept or resist the grace of God. In the eternal security of the believer. That the local church is God’s institution to carry out the Great Commission. That the two ordinances of the local church are Believer’s Baptism by immersion, and the memorial of the Lord’s Supper. In the pre-tribulational rapture of all believers. In the pre-millennial return and millennial reign of the Lord Jesus Christ. In the obligation of every believer to live a holy life and to witness to the lost of the saving power of Jesus Christ.
