STATEMENT OF DOCTRINAL BELIEFS AND GOVERNING BY-LAWS
We believe in the absolute authority of the Holy Scriptures. We believe the
original manuscripts were given by inspiration of God and were without error. We
believe the God who gave His word to man has taken upon Himself the
responsibility for its preservation. We believe the incorruptible word of God which
cannot pass away is available to the English-speaking world in the Authorized
(King James) Version. This Bible is our final authority in all matters.
We believe in one God eternally existent as the Father, the Word, and the Holy
We believe God to be the creator and sustainer of all things, visible and invisible.
We believe the universe and all that is therein to be held together by the word of
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ to be God manifest in the flesh, virgin born,
without sin, crucified, risen and coming again to receive His church, then
returning to establish His kingdom.
We believe salvation is available to all men by grace through faith in the finished
work of the Lord Jesus Christ, apart from human works or merit of any kind.
We believe the saved child of God is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ,
and is sealed, taught and comforted by the Holy Spirit until the day of
We believe salvation makes one a member of the body of Christ and the
members of this body should gather together in a local church where they may
minister one to another.
We believe it is the responsibility of every believer to proclaim the saving gospel
to all men by personal testimony and by giving of their means to finance the
ministry and missionary efforts of the church.
We believe all men rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ will spend eternity in the
conscious torment of a literal lake of fire, while those receiving the Lord Jesus
Christ will spend eternity in the glorious presence of God.
We believe all saved men should be separate from the outward and inner ways
of this world, being holy in mind and in body. We believe, however, that
righteousness does not come by keeping of laws and commandments but by an
inner change of heart. We therefore place emphasis on the inner condition,
trusting the outward appearance to follow accordingly.
We believe that water baptism is a public testimony made by the saved Christian
and plays no part in salvation or making one a member of the church.
We believe that any attempt by the state to interfere with the working of the
church or by the church to interfere with the working of the state is a violation of
God’s purpose for both.
We believe in the priesthood of all believers and decry any fashion of exalting
one member of the body of Christ, or one gift of the Spirit above another.
We believe that the church is a body of which Jesus is the head. Thus it is not a
democracy to be run by the will of its members but is to conduct its temporal as
well as its spiritual business in strict accordance to the word of God.
The above list of Doctrinal beliefs has also been adopted as the governing By-
Laws of this local assembly of believers. All officers and leaders of this church
shall meet the requirements set forth in the Authorized King James Bible.
