The Scriptures; I believe that God has delivered his word unto us in the form of a Book called the Bible. The Old and New Testaments are the final authority for the faith and practice of the people of God. God preserved His Word both eloquently and completely in the 1611 Authorized Version.
The Existence of GOD; The Bible reveals the person of GOD in His creation. Those created have but to look to themselves and the creation to see without doubt that the God of the Bible Lives and manifests His power over and in the affairs of all men.
The Lord Jesus Christ; I believe that God manifested Himself in the flesh in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ was born of a virgin, filled with the Holy Ghost, lived a perfect life, was seen of men who witnessed His death for our sins, his resurrection from the grave, ascension into Heaven and heard his promise to come again.
The Holy Spirit; As a part of the Godhead he is the person who fills and indwells the believer, was active in the creation of the world, is the author of the Bible, empowers the believer, holds back or restrains the wicked and teaches the believer the Word of God.
The Creation of Man; During ‘the creation week’ ( six literal days ) God spoke this world and all that is therein into existence. As part of the divine creation God created man in His image and the woman as mans help mate.
The Question Of Sin; Man named Adam and his wife Eve sinned against God by partaking of that which God had warned them not to. Through this voluntary act of disobedience the consequences of the curse of sin fell upon them and their posterity. Physical and Spiritual death fell upon all in that all sin by choice.
The Provision of Salvation; Man by nature sins or breaks the commandments of God willfully. God who is righteous and Holy requires a punishment for such acts of disobedience. The punishment is eternal separation from God in a place called Hell.
Only through the sacrifice of the personal death of His only begotten Son Jesus Christ could a payment or restitution be made for our sin. Now through being born again or being saved can we obtain the forgiveness of God and the gift of eternal life.
The Home; The first of all institutions established by God was the Family. Home would be more than a place it would be the foundation of society, established with the man as its head and the wife and children as its crown. Marriage would be the union by which a man and a woman would be united in a relationship recognized by God.
The Government; The second instruction established by God for the purpose of providing order, protection, and continuance for mankind. The laws, statues, and commands of government are meant to stability and peace to our country.
The Church; Local assemblies began meeting from the beginning of the New Testament Times with Jesus Christ as their head, The Bible as their authority, the gospel and the preaching of it around the world as their goal. Two ordnances were established to be carried out by the
A. Baptism, which is required of someone who has been born again, showing their obedience and is necessary for Church membership.
B. The Lords Table, called the Lord’s Supper in which the believer partakes of the bread and of the juice as a memorial to the death of Christ for our sins.
The ordnance is to be administered to and for the membership of the Local assembly.
The Last Days; Prophecy is set forth in the Scripture which speak of a coming day of reckoning. This involves The return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His Church, and then with His Church to establish a 1000 year reign of righteousness, a time of judgment on the nations, eternal judgment in ‘the lake of fire’ of Satan and all who follow him in rejecting The Lord Jesus Christ.
A New Heaven and a New Earth beyond the imagination of any living creature with eternal blessings for the saved of all ages will be created by God.
