beliefs word cloud

• We believe in the verbal plenary (full) inspiration and authority of the Bible both Old and New Testaments. We hold the Bible to be infallible and inerrant and, therefore, to be our only rule of faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:15-17; II Peter 1:19-2) We further believe that God has preserved His Word pure and without error.

• We accept the Authorized Version as the Word of God for English-speaking people. We hold that the underlying text of our beloved King James Version, the Textus Receptus, should be the foundation for all translations into native languages. (Isaiah 59:21; Ps. 119:89)

• We believe in one God, eternally existing in the three Persons of the Trinity: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost.

• We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is the only begotten, virgin-born Son of God; yea, God manifest in the flesh. We believe in His substitutionary death for every man, His bodily resurrection and ascension, and His mediatory work for us at the right hand of the Father.

• We believe the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son. We believe He indwells all believers and reproves the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He regenerates, seals, and empowers believers in Christ.

• We believe salvation is by grace and through faith, completely apart from any good work of an individual or religious group. We believe salvation is received by repentance toward God and faith in the work and Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe the new birth is an act of God, which we receive instantaneously upon our repentance and faith. We believe that once a person is saved, he will never perish.

• We believe in the premillennial, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in a pre-tribulational catching away of the Church to meet Christ in the air.

• We believe that believers should be separated from the world and its philosophies, methods, practices, and trends. We believe all believers should be separated unto God as a clean vessel.

• We believe that God works through local churches, which should be completely autonomous, independent of religious hierarchies and organizations, and indigenous to a specific locality.

• We believe that the Church is responsible for the souls of all men on earth, to send missionaries and take the Gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth, that they may be saved.

• We reject all doctrines that are contrary to the Word of God: namely, Calvinism, Hyper-Calvinism, Ecumenism, and the Charismatic movement with its signs, wonders, and tongues practices.
