Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs

Our Church believes strongly in the Holy Bible and serving The Lord Jesus Christ.  The following is just a summary of some of our Church's beliefs.  We invite you to visit and attend one of our services so you can fellowship with our members and spend time with our Pastor.  We know that once you've visited, you will have found a home to worship.  We have added a Bible search feature at the bottom of this page to help you find scripture and learn more about The Lord.


God's Standard of Salvation
We sincerely and earnestly contend for God's standard of salvation.  In the Word of God we can find nothing short of a Holy Ghost filled life with signs following as on the day of Pentecost. Mark 16:16-17; Acts 2:4-8; 14-17; 9:17-18; 10:44-48; 19;1-6.  Also Romans 12:1-2; Hebrews 12:14; Matthew 5:48; I Peter 1:15-16.

 


Repentance and Remission of Sins 
The only grounds upon which God will accept a sinner is Repentance from the heart for the sins which he has committed.  A broken and a contrite heart, he will not despise.  Psalms 51:17.  John preached repentance, Jesus proclaimed it, and before his ascension commanded that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name, beginning at Jerusalem.  Luke 24:47.  Peter fulfilled this command on the day of Pentecost-  see Acts 2:38

 


Marriage and Divorce
Whosoever putteth away his wife and marrieth another, committeth adultery, and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.  Luke 16:18; Romans 7:1-3; Mark 10:11-12.  We hold that we have no right to add any thought of our own to such a plain statement, in order to justify those who have taken their second companion while the first liveth.

 


Women Preachers
We believe that it is Not the will of the Lord for women to preach.  Paul stated in I Timothy 2:12-14; "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.  For Adam was first formed, then Eve.  And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression."  Also, in I Corinthians 14:34-35 we find these words: "Let your women keep silence in the churches:  for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.... And if they will learn anything, let them ask their husbands at home:  for it is a shame for women to speak in the church."  Also see Isaiah 3:12 [As for] my people, children [are] their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause [thee] to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
