Some salient points as to “What We Believe”

 

  1. We Believe all Scripture is God Breathed.
    1. The Word of God is Living, Powerful and Active
    2. The Word of God is Pure, Solid Truth

  1. We Believe Salvation is being Saved or rescued from the penalty of sin.
    1. Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin, and, in that sense, all men are lost, and except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.

(Acts 2:38,  Acts 19:5,  Acts 22:16,  Romans 6:1-11,  Colossians 2:11)

 

  1. We Believe in The Lord’s Supper or Communion
    1. This is a permanent ordinance that we celebrate in the Church, and is to be observed "till he come" again.
    2. To commemorate the death of Christ: "This do in remembrance of me."
    3. To signify, seal, and apply to believers all the benefits of the new covenant.
