What I Believe

  • I Believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God. 2 Timothy 3:16.
  • I Believe the Godhead is God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Matthew 28:18, 19.
  • I Believe salvation comes through our Lord Jesus Christ.  John 3:16; Acts 4:12.
  • I Believe the personal, visible return of Jesus is near. John 14:1-5; Matthew 24; Acts 1:11.
  • I Believe we are saved by faith, not by our works.  Ephesians 2:8-10.
  • I Believe good works are the fruit of true faith.  James 2:17-20.
  • I Believe through the Holy Spirit, we receive regeneration, the new birth, Bible conversion, true sanctification, and holiness of life. John 3:1-7; Acts 3:19.
  • I Believe now is judgment time when a special message calls all back to Biblical truth.  Revelation 14:6-12.
  • I Believe the Ten Commandments will be the standard of the judgment.  Exodus 20:1-17; Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14; James 2:10-12; Revelation 22:14.
  • I Believe the original seventh-day Sabbath (Saturday) is the true Lord’s day of the entire Bible.  Genesis 2:1-3; Exodus 20:8-11; Isaiah 66:22, 23; Luke 23:52-24:1.
  • I Believe the followers of Jesus Christ will shun worldly pleasures and follies that unfit His true followers for Heaven, our eternal homes.  2 Timothy 3:1-5; 1 John 2:15-17.
  • I Believe the Christian is called into the holiness of life and as such Christians will be discreet in conduct and modest in dress and appearance.  Isaiah 3:16-24; 1 Timothy 2:8-10.
  • I Believe the body is the temple of the Holy Ghost; thus we should not defile it with alcoholic beverages, tobacco in any form, narcotics, or foods that are not in harmony with God’s Word.  1 Corinthians 9:24-27; 6:19.
  • I Believe the dead sleep in the grave until the Resurrection. Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6, 10; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.
  • I Believe the Holy Spirit grants gifts and these gifts are used to build up and fortify the church as well as bless the world through these gifts.  1 Corinthians 12; Ephesians 4:8, 11; Revelation 19:10.
  • I Believe Baptism is by immersion.  Mark 1:9, 10; Romans 6:3-5; Matthew 3:16.
  • I Believe Christians support the gospel through tithes and offerings. Leviticus 27:30; Malachi 3:7-12; Matthew 23:23.
  • I Believe that “God is a Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and truth,” John 4:24.  And “if anyone is a true worshiper of God and does His will, He hears Him,” John 9:31.  I believe worshipping God is the most important thing we will do in our lives.  As true worshipers, we can pray to God and He promises to hear and answer our call.  God is a promise keeper, so I believe in the power of prayer!
  • I Believe Jesus when He said, “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive”, Matthew 21:22, Matthew 11:24, John 14:13, 1 John 3:22; and “if two of you agree on earth concerning anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in My name, I am there in the midst of them”, Matthew 18:19-20. I believe in these promises and the power available to us when praying together with other people. The promise of His presence is more than enough for me, so join me in praying for others.
