Let His Truth Reign
We believe the Word of God from Genesis to Revelation, literally from the King James bible. The Word of God is the final word God has given us. We do not hold the traditions of men, only the pure Word of God and what the bible teaches us. Please scroll down on page, to see what we believe. Thanks!
2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts (strong desires) shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; v.4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
2 John 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth (remains) not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth (remains) in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
This is what Jesus said about the commandments.
Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
We are secure, as long as we love Jesus and the Word of God; and DO what the word says.
Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING.
13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
Yes, God worketh in us, and by his grace we will do what his word says. But remember, we are not robots and we do have a free will. We can either obey God's word, or be rebellious and continue in our sin. It's up to us to choose.
Even the truly "born again" believer, can pluck himself/herself out of God's hands, by walking away from the Lord and not repenting or returning to him. That's why God's word says this: 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
We need to ABIDE / REMAIN faithful to Jesus and his word TO THE END. Or else we will end up on the WIDE WAY that leads to destruction. We MUST abide / remain in the vine.
Romans 11:22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

STATEMENT OF FAITH:
We believe the Bible to be inspired, the only infallible Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
This is right on the dot also. All these things are necessary, in order to enter the Kingdom of God.
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
