WHAT WE BELIEVE
We gather as Christians, simply to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ alone, and have no denominational affiliation (1 Cor. 1:9-10).
We are known as “brethren,” a name which the Lord Himself uses for us (Lk. 8:21, Heb. 2:11-12).
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16) in which He has revealed Himself to His creatures (Heb. 4:12-13).
We believe that all need a Savior, and that the Bible presents the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who made perfect atonement for our sins on Calvary’s cross (Rom. 3:23, Acts 13:38-39, 1 Jn. 5:12-13). Further, we believe that all who accept the Gospel are “born again” (1 Pet. 1:23), sealed with the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:13), and members of the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:12-13).
We believe in the Lord’s coming for His bride, the Church, which may occurs at any moment (1 Th. 4:13-18, Eph. 5:25-27). In view of this blessed hope (Ti. 2:13), we further believe that the greatest need in the world today is a return to the Word of God through which alone can come spiritual awakening (Heb. 4:12).
We preach Christ crucified for our sins, raised for our justification and coming again to rapture His Church (1 Cor. 15:3, Rom. 4:25, 1 Th. 4:13-17).
“Then those who gladly received His word were baptized … And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers … And the Lord added to the Church daily those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:42-43, 47 NKJV)
