Our Church Beliefs
The Scriptures are our only rule of faith and practice, the only authoritative guide for the church. (2 Tim. 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:20)
The church of the new testament should be restored to its original 1st century form. As an independent Christian church we are 2,000,000 strong, not being governed by any outside denominational structure, praying for the unity of the church under the headship of Christ. (John 17:20-21; Ephesians 4:3-6)
Salvation comes through all of the following:
Comes by the grace of God through the blood of Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5:9)
Comes through faith in Christ as Lord and Savior. (John 3:16; Mark 16:16; 2 Corinthians 5:7)
Comes through repentance from sin. (Acts 2:38; Acts 17:30-31)
Comes through an open confession of Christ. (Mathew 10:32; Romans 10:9-10)
Comes through baptism, by immersion, into Christ. (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-6)
That the weekly participation in the Lord’s Supper is one means of deepening our spiritual life as we focus upon the cross of Christ. (Acts 2:42; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
That the local church and our world-wide mission program be supported by offerings given by cheerful, loving Christians. (2 Corinthians 9:7; 1 Corinthians 16:1-2)
In the ministry of all believers to build up the church for Christian service to the saved and to the lost. (Ephesians 4:11-13)
