What We Believe

We are a Bible-Believing, Bible-Teaching, Bible-Preaching, Bible-Practicing, Missionary Baptist Church.  We believe that everybody is somebody and that JESUS CHRIST is LORD.

This is what we believe in our church:

THE MEANING OF THE CHURCH:

(Matthew 16:13-18)

C  – Christ is the head of the church

H –  Holy Spirit is the administrator of the church

U  – Unity is the power of the church

R  –  Redemption is the message of the church

C  –  Compassion is the effect of the church

H – Heaven is the home of the church

The church is not a building of brick and mortar, nor is it an organization.  The Bible reveals the church in a threefold manner:

  • The Church is a Body – 1 Cor. 12:12-27
  • The Church is a Building – Ephesians 2:21-22
  • The Church is a Bride – Revelation 19:6-8

(2 Corinthians 5:17)

THE MEMBERSHIP OF THE CHURCH:

We do not believe you can be saved by Water Baptism, by Joining a Church, by Living a Better Life, or by Taking the Church Sacraments. The only way to be saved: “Ye must be born again!”

Church Members should:

(1) Be a Converted People – Matthew 18:3

(2) Be a Continual People – Acts 2:42-47

(3) Be a Cooperative People – I Cor. 3:6-10

THE MANAGEMENT OF THE CHURCH

(I Thessalonians 5: 12-13)

God has placed the Pastor of the church as God’s under shepherd and the deacons and other officers as his helpers to take care of God’s Church. These leaders need three things from every member to have the kind of church God teaches us in His Word, that we are to have.

(l) Our Time – 2 Corinthians 8:5-7

(2) Our Tithes – 1 Corinthians 16: 1-2

(3) Our Talents- Ephesians 4: 11-13

THE MESSAGE OF THE CHURCH

(1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

We learn from this scripture that the death, burial, and the resurrection of Jesus is the gospel that brings salvation.

Salvation is the Message of the Church.

(I) The Need of Salvation – Ephesians 2: 1-10

(2) The Nature of Salvation – John 3: 16

(3) The Neglect of Salvation – Hebrews 2:3

THE MINISTRY OF THE CHURCH

(Mark 16:15)

(I) A Family 
                   – To Love

(2) A School 
                  – To Learn

(3) A Hospital 
                – To Live

(4) An Army                     – To Liberate

(5) A Band of Workers      – To Labor

To fulfill the ministry of the church, there are three things we must do:

  • Esteem the Work of the Savior –

Hebrews 1: 1-4

  • Edify the Walk of the Saints – Acts 4: 32-35
  • Evangelize the Word to the Sinful –

Matthew 28: 18-20
