We believe and teach that "All scripture is
given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for
correction, for instruction in righteousness," 2 Timothy 3:16. Therefore the Word of
God is our only authority. We believe God has preserved his word for
English-speaking people in the
Authorized King James Bible.
We believe the Holy Bible teaches that reconciliation between God and man is through
faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
This constitutes salvation. This
reconciliation is accomplished through the sinless blood of Jesus Christ and is clearly twofold. From God's side:
He "…was in Christ,
reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto
However, reconciliation is not complete until man's rebellion
is broken, and he is reconciled from his side.
"Now then we are ambassadors
for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead,
be ye reconciled to God," (2 Corinthians 5:19-20).
The triune God is sovereign and omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent.
There are not three God's but "there are three that bear record in heaven,
the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."- 1 John
5:7 The Bible teaches there is a Godhead: Col. 2:9, Romans 1:20, Acts.
Jesus Christ is God; His birth was to a virgin;
He lived a sinless life, His death was vicarious, and He was physically resurrected
from the dead.
The Lord Jesus Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven
presently and will return to judge the world and establish His everlasting

power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth," Romans 1:16. is the only hope for mankind.
is by the grace of God through faith on the basis of the atoning sacrifice of
Christ, and that nothing man can do can earn or deserve salvation. We believe
the Bible clearly teaches that the true Christian who stands in the
true grace of God (1
Peter 5:12) will depart from iniquity,
walk in newness of life, walk in the Spirit, and follow the teachings of
God through the Holy Bible. Also see:
God's Plan of Salvation
We decry the falling-away-from-the-faith
teaching that obeying the Lord Jesus Christ, (walking
in the Spirit) is the same thing as working for one's salvation.
You may not hold the free gift of eternal life while living
in rebellion to the one who gave his life for you.
God commands all people everywhere to repent and to believe
The true church is made up of of repentant and believing
people—who are now
called saints—who confess and serve Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and
submit to his rule and authority as taught in the Holy Bible.
Satan and his devils are the spiritual enemies of the
Christian. The Christian must actively submit to God and resist the devil.
There is a literal
Heaven for the redeemed
and a literal Hell for the lost.
Scripture in context—not study bibles, concordances,
interlinears, seminary textbooks or Bible college textbooks—is
the source of Christian doctrine.
The Lord Jesus Christ
and the Apostle Paul both taught that the "abomination of desolation" (also
known as the "man of sin") will stand in the holy place (so that he as
God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing that he is God) before the Lord Jesus
Christ returns for his saints.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not
come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed,
the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called
God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
shewing himself that he is God. 2 Thess. 2:3-4
The Lord Jesus Christ told his
disciples when he would return:
after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon
shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers
of the heavens shall be shaken" And then shall appear the sign of the Son
of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they
shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great
glory." -Matthew 24:29, 30
The Lord Jesus Christ will return for his
saints immediately after the "tribulation of those days." It is at this time that the Lord Jesus
Christ (who cannot lie) stated that he would would return to
gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other:
And he shall send his angels with a great
sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the
four winds, from
one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:31
Some saints will be preserved by God's
mighty power during the tribulation. Those who are alive and remain will meet
the Lord in the air and so shall ever be with the Lord:
Then we which are
alive and remain shall be caught up
together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1

Pre-Tribulation Rapture doctrine as conceived by
John Darby to nevertheless investigate this website—which contains a variety
