What do we believe?
Our beliefs are based on the Word of God - The Holy Bible.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God and as such is the foundation and guide for God's Church and His people. (2 Tim. 3:16)
Jesus said that man should live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. (Matt. 4:4)
The Bible is very clear that all mankind has fallen from the grace of God and that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to restore that broken relationship by faith in Him. (John 3:16 & Rom. 5:12-17)
Baptism should follow conversion as directed by Jesus. (Matt. 28:19)
All believers are commanded to share the Good News of Christ. (Acts 1:8 & 1 Cor. 9:22)
All believers will spend eternity with God in Heaven. (John 14:1-3)
We adhere to the Baptist Faith & Message (2000 update)
What do we think it takes for a person to go to heaven?
The Bible has the answer to this question. It's a matter of FAITH.
F is for FORGIVENESS. We cannot have eternal life without God's forgiveness.
"In Him [meaning Jesus] we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins." - Ephesians 1:7a.
A is for AVAILABLE. Forgiveness is available for all. "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16. But forgiveness is not automatic. "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 7:21a
I is for IMPOSSIBLE. It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven. God is love (John 3:16) and just. "For judgment is without mercy" - James 2:13a. Man is sinful. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." - Romans 3:23.
But how can a sinful person enter heaven, where God allows no sin?
T is for TURN. To turn means to repent. TURN from something - sin and self. "But unless you repent you will all likewise perish," Luke 13:3b. The Bible tells us that "Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" -
1 Corinthians 15:3b-4. "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." - Romans 10:9.
H is for HEAVEN. Heaven is eternal life.
Here. "I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly" - John 10:10b.
Hereafter. "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also" - John 14:3.
How can a person have God's forgiveness, heaven and eternal life, and Jesus as personal Savior and Lord?
F.A.I.T.H. = Forsaking All I Trust Him.
Would you like to receive this forgiveness by trusting in Christ as your
personal Savior and Lord?
Pray this Salvation Prayer and this will be your step of FAITH.
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and that You arose from the grave. I now ask you to forgive me of my sins and to save my soul. Amen.
