About Us Our Beliefs

What we believe and how to know you are on going to heaven

Bible is our sole authority in all matters of faith and practice. The following is a summary of what we believe according to the Bible:

  • We believe in the supernatural inspiration of the Bible. We believe The Old and New Testaments are the Word of God kept intact for us by way of God’s divine providence and work of preservation. The 66 Books of the Bible are together the complete, preserved, inerrant Word of God.

  • We believe there is one, and only one, living and true God; and that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons: the Father (Jehovah), the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection, who execute distinct, but harmonious offices.

  • We believe Jesus Christ, who was preexistent in the Godhead from eternity past, was made flesh and in a miraculous manner was born of a virgin. We believe that Jesus laid down his life in a vicarious death on the cross, for the atonement of man’s sins. He died, was buried, and by His power bodily rose from the dead three days later.

  • We believe that salvation is offered freely by Jesus Christ to all people without reservation. This salvation is only by grace through faith, and a personal repentance from sin must be present for true salvation to be possible. Once an individual has been saved, he has received eternal life, and can never lose it.

  • We believe in the pre-tribulational Rapture of all the redeemed. When the Tribulation Period culminates with the Battle of Armageddon, Jesus Christ will physically return to the earth and establish His Millennial Kingdom.

  • We believe the New Testament church is a local, visible, autonomous assembly of baptized believers. It is an institution which Jesus Christ established during His earthly ministry, prior to the events of Acts 2 and the Day of Pentecost. The true mission of the church is found in the Great Commission.

  • We believe the ordinance of baptism is the immersion in water of a believer. The authority to baptize lies in the local church, and identifies a believer with the doctrine of that church.

  • We believe that in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper, after solemn self-examination, and by the use of unleavened bread and the unfermented fruit of the vine, the members only of a given Baptist church are to commemorate together the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ.

More important then what we believe is having Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. When God moves you from information to transformation 

The Bible Way to Heaven

  • There are big questions that haunt all of us. What happens when I die? Where will I spend eternity? The single most important question that you will ever answer is this: "If I were to die today, would I spend eternity in Heaven with God?" Your relationship to Jesus Christ is central to the answer to that question.

The Bible tells us in I John 5:13, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life..." The simple truth is God wants you to know where you're going! So, here it is in a nutshell:

1—Recognize Your Condition Our sin creates an impassable chasm between us and eternal life with God.

  • My biggest mistake when I don't know my way is that I don't want to admit that I am lost! My wife calls this, "pride." In order to find the way to eternal life with God, I must admit I am lost in sin. Romans 5:12 teaches us that since Adam and Eve, the first man and woman on earth, a sin nature has been present in all people. Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Sin is any act contrary to God's laws and commandments, and those sins that I have committed separate me from God. Whenever I have been lost, I have paid some type of penalty. I have been late to a special event and, on occasion, I have received a speeding ticket. Sin also has a penalty. Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." The "wage" or payment for our sin is spiritual death, and eternal separation from God.

2—Religion and Good Works Are Not the Answer Religion and good works cannot bridge the gap created by our sin

  • Religions try to create their own ways to God. Their systems may seem logical, but they cannot bridge the gap created by our sin. Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” In other words, our thoughts and ways are not what matter. God’s Word, the Bible, provides true answers of grace and forgiveness. In Ephesians 2:8–9 the Bible says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

3—The Good News—Jesus Christ Provides the Way!mThrough His death on the cross, Jesus Christ paid for our sins and delivers to us the way to eternal life in Heaven.

  • Even though we were lost and separated from God, He loved us, and because He is love, God sent His Son to die on the Cross and raise from the dead three days later. John 3:16 explains “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, He became the payment for our sin. Now, we do not have to pay for our sin ourselves. By His grace, salvation is provided. In Romans 5:8, the Bible says, “But God commendeth [meaning proved or demonstrated] his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

4—Believe and Receive Christ We must place our full trust in Jesus Christ alone for forgiveness and eternal life.

  • In order to have a relationship with God and an eternal home in Heaven, we must stop trusting ourselves, our works, and our religions, and place our full trust in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of our sin and eternal life. In Roman 10:13 the Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” That is a promise directly from God that if you will pray to Him, confess that you are a sinner, ask Him to forgive your sins, and turn to Him alone to be your Saviour; He promises to save you and give you the free gift of eternal life. You can make that decision today by praying from your heart, something like this:

  • Dear God, I know that I am separated from you because of sin. I confess that in my sin, I cannot save myself. Right now, I turn to you alone to be my Saviour. I ask you to save me from the penalty of my sin, and I trust you to provide eternal life to me.—Amen

  • You'll never regret that decision! If you have just trusted Christ, we would love to know about your decision and give you a Bible and some other materials to help you learn more about that new relationship! Give us a call at (760) 362 4645 and let us know today!
