We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith alone (Ephesians 2:8-9). Salvation is the free gift we receive the moment we put our faith in Jesus Christ, believing that his death, burial and resurrection paid for all of our sins for all time. If we believe in our heart and confess with our mouth (Romans 10:9) we can receive the gift of salvation by calling upon the name of the Lord (Romans 10:13).
We believe that repentance, in the context of salvation, is turning from unbelief to belief (Mark 1:15). We do not believe that a person must repent of, or turn from, their sins to be saved. That said, God calls us, as His children, to live a holy, righteous life.
We believe in the eternal security of the believer (once saved, always saved), and just as there’s nothing we can do to earn salvation (Ephesians 2:8-9), there’s nothing we can do to lose it. (John 10:28)
We believe that Jesus was God manifest in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16), that the name Jesus (Luke 1:31) is the correct name in the English language (Greek: Ιησούς) and, therefore, reject the Sacred Name Movement that advocates replacing Jesus’ name with Yeshua or Yahshua.
We believe that the Godhead consists of the Father, the Word (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. (1 John 5:7)
We believe that the King James Bible is the perfect, preserved word of God in the English language and that all modern English translations are perversions of God’s word. We do not believe in “lost books” being rediscovered, since God promised to preserve his word for all generations (Psalms 12:6-7).
We believe in a literal six-day creation of both heaven and earth, and that God’s creation is a finished work (Genesis 2:1). We, therefore, reject both the big bang theory and the theory of evolution. We believe that the earth has a face (Genesis 4:14) — that is a flat surface. We believe that the earth is God’s footstool (Isaiah 66:1), resting upon pillars (1 Samuel 2:8) and is fixed and immovable (1 Chronicles 16:30 and Psalms 93:1). We believe that the sun and moon, lights created after the earth for times and seasons (Genesis 1:14-15), travel in a circuit above the earth (Psalms 19:4-6).
We believe that God wants everyone to be saved (2 Peter 3:9). We believe that faith comes by hearing God’s word (Romans 10:14-17) and that all believers, as children of God, are commanded by Jesus to spread the gospel (Matthew 28:19-20).
We believe in a post-tribulation, pre-wrath rapture. We do not believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, but that saved Christians will be on earth throughout the tribulation and great tribulation (Revelation 6:9-11), until Jesus returns to gather his elect, immediately before he pours out his wrath.
We believe that the saved are God’s elect (Galatians 3:29). And that “he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God”. (Romans 2:28-29)
Israel and Zionism
We do not believe that the modern State of Israel is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy, but the result of the will of man. More particularly, an outgrowth of the spirit of antichrist. That said, we wholeheartedly support the true spiritual Israel, composed of all true believers in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We reject all teachings of dispensationalism, which we believe to be a gross distortion of Scripture in support of the spirit of antichrist and, more specifically, the synagogue of Satan. (Revelation 2:9; 3:9)
We reject Calvinism on all five points.
