About By the Grace of GOD
Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. (1 Timothy 5:17 - KJV)
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15 - KJV)
All scripture is given by inspiration from God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Timothy 3:16,17 - KJV)
Whoever believes and holds to Christ's Word, heaven stands open to him, hell is shut, the devil is imprisoned, sins are forgiven, and he is a child of eternal life. That is what this book teaches you - the Holy Scripture - and no other book on earth. - Martin Luther
Statement of Faith
I believe in GOD, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of GOD, the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen. - Apostles Creed
Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Sola Scriptura
(By Grace Alone, Through Faith Alone, From Scripture Alone)
† The Bible is the inspired Word of GOD, inerrant in the original documents, and of final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
† There is one GOD, the Creator of all things, infinitely holy and eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
† The Lord Jesus Christ is fully GOD and fully Man, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and sinlessly perfect. His sacrificial death on the cross is substitutionary and representative. He rose bodily from the dead and ascended to His Father’s right hand, where He now ministers as our Great High Priest. He will come again to receive His own unto Himself and to reign in power and glory for all eternity.
† Each member of the human race is fallen, sinful and lost, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of man. Redemption is wholly by the blood of Christ, and salvation is by grace alone through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
† The Holy Spirit indwells the believer, who is sealed until the day of redemption and empowered to live a godly life.
† The church began with the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and is composed of all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. These believers are united to Him and to one another by the indwelling Spirit. This means that the church, as a whole, is not an organization, but a living organism, known as the body of Christ.
† There are two Christian ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is a life-giving water, rich in grace, and a washing of the new birth in the Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial celebration, instituted by the Lord Himself exclusively for His own for the forgiveness of sins. In the observance of this supper, believers remember Him, they show His death until He comes, and they function as worshiping priests before GOD. Although baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church until the return of Christ, they are not to be regarded as means of salvation, which is by grace alone through faith.
† Every true child of GOD possesses eternal life and being justified, sanctified, and sealed with the Holy Spirit, is safe and secure for all eternity. However, a Christian can, through sin, lose his fellowship, joy, power, testimony, and reward, and incur the Father’s chastisement. Relationship is eternal, being established by new birth; fellowship, however, is dependent upon obedience.
† There will be a bodily resurrection of the saved and of the lost—of the saved, unto eternal life, and of the lost, unto eternal and conscious judgment.
