Mission Ministries


We believe the Scriptures to be the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith, practice, and rule of life (II Timothy 3:16,17).

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, John 10:30, John 4:24).

We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35); His shed blood for atonement (Ephesians 1:7, Colossians 1:14); His bodily resurrection (John 11:25); His ascension (Acts 1:11); His advocacy (I Timothy 2:5, I John 2:1); and His personal, soon return to earth to consummate His kingdom (John 14:3, Revelation 11:15).

We believe that God the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, regenerates the sinner, secures, assures, indwells, teaches and enables the believer to live a Godly life (John 16:8, John 3:5, Ephesians 4:30, I John 3:19, I Corinthians 6:19, John 14:26, Romans 8:26,27, Galatians 5:16, Romans 8:14).

We believe that all men are sinners by nature (Psalm 51:5); by choice (Isaiah 53:6); and by practice (Romans 3:23); depraved and lost, making it necessary to born again (Isaiah 1:4-6, John 3:3, Romans 3:9-20, Ephesians 2:3).

We believe that men are justified on the grounds of repentance and faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ (Mark 1:15, Acts 13:39); apart from good works (Ephesians 2:8,9).

We believe in the eternal hope of the believer (John 10:28,29) with a continued relationship to God (Romans 8:38-39, Colossians 1:27, John 5:24).

We believe that Christ?s church is constituted of all true believers and is organized into local, visible congregations (with which we identify) for the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 18:20, (Acts 2:41-42, Hebrews 10:25, Matthew 28:19,20).

We believe that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24; Romans 7:2; I Corinthians 7:10; Ephesians 5:22-23).

We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:24; 19:5, 13; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; I Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; I Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4).

We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto a resurrection of life, and the lost unto a resurrection of damnation (Daniel 12:2, John 5:28-29).

We believe all shall stand before the judgment seat of Christ in Heaven where the righteous will receive reward and will dwell forever with the Lord (II Corinthians 5:10). We believe that Hell is a place of conscious eternal punishment of all unsaved (Matthew 25:26, Revelation 20:7-10, I Corinthians 10:13).

We believe that Satan is a person whose purpose is to deceive the unsaved, to tempt and mislead the saved, who will finally be overthrown by Christ, and cast into hell (Genesis 3:13-14, I Peter 5:8, Hebrews 2:14, Romans 16:20, I John 3:8, Matthew 25:41, Revelation 20:7-10, I Corinthians 10:13).

We believe the Lord?s Day, the first day of the week, to be a Christian institution of regular observance, to commemorate the resurrection of Christ from the dead, to exercise worship and spiritual devotion both public and private (Matthew 12:1-12; 28:1, Mark 16:1-7, I Corinthians 16:1-2, Exodus 20:8-11, Revelation 1:10).
