OUR PURPOSE

WE ARE STRIVING TO BE THE SAME CHURCH AS DESCRIBED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

Jesus said in Matthew 16:18 "...upon this rock I will build MY church...". It is our desire to be a part of the church which Jesus built. It is our sincere desire then to be patterned after HIS church in origin and design and therefore nondenominational. We believe this to be possible to all who will learn, believe and be guided by the plain teaching of the Word of God. Jesus declared the Word of God to be the "seed of the kingdom". (Luke 8:11) A fundamental truth in nature is that a specific kind of seed, when planted, will always produce after its kind. For example, wheat will produce wheat and corn will produce corn. In like manner, the Word of God, when planted in the hearts of honest people, and obeyed, will produce a Christian, just as it did in the first century. Nothing more and nothing less.

THIS IS GOD'S "PLAN OF SALVATION" FOR YOU

YOU MUST HEAR THE TRUE WORD OF GOD

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17)

YOU MUST BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE TRUE SON OF GOD

"Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." (John 8:24)

YOU MUST REPENT OF YOUR SINS

Turn from your sins "Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead." (Acts 17:30-31)

YOU MUST CONFESS YOUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST

You must, with sincere heart-belief, confess that Jesus is Lord. He is Lord whether you confess it or not, but it is unto your salvation that you must acknowledge His deity and His ownership (Romans 10:9-10). This confession is the external expression of an internal spirit of complete submission to every aspect of His word and will. As with faith and repentance, confession alone does not save (Matthew 7:21).

YOU MUST BE BAPTIZED BY IMMERSION

Be baptized for the remission of sins "Then Peter said to them, 'Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.'" (Acts 2:38)

YOU MUST LIVE A FAITHFUL LIFE UNTO DEATH

Live a faithful Christian life in the fellowship of God’s people "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord." (1 Corinthians 15:58) "But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin." (1 John 1:7)
