1. I believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons --- God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit.
 
2. I believe God created everything out of nothing for His own purpose.
 
3. I believe the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are inerrant and verbally inspired of God.
 
4. I believe there are no new covenant prophets as the Church has no further need for new revelations from God. The scriptures  
    are the complete revelation from God to the Body of Christ.
 
5. I believe Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is both God and man.
 
6. I believe man was created in the image of God in a state of innocence, but when he sinned, the human race incurred both  
    physical and spiritual death.
 
7. I believe Jesus Christ lived a sinless and perfect life that fully pleased His Father; that He died for our sins on the cross,
    bearing the judgment required by God's justice against sin.
 
8. I believe Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead; and that He ascended to the right hand of the Father.
 
9. I believe those who believe in Jesus Christ are saved by grace through continual faith conjoined with receptive submission
    to the plan of salvation as stipulated by God (repentance, confession, baptism by water immersion). I reject the "Once Saved
    Always Saved" doctrine, as Christians are required to endure to the end (Matthew 24:12-13; 1 John 5:13; Revelation2:10).
 
10. I believe we should observe the Lord's Supper as means of testimony for the Church.
 
11. I believe Christians should be good stewards over their finances; and give discretely, cheerfully, and willingly according to
     their means rather than by a man-made tithing system.
 
12. I believe men should lead in the home and church; and thus, women are restricted from occupying the pastoral position.
 
13. I believe at death, the righteous pass instantly into Christ's presence; to remain there until the resurrection of the Body of
     Christ's return for the Church. I also believe at death, the unrighteous pass instantly into Hell, where they are to remain until
     they are brought before Christ during the final judgment and cast into the Lake of Fire for eternity.
 
14. I believe in the bodily resurrection of the righteous dead during Christ's return for the Church; when the souls and spirits of
     those who have died will be united again with their bodies; now immortal. I also believe true Christians who are alive during
     that time, their bodies will likewise be transformed into immortality, and will be caught up together with them to meet Jesus
     Christ.

"Fraudulent leaders in our churches seem to be as comfortable with their deceptive schemes as magicians are with their trickery.

Mesmerizing their audience with smooth talk and charismatic charm, they confidently prey upon their unsuspecting victims' lack of biblical literacy and misplaced loyalty.

Such is a disheartening state of affairs. Of course false teachers desire to be let alone. To convey correction is a great transgression against God.

Some fume threatening speech: 'Touch not the Lord's anointed' or 'Judge not'. Clearly, thieves love darkness and hate to be counter-targeted by the flaming light of truth.

Bless the forthright watchmen who possess the courage and exegetical fortitude to sound the horn on serpentine ministers who have inconspicuously slithered into the Church.

We must address the serious issue of how long those who seek God's Truth will walk in brotherhood with those who have deviated from Truth.

Division is often met with reprimand in the name of love and tolerance. Appeasement to political correctness rather than an adherence to biblical correctness is the dominate order of our day.

Godly love and truth causes division ... separating the narrow path of Truth from the wide road of error and ungodly concession.

Today, it is incumbent that believers proceed with caution so that they do not give support and sanction those who have betrayed the Lord.

Regrettably, many naive people wink at doctrinal transgressions so long as it is perpetrated by a captivating, kind, and loving 'man of God'.

Ministers of darkness cloaked as angels of light are conveniently undiscerned. Let true believers judge righteously and take heed to the words of Paul:

'For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves. Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.'
(Acts 20:29-31)"
