              My Doctrinal Statement For Your Approval For Life!
I think it important to define who I am if I expect those true believers to listen to what I say. Please take the time and go through these statements and contact me if you have any questions. I have deeply considered all that the bible teaches concerning doctrine. Take the time and study it for yourself. Here are the statements. A further note.
"I think it important and practical for you to be able to go to the scriptures and find out for yourselves just what it is that I believe. I have been a Christian long enough to be able to classify my belief by a means of coming to the scriptures.  If these particular text that are used to define my belief, my question is, what is it that you believe? We must come to a general understanding of what Christianity teaches.  
We can only come to that understanding by defining our personal scriptural belief. That definition is not to come from others that have not lived in us, nor can we do this as a collective body of believers. I have found that others that claim to have the same belief as myself in reality do not. Standing next to another so called believer in the "Lion Den" is not the place to discover ones loyalties. I stand on the word of God. My mannerisms might be somewhat difficult for many to affirm, but my personal belief in the Holy Scriptures has become the controlling factor in what it is that I believe."  

One more thing, let me make this clear, I have not adopted any view because of my seminary professors. I have studied before I attended graduate school. I have the greatest respect for men who have studied and placed their lives on the line for what they believe. I shall never betray those men that took me further in my theological training. I am shocked by so called men that have changed their views and proceeded in dragging the church through the gutter with them. I shall never place a premium on human ignorance as many so called pastors have done by denying educational theological insights. The early church fathers were men of letters. lets not throw that away, we must remain careful in our interpretation of what we say we believe. I remain open to challenge from any in our out of my community in anything you read on this site. Call me on it. Stand with me on or in any forum with open Bible and lets get it on. That is how confident I am in the blessed word of God, The Bible, all and only "66" book therein! Pastor John "In the fight for life!"
Biblical Guidelines

"I believe that the sixty six books of the Protestant Bible, otherwise known as the complete canon, are none other than the special revelation as issued from God. Also, that the Holy Scriptures themselves of the Old and the New Testament were composed without error and that the church possesses the reliable copies of these documents."

Luke 11:28, John 5:39, Romans 1:2, 1st Corinthians 15:3, 2nd Timothy 2:15, 2nd Timothy 3:15, Hebrews 4:12, James 1:21, 1st Peter 2:2, 1st Peter 4:11

"I believe that there is only one true and living God who manifest Himself as three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I also believe that the triune God is eternal, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent and immutable."

Genesis 17:1, Job 42:2, Matthew 19:26, Acts 17:24, Acts 26:8, 1st Kings 8:27, Jeremiah 23:23-24, Matthew 1:18 & 20, Matthew 28:19, Luke 3:22, Matthew 3:16, John 14:16-17 & 26, John 15:28 / 16:7, 13-15

"I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the second person of the Holy Trinity. I believe that He was conceived in the womb of the virgin Mary, by the power of the Holy Spirit and that He lived a sinless life and worked many miracles. I believe that He is both true God and true man. I believe that Jesus died on the cross as a substitution for man's sins. I believe that He was buried and was physically resurrected from the dead on the third day for our justification. I also believe that this same Jesus is now seated on the heavens at the right hand of the Father and is coming back to judge the living and the dead." Oh one more thing, JESUS IS GOD! Please do not insult my intelligence by asking me questions as to His nature. I do understand the incarnation.

John 6:35, 41, 48, 50, 51, 53, 58, 8:12, John 10:9-11 & 14, John 11:25, John 14:6, John 15: 1-7, Colossians 3:4, 1st Timothy 1:10, Matthew 3:3, Psalm 24:7, James 2:1, Philippians 2:6, John 12:41, 1st Peter 2:8, Psalm 110:1, Matthew 22:42-45, Titus 2:13

"I believe that the Holy Spirit possesses all of the attributes of God and is indeed a person. He is God, the Holy Spirit, third person of the trinity."

John 6:45 & 63, John 7:38, John 14:16-17 & 26, John 15:26, John 20:22, Acts 2:1-4 & 33-38, Acts 4:8, 5:3, 6:5, 7:51,

"I believe that man was created in the image of God and that he enjoyed perfect fellowship with God prior to the fall. We also believe that Adam, the first man created by God, sinned and as a result the entire human race fell. I also believe that all men and women are darkened in their understanding and alienated from God because of sin. We also believe that all humans are in desperate need of salvation through the redemptive act of Christ which He provided for us when He died on the cross for our sins."

Genesis 1:27, & 2:21-22, Romans 2:1, Matthew 12:33, John 8:34 & 44, Romans 5:12, James 1:14, 2:10, 4:1-3 & 17, 2nd Peter 1:4, 1st John 3:4, 8-10 & 15, 1st John 5:17

"I believe that mankind is only justified on the basis of the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross. I also believe that mankind is born again solely by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. There are no works involved in man's justification. This does not discount the fact that we as Christians are saved unto good works. I believe that these good works will naturally follow after genuine conversion has occurred. I also believe that all who have received Christ will immediately be in the presence of Christ the moment of death. At the second coming of Christ, their bodies will be raised and transformed into the glorious likeness of the resurrected body of Christ. Lastly, I also believe that all who reject Christ in this life will consciously suffer apart from God for all eternity in the lake of fire called HELL! I teach this as the Bible does and we preach of this correct biblical doctrine on a regular basis without shame and remorse for what it does to those who know not the Lord!"

Matthew 8:11-12, 10:28, 13:30, 18:8-9 & 34-35, 22:13,2nd Thes. 1:9, 2nd Peter 2:4, Jude 6 & 23, Revelation 9:1, 19:20

"I believe in a church universal as well as a church local which consist of all those who truly believe in Jesus Christ. I would also believe that people of all races, creeds, and cultures are welcomed as brothers and sisters. I see ourselves as just a part of the universal church in this local congregation."

Matthew 16:18, 18:17, Acts 2:47, 1st Corinthians 11:18 Acts 20:28, 1st Timothy 3:15
If you have any further questions concerning the statement and these biblical beliefs, I would ask that you use the space below and write your questions out that we might take the time and provide answers; 1st Peter 3:15 I would also hope that you find the ministry and teachings of this church body biblically satisfactory in terms of our commitment to Christ in every possible way.

Again one can clearly see that a lot of thought has gone into this doctrinal statement. If a ministry does not have these statements in tack in such a form where others can see and know, as well as test these beliefs even by death, I have only spoken silly words. These statements are what I believe. I have adopted them from other fine people who in their consciences has determined that dying is better than denying all that we have found to be true in the teachings of the scriptures.
