We hold the King James Version of the Bible as the preserved, inspired, inherent Word of God for the English speaking world and the Reina -Valera 1960, likewise, for the Spanish speaking world.

The Resurrection of Christ

We believe that Christ arose from the dead on the third day according to the scriptures, Acts 1:9, 10; I John 2:1.

The Intercession of Christ

We believe that only He is our Great High Priest, and that we do not need the intercession of any man, but that Christ lives forever to intercede for us, Hebrews 4:14; 7:2

The Local, New Testament Church

We believe that a church is a body of called out, baptized believers whose mission it is to preach and teach the Gospel of Salvation to every individual soul, Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:21-23; I Corinthians 12:4-31; Matthew 3:11; Hebrews 12:23.
