Statement of Faith
I believe it is of great importance to state clearly the doctrines
of the Christian faith. To these doctrines I hold unswervingly,
and it is these doctrines that I seek to teach, explain, and
demonstrate through my Christian Bible studies and online Bible
- The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to
be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings,

who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated
by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ
of which He is the Head.
- That only those who are, thus, members
of the true Church shall be eligible for membership in the local
- That Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church and
that every local church has the right, under Christ, to decide
and govern its own affairs.
- In the personal and premillennial
and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this "Blessed
a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
- In the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to
everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever
to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
