Biblical Authority

We believe in the absolute authority of the Holy Scriptures. We believe the original manuscripts were given by inspiration of God and without error. We believe the God who gave His word to man has the power for its preservation, as well as promises to keep them whole (Psalms 12:6-7, Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33). We believe the incorruptible word of God which cannot pass away is available to the English-speaking world in the Authorized (King James) Version. This Bible is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. For further reason to help you better understand our position, please click on this link below for a brief lesson for our conviction regarding the Bible: 
Why We Believe The King James Bible

We seek to let the Bible speak for itself by comparing scripture with scripture. As for paralleling the doctrine we uphold to in this statement of faith for communication in the Spanish tongue, our pastor has decided to utilize the Reina Valera Gomez 2010. After extensive research done by our pastor, in studying the original editions of the 1569 & 1602; comparing verse by verse studies through four other ‘popular’ Spanish translations, he has concluded that the Reina Valera Gomez accurately preserves the words, translation, and doctrinal preservation we seek to maintain from using the King James Bible. 
Disclosure: We are NOT hyper KJV-only to the position that "salvation" can only be communicated through this translation; or that people are unable to 'learn'/'discern' "anything" outside of the KJB; however, we do believe that spiritual growth in doctrine & teaching will be hindered in one's knowledge of God in translations that omit verses which the KJB preserves etc.

Rightly Dividing the Word of God

We believe the best methodology to properly discern, distinguish, and clarify the revelations that God has dispensed to man from Genesis to Revelation is through rightly dividing the word of God. The following explanation bests reflects our position; The writings of Pastor James W. Knox of the Bible Baptist Church in Deland Florida in his book titled "The Law and Rightly Dividing the Word Reconsidered", pages 103-112. "The sum of the matter is this: the most certain way to rightly divide the word is not between the Old Testament and the New, but between the years before God was manifest in the flesh and the years after His incarnation". 
All Who Go To Heaven Will Go There Based On A Threefold Foundation: The Grace Of God, The Blood Of Christ, And The Faith Of Man. 
"Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God"- 1 Corinthians 10:32 KJV. We believe when the student of the Holy Bible can properly discern the biblical differences between the above-mentioned people groups identified by God; then one can appropriately teach, instruct, interpret doctrine safely utilizing this methodology.

The Creation of God

We believe and interpret the creation account found in the book of Genesis by applying a literal methodology for its interpretation, as God expresses within Genesis and other portions of scripture which allude to the creation of the universe in details. We believe the Godhead (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) where active during the creation process, but each member functioned according to the will of God the Father. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, although scripture describes Him with various names, submitted Himself to the Father’s will by creating all things (John 1:1-3, Colossians 1:12-17). We believe in the literal account of creation; each day reflecting a 24-hour period day; completing on the 6th day, and the 7th concluding with God resting (Genesis 2:1-3).

The Godhead

We believe in one God eternally existent as the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost (1John 5:7, Genesis 1:26, Matthew 3:16-17. We believe God to be the Creator and Sustainer of all things Hebrews 1:3, visible and invisible (Colossians 1:16-17). We believe the universe and all that is therein is held together by the power of His word. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ to be God manifest in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16), virgin born (Isaiah 9:6), without sin (2 Corinthians 5:21), crucified, risen, and coming again (1 Corinthians 15) to receive His church, then returning to establish His kingdom. We believe the Holy Spirit reproves the world of sin, righteousness, and of judgment to come and that by His presence and ministration of convicting lost sinners, after they respond to the gospel in faith, secures and seals them by his filling and sealing presence. It is the Holy Spirit who ministers to us individually & corporately through the reading, teaching & preaching from His inspired and preserved words of God.

How you can be saved and have assurance of your salvation

We believe salvation is available to all, provided by God's grace, when anyone responds to the gospel of Jesus Christ through faith. "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (1Jo 5:13 KJB). This bible verse ‘assures’ ANYONE who believes by faith alone in the gospel of Jesus Christ that they presently have, eternal life. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Ro 10:9 KJB). When ANYONE believes personally, sincerely, with all their heart that Jesus ‘Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures’, the Bible declares that they will be saved (1Co 15:3-4). ‘For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast...the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.’ (Eph 2:8-9; Rom 6:23). "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son." (1Jo 5:11 KJB). When one is ready to repent before God (repentance: as in humbly admitting you are a guilty sinner who broke the laws of God He's placed within your conscience; and exercise sincere willingness to turn from trusting/believing/ or participating in that thing, to turn to Jesus), and exercise sincere faith to believe and receive the Lord Jesus Christ into their heart, they will be saved immediately (Ac 3:19; Ac 11:18; Ac 17:30; Ac 20:21; Ac 26:20; Ro 1:16; 1Co 1:18, 21). There is no amount of human works which can assist the sinner in receiving salvation by faith in the gospel. We believe the saved child of God is eternally secure and sealed; taught and comforted by the Holy Spirit unto the day of redemption (2 Corinthians 1: 22, Ephesians 1:13, Ephesians 4:30). We believe salvation makes one a member of the body of Christ spiritually and that His members should assemble physically in a local church near them where they may minister one to another (1 Corinthians 12, Hebrews 10:25, 1 Thessalonians 5:27).

After our conversion, Christian living, and responsibilities

We believe it is the responsibility of every believer to proclaim the saving gospel to all men by personal testimony and by giving of their finances to support the missionary efforts of their local church (Romans 10:15). Once a person comes to saving faith in trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, upon conversion they are immediately given spiritual gifts, callings with spiritual duties and roles, which should be made manifest in assembling with a local church to help and assist its spiritual growth. We believe believers should continually assemble with the church whenever possible. We encourage each member of our church to present their bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is their reasonable service so they can glorify God in their expression of clothing, speech, attitude, conduct with one another.

The consequence of receiving or rejecting the gospel of Jesus Christ

We believe all men rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ will spend eternity in the conscious torment of a literal lake of fire, while those receiving the Lord Jesus Christ will spend eternity in the glorious presence of God. We believe all saved men and women should strive to live separate from the world’s influence both inwardly & outwardly: thereby being holy in spirit, mind, soul, and strength. We believe, however, that spiritual growth in righteousness does not necessarily come by and or through the keeping of laws and commandments; but by an inner change of heart, whereby love for God triumphs over the demands of laws. Sanctification has not only credited us at conversion positionally in Christ, but practically as well; since we continue to live in our mortal bodies, Christ has created a new man within our bodies. It is the responsibility of every saved child of God to yield to the new man, and to put off the old man; whereby the Holy Spirit can help us daily in our resistance against sin, the world, and the devil.

Christian separation from the world

We therefore place emphasis on the inner condition, trusting the outward appearance to follow accordingly. As bible believing Christians, we seek to adhere to biblical rules and guidelines set forth in the New Testament given for our corporate and individual conduct & behavior. As such, we emphasize the need for our members to lead by example. We believe the home is the most important ministry to any believer: For those who are married, their God-given roles as husband and wife; for children as a son or daughter; are all to reflect the church in their behavior and attitude one toward another. "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ." Titus 2:11-13. As Christians, the liberty Christ empowers us provides the ability to no longer live as we used to prior to our conversion; in the world or prior lifestyles etc.; but rather maturing in the newness of life provided us in Christ "as newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby" 1 Peter 1:2. Therefore our lives should reflect the faith we so dear cling to of the Holy One true God in whom we trust and believe in, and "giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed" 2 Corinthians 6:3.

Defining marriage biblically

We accept the Bible's definition of what constitutes a matrimony, between a biological male and female (Genesis 1:26-31, Genesis 2:18-25). Although a nation, people, and or culture may attempt to re-define what is acceptable for this God-given union, we as a bible believing church will up-hold and stand on biblical principles and practice for anyone who desires to marry within this church. The apostle Paul wrote on these matters under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit for New Testament church practice, found but not limited to, Romans 7, 1 Corinthians 7, Ephesians 5. We will hold any Christian accountable who desires to marry within this church, or anyone who comes to seek biblical council on marriage, by the guidelines set forth in the scriptures, that Christians are to marry Christians, as commanded in 2 Corinthians 6:14. Lastly, we will hold the married couple and their family, by the best of their mutual response, accountable to proper Christian conduct and behavior as each member of the household is commanded to act 1 Corinthians 7, Ephesians 5, 1 Timothy 2 & 3, Titus 1.

The autonomy of the local church

We believe that any attempt by the state to interfere with the working of the church or by the church to interfere with the working of the state is a violation of God’s purpose for both. Our local assembly is an independent entity and is responsible for all actions conducted within. As a bible-based church, we conduct church discipline as given by instruction by the New Testament writers, administrate the statutes of the Word of God for the New Testament church, thereby endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

The spiritual priesthood of all born again believers

We believe in the priesthood of all believers and decry any fashion of exalting one member of the body of Christ, or one gift of the Spirit above another. We believe that the church is a body of which Jesus is the Head. Thus, it is not a democracy to be run by the will of its members but is to conduct its temporal as well as its spiritual business in strict accordance with the word of God. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus 1 Timothy 2:5. Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ 1 Peter 2:5.

New Testament church doctrinal applications

Proper Christian practice should be encouraged and reinforced though "Rightly dividing the Word of truth" (2 Tim 2:15) to properly apply what is commanded for the New Testament church, and what is not. We acknowledge that the Lord Jesus Christ established rules and guidelines for His church while on earth, in recognizing ordinances and offices for the church age. The apostle Paul wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians 11, " Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you", we acknowledge that these are expressed in water Baptism by full immersion, and Communion ( or the Lord’s supper ). We believe that partaking of these ordinances clearly divides, distinguishes, and separates the believer from the world. We should therefore live not as ordinary men and women, but as those who have put away their old lives to allow the Lord Jesus Christ to manifest His life in us. The ordinances of water baptism by full immersion, and communion among born again believers is symbolic; and serves as a powerful witness to the inward transformation that manifests itself through outward obedience. We acknowledge the offices for which Christian men alone can seek to apply for and serve in are defined and given in 1 Timothy 3, Titus 1; simply that of a Bishop and Deacon.

Baptism & the Lords supper

We believe that Christian baptism is the single immersion of a believer in water to show forth in a solemn and beautiful figure our identification with the crucified, buried, and risen Savior, through Whom we died to sin and rose to new life. That it is the answer of a good conscience toward God. We believe that the Lord’s Supper is the commemoration of His death until He comes again and should be preceded by solemn self-examination.(Acts 8:36, 38; John 3:23; Rom. 6:3-5; Matt. 3:16; Col. 2:12; I Cor. 11:23-28; Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 2;41,42)

The future 'Blessed Hope of believers' (rapture) and subsequent events

We believe in the blessed hope, an event which can occur at any moment, and that at this future event the dead in Christ shall be raised in glorified bodies first, and the living in Christ shall be given glorified bodies without tasting death, and all shall be caught up to meet the Lord in the air before the seven years of Jacob’s trouble/Tribulation (I Thess. 4:13-18; I Cor. 15:42-44, 51-54; Phil. 3:20, 21; Rev. 3:10).We hold to the pre-millennial position of eschatology. The blessed hope of the body of Christ to be raptured unto her Saviour and thereafter those left behind will experience a 7 year period of tribulation on the earth, with the middle of the 7 year period to start the Great tribulation the time of Jacob's trouble; whereby God will resume His physical dealings and judgements with the literal nation of Israel in the land of promise. At the end of this future 7 year tribulation, we believe in the literal return of Christ in power and great glory, accompanied by the body of Christ glorified, to establish & confirm, and sit upon the throne of David and to establish the millennial kingdom of heaven, ultimately to culminate in both the kingdom of God and heaven being merged in one, with the Son of God to subject the kingdom unto God the Father for the eternal age to come. (Dan. 9:25-27; Matt. 24:29-31; Luke 1:30-33; Isa. 9:6, 7; 11:1-9; Acts 29:29-30; 1 Cor:15, Rev:20:1-4, 6)

The everlasting covenant, promises and restoration of the nation of Israel

Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old. (Mic 7:18-20 KJB)

Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack. The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden. Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD. (Zep 3:14-20 KJB)

Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen. (Ro 9:4-5 KJB)

For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. (Ro 11:25-27 KJB)

We believe that Israel was called out of the nations to be God‘s people, to whom He made an everlasting covenant beginning with Abraham ( Genesis 12), that she is now dispersed because of her disobedience and rejection of Christ ( Matthew 23:29), and that she will be re-gathered in the Holy Land and , after the completion of the Church, will be saved as a nation at the second advent of Christ (Gen. 13:14-17; Rom. 11:1-32; Ezek. 37). Because our aforementioned methodology, we therefore distinguish the difference by rightly dividing between the Jews, Gentiles, and the church of God (1 Corinthians 10:32). God’s promises given Abraham, Issac & Jacob’s descendants have been clearly established in scripture: of which we ought to recognize and carefully distinguish those promises to properly discern application for what’s applicable to the church, or Israel. We therefore pray for the peace, safety, and salvation of Israel and the Jewish people.
