The Bible Way To Heaven

Unless you had clear directions and a map, you were destined to get lost.
 
God has given us clear directions to get to Heaven. You and I have never been there before—it would be wise to listen to God’s directions instead of making up our own. Proverbs 14:12 tells us: “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
 
Good works, church membership, or baptism might “seem” the right way to Heaven, but God says that our ways will produce failure. 
 
God’s Son, Jesus Christ, clearly states: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)
 
There is ONE road to Heaven: Jesus Christ!

Articles of Faith

                We believe in a supernatural Bible, which tells of a supernatural Christ, Who had a supernatural birth, Who spoke supernatural words, Who performs supernatural miracles, Who lived a supernatural life, Who died a supernatural death, Who rose in supernatural splendor, Who interceded as a supernatural priest and Who will one day return in supernatural glory to establish a supernatural kingdom on the earth.

I.  OF THE SCRIPTURE                
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men supernaturally inspired; that it has without any admixture of error for its matter; and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the age, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man; the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.                
 
1. By “The Holy Bible” we mean that collection of sixty-six books, from Genesis to Revelation, which as originally written does not only contain and convey the Word of God, but IS the very WORD OF GOD. We believe the Authorized 1611 King James is to be preserved as the Word of God to the English speaking peoples, and that no other translation shall be used in the teaching and preaching of God’s Word. (I Tim. 3:10 & 11): II Peter 1: 19-21; Cor. 2 : 19-21 and Rev. 21: 18-19.                
 
2. By “Inspiration” we mean that the books of the Bible were written by holy men of old, as they were moved by the Holy Spirit, in such a definite way that their writings were supernaturally and verbally inspired and free from error, as no other writing have ever been or ever will be inspired.
 
II Tim. 3:16: 17: II Pet. 1:19-21; Acts 1:16; Acts 28:25; Psa. 119: 105 Psa. 119: 130; Luke 24: 25-27; John 17:17; Lukw 24: 44-45; psa. 119:89; Prov. 30: 5-6; Rom. 3:4; 1 Pet. 1:23; Rev. 22:19; John 12:48; Isa. 8:20; Eph. 6:17; Rom. 15:4; Luke 16:31; Psa. 19: 7-11: John 5:45-47; John 5:39.
 
II. OF THE TRUE GOD                
We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God, and infinite, intelligent Spirit, the maker and supreme ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.                
Ex. 20:2-3; Gen. 17:1; Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:6; John 4:24; Psa. 147:5; Psa. 83:18; Psa. 90:2; Jer. 10:10; Ex. 15:11; Rev. 4:11; I Tim. 1:17; Rom. 11:33; Mark 12:30; Matt. 28:19; John 15:26; I Cor. 12: 4-6; I John 5:7; John 10:30; John 17:5; Acts 5: 3-4; I Cor. 2:10-11: Phil. 2:5-6; Eph. 2:18; II Cor. 13:14.
 
III. OF THE HOLY SPIRIT                
That the Holy Spirit is a divine person; equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature; that He was active in the creation; that in His relation to the unbelieving world He restrains the Evil one until God’s purpose is fulfilled; that he convicts of sin, of judgment and of righteousness; that he bears witness to the Truth of the gospel in preaching and testimony; that He is the agent in the New Birth; that He seals, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies and helps the believer. We believe that signs of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking in tongues and the gift of healing were temporary. We believe that speaking in tongues was never the common or necessary sign of the baptism or filling of the Holy Spirit and that ultimate deliverance of the body from sickness or death awaits the consummation of our salvation in the resurrection through God, Who frequently chooses to answer the prayer of believers for physical healing.
 
(I Cor. 1:22; 13:8; 14:21-22) John 14:17:17; Matt. 28:19; Heb. 9:14; John 14:26; Luke 1:35; Gen. 1:1-3; II Thess. 2:7; John 16:8-11; John 15: 26-27; Acts 5:30-32; John 3: 5-6; Eph. 1: 13-14; Matt. 3:11; Mark 1:8; Luke 3:16; John 1:33; Acts 11:16; Luke 24:49; John 16:13; John 14:26; Rom. 8:14-16; II Thess. 2:13; I Pet. 1:2; Rom. 8:26-27.
 
IV. OF THE DEVIL, OR SATAN                
We believe that Satan was once holy, and enjoyed the heavenly honors; but through pride and ambition to be as the Almighty, fell and drew after him a host of angels; that he is now the prince of the power of the air, and the unholy god of this world. We hold him to be man’s great tempter, the enemy of God and His Christ, the accuser of the saints, the author of all false religions, the chief power back of the present apostasy; the lord of the Antichrist, and the author of all the powers of darkness – destined however to final defeat at the hands of God’s own Son, and to the judgment of an eternal justice in hell, a place prepared for him and his angels.                
 
Isa. 14:12-15; Ezek. 28:14-17; Rev. 12:9; Jude 6: II Pet. 2:4; Eph. 2:2; John 14:30; I Thess. 3:5; Matt. 4: 1-3; I Pet. 5:8; I John 3:8; Matt. 13:25; 37:39; Luke 22:3-4; Rev. 12:10; II Cor. 11:13-15; Mark 12:21-22; I John 4:3; II John 7; I John 2:22; Rev. 13: 13-14; II Thess. 2:8-11; Rev. 19:11, 16, 20; Rev. 12:7-9; Rev. 20: 1-3; Rev. 20:10; matt. 25:41.
 
V.  OF CREATION
 
We believe in the Genesis account of creation, and that it is to be accepted literally, and not allegorically or figuratively; that man was created directly in God’s own image and after His own likeness; that man’s creation was not a matter of evolution or evolutionary change of species, or development through interminable periods of time from lower to higher forms; that all animal and vegetable life was made directly and God’s established law was that they should bring forth only “after their kind.”
               
Gen. 1:1; Ex. 20:11; Acts 4:24; Col. 1:16-17; Heb. 11:3; John 1:3; Rev. 10:6; Rom. 1:20; Acts 17:23-26; Jer. 10:12; Neh. 9:6; Gen. 1:26-27; Gen. 2:21-23; Gen. 1:1; Gen. 1:24.
 
VI. OF THE FALL OF MAN                
 
We believe that man was created in innocence under the law of his Maker, but by voluntary transgression fell from his sinless and happy state, in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners, not by constraint, but of choice; and therefore under just condemnation without defense or excuse.                
 
Gen. 3:1-6, 24; Rom. 5:12; Rom. 5:19; Rom. 3:10-19; Eph. 2:1, 3; Rom. 1:18; Ezek. 18:19-20; Rom.1:32, Rom. 1:20; Rom. 1:28; Gal. 3:22.
 
VII. OF THE VIRGIN BIRTH                
 
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Ghost, in a miraculous manner; born of Mary, a virgin, as no other man was ever born or can ever be born of woman, and that He is both the Son of God and God the Son.                
 
Gen.3:15; Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:18-25; Luke 1:35; Mark 1:1; John 1:14; Psa. 2:7; Gal. 4:4; I John 5:20; I Cor. 15:47.
 
VII. OF ATONEMENT FOR SIN                
 
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace; through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God, who by appointment of the Father, freely took upon Him our nature, yet without sin, honored the divine law by his personal obedience, and by His death made a full and vicarious atonement for our sins; that His atonement consisted not in setting us an example by his death as a martyr, but was a voluntary substitution of Himself in the sinner’s place, the Just dying for the unjust, Christ the Lord, bearing our sins in His own body on the tree; that, having risen from the dead, He is now enthroned in heaven and uniting in His wonderful person the tenderest sympathies with divine perfection, He in every way qualified to be a suitable, a compassionate and an all-sufficient Savior.   
             
Eph. 2:8; Acts 15:11; Rom. 3:24; John 3:16; Matt. 18:11; Phil. 2:7; Heb. 2:14; Isa. 53: 4-7; Rom. 3:25; I John 4:10; I Cor. 15:3; II Cor. 5:21; John 10:18; Phil 2:8; Gal. 1:4; I Pet. 2:24; I Pet. 3:18; Isa. 53:11; Heb. 12:2; I Cor. 15:20; Isa. 53:12; Heb. 9:12-15; Heb. 7:25; I John 2:2.
 
IX. OF GRACE IN THE NEW CREATION                
 
We believe that in order to be saved, sinners must be born again; that the new birth is a new creation in Christ Jesus; that it is instantaneous and not a process; that in the new birth, the one that was dead in trespasses and in sins is made a partaker of the divine nature and received eternal life, the manner above our comprehension, not by culture, not by character, nor by the will of man, but wholly and solely by the power of the Holy Spirit in connection with divine truth, so as to secure our voluntary obedience to the Gospel; that its proper evidence appears in the holy fruits of repentance and faith and newness of life.                
John 3:3; II Cor. 5:17; Luke 5:27; I John 5:1; John 3: 6-7; Acts 2:41; II Pet. 1:4; Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:1; II Cor. 5:19; Col. 2:13; John 1:12-13; Gal. 5;22; Eph. 5:9.
 
X. OF THE FREENESS OF SALVATION
 
We believe in God’s electing grace; that the blessings of salvation are made free to all 
by the gospel; that it is the immediate duty of all to accept them by a cordial, penitent and an obedient faith; and nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner on earth but his own inherent depravity and voluntary rejection of the gospel; which rejection involves him in an aggravated condemnation. None are predestined to hell.
 
I Thess. 1:4; Col. 3:12; I Pet. 1:2; Titus 1:1; Rom. 8:29-30; Rom. 10:13; Matt. 11:28; Isa. 55:1; Rev. 22:17; John 6:37; Isa. 55:6; Acts 2:38; Isa. 55:7; John 3: 15-16; I Tim. 1:15; I Cor. 15:10; Eph. 2:4-5; John 5:40; John 3:18; John 3:36.
 
XI. OF JUSTIFICATION
 
We believe that the great gospel blessing which Christ secures to such as believe in Him is Justification; that Justification included the pardon of sin, and the gift of eternal life on principles of righteousness; that it is bestowed not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done; but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood, His righteousness is imputed unto us.                
 
Acts 13:39; Isa. 53:11; Zech. 13:1; Rom. 8:1; Rom. 5:9; Rom 5:1; Tit. 3: 5-7; Rom. 1:17; Hab. 2:4; Gal. 3:11; Rom. 4:1-8; Heb. 10:38.
 
XII. OF REPENTANCE AND FAITH
 
We believe that Repentance and Faith are solemn obligations, and also inseparable graces, wrought in our souls by the quickening Spirit of God; thereby, being deeply convicted of our guilt, danger and helplessness, and of the way of salvation by Christ, we turn to God with unfeigned contrition, confession, and supplication for mercy; at the same time heartily receiving the Lord Jesus Christ and openly confessing him as our only and all-sufficient Savior.                
 
Acts 20:21; Mark 1:15; Acts 2:37; Luke 18:13; Rom. 10:13; Psa. 51: 1-4; Psa. 51:7; Isa. 55:6-7; Luke 12:8; Rom. 10: 9-11.
 
XIII. OF THE CHURCH
 
We believe that a Baptist Church is a congregation of baptized believers associated by a covenant of faith and fellowship of the gospel, said church being understood to be the citadel and propagator of the Divine and Eternal grace; observing the ordinances of Christ; governed by His laws; exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word; that its officers of ordination are pastors or elders whose qualifications, claims and duties are clearly defined in the scriptures; we believe the true mission  of the church is found in the Great Commission: First, to make individual disciples: Second, to build up the church; Third, to teach and instruct as He has commanded. We do not believe in the reversal of this order; we hold that the local church has the absolute right of self government, free from the interference of any hierarchy of individuals or organizations; and that the one and only superintendent is Christ through the Holy Spirit; that it is scriptural for true churches to cooperate with each other in contending for the faith and for the furtherance of the Gospel; that every church is the sole and only judge of the measure and method of its cooperation; on all matters of membership, of policy, of government, of discipline, of benevolence, the will of the local church is final.
 
Acts 2:41; Acts 2:42; I Cor. 11:2; Eph. 1:22-23; Eph. 4:11; I Cor. 12:4, 8-11; Acts 14:23; Acts 6:5-6; Acts 15:23; Acts 20:17-28; I Tim. 3:1-13; Matt. 28:19-20; Col. 1:18; Eph. 5:23-24; I Pet. 5:1-4; Acts 15:22; Jude 3,4; II Cor.8:23-24; I Cor.16:1; Mal. 3:10; Lev.27:31; I Cor.16:2; I Cor. 6:1-3; I Cor. 5:11-13
 
XIV. OF BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER                
 
We believe that Christian baptism is the total immersion in water of a believer; in the name of the Father, the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, with the authority of the local church. To show forth in a solemn and beautiful emblem our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior, with its effect and in our death to sin and resurrection to a new life. We believe in the Lord’s Supper; by the sacred use of bread and the fruit of the vine are to commemorate together the broken body and shed blood  of Christ, preceded always by solemn self-examination. The Lord’s Supper (Communion) shall normally be served to the assembled church by the Pastor or some person designated by the church and the deacons on the first Sunday of each month and/or at the discretion of the Pastor and deacons. Since it is the Lord’s Table, none who are born again believers shall be barred, but the Pastor shall state to Scriptural order according to (I Cor. 11:23-30) which places a consistent Christian life as a prerequisite to communion and shall explain the meaning of the ordinance.
 
Acts 8:36-39; Matt. 3:6; John 3:23; Rom. 8:4-5; Matt. 3:16, Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:3-5; Col. 2:12; Acts 2:41-42; Matt. 28:1, 9-20; I Cor. 11:23-28
 
XV. OF THE PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS                
 
We believe that such only are real believers as endure to the end; that their persevering attachment to Christ is the grand mark which distinguishes them from superficial professors; that a special Providence watches over their welfare; and that they are kept by the power of God through faith unto eternal salvation.
 
John 8:31-32; Col. 1:21-23; I John 2:19; Matt. 13:19-21; Rom. 8:28; Matt. 6:20; Psa. 121:3; Heb. 1:14; I Pet. 1:5; Phil.1:6; John 10:28,29; John 16:8; Rom. 8:35-39.
 
XVI. OF THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE WICKED                
 
We believe that there is a radical and essential difference between the righteous and the wicked; that such only as through faith are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and sanctified by the Spirit of our God, our truly righteous in His esteem; while all such as continue in impenitence and unbelief are in His sight wicked, and under the curse, and this distinction holds among men both in and after death, in the everlasting felicity of the saved and the everlasting conscious suffering of the lost.
 
Mal. 3:8; Gen.18:23; Rom.6:17-18; Pro. 11:31; I Pet. 1:18; Rom. 1:17; I Cor. 15:22; Acts 10:34-35; I John 2:29; I John 2:7; Rom. 6:16; I John 5:19; Gal.3:10; Rom. 7:6; Rom. 6:23; Pro. 14:32; Luke 16:25; Matt. 25:34,41; John 8:21; Luke 9:26; John 12:25; Matt. 7:13-14
 
XVII. OF CIVIL GOVERNMENT                
 
We believe that civil government is of divine appointment, for the interests and good order of human society; that magistrates are to be prayed for, conscientiously honored and obeyed; except only in things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ; who is  only Lord of the conscience, and the coming Prince of the kings of the earth.
 
Rom. 13:7; II Sam. 23:3; Ex. 18:21-22; Acts23:5; Matt. 22:21; Tit. 3:1; I Pet. 2:13,14; I Pet. 2:17; Acts 4:19-20; Dan. 3:17-18; Matt. 10:28; Matt. 23:10; Phil. 2:10-22; Psa. 72:11
 
XVIII. OF THE RESURRECTION AND RETURN OF CHRIST AND RELATED EVENTS                
We believe in and accept the sacred Scriptures upon these subjects at their face values.  Of the resurrection, we believe that Christ rose bodily “the third day according to the Scriptures” that He alone is our “merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God;” “that this same Jesus which is taken up from you into Heaven shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into Heaven” Bodily, personally, and visible; that the “dead in Christ shall rise first” that the living saints” shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump;” “that the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His Father David;” and that “Christ shall reign a thousand years in righteousness until He hath put all enemies under His feet.”
 
Matt. 28:6-7; Luke 24:39; John 20:27; I Cor. 15; Mark 16:6; Luke 24:2; Acts 1:9-11; Luke 24:51; Mark 16:19; Rev. 3:21; Heb. 8:1; Heb. 12:2; Heb. 8:6; I Tim. 2:5; I John 2:1; Heb. 2:17; Heb. 5:9-10; John 14:1-6; I Thess. 4:16; Matt. 24:27; Heb. 9:28; I Cor. 15:42-44, 51-53; I Thess. 4:17; Phil. 4:20-21; Luke 1:32; I Cor. 15:25; Isa. 11:4-5; Psa. 72:8; Rev. 20:1-4; Rev. 20:6.
 
XIX. OF MISSIONS            
 
The command to give the gospel to the world is clear and unmistakable and this Commission was given to the Churches.
 
Mat 28:18-20  And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  (19)  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  (20)  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
 
Mar 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
 
John 20:21  Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
 
Rom 10:13-15  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  (14)  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?  (15)  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
 
XX. Of The Grace of Giving
 
Scriptural giving is one of the fundamentals of the faith.
 
2Co 8:7  Therefore, as ye abound in everything, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also.

We are commanded to bring our gifts into the storehouse (common treasury of the church) upon the first day of the week.

1Co 16:2  Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God
hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

Under grace we give, and do not pay, the tithe-“Abraham GAVE the tenth of the spoils” Heb. 7:2,4 and this was four hundred years before the law, and is confirmed in the New Testament; Jesus said concerning the tithe “these ye ought to have done” Matt. 23;23  We are commanded to bring the tithe into the common treasury of the church.

Lev 27:30  And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD.
 
Mal 3:10  Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

In the New Testament it was the common treasury of the church.

Act 4:34-37  Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,  (35)  And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.  (36)  And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,  (37)  Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it
at the apostles’ feet.
 
XXI. OF HUMAN SEXUALITY  
              
We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity should be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex.
 
Gen. 2:24; Gen. 19:5-13; Gen. 26:8-9; Lev. 18:1-30; Rom. 1:26-29; I Cor. 5:1, 6:9; I Thess. 4:1-8; Heb. 13:4.
 
XXII. OF DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE                
 
We believe that God hates divorce and intends marriage to last until one of the spouses dies.  Divorce and remarriage is regarded as adultery except on the grounds of fornication. Although divorced and remarried persons or divorced person may hold positions of service in the church and be greatly used by God for Christian Service, they may not be considered for the offices of pastor or deacon.                
 
Mal. 2:14-17; Matt. 19:3-12; Rom. 7:1-3; I Tim. 3:2, 12; Tit. 1:6
 
XXIII. OF ABORTION                
 
We believe that human life begins at conception and that the unborn child is a living being.  Abortion constitutes the unjustified, unexcused taking of unborn human life.  Abortion is murder.  We reject any teaching that abortions of pregnancies due to rape incest, birth defects, gender selection, birth or population control, or the mental well-being of the mother are acceptable.                  
 
Psa. 51:5, 139:14-16; Isa. 44:24, 49:1,5; Jer. 1:5, 20:15-18; Luke 1:44
