Our Beliefs

The aim and final reason of all music should be nothing else but the glory of God and the refreshement of the Spirit.

-- J.S. Bach

That there is one God and He is the Creator and Controller of the universe.

Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

God is manifested in three persons: Father, Son and Spirit. We are to teach others about Him.

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost

All people are sinners condemned to death but we can know how to have eternal life.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

That Jesus Christ, the Son, is the Savior and the only way to the Father.

John14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

That salvation is based on faith alone, but true faith will produce good works.

Ephesians 2:8-10 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. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

The Bible is the infallible inspired Word of God and directs how we are to live.

II Tim. 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. II Pet. 1:20 & 21 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

That the Holy Spirit is given to believers as Guide and Comforter.

Ephesians 1:13 & 14 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

That the Lord Jesus will return again and true Christians will live with Him forever!

Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
