So, what are your thoughts on them?
- Can you boil the essentials down to statements?
- How do you produce freedom or bondage from them?
- Can we design them knowing that God is a mystery and while we have his word, we can't fully contain him in that..?
Behold... (Check out points 4 and 8... there is something amiss here...)
We believe that the King James Bible is the word of God without error.
We believe all Scripture was given by inspiration of God, and that God also promised to preserve his word. Divine inspiration is of no value to Christians without God's promise of preservation.
We believe in the eternal security of the believer
(once saved, always saved).
We believe that the unsaved will spend eternity in torment in a literal hell.
We believe that Jesus is God, and that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Ghost of the virgin Mary.
We believe only in the local church and not in a universal church.
We reject the teaching of Calvinism and believe that God wants everyone to be saved.
We are Non-dispensational.
We believe that life begins at conception (fertilization) and reject all forms of abortion including surgical abortion, "morning-after" pills, IVF (In Vitro Fertilization), birth control pills, and all other processes that end life after conception.
We believe that homosexuality is a sin and an abomination which God
punishes with the death penalty.
We oppose worldliness, modernism, formalism, and liberalism.
