WE BELIEVE in the Divine inspiration
of the Holy Scriptures known as the Holy Bible which is
“able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which
is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of
God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for
correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man
of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good
works” (2Timothy 3:15-17).
In accord we are continually growing in
our understanding and spiritual walk.
With the Protestants and Reformers of the
fifteenth century, we proclaim, SOLA SCRIPTURA, which
translated means that we base our beliefs upon “THE WORD OF
GOD ALONE” which is the Holy Bible.
When Jesus had completed His work here on
the earth and was preparing to end His ministry for all
people, He prayed to the Father for His disciples, "I pray
not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that
thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the
world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through
thy truth: thy word is truth. ...Neither pray I for these
alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through
their word; That they all may be one" (John 17:
The Christian Church was born. As long as
they followed the teachings of Jesus and kept from the
world, they were the pure church. But as so often happens
as time goes by, things changed. The world crept into the
church inch by inch at first, then like night and day, wrong
was substituted for right. All that proclaims to be
"Christian" is not, if it doesn't measure up to the
teachings of Jesus and avoids the world.
The Bible Sabbath of the fourth
commandment was CHANGED to the venerable day of the Sun.
The Roman emperor Constantine in 321A.D. legislated the
first Sunday law.
The Passover or Lord's Supper was CHANGED
to Easter, the pagan festival of spring by the "universal
church" at the first council of Nicea in 325A.D.
Other ancient pagan holidays were
replacing the annual holy days declared by the Creator.
Graven images (idols) were brought into
the church and paraded for the people to reverence breaking
the second commandment.
The "Pure, White" church was quickly
becoming a "grey area" as it persecuted the people that
insisted on keeping the commandments of God and holding fast
to the faith of Jesus. They never succeeded in stamping out
the "True Christians" entirely, and history proves that
there were scattered remnants of God's true church observing
the Passover, the Seventh-day Sabbath, and all the other
annual days all down through the centuries, just as there
are latter-day remnants of God's true church observing those
WHAT CAN WE BELIEVE today? "To the
law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to
this word, it is because there is no light in them" (Isaiah
8:20). Believe the Word of God and the LORD Jesus Christ
and thou shall be saved!
