"Our Beliefs"

1. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. The KJV is God’s Word preserved in the English language and by virtue of its preservation it is inspired, infallible, and inerrant.

The second quality is that of intrinsic value. Christ fulfills this. During the course of a discussion with unbelievers, Christ reveals His Deity in John 8:58 “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, …
