to be in agreement with these major doctrines of Scripture.
If your church is a part of the New Trends: Emergent or Purpose Driven
rather than Holy Spirit Driven, please do not apply for listing.
We want to maintain "Truth in Advertising"
The Scriptures (Bible: both Old and New Testaments) are the inspired,
infallible, inerrant Word of God(2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; Psalm 19:7-11). In them God has revealed Himself as being Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16,17; 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14), and as having created all things (Genesis 1, John 1:1-3; Colossians 3:16,
17), with Adam being created on the sixth literal day (Genesis 1:27).
With the fall of Adam and Eve, the sin nature has passed to all mankind (Romans
5:12). By nature and practice all men are sinners and are therefore under God's condemnation (Romans 3:10-23; Romans 6:23; John 3:36). God, by His great love (John 3:16), sent Jesus (the promised Messiah of the Old Testament, God in the flesh, The Christ)
(Isaiah 9:6; John 1:14, 41; 4:25-26), to this earth. He was born of a virgin (Isaiah
7:14; Matthew 1:21-23), lived a sinless life and willingly gave His life and blood as a sacrifice and payment
for the sins of the world (1 Peter 1:18-20; 2:22-24; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
He was buried, rose bodily from the dead (John 19 & 20; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4), ascended into heaven (Acts 1:9), is seated at the Father's right hand interceding for believers (Romans 8:34),
and will return for His saints ("And so shall we ever be with the Lord.")(I Thessalonians 4:13-18; John 14:1-3).
He is coming back to earth to rule in righteousness (Revelation 19:11-20:4).
Each person must trust in Christ's atoning blood for his/her own sinfulness and sin (Romans 5:11; Hebrews 9:22; John 3:14-18), repent (Mark 1:14,15; Acts 17:30; 20:21)
and turn to Christ for forgiveness and, thus, be born again. (Romans 10:9,10, 13; John 3:1-7). "Therefore if any man (person: man, woman, boy, girl)be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)
All the ungodly and unregenerate who die without Christ will (Luke 16:19-31), appear at the Great White Throne Judgment, to stand
before Jesus Christ, their Judge; and because their names are not written in the Book of Life, will be cast into the lake of fire, which is the second death (Revelation 20:11-15).
All believers are to live righteously (Romans 12:1,2; Titus 2:11-14; 1 Peter 2:11), by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-24; Ephesians 5:18)
, and have a responsibility to be separated from the world (1 John 2:15-17) and ecumenism (2 Corinthians 6:14-18). Because of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19,20), all believers have the responsibility to be witnesses (Acts 1:8) by life and word,(Matthew 5:13-16) to the lost.
The ordinances of the church are believer's baptism (after salvation, by immersion) (Acts 2:41; 8:35-38) and the
Lord's Supper (1 Corinthians 11:23-32). Both are for believers; neither provides a
way to salvation (Ephesians 2:8, 9; Titus 3:5). Baptism is symbolic of the believer's death, burial, and resurrection with Christ (Romans 6:1-6). We do not believe that the New Testament gift of tongues is functioning at this time (1 Corinthians 13:8-10).
Believers are not to forsake the assembling of themselves together (Hebrews 10:24,25).
Therefore, This Church Directory provides these church listings so that
