About Us

Who Are We?

We are a group of New Testament Christians who strive to obey God by following His Word, the Bible. Heaven is our ultimate goal.

How Can We Get To Heaven?

According to the Bible, the way to be saved is to:

  • Hear the Word of God

(Matthew 7:24-27, John 5:24, Romans 10:17)

  • Believe the Word of God

(John 3:16, John 8:24, John 20:29)

  • Repent of your sins

(Luke 13:3, Acts 17:30, Acts 3:19)

  • Confess your belief that Jesus is the Christ

(Matthew 10:32, Romans 10:9-10)

  • Be baptized for the forgiveness of sins

(Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3:21)

  • Live a faithful Christian life

(2 Timothy 2:12, Revelation 2:10, Revelation 22:14)

(Note: All verses are from the New King James Version of the Bible)

What Do We Believe?

  • We believe that the Bible, and only the Bible, is the inspired word of God.
    (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  • We believe the Bible teaches that baptism is essential for salvation.
    (1 Peter 3:21, Mark 16:16, Romans 6:4, Galatians 3:27)

    (Luke 22:17-20, I Corinthians 11:23-26)

“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:20-21; NIV).
