1) The Holy Trinity:


  • 1John 5:7-8 "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one."
  • Genesis 1:26 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."
  • Genesis 3:22 "And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever..."


We believe that God is a three part being: the Father, the Son (Word), and the Holy Ghost. 1John5:7-8 clearly states this. In Genesis 1:26 and Genesis 3:22, God makes reference to himself as "us" and "our image." "Us" and "our" meaning more than one.

2) God is our creator:

  • Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."

  • All of Genesis Chapter 1

We believe that God, not evolution, is the creator of all things, including man, the heavens and the earth, the universe, and all living things contained within. Genesis chapter one, and most clearly in Genesis 1:1 illustrates that God is our creator. While we agree that small changes such as adaptations may be responsible for the way we are now (skin color, skin thickness, tonsils and appendix having no clear function today), overall Evolution does not exist.

3) God:


  • 1John 1:5 "This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all."

  • 1John 4:8 "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. "

  • Titus 1:2 "In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began."
  • Hebrews 6:18 "That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie..."
  • 1Corinthians 14:33 "For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints."

As stated in the scriptures above, we believe that God is light and has no darkness (evil) in him at all. God is love. God cannot lie, and God is not the author of confusion (he will not try to confuse us in his Word the Bible), but is the author of peace.

4) Sin entered into the world by man:


  • Romans 5:12 "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned..."

  • All of Genesis Chapter 3
We believe that man caused sin to enter the world, not God.

**- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -**

5) All humans need Jesus to gain entrance into heaven:


  • Romans 6:3-7 "Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin."

  • James 2:10 "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all."

  • Romans 3:23"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."

  • Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

  • Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the lord shall be saved."

  • Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

  • John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father but by me."

  • 1John 2:23 "Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father; but he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the father also."

  • 1John 2:1-2 "If any man sin, we have an advocate with the father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and he is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world."
We believe that because sin entered into the world by human error, and because all humans sin, and because all humans fall short of the glory of God, we are unable to gain entrance to heaven and save ourselves, and need the help of Jesus Christ the Righteous. No man woman or child can have eternal salvation without Jesus Christ. We also believe that salvation is gained through faith in Jesus Christ, not through works, because no matter what good works we do, or what kind of good people we are, we still fall short of the glory of God. Salvation is not because of something we do, but of what we believe.

6)
Salvation through confession:

  • Romans 1-:9-10 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
  • 1John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
We believe that to gain entrance to heaven and have eternal salvation you must confess that Jesus is the Christ (the son of God) and that he died for our sins on the cross, and was resurrected afterwards.

7)
Eternal Salvation:

  • Hebrews 6:4-6 "For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, if they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance, seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame."

  • 1John 2:25 "And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life."
  • 1John 5:11-12 "And this is the record that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life."
We believe that seeing how the scriptures tell us that if we accept Jesus Christ as our savior we will have eternal life (eternal meaning forever) that it is impossible to lose your salvation once it is gained (you can't lose your salvation by sinning too much after you are saved... yes, they even let murders, liars, thiefs, and adulterers into heaven). You cannot lose your salvation, because Jesus offers his salvation to every person in existence, and according to Hebrews 6:4-6, you cannot lose your salvation once you have it because to lose it would mean you could gain it again, and Jesus was the perfect sacrifice, meaning he only needed to be sacrificed the one time... if you were to lose your salvation and then gain it again, it would mean Jesus would have to die again on the cross for you, which is impossible, therefore you cannot lose your salvation, it is eternal (forever).

8)
Our savior Jesus Christ:

  • Ephesians 3:9 "...God, who created all things by Jesus Christ..." (By (through) Jesus Christ)

  • We believe that our savior Jesus Christ the righteous (being one with God) cannot lie, is 100% holy, is light, is love, and has no darkness (or evil) at all in him.

  • We believe that Jesus is the one and only son of God.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is NOT the brother of Lucifer/Satan, as this is never ever said any place in the Holy Bible of God. Furthermore, the Bible says that Jesus is not created, but that Lucifer is created (an angel... God created all angels). How can they be brothers if Jesus is one with God and is not created, and God created Lucifer? That would mean that if they were brothers, Jesus would have had to create his own brother (Ephesians 3:9)... Jesus and Satan are NOT brothers.

9) The return of Jesus Christ:

  • We believe that Jesus Christ will one day return to set up and claim his kingdom (Revelation).

  1. It's very important to understanding the underlying mentality/psychology of Calvinists and other similar Protestant ideologies. They are sociopathic ideologies. They further use ego defense mechanisms (ex. projection, denial, etc.) to create doctrines which justify their ongoing evil behavior and suppressing the need to turn away from their sin. Such ideologies create dead consciences in people and make them into sociopaths. Satan (the father of narcissism and sociopathy) has infiltrated and created his own spiritual clones through humans- to destroy and discredit Christianity. Sociopaths rarely change and you have to be very careful interacting with them. If interested, refer to my posts:
