PERMANENT NOTICE

Section 1. The Doctrine of the Scriptures

God's Word is inerrant and infallible (John 17:17), and that the writings of the Old and New Testaments are verbally and plenarily inspired by God (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21). God is the actual author of the Bible (I Thessalonians 2:13). God in His sovereignty preserved His Word and words for all generations (Psalm 12:6-7; Matthew 24:35). Therefore, we have absolute confidence in the Greek Textus Receptus and the Hebrew Masoretic text from which our English Bible, the King James Bible was translated. All preaching and teaching must be from the King James Bible.

Section 2. The Doctrine of God

There is only one God who exists as three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Isaiah 44:6; Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; I John 5:7). Each person of the Godhead is identical in nature, eternal in being, equal in power, and possesses the same divine attributes (John 4:24; Hebrews 1:3). He is the self-existent source of life and creator of all that exists (Exodus 3:14; Jeremiah 32:17; John 5:26; Colossians 1:16-17). God is absolutely holy (Leviticus 11:44-45). He is omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, and immutable (Psalm 139:7-10; Proverbs 15:3; Job 42:2; Malachi 3:6; James 1:17).

Section 3. The Doctrine of Christ

Jesus Christ is God (John 1:1; 10:30; 20:31). He is eternal and was manifest in the flesh (John 1:14). He is the second person of the Godhead and was not created, having neither beginning nor end (Micah 5:2). He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:20-23). He lived a sinless life on earth in the form of a man, and died a voluntary, substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross at Calvary to atone for the sins of mankind (Hebrews 4:15; Isaiah 53:4-6; 1 Peter 2:24).

Section 4. The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is God, existing eternally as the third person of the Godhead. He is equal in essence with both God the Father and God the Son (John 4:24; Acts 5:3-4; Matthew 28:19). The ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer is that of indwelling, sealing, empowering, guiding, teaching, and filling (John 16:13; 14:26; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:9, 11, 16; I Corinthians 6:19; Ephesians 1:13-14; 5:18). The Holy Spirit reproves the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment (John 16:8). He sovereignly bestows spiritual gift(s) to every believer for the edifying of the body of Christ (Romans 12:6-8; I Corinthians 12:8-11; Ephesians 4:11-12).

Temporary sign gifts of the Holy Spirit are not applicable to believers today since we have the completed written revelation of God's Word (I Corinthians 13:8-10).

Section 5. The Doctrine of Angels

God created a perfect host of angelic beings known as angels or "sons of God" (Job 38:4-7). The holy angels are ministering spirits who minister to God's people (Hebrews 1:13-14; Genesis 19:11, 15-16; Psalm 91:11; Acts 27:23-24). They carry believers home after physical death and will be used as God's agents of judgment during the tribulation period (Luke 16:22; Revelation 16:1). Satan, who was created as part of the perfect angelic host of angels, was an exalted angel. Because of his pride, he rebelled against God's authority and was cast from heaven (Isaiah 14:12-17; Ezekiel 28:12-19). Satan is a real, personal, evil spirit being who is the father of all lies, and the god of this world. He blinds the minds of unbelievers and is destined for eternal punishment in the lake of fire (John 8:44; II Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 20:7-10). In his rebellion, he led a third part of the angels with him. These fallen angels are now demons which cooperate with Satan in his efforts to hinder and destroy God's people and God's work (Revelation 12:4; Ephesians 6:12).

Section 6. The Doctrine of Man

The creation of man was a direct act of God on the sixth 24-hour day of God's creation as recorded in Genesis 1 and 2. God took the dust of the ground, formed Adam, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; therefore, man's origin is not the result of an evolutionary process (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:7). Man was created in the image of God possessing a moral not a physical likeness to God (Genesis 1:26). In a state of innocence, he willfully sinned by disobeying God's command (Genesis 2:16-17; 3:6). As a result of this single act of sin, all humanity became subject to sin and death; therefore, all men are sinners born with a sin nature, condemned, and without excuse (Romans 1:20; 3:10, 23; 5:12, 19; Psalm 51:5; John 3:19).

Section 7. The Doctrine of Sin

Sin is the transgression of God's law (I John 3:4). It is the inability to conform to God's standard (Romans 5:6). It is a "missing of the mark" (Romans 3:23). Every human being is born with an inherited sin nature as a result of Adam's disobedience in the garden of Eden (Genesis 3:6; Romans 5:12), therefore making all men sinners. All men are condemned to death (physical, spiritual, eternal) because of this sin nature (Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:11, 15).

Section 8. The Doctrine of Salvation

Salvation is a free gift of God that cannot be merited on any basis of good works (Romans 6:23b; Titus 3:5). It is wholly by God's grace (Ephesians 2:8-9) on the merit of the shed blood of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:24-26). The elements of conversion are repentance and faith (Acts 2:38; 20:21). Once an individual turns from his sins to God and places his faith in Christ
(I Thessalonians 1:9), he is eternally secure and can never lose his salvation (John 3:16, 36; Ephesians 1:13; I John 5:11-13). At the point of salvation, a believer is justified (Romans 5:1). He is sanctified positionally (Hebrews 10:10), and he is sanctified progressively as he continues to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord (I Thessalonians 5:23; II Peter 3:18).

Section 9. The Doctrine of Hell

Hell is a literal place of everlasting punishment. It was prepared for the Devil and his angels, but all those who reject the salvation offered through Christ will spend their eternity in there (Matthew 25:41, 46; Luke 16:19-31; II Thessalonians 1:7-8). Man will suffer in hell according to the evil he has done in this present world (Luke 12:47-48).

Section 10. The Doctrine of Heaven

Heaven is an actual place where God dwells (Matthew 6:9). The Lord Jesus Christ is presently preparing it for all who have put their faith in Him for salvation (John 14:1-3). Heaven is the place from which Christ descended and to which, after the completion of His earthly ministry, He ascended after His resurrection. He now sits in Heaven at the right hand of God the Father where He makes intercession for the saints. All believers immediately go to God's presence in Heaven upon death (Mark 16:19; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 8:34; II Corinthians 5:8).

Section 11. The Doctrine of the Church

The church that Jesus established is a local, organized, sovereign assembly of regenerated, baptized believers (Acts 2:41), voluntarily united together for the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:19-20. The ordinances of the church are baptism and the Lord's Supper (Matthew 26:26-28; 28:19; I Corinthians 11:23-30). Believer's baptism is by immersion in water under the authority of the local church (Acts 8:36-39). Baptism is an outward expression of the believer's identification with Christ's death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:4-5; I Peter 3:21) and unites that believer to the particular local church in which he is baptized (Acts 2:41, 47). The Lord's Supper is a memorial picturing the broken body of Christ that was sacrificed on the cross and his blood that was shed to pay for man's sin (I Corinthians 11:23-30). Acts 2:41-42 sets a pattern for those eligible to partake of the Lord's Supper (i.e., those who believed, were baptized, and belonged to the local church). The offices of the church are pastor and deacons. The qualifications for these offices are clearly defined in the Scriptures (I Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:6-9; Acts 6:1-7). The church is an autonomous, self-governing, self-propagating, self-supporting organism with Jesus Christ as its Head (Matthew 18:15-17; Acts 13:1-3; 15:23-28; Ephesians 5:23; Colossians 1:18). No hierarchy of individuals or organizations, religious or political, either within or outside of the church, has any authority over the local church (Matthew 22:17-21).

Section 12. The Doctrine of the Last Things

Jesus will receive unto Himself all those who have trusted in His shed blood to wash away their sins (I Thessalonians 4:13-18). After the Rapture, believers will give an account at the Judgment Seat of Christ (Romans 14:10-12; I Corinthians 3:10-15; II Corinthians 5:9-11). Christ's return will be followed by seven years of tribulation (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 13:5), at which time Jesus will return to earth to destroy all wickedness (Revelation 19:21). A thousand year reign of Jesus Christ will follow this event which will terminate with the destruction of Satan and all his evil forces (Revelation 20:4, 10). At the end of the thousand year reign, all lost sinners will be judged at the Great White Throne judgment (Revelation 20:12-15). The new heaven and the new earth will be prepared for God's saints for all eternity (Revelation 21).

Are You Ready for Your Appointment?
PERMANENT NOTICE
Posted by: Independent Baptist Institute | more..
And as it is apponted unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. (Hebrews 9:27-28)

1. Admit you have sinned against a holy God.


For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

Have you ever told a lie? stolen anything? dishonored your parents? lusted in your heart? used God's name in vain? (Exodus 20)

2. Realize the penalty for your sin is an eternal lake of fire.

For the wages of sin is death... (Romans 6:23)

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8)

3. Believe Christ died for you and rose again.

...Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures. (I Corinthians 15:3-4)

4. Repent of your sin and believe in Jesus Christ alone.

...Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:3, 5)

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)

Testifying...repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 20:21)

Call upon the Lord now to save you from eternal torment!!

...Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. (II Corinthians 6:2)

We would love to hear of your decision to trust in Christ for salvation. Please contact us!
