A Summary Doctrinal Statement

The Book

We believe the King James Bible to be Read More...a faithful translation of the inspired Word of God, preserving it for the English speaking world. We also recognize that the underlying original language texts are valuable as aids in interpretation and application. ...Read Less

The Blood

We believe the shed blood of Christ is Read More...the only basis of our redemption. It is the all sufficient and exclusive provision for the sins of the world (Hebrews 9:12, 22)....Read Less

The Blessed Hope

We believe that Christ is comingRead More... back to the earth, at the end of the Seven Year Tribulation Period, to establish His kingdom on earth (The Revelation 19, 20). But first, He shall come into the air above, just prior to that Tribulation Period, to catch away His Bride, the Church, in the event we term, "The Rapture" (I Thessalonians 4:13-17), also called the "Blessed Hope" (Titus 2:13). ...Read Less

Biblical Separation

We believe that a Christian has aRead More... perfect standing before God, in Christ, and should progressively bring his conduct into conformity to that honorable position (I Peter 1:14-16). Biblical separation, whether personal, or ecclesiastical, must not be defined by personal preferences, but by biblical commands and principles. ...Read Less

GOD PROMISED IT


We speak much in these dissertations concerning the future of the nation of Israel. However, there are many today who have joined the segment of theologians who deny for Israel the blessings of God.

Many well known radio/TV preachers/Bible teachers, and college founders/presidents are found within their ranks. Among those who have the ear of America, bible literalists are relatively few in number, and growing more scarce.

Some are "Preterists." [1] They believe that the entire Book of The Revelation, the last Book of the New Testament, was fulfilled in the current events of John’s day.

This would lead to the modern day development of "Replacement Theology." This is the position that takes God’s promises to Israel, away from that nation, and ascribes them to the Church. Of course, they must then be spiritualized, and/or allegorized.

I would encourage you to do three things:

First, turn in your Bible to Genesis 12:1 – 3, and itemize, in verses two and three, the seven promises of God to Abram. (You can easily discern them by simply taking the passage apart, phrase by phrase, looking at that which God promises Abram He will do.)

The promises are unconditional, and are part of the Abrahamic Covenant. This leads to the second suggestion—

If you will do the above, then a third task is necessitated. It is to ask your Pastor, favorite radio/TV preacher/teacher — before you attend another service, or spend an additional penny of support, if such holds to the above exposed erroneous positions, or to the truth, i.e. that Israel is still the Apple of God’s Eye, Deuteronomy 32:10b and that God’s promises to Abram, Isaac and Jacob continue in effect, and will be literally fulfilled.
