what we believe

The Holy scriptures

We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God.  We also believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are designed for our practical instruction in faith and conduct.  2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalms 19:7; Matthew 5:18

the godhead

We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – and these three are one God.  Deuteronomy 6:4; Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 6:8; Ephesians 4:4-6; Matthew 28:19

god the father

We believe that God the Father possesses all attributes pertaining to deity.  The Father loved the world, sent His Son, punished His Son for our sins, raised Christ from the dead, elects and chooses, draws men to Jesus, adopts believers in Christ as His very own children therefore becoming their heavenly Father.  Ephesians 1:3, 3:14-15; James 1:17; John 3:16, 6:44; Isaiah 53:4-5; Romans 8:29, 9:11; Galatians 4:5,6

person of jesus christ

We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, came into the world that He might manifest God to men, fulfill prophecy, and become the Redeemer of a lost world.  To this end He was born of the Virgin Mary, received a human body and a sinless human nature without ceasing to be God.  Luke 1:30-35; John 1:1, 14, 18; Hebrews 4:15; Philippians 2:5-11
We believe that Jesus is the Head over all things to the church which is His body, and He does not cease to intercede and be an advocate for the saved.  Ephesians 1:22-23; 1 Timothy 2; Hebrews 7:25; 1 John 2:1-2

work of jesus christ

We believe that in infinite love for the lost, He voluntarily accepted His Father’s will and became the divinely provided sacrificial Lamb of God and took away the sins of the world.  John 1:29; Romans 3:25-31; 2 Corinthians 5:14; Hebrews 10:5-14; 1 John 2:2
We believe that He victoriously rose bodily from the dead defeating Satan, Hell, and death.  Upon ascending back to Heaven with all authority, Jesus was accepted by His Father and is now seated on His right hand as a soon coming King. Matthew 28:6; John 20:20; 1 Corinthians 15:55-57; Colossians 2:13-16, 3:1; Revelation 19:11-16 

god the holy spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead, being co-equal to the Father and Son in all attributes pertaining to deity.  Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 3:18
We believe that in the work of redemption He justifies, washes, and sanctifies sinners in cooperation with the Son; He regenerates unbelievers and indwells them at the moment of salvation, thus baptizing them into the body of Christ and sealing them until the final day of redemption. 1 Corinthians 6:11; Titus 3:5; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 4:30
We believe that through the Holy Spirit, God provides every believer power to live the Christian life.  We further believe that every Christian receives grace from God in the form of a spiritual gift, which enables him/her to function as a contributing member of the body of Christ.  Romans 8:9-11; Galatians 5:16-25; Romans 12:6; 1 Corinthians 12:7; Ephesians 4:7-13

personality of satan

We believe that Satan, the devil, is the prince of demons and is declared adversary of God and man.  However, when the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, He limited the power of Satan and guaranteed the ultimate triumph of God and His people.  Ephesians 2:2; 1 Peter 5:8; Revelation 20:10; Colossians 2:13-15

the church

We believe all who are united to the risen and ascended Son of God are members of the Church, which is the body of Christ.  1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Acts 2:42-47
We believe that the explicit message of our Lord Jesus Christ to those whom He has saved is to make Christ known to the whole world and that this is the purpose of the Church through the individuals within it.  Matthew 28:18-19; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:11-21
We believe that local churches, such as Christ the King Bible Fellowship Church, gather together for practical instruction in the Scriptures, for fellowship with God and with other believers, and for corporate witness to the unsaved world.  Our common spiritual goal is to grow toward Christ’s likeness.  Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:5; Ephesians 4:13-16 

the rapture & second coming of jesus christ

We believe that a future period of great tribulation on the earth will be climaxed by the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth as He went in person in the clouds with power and great glory to establish His millennial kingdom.  But prior to this tribulation, we believe there will be the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the air to receive unto Himself into Heaven both His own who are alive and remain until His coming and also all who have died in Christ Jesus.  1 Thessalonians 4:13 -17; Zechariah 14:4-11; Revelation 3:10

eternal state

We believe that at death, the spirits and souls of those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation pass immediately into His presence and there remain in conscious bliss until the resurrection of the glorified body when Christ comes for His own, whereupon soul and body reunited shall be associated with Him forever in glory.  All those who rejected Jesus Christ will eternally be separated from God to endure His eternal wrath forever.  2 Corinthians 5:8; Revelation 20:11-15, 21:1-27; 2 Thessalonians 4:13-18

responsibility of leaders

We believe that God appoints leaders (Elders and Deacons) to guide His church in the understanding and application of Holy Scripture.  It is their responsibility to be examples of godliness as they see to the spiritual well-being and protection of the flock over which God has given them charge.  Acts 6:1-8; Acts 20:28; Hebrews 13:17; 1 Peter 5:1-3

church ordinances

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ instituted the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper to be observed by all believers until His return.  Matthew 28;19; Luke 22:19-20; Acts 10:47-48


We believe that because God our Creator established marriage as a sacred institution between one man and one woman, the idea that marriage is a covenant only between one man and one woman has been the traditional definition of marriage for all of human history (“Traditional Definition of Marriage”).  Because of the longstanding importance of the Traditional Definition of Marriage to humans and their relationships and communities, and, most importantly, the fact that God has ordained that marriage be between one man and one woman, as clearly conveyed in God’s inerrant Scriptures.  For example, in Matthew 19:4-6 where, in speaking about marriage, Jesus referred to the fact that “he made them at the beginning made them male and female,” the Church hereby creates this policy, which shall be known as the “Marriage Policy.”
We believe that the ordinance of baptism in most practical cases is the immersion of the believer in water as it sets forth the essential facts in redemption; the death and resurrection of Christ and is essential to newness of life.  Romans 6:4; Acts 8:26-39
We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a privilege afforded to all believers in commemoration of our Lord’s death until He comes.  1 Corinthians 11:23-28
