BAPTISM: For whatever motivation they may have to try to deny its place in the scheme of redemption; those who would argue against baptism and its proper form and administration, can only find themselves with but a single choice to make: to follow scripture or not.  Thus, all must accept that salvation is not outside of what is found in God’s Word. (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16)

CONFESSING: Anyone not willing to admit and share with others his belief in what he has heard about God, His Word, and His church; has neither truly heard nor believed; and, is in fact; incapable of progressing any further towards becoming a child of God. Without confession we will never be partakers of any of the heavenly benefits in Christ. (Matt. 11:32-33)
REPENTING: Repentance is the proof of the change of heart which is a vital element in the process of salvation. What you and I think or say about our commitment to Christ may have their places, but; only godly sorrow brings about the actual, active repentance necessary for salvation. Our actions reveal our hearts. (2 Corinthians 7:10)
HEARING: Unless an individual who is in a capable, accountable state comes in contact with God’s Word in a form which they can understand; salvation cannot occur. Hearing is the starting point from which the plan of salvation proceeds. Thus is the sending forth preachers of the word necessitated. (Rom. 10:14-15)

OUR GOAL

We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom,

so that we may present every man complete in Christ. ~ Colossians 1:28


BELIEVING: Without its acceptance, even the Word of God is without power to save. Just as surely as Satan flees from the single, simple word “no”; so too, will God not force an obedient faith upon anyone. Once again, we find the necessity of the word being preached. (Romans 10:17)
