PORT JERVIS BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH

We believe the Holy Bible, the Old and New Testaments, with its sixty-six canonical books in the original manuscripts is the verbal, plenary, inerrant and infallible Word of God, entirely without error or contradiction in all matters of which it speaks; we additionally believe that God by His singular care and providence has preserved His Holy Scriptures; and that the Holy Bible is, therefore, the only sufficient final and supreme rule and authority of faith and practice. Psalm 12:6, 7; 119:89, 105, 152, 160; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Luke 16:17; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17; Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:24, 25; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:18, 19.


We believe that God is Triune; that there are three persons in the Godhead, and these three are one God. Matthew 28:19.


We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; that He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. John 1 and Matthew 1.


We believe that the only way to be saved is by faith in the blood sacrifice, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; and to those that become His sheep He says, “I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” John 10:28 and Ephesians 2:8, 9.


We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father; that He ever liveth to make intercession for all that come to God by Him. Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 4:14, and Ephesians 1:20, 21.


We believe that the Church, which is the body of Christ, began with the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost; and that each one who receives the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior is a member of the Body of Christ and indwelt by the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:12-28 and 6:19, 20.


We believe that the Gospel commission is for the Church; that the Lord’s Supper and water Baptism by immersion for believers only are Divine institutions and that Christ desires us to practice them in this age. Matthew 28:18-20 and 1 Corinthians 11:23-29.


We believe that Christ may at any moment return in the air to rapture the Saints, and that a Tribulation period of approximately seven years shall follow; after which He will come to earth with His Saints, and rule for a thousand years. After this the wicked will be judged and cast into the Lake of Fire. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:51-57; Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15-21, 27; 25:46; Revelation 19:11; 20:10-12.


We believe that Satan is a person, the author of the fall, and that he shall be eternally punished. Job 1:6; Genesis 3:1-19; Revelation 20:10.


We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, both the just and the unjust; in the eternal conscious punishment of the lost, and the eternal joy of the saved. Revelation 20:11-15; 22:12-21; 1 Corinthians 15:1-58.
