Luke 9:18-20

And it happened that while He was praying alone, the disciples were with Him, and He questioned them, saying, "Who do the people say that I am?"  They answered and said, "John the Baptist, and others say Elijah; but others, that one of the prophets of old has risen again."  And He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" And Peter answered and said, "The Christ of God."

Frequently Asked Questions:

Please note: these questions and answers are NOT elements of any sort of creed ... we have no man-made creeds or doctrines, since God's word in the bible is sufficient for salvation. Any additions to or subtractions from God's word are strongly condemned in the bible. The questions and answers listed below are ONLY some of those that people ask about the practices of our church, and not an attempt by this website to completely characterize our congregation of believers. Obviously, any additional emphasis (italics, underlining) in the bible verses to follow are added.


Is it necessary to believe that Jesus is the Christ?

Jesus said –Mark 16:15-16 “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.”

Paul said – Acts 16:30-31 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

Is repentance absolutely necessary?

Jesus said – Luke 13:3-5 “I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”

Paul said – Acts 17:30 "Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent"

Must one confess with ones mouth that Jesus is the Christ?

Jesus said – Matthew 16:13-19 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Paul said – Romans 10:9,10 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Baptism - must one be baptized to be saved?

Jesus said – Mark 16:15,16 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.”

Paul said – Acts 22:16 And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

Peter said – 1 Peter 3:21 There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ

Can a person fall from grace?

Galatians 5:4 You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

There are how many churches?

Jesus said - Matthew 16:18 - I will build My church (only one is indicated)

Will there be a hell, an eternal punishment?

Jesus said - Matthew 25:45, 46 He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.
