We are a group of Christians striving to follow the teachings in the Bible and the Bible only.  

Jesus said, “....upon this rock I will build my church” (Matthew 16:18). In Jesus’ statement, there are several observations we wish to note: (1) Jesus Christ would be the One to build this church, (2) The church that Jesus promised to build belongs to Him, and (3) Also, it is very significant that Jesus promised to build one church and one church only.

We believe that "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and that our Lord himself said, “You shall know the truth...” (John 8:32). He then went on to teach that the knowledge of truth reveals the path that will free us from the burden of our sin.
