believe that Salvation is through Jesus Christ. Jesus
was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross as payment for our sins, and rose from the dead on the third
day. The only way a person can go to Heaven when he dies is to first place his faith in the payment that Jesus Christ provided
with His shed blood on the cross, repent of sin and ask Jesus to come into his heart and save him. 1 Corinthians 1:18 (KJV); 1 Timothy 2:4 (KJV); Acts 4:12 (KJV); Acts 16:30-31 (KJV);
Eph. 2:8-9 (KJV)
believe in one God, Who is a personal and eternal Spirit, perfect and unchangeable
in all His Attributes. This one God eternally exists in three Persons, impossible of division but capable of distinction as
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; All having precisely the same homage, confidence, and obedience. Deut. 6:4 (KJV); John
4:24 (KJV); Psalm 90:1-2 (KJV); James 1:17 (KJV); Matthew 3:16-17 (KJV); Matthew 28:19 (KJV)
a. We believe that God, the
Holy Spirit, is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and, that He is the Supernatural
Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption.
(John 16:8-11 (KJV); 2 Corinthians 3:6 (KJV); 1 Corinthians 12:12-14 (KJV); Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14 (KJV)
b. We believe that He is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into all truth;
and, that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit. (John 16:13 (KJV); 1 John 2:20,27 (KJV);
Ephesians 5:18 (KJV)
believe in Jesus Christ, God the Son born of the virgin Mary, Who atoned
for sin once for all by His sacrifice of Himself on the cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension into
Heaven, and in His present life there as High Priest and Advocate in our behalf. John 1:1 (KJV); Matthew 1:18-25 (KJV);
Heb. 9:26-28 (KJV); Luke 24:4-7 (KJV); Luke 24:36-40 (KJV); Acts 1:9-10 (KJV); Heb. 5:1-10 (KJV); I John 2:1-2 (KJV); Heb.
We believe both Old and New Testaments, all 66 Books, are "God Breathed", the Infallible Word
of God. We believe the Bible is what it claims to be: the Word of God. We take instruction
from the Bible literally; we believe what the Bible is actually saying, not that It is an allegory or a fable.
We take instruction from the Bible in the areas of life and faith and go to it for the answers to life. In a day when opinion
polls and media agendas steer our social conscience, we believe that we should first seek God's opinion on any subject
before forming our own. We Believe The King James Bible is the Word of God. We hold this belief because "interpretations"
of the Bible are just that: interpretations. The King James Bible is not an interpretation, but rather a "transliteration"
of Scripture. We hold that while translations of the Bible may be "good commentary" they do not constitute the Bible.
We believe the King James is the Word of God because it presents the grammatical historical Bible through
transliteration, a systematic letter by letter, word by word, verse by verse, chapter by chapter, book by book rendering that
better removes man's thoughts or ideas and lets the Scriptures interpret Themselves through and by the Holy Spirit. II Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV); II Peter 1:19-21 (KJV)
(While we believe the King James is the Bible, we
do not break fellowship with other believers who use, for instance, the New King James, and etc. We can disagree without being
We believe the Church should be the moral conscience
of a community. Since God created civil governments, the church should work hard to cooperate with and work together with
our elected officials and civil servants. The church should not be silent on moral issues that have become political issues:
abortion, homosexuality, same sex marriage and etc. LRW Ministries cannot support any one political candidate, (according
to the government), who runs for public office, however, we can offer comparisons of candidates views, opinions and the like.
We believe a church should be filled, not with spectators, but participants. We believe a church should be
described as a spiritual hospital where people come for spiritual healing, not a spiritual museum where the relics of "Pharisee-ism"
are displayed. As Christians we should have a first-class way of doing things. We are to be careful stewards of God's
money. We believe God's business is to be carried out by God's people through the local Bible believing church. God's
business is the greatest business in the world. Mark 16:15 (KJV);
believe the only requirements for church membership are salvation and baptism by immersion. We believe a person may join a
church from another church of like faith by transfer of letter, or by giving testimony of their salvation and their
baptism by immersion and thereby join by Christian experience. Romans 3:23 (KJV); Romans 6:23 (KJV); Romans 10:9-11 (KJV);
Acts 2:41 (KJV)
believe once a person is saved by putting his faith in Jesus, we are commanded to be baptized by immersion
to show to others what took place when we trusted Christ; we do this in obedience, not to save us but to show that we have
been saved. Just as we are commanded of God to be baptized we are to also participate in the Lord's Supper on a regular
basis to remember the payment Jesus made for us and to express our love to Him for that payment. The Lord's Supper is
not observed in order to take us to Heaven but to thank Jesus for His sacrifice. Baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances
of the local church not sacraments. Matthew 26:26 (KJV); Matthew
28:19-20 (KJV); Acts 8:5 (KJV); Acts 8:8 (KJV); Acts 8:12 (KJV); Acts 8:27-39 (KJV);
I Corinthians 11:23-28 (KJV)
believe that it is our responsibility as Christians, as outlined in the Bible,
to spread the Gospel to our area, nation, and world. Mark 16:15 (KJV),
"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
Matthew 28:19-20 (KJV), "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded
you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
We believe the family unit should be strong and healthy. The first institution God made on earth was
the family. Programs in the church are to be geared to help build strong families. A Bible believing church is to provide
fellowship, friendship, and support services for the family and indivduals. A church should strive to be protective of children.
A church should provide education in a Christian oriented atmosphere for children of its members. Curriculum for Christian
education should be just that: Christian, Christ Centered. We believe if a church is unable to provide a Christian Education
for the children of its members then that church should make its members aware of Christian Education offered in its community
through another Bible believing church. Gen. 2:18-25 (KJV); Gen. 3:16-20 (KJV); Psalms 127:3 (KJV); Psalms 103:17
(KJV); Proverbs 22:6 (KJV); Proverbs 4:1 (KJV); Proverbs 17:6 (KJV)
CHRISTIAN BEHAVIOR: SEPARATION
We believe Christians should talk, behave, live, and dress like a citizen of Heaven. The basis
for these standards is found in the Bible. We make no apology for our conservative beliefs in many areas, including music,
social issues, dress, and behavior. Romans 12:1-2 (KJV); 2 Cor.
The above constitutes
basic beliefs of LRW MINISTRIES. We stand on the Bible.
Further, we do not support in any way the ecumenical movement, World Council of Churches or any other group that
deviates from the basic fundamentals of Christianity.
In addition, we do not apologize for our stand against abortion. We believe that life begins at conception. Abortion
in our view is murder under any circumstance including birth defects, rape, incest, the mental well being of the mother, etc.
and etc. Abortion for any reason is an excuse for murder (NOTE: "An excuse is a skin of a reason stuffed with a lie!")
It is our belief that abortion should not be considered a political issue,
but a moral one. In the Word of God taking of an innocent life is an abomination. The Lord
hates the shedding of innocent blood! (Proverbs 6:16-17 "These six things
doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: (17) A proud
look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood," Genesis 9:6 "Whoso
sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man." )
16:31 "....BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED, AND
