Our statement of faith:
We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God. We believe that all
of mankind has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, with the
exception of one man, Jesus Christ.
King James Version Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
King James Version Hebrews 4: 14-15
14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
We believe that God sent His Son into the world to buy and purchase our salvation by giving his life on the Cross and was raised to life again on the third day.
King James Version John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
We believe in the Triune God, God
the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.
God has told us to make a joyful noise.

Gospel quartet music makes a joyful noise when those four voices blend together. Yes, this music is entertaining, it is also spiritually uplifting. You have a double blessing. You get spiritually blessed and you get entertained and the same time.Scripture taken from the NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE®, Copyright © 1960,1962,1963,1968,1971,1972,1973,1975,1977,1995 by The Lockman Foundation.
