Our Position on the King James Bible

In a world with hundreds of bible translations, we encourage the use of the King James Bible. We understand that while not everyone may agree with our views, we believe that the KJV is the most accurate translation for English speaking people of today. Below is a short explanation for this stance. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact us.

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the verbally and plenary inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-breathed and, therefore, are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament are the complete and divine revelation of God to Man. We believe that every word of the Holy Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God. We affirm that holy men of God were moved by the Spirit of God to choose and record the exact words in the original writings commonly referred to by the early churches as the Textus Receptus (TR) or the Received Text, and that God through His omnipotent care has preserved His Word to all generations forever (Psalm 12:6-7).

In that God has promised to preserve His Word to all generations forever. We believe the King James Version of the Bible is the only English translation from the preserved Textus Receptus and believe it to be the preserved Word of God for English speaking people. Therefore we are comitted to its use in the public ministry and services of this local church. (Matt. 5:18; Jn. 16:12-17; II Tim. 3:16-17; II Pt. 1:20-21).

In saying this, we would also like to clarify that we reject any beliefs in double inspiration or Ruckmanism.
