We believe and teach that the local, visible assembly of called out believers into a public place of worship and service is the only one found in the New Testament. We do not believe in the invisible or universal church theory. The local New Testament Church has been given the exclusive and solemn charge of carrying out the great commission. The first Church was founded by the Lord Jesus Christ during His own personal ministry. Entrance into the local church is by scriptural baptism. We believe and teach that the Scriptural Church is an independent congregation and is not governed or controlled by an ecclesiastical hierarchy; i.e. the will of the Local Church is final.
