We Believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of God chosen men who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit; the Infallible authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
We Believe our God is the one and only true God, the self existent "I Am" Jehovah God; manifested in three persons (the Trinity) - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We Believe Jesus was born of a virgin, was conceived by the Holy Spirit. He was both all man and all God being baptized in the Holy Spirit, and he ministered by the power of the Holy Spirit. He was crucified, died, rose, and ascended into Heaven and obtained redemption for man's sin as He, Himself, led a sinless life and is both Lord and Christ, exalted at the right hand of the Father.
We Believe man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God; but, through Adam's transgression and fall, sin came into the world, and mand received a sin nature. Jesus Christ was manifested to undo the work of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to fellowship with God.
We Believe Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. That godly sorrow that worketh repentance and results in "new birth" is necessary to all men; and when fulfilled, will result in eternal life.
We Believe that water baptism is by immersion as a direct commandment of the Lord and is for believers only. This act is the Christian's identification into Jesus Christ and should be done as an act of obedience.
We Believe the Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing through the believer's life and walk.
We Believe in the Lord's Supper is the symbol of our Lord's suffering, death, and resurrection and is enjoined by all believers "till He comes."
We Believe "His coming is imminent. When He comes the dead in Christ will rise first; then we which remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air..." We believe that this is the blessed hope of the Church.
We Believe the one who physically dies in his sins without Christ is hopeless and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire and therefore has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel. The Lake of Fire is literal. There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the "Book of Life" together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be sent to everlasting punishment in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
We Believe in the Great Commission. That we are to be salt and light to a lost world, and we are to go out to every nation and preach the Gospel until his return.
Meet Our Staff
Church Co Founder
Jim was born in Trenton Michigan at Riverside Hospital and was raised by his grandparents in Huron Township.
While working in Detroit as a young adult his brother and another coworker shared the gospel with him. That's when he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and began attending a baptist church with them. He met his wife Marie and her three year old daughter Danielle at that church. They got married in the spring of 1982 and he adopted Danielle the following year. Two years later their first son James was added to the family.
While attending the church someone gave him a cassette by John MacArthur explaining "verse by verse" biblical exposition. That simple introduction began his lifelong passion for deep biblical truth. Soon after he started feeling the Lord calling him to the ministry.
They decided to start attending a bible church closer to home. During their time there he and his wife added Luke and Tabitha to the family. After spending 22 years serving in various capacities he felt the Lord calling him into pastoral ministry. Christian Bible Church held it's first service in the Huron High School band room on August 3rd 2008. In 2009 the church relocated to Trenton Michigan where they have been serving the community ever since.
