We are a body of Christians who are being saved by obedient acceptance of the Gospel of the Kingdom preached by Jesus, and by his death, burial and resurrection for the remission of our sins.  We are to proclaim this Gospel of the coming Kingdom on earth (Acts 8:12; Mark 1:14-15; Luke 4:43; Luke 8:12).
 

Located in Fayetteville, Georgia

 

A Church Dedicated to Christian Monotheism


For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus...I Tim. 2:5


We meet together each week to diligently study the scriptures so that we may learn the answers to the important questions in life-- 

--Who is God?

--Who is Jesus?

--What is the Holy Spirit?
 
--What is God's purpose and plan for us and the world?

--What happens to us when we die?

--What is "the gospel?"

                                        Our Beliefs...

We believe
that "there is one God, the Father," besides whom there is no God (1 Cor. 8:6). He has existed eternally, with no beginning and no end. He is the Father of Jesus (John 20:17).  He alone created the heavens and earth and sustains them (Isa. 44:24). He answers our prayers, and fills believers with His holy spirit. The Father is "the only true God" (John 17:3).

We believe that the Bible contains the divinely inspired words of God. The combined sixty-six books outline the divine plan that He has laid out for humankind. 

We believe that there is one Lord Jesus Messiah (I Cor. 8:6). He is God's Son and the prophesied Messiah (Matt. 1:1; 16:16) He was born of a virgin, and for that reason he is the Son of God (Luke 1:35). He is the fulfillment of the divine plan of God. He was a unique human being who lived a sinless life. He bore the penalty for our sins and was crucified in our place.  He was raised from the dead by God the Father and thereby became immortal.  After visibly appearing to several of his followers after his resurrection, he ascended to the heavens and sat down at the right hand of God (Psalm 110:1). He currently awaits the "restoration of all things" when he will return to take up rulership over the world (Acts 3:21).

We believe that through the Gospel we can become spiritual brothers and sisters of Jesus, who calls us to be teachers and rulers in his coming Kingdom.  This is the destiny and purpose of all humans who accept the sacrifice of the Messiah for the remission of their sins; believe and obey the Gospel of the Kingdom; who die spiritually with Christ in baptism, and live a spirit-filled life of faith, love, hope, prayer, and walking in the teachings of Messiah.

We believe that after the time of the great tribulation on earth (the "end time") Jesus will return from his position at the right hand of God and will descend to earth with the blast of a trumpet.   At that time all the dead in Christ will rise to meet him, along with those believers who are still alive at the time.  They will be instantly transformed, given new bodies, and will escort Jesus as he makes his way to the earth. A great battle will ensue at that time--where Christ Jesus will vanquish the Anti-christ who will be making war with the saints and the returning Savior.  The Messiah Jesus will triumph, and will be crowned the King of God's Kingdom.

We believe this Kingdom will be on a renewed earth, not in heaven.  It is the reward of those who accept the Gospel of the Kingdom and the death and resurrection of Jesus.  This Kingdom will be a thousand-year era of peace and tranquility, ruled by Jesus with those believers who have been immortalized at his coming.  There will be a reduced number of surviving mortals on earth.  These are among those whom the believers will teach and lead to Christ and the peace of God in the Kingdom.

We believe there is a Devil, namely Satan, who hates God, deceives human beings, and is the "adversary" of Jesus and all things good.  Satan is influencing world events and individuals (Rev. 12:9) and will give power to the Anti-christ to fight against Jesus in the end times.  Once Jesus is triumphant, Satan will be bound for the thousand-year reign of Christ. 

We believe that at death, a person becomes lifeless and without consciousness.  Those who qualify to be in God's Kingdom as "kings and priests" (Rev.5:9-10) will come back to life at the sounding of the last trumpet, when Christ is coming back to earth from his heavenly throne.  This is the "first resurrection" of the saints as spoken of in I Cor.15:23.  At that time, believers will "put on immortality."


We believe that Christ preached this message while he lived and walked on earth, as did Paul and all the apostles.  We believe it is the duty and responsibility of all believers in Christ to not only believe him and his message, but to obey it and announce it to others.

 

We believe that this message, the GOOD NEWS OF GOD'S KINGDOM AND HOW WE CAN BE PART OF IT, IS THE BASIS OF "THE GOSPEL."

    We do NOT believe the following:
    • --that human beings possess inherently an "immortal soul" that lives on after we die;
      --that Christians will be raptured up to heaven before the great tribulation;
      --that the reward of the saved is to go to heaven;
      --that the punishment of the unsaved wicked is eternal torment in hellfire;
      --that the Son of God existed before he began to exist;
    • --that once you are saved you are always saved.

 
 
We meet on Sundays at 10:30 am EST in Fayetteville, Georgia the first 3 Sundays of the month.  On the 4th Sunday of each month, we meet at a home in Mableton (Cobb County) Georgia.  Visitors are welcomed. Our meetings are informal, with a little music, share & prayer time, followed by scriptural teaching and group discussion.

•We receive comments and questions from brothers and sisters around the world who are searching for Biblical truth.  The following is an example:

Hello.  I am 54 and have been a Christian for 36 years.  I have always had doubts about the Trinity, which at one point in my life lead me to study with Jehovah's Witnesses.  I eventually quit because I had a problem with their dependence on their literature, rather than the Bible.  For many years now, I have gone to a non-denominational church, but the nagging doubt about the Trinity and some other doctrines have never left me. 

 I came across your articles and videos online and have been so happy to find that there are others, besides JWs that don't believe in the Trinity.  I have 2 questions: could you give me some reasons that you believe that JWs don't have the truth?  Even though I've had questions about JWs, I still wonder if was wrong about them, I would like to put those doubts to rest.
