Dear Friend;
  I would like to preface the remainder of the content of this website by offering these simple truths.   No body of men has ever existed, outside of God's self-appointed apostles and holy prophets, who are empowered and authorized by God Himself to lay the foundation for the church of Jesus Christ.  Many false doctrines have arisen since the foundation of the church was laid by the apostles in the early years of the newborn Christian movement.  Any confidence placed in subsequent bodies of so-called Christian leaders is ill-placed and foolish.   While the messages being preached by many churches and ministers may be based in sincerity, they are sincerely wrong.  We have Scripture and are without excuse for failing to find truth for ourselves, rather than simply relying upon some human organization or individual to spoon feed it to us.  "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."   II TIM. 2:15   Tradition cannot save, only truth!

1 Corinthians 12:27-28
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

Ephesians 3:4-5
4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;

Ephesians 2:19-20
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

2 Peter 3:1-2
1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

The apostles gave clear warnings that some would arise from within the church itself who would seek to pollute and dilute the true doctrine of God as delivered by the apostles themselves. Peter, Paul, Jude, and John each gave warnings concerning this matter:

2 Peter 2:1-2 (The Apostle Peter is speaking/writing)
1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

1 John 4:1 (The Apostle John is speaking/writing)
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Jude 1:3-4 (The Apostle Jude is speaking/writing)
3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Acts 20:29-31 (The Apostle Paul is speaking/writing)
29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. 31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

The Lord Himself issued this clarion warning:
Matthew 7:15-20
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

  From the Nicene Council to the Vatican II, no human beings have ever possessed the right or responsibility to establish or change the doctrine or practices of God's one true church.  Man-made doctrine, dogmas, and traditions must be weighed in light of the Apostle's clear teaching and any contradictions must be renounced and abandoned.

Matthew 15:7-9
7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
