What We Believe


As an Independent Baptist, I am committed to the Biblical doctrines of the Baptist faith as historically held throughout the centuries by Bible believing Christians: This includes the infallibility of the Scriptures as originally given by the inspiration of God and perfectly preserved in the KJV and in the Ang Salita ng Diyos NT as the sole and final authority for English-Tagalog speaking peoples in all matters of faith and practice; the triunity of the One God Who exists as the Persons of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost; the direct Genesis account of the creation and fall of man as opposed to any form of evolution; the Deity, virgin birth, sinlessness, vicarious death and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ; the total depravity of man, his absolute need of regeneration by the Holy Spirit; the all-sufficiency of Christ's death who died for all men, and for our salvation which is received by faith alone, the eternal security and the permanent indwelling of the Holy Spirit in every believer today, the founding of the local, visible church by Christ which was labeled as Anabaptist during persecutions, the personal, imminent, pre-millennial, re-tribulation rapture, and in the return of Christ in glory and power, and a literal heaven and hell.

We teach in the literal interpretation of Scripture, that the KJV is the preserved, inerrant, plenary, and infallible Word of God, that the Hebrew Maseretic Text and the Greek Textus Receptus are the manuscripts God preserved, that the Wescott and Hort family of manuscripts are corrupt, that Christ died for ALL men, that God's election was based on His foreknowledge, that whosoever will may be saved, that Christ established His church before Pentecost, that this church was labeled "Anabaptist" thru persecution, and that "Anabaptists" are the forerunners of many Baptists today. We reject theistic evolution, neo-orthodoxy, higher criticism, Pentecostalism, hyper-Calvinism, charismatic bondage breaking, and easy-believism, and are conservative in worship, separated in standard, Biblical in teaching, missionary in motive, sincere in service, honest in character and peaceful in living.

While I sometimes lose my support to those who have misrepresented themselves, or become misunderstood or gossiped about, I'd rather keep my integrity than gain additional support through questionable methods. Pastors who know me and my ministries will tell you I have been a real help to them, and that I conduct ministry God's way.

Our Missions Philosophy


Concerning missions philosophy, I feel a church planter should plant indigenous and autonomous churches which replicate his sending church on the field, including it's doctrines, Biblical standards and philosophies. I also feel that the longer the National Church permits herself to remain dependent on US supports, the longer it will take for her to become truly autonomous.

This is why our church has paid for their last three building projects, has salaried their own staff, takes care of all their operating expenses, helps area national churches, supports local and foreign missions, and has sent out their own church planter. As a autonomous church, they make their own decisions (self governing), fund their own needs (self-supporting), and finance their own missions program (self-propagating).

Our Philosophy of Ministry
Doing God's Work, God's Way!


I have never purchased a lot in my own name, have never selected a lot to develop without checking with area pastors in advance to ensure our location would not harm them, never received a transfer that was under church discipline or without their former pastor's consent, never went after members of like churches nor solicited them to work for me as paid staff, have never misappropriated my missions support or falsified my reports, still tithe & give to missions or special needs (to my sending church when on furlough and my mission church when on the field), never photographed other works to report them as my own, never photographed kids raising hands for candy to claim it was for salvation, never misrepresented myself in order to gain or keep support, never mislead my supporters in my reports or testimonies, never sought quick conversions for the sake of reporting (easy to do this at the high school where I teach), never competed with national churches, never tried to slander the reputation and work of another pastor, never compromised the Truth for attendance, offerings or support, never joined or associated with divisive fellowships that badmouth other Independent Baptist preachers.

Since a missionary's support is often linked to how many "church plants" he can "claim" - it can be tempting to "lay hands" on Nationals who need help, and then claim them as church plants. Do date, I have had to refuse seven opportunities to claim other church plants, due to unethical ways of conducting ministry.
