We are a BIBLE BELIEVING, BIBLE TEACHING, BIBLE PREACHING church. We use the King James Bible, with no apology. We have an end-of-month “pot-faith” felowship where we gather together and enjoy good fellowship and good preaching. We also have a once a month chalk-talk presentation, where Bro. Don Preaches and his wife Candyce draws on a 4ft x 4ft canvas. If you visit us, you may come as a visitor, but you will leave as family. Whether or not you join our church or not isn’t the important thing. The most important thing is that you accept Jesus Christ as your SAVIOUR!
Brother Don was born and raised in the Cooter area and graduated from Cooter High School in 1996. He and Candyce have been married for 11 years and currently have 5 children. Bro Don surrendered to preach in 2004 and he and his family have been serving the Lord ever since. They have a family farm, which Bro Don has been operating for 18 years.

What We Believe…And you should too!


We believe the sixty-six books of the King James Version, nothing added or deleted, constitute the whole of Scripture “given by inspiration of God” to English speaking people.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth forever. Psalm 119:160

see also 2 Peter 1:20-21


We believe in one triune God, creator of all that is, existing in the Godhead, in perfection, before and independent of His creation. He is entire goodness, benevolent, all wise, and infinite in His attributes (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; John 14:10, 26).

We believe Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin and walked this earth in human flesh, is the creator of Heaven and earth, (John 1:1-3) Christ, being the eternal God came to this earth and gave up his life on the cross of calvary for the sins of the world (Is. 7:14; 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2, 14; 2 Cor. 5:19-21; Gal. 4:4-5; Phil. 2:5-8). He was raised from the dead on the third day in order to justify all who would be saved (Acts 2:18-36; Rom. 3:24-25; 1 Peter 2:24; Eph. 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3-5). He is presently seated on the right hand of the Father, and will bodily, visibly return to the earth for his own (Acts 1:9-10; Heb. 9:24; 7:25; Rom. 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2). One day he will reign and rule on this earth for 1,000 years in a literal physical kingdom (revelation 20)

We believe the Holy Spirit shares all the attributes of the Father and Son. The earthly ministry of the Holy Spirit is to manifest the Son to mankind, and to minister God’s presence to the world (John 16:8-11; Rom. 8:9, Rom. 12:3-8; 1 Cor. 12: 4-11, 12-14, 28; 2 Cor. 3:6; Eph. 1:13-14, 17-18; Eph. 4:7-12; Eph. 5:18; 1 John 2:20, 27).


We believe that man was created in the span of a twenty-four hour period. In the eating of the tree, the willful and direct disobedience to God resulted in legal estrangement from God and precipitated the curse of death on Adam and all his descendants. All men are born under the curse and totally estranged from God. When a descendant of Adam reaches a level of moral understanding (sometime in his youth) he becomes fully, personally accountable to God and has sin imputed to him, resulting in the peril of eternal damnation. No man is capable of rectifying this state of estrangement from God. Apart from the free gift of God through the substitutionary work of Christ there is no hope of salvation (Rom. 1-3).

Salvation is FREE to all, through the innocent, shed blood of Jesus Christ.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3-9

There is Salvation in no other name than JESUS CHRIST…He is the only way!

For by grace you are saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

(see also Acts 4:12 and John 14:6)

Those who have received Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour are eternally secure in HIM.

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. John 10:28

(see also Ephesians 4:30 and Ephesians 1:12-14)

Upon death, those without Christ will immediately enter into a literal, burning, fiery HELL.

Then shall he say unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: Matthew 25:41

(see also Luke 25:41)

Man is a SINNER

Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

There is a PRICE for our sin – ETERNAL DEATH IN HELL

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

2 Thessalonians 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

JESUS paid the PRICE by dying on the cross and shedding his INNOCENT blood. Christ wad buried and ROSE AGAIN!

Romans 5:5 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

1 Timothy 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

By FAITH in Jesus Christ ALONE, you can be SAVED! Salvation is NOT found in a religion or good works, but in Person… The LORD JESUS CHRIST!

John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

1 Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Here is How You Call Upon The Lord

Do you admit you are a guilty sinner, under the condemnation of God’s law, deserving hell?

Do you believe that Jesus is God’s son who died upon the cross, sacrificing his precious blood for your sins?

Do you believe that Jesus was buried and three days later rose again?

If you would like to be saved, simply come in your heart as a guilty sinner and BELIEVE upon the Lord Jesus Christ.

Maybe you would feel more comfortable praying the sinners prayer, as did the publican…”And the publican standing afar off, would not lift up his eyes unto Heaven, but somte upon his breast, saying, God be merciful unto me a sinner.”

Dear Jesus,

I admit to you that I am a sinner deserving of Hell. I believe that you are God’s son, that you died, were buried and rose again. Please forgive me of my sins and take me to heaven when I die. I believe on you alone, apart from all self-righteous works and religion, as my saviour. Thank You!!! Amen

Just as you were born physically to your parents, so you were born into the family of God when you recieved Jesus! Please understand that you were not saved because you said a prayer…but because you believed on the Lord Jesus Christ.

It’s not what you’re doing that gets you to Heaven, it’s where you’re looking. (Jesus Christ!)
