“Standing on the promises”
Kingaroy Christian fellowship was established on the 30th of August 2015 as a result of Gods word the King James Bible.
This is a brief scriptural explanation of faith in the King James Bible and the doctrines concerning Our Saviour, the Gospel, the Believer and the church.
Our worship is centred on the hymns of the faith, as we are Biblical and Baptistic in practise and observing the two ordinances given to the local church: Baptism and the Lords supper.
Many religions and people around the world believe in God, but the Bible is specific not generic, that Jesus Christ was God manifest in the flesh John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John the Baptist introduced Jesus Christ as the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
For Jesus Christ to be our Saviour, it took his death burial and resurrection to provide us a substitutionary atonement for Adams fallen race Romans 5:11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement, Romans 5:8 God comendeth his love towards us, in that, that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
In other words, God did not give us a religion to saves us by our works and self righteousness but a Saviour. 2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 1 John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. ( The word propitiation means to appease, or take care of, which was taken care of at the cross. Romans 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 1 John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
All we need to do is come to God and put our faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ and acknowledge that he died for your sins.
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.
The Gospel is found in: 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
Paul gives us the Gospel, the good news concerning the finished work of Christ and makes it clear that the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
The Gospel is key and centre to the believers justification, Romans 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
Revelation 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Baptism, or often is referred to as believers baptism, which simply is a step of obedience to openly declare the believers faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. 1 Peter 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus.
This shews a good conscience toward God which, Romans 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: ( Water baptism is an ordinance given to the local church so the believer can openly declare their faith and trust in Jesus Christ their Saviour, this however is not to be confused with the Baptism of the Holy Ghost as found in 1 Corinthians 12:13 )
When we meet together as believers in our local church it is for the express purpose of worship and fellowship with like minded believers. This is when the manifestation of the body of Christ can be seen, where Jesus Christ has the preeminence: Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the first born from the dead: that in things he might have the preeminence.
We are a local church, and we look-forward to the fact that God will take out the church, the promise given to all born again believers, before the Great Tribulation, a time that Jesus referred to in Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. It is important to understand that anyone can be part of the local church, but to be part of the body of Christ which is the church is given to the believer at salvation. Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptised into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

1 Corinthians 10:32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:
We believe that the King James Bible is the inherent word of God, preserved without error, translated into english for the english speaking people a v1611.
We hold to the fact that the english is superior to the Greek, as the result of the King James Bible, the textus receptus, the first complete greek new testament came about some thirty years later. ( Because we believe the English we believe what the Bible teaches as our final authority.)
