Thanks for the link, brother! They look like great folks, I loved the Statement of Faith - so many Bible references!
I agreed with everything except the doctrine of the church. I think they're briders, see underlined portions.
The Scriptures teach that the “church” is a local (Act 8:1, 9:31, 13:1, 15:4; Gal 1:2)(99 of 114 NT
references is specifically local in context, the other 15 are generically local), visible (2Co 1:1,15; 1Th 3:10), assembly of born again, baptized believers (Act 2:41, 8:12) to carry out the Lord’s work (Mt 28:19,20); that the widely accepted view that the church is “all the saved” (i.e. universal church) is to be wholly rejected
(Act 8:1, 9:31, 13:1, 15:41; Gal 1:2); that the beginning of the church was with the baptism of Jesus Christ and the calling of His disciples, and not at Pentecost as most wrongly assume
(Jn 1:35; Act 1:22; Mt 16:18; Act 2:41; Mk 1:1-4; Mt 23:8; Jn 10:11,14, 13:29; Mt 26:26-28); that the church is typified
as a body (Col 1:18; 1Co 12:12-27), a building (Mt16:1; Eph 1:20-22), and a bride (Eph 5:25-27; 2Co 11:2; Jn 3:29; Ro 7:4; Hb 12:22; Rv 19:7-9); and that its mission is to evangelize the world, baptize believers into its membership
, teach the whole counsel of God, sustain the Truth, provide Godly fellowship for its members, and, chiefly, to glorify God (Mt 28:19,20; Mk 16:15; Act 1:8; 2Ti 2:2; Act 2:42; 1Ti 3:15; Eph 3:21).
