Who we are

We are a group of Christians in Northern Ireland whose aim is to promote the Truth of God’s Word as opposed to the vain traditions of men. We believe that much of what is being taught in our churches today has no foundation in the Holy Scriptures, but is based rather on traditions inherited from pagan religion and Greek philosophy. On this site we seek to promote truthful teaching on such subjects as the soul, death and resurrection, heaven and hell, the Kingdom and the Church and others. We hope you will find this site interesting and enlightening and look forward to your feedback

Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible in its original writings to be the infallible, inerrant, inspired word of God.
  • We believe in God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Three persons in one Godhead.
  • We believe that God is the only being in the universe who has immortality, believers will not receive it until Christ returns.
  • We believe in the incarnation of Jesus Christ, that he became man yet never ceased to be God.
  • We believe in his sinless spotless life as he lived and walked among men.
  • We believe in his sin atoning death on the cross of Calvary, that it was sacrificial, 
    substitutionary, sufficient and satisfactory.
  • We believe in his bodily resurrection, in his ascension and glorification.
  • We believe in eternal salvation, through Christ alone, through grace alone through faith alone.
  • We believe that christ will return as he said and will establish his long promised, prophesied Kingdom and that he will reign on this earth for 1000 years ruling with a rod of iron.
  • We believe that God will create new heavens and a new earth and that Christ will be the pre eminent figure ruling from the new Jereusalem, of which he is the light, and will reign on through the ages that are to come.
  • We believe that God has a plan and purpose for his ancient people Israel, which he called out from among the nations to be his own peculiar treasure. Though they rejected him when he came at first they were re-offered the opportunity to repent and have the Kingdom set up through the Acts period. A remnant who will pass through the time of Jacob’s trouble will, at Christ’s return become the head and not the tail of the nations.
  • We believe that man is a living soul (being) and not that he has a living soul (being).
  • We believe that all the deceased are dead and await resurrection. Those who are his will be raised at his coming,, and those who are not will be raised to stand before the Great White Throne judgement.
  • We believe that all Christ rejecters will have their part in the lake of fire, this is not hell but the final destiny (the second death) of all unbelievers.

“And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee
“To-day shalt thou be with m
e in paradise”.


The question which is asked is this, did the thief go to “paradise” that day to be with Christ? Almost without a moments hesitation many Christians would answer “yes” but is that indeed what happened? Let us look carefully at the facts. The thief’s request was “Lord remember me when thou comest into Thy kingdom”. The thief was no doubt an Israelite and as such knew well the promises of the Old Testament regarding the Messiah and the kingdom He would reign over. He had read the superscription written over the Saviour’s head “This is Jesus of Nazareth the king of the Jews”. He had watched the Lord and listened to His words and realized He was indeed the King. The thief did not ask to be taken to heaven to be with the Lord when he died that day but for Christ to remember him when he came into His kingdom. Our Lord’s answer to him was regarding that day when His kingdom will be set up on earth  otherwise it had no relevance. He promised the thief that he would be part of it when it would come. Later, after His resurrection the Lord told Mary “I am not yet ascended to my Father; but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and to My God, and your God”. Surely these plain words of scripture are clear, Jesus had not at that point ascended into heaven. The problem lies with the comma and where the translators have placed it in the verse. Greek scholars inform us that in the original greek there are no punctuation marks so it was at the discretion of the translators where they placed it. The words of Christ to the thief are easily understood when we recognize this important fact, He simply told him “I tell you today you will be with me in paradise”. The word “paradise” has the definite article and should read “The paradise”, not referring to heaven at all but the paradise of the kingdom set up on earth. Someone is sure to say that’s what the Jehovah Witnesses teach about this verse. We are not interested in what JW’S say and indeed recognize them as a false cult but we cannot change the true meaning of the verse just to get one over on them. The readers will see as we deal with other texts that it would have been scripturally impossible for the thief to go to heaven that day anyhow, but more on that later.
