As the direct result of our rejoicing for the merciful and underserved forgiveness of our personal sins, we as a church body accept as our “Reasonable Service”, (Romans 12:1-2) our responsibility to be ambassadors for Christ.
II Corinthians 5:19-20
We are active therefore in ministries that build up the saints of God and reach out with the Gospel message to those who do not, as yet, know the joy of sins forgiven and the present confidence of a home in Heaven. I John 5:13 In these regards, regular church services are held and other outreach ministries are conducted.

"Your Eternity Choice Gospel Ministries", founded in the Spring of 2020, is the worldwide, Soul Winning, and Christian Growth arm of Rossville Bible Church. This ministry is detailed and explained in YourEternityChoice.com. There Our Burden, Our Mission, Our Strategy, About Us, Help Us, Resources, Ministry Tools, and Donation information and access is presented.
We desire, in each of our Sunday Services and outreach ministries, to obey the truth of Jude 22...”And of some have compassion making a difference.”
Rossville Bible Church is an old time Gospel Ministry that uses only the King James Bible in all phases of service.
We sing and use Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs accompanied mostly by piano and organ rather than a Praise Team and Praise Band and Contemporary Christian Music.
Salvation By Grace
We believe that eternal salvation is gained only by the grace of God through individual faith in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary. We believe that eternal salvation is not of ourselves or of our religious works, lest any man should boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 11:5-6
Whosoever Will May Come
We believe that whosoever will, may come to the Lord Jesus for the forgiveness of sin and eternal life.
Romans 10:13, Rev. 22:17, II Peter 3:9
Christ’s Death and Shed Blood and Bodily Resurrection
We believe that His substitutionary death and shed blood was for the sins of each one and for the whole world. I John 2:2 We believe that after 3 days and 3 nights following His death on the cross, He rose again bodily from the tomb and triumphed over sin, death, hell, and the grave in victory as our risen Lord! Matthew 28:6
Repentance and Assurance of Salvation
We believe that repentance toward God and Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ is necessary for Biblical Salvation. Acts 20:21 We believe in a know so salvation as the gift of God, and that every born again believer knows When they were saved, Where they were saved and Who or What was influential in their coming to know the Lord as their personal Saviour from sin.
I John 5:11-13
Godly Living of the Believer
We believe that those who name the name of Christ must be careful to maintain good works in thanksgiving for salvation so full and free, and as a testimony of God’s saving grace in their lives. Titus 3:8 We additionally believe that we must abstain from fleshly lusts that war against the soul, I Peter 2:11 and to keep ourselves unspotted from the world, James 1:27 and unbiblical alliances and activities in our lives and Christian service. II Corinthians 6:14-7:1
The Believer’s Blessed Hope
We believe that the next great event on God’s timetable is the blessed hope and glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ. Titus 2:13
We believe that the Lord himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. I Thessalonians 4:13-18. Because of the words “caught up”, in the Scripture, the word rapture is used to explain the first phase of the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. I Thessalonians 4:17 We believe that this Blessed Hope of the believer is of great encouragement, confidence, and direction as we serve the Lord in our lives.
I Thessalonians 4:18 I John 2:28
Rightly Dividing The Word of Truth
We seek to rightly divide the Word of Truth through comparing Scripture with Scripture, I Corinthians 2:11 and Dispensational Teaching, Ephesians 3:2 which proclaims that this old world is getting worse and worse, and soon, in God's timetable, it will get so bad that the Lord Jesus will come back to this sin cursed earth in power and great glory to judge and make war, in His end-time work against the Gentile world powers, the Satanic Trinity, and those who reject God's way! I Timothy 3
We believe that someday in God’s timetable, He will take the believer out of this world and begin a process of divine judgment such as this world has never witnessed. We believe that this worldwide judgement of Almighty God will begin intently with The 7 Year Tribulation Period, followed by the Revelation Phase of The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus, the Battle of Armageddon, the Great White Throne Judgement for the unsaved, and many other end time events of God’s judgment and correction and rule on this earth. Revelation 1:19
