This doctrinal statement is not an endeavor to make Scripture align with a preconceived system of belief. Rather, this is an endeavor to summarize the teachings of the Bible.
Therefore, all of the following are from correlation of the whole Bible. Any Scriptures here are listed as a beginning for study rather than as a proof text. For questions regarding any point, please email the Stalcups.
We do believe these Bible doctrines, but this page lacks the phrase “We believe…” in order to emphasize the truth of these doctrines regardless of our endorsement. Bible doctrines are true and not subjective. That is, they are not dependent on any person’s belief or endorsement. The purpose of this statement is not to create debate but rather to explain who we are and how we understand Scripture.
We also agree with the doctrinal statement of our sending church, Emmanuel Baptist of Kings Mountain, NC.

We were married on July 4th, 2013, and immediately began serving the Lord together in our church. We have enjoyed singing in the choir, working in the Christmas drama, teaching boys’ Sunday School, directing the Master Clubs (elementary grades Wednesday program), and serving in church visitation together. The Lord blessed us with our daughter Anna Faith November 2, 2014. Timothy Richard Stalcup, Jr. was born February 5, 2017. Throughout the past several years, we have prayed and researched how the Lord might enable us to impact the nation of Afghanistan. We look forward to serving the Lord as a family in New York City evangelizing Afghan Muslims there.
