We have been called to be a New Testament Church founded on the teachings of Jesus. In John 15:12 Jesus says, "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you." We believe that Jesus is to be the foundation of the Church as a whole. Our church is built on His love for us that took all our sins away on the cross. We believe that in Jesus there is no "white race" or "black race." No matter what problems you might face in your life we know that Jesus is the Answer. In Him we are all one NEW family. In the year 2000 Jesus is the Answer Church was started as a Bible study in a Gordonsville, Tennessee home. The Bible study grew so much it had to move to the Senior Citizens Center in Alexandria, Tennessee. After two years, God spoke to Rev. Robert Scales to "Start the work." That is when the Bible study became a Church and began meeting at the Liberty State Bank on the Alexandria Town Square. Two years later, the church expanded again and was blessed to purchase the United Methodist Church building in Watertown, Tennessee. God has been with Jesus is the Answer Church since the beginning. This is evident by the lives that have been touched and forever changed.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. The Holy Spirit breathed upon men the very words God wanted them to say.
The Scriptures are Divine revelations given by God and received by man, and as such, are the only revelations that are infallible.
Jesus' teachings to the church are SUPREME authority in all matters of faith and morals. The Word of God directly reveals the will of God for all men and for all time.
We believe that Jesus' teachings are above all and should be the foundation of every Christians life. All other Scriptures should be built upon the foundation of His death, burial and resurrection.
Luke 6:46-49 (King James Version)
46And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
47Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
48He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
49But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
John 8:31-32 (King James Version)

9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
