If you use different IVs for each message, then each is indeed as "secure" as RC4 itself. Be warned though: some IVs are weak! You should switch to a modern cipher, like AES or Salsa20. (If you do not use unique IVs for each message, or use no IVs at all, your security is broken after the first re-use.)
