TCHE Statement of Faith

Adopted 2009: Revised 2016

1. Preface

Our Statement of Faith concerns the Person and Work of Jesus Christ (the Gospel) revealed in Scripture. It is that faith once delivered to the saints (Jude 3, Eph. 4:5) which distinguishes believers from non-believers. There are many other precious truths taught in the Bible over which godly men have differed in understanding. Therefore, this is not a statement of all that is important to believe but of all that is essential to believe for Christian fellowship and unity (Rom. 15:7).

2. Tenets

  a. We believe that the Bible is the only inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God (II Tim. 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21)

  b. We believe in the Trinity. (I John 5:7)

  c. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God and fulfilled all prophecy concerning the Messiah. (Luke 24:25-27)

  d. We believe all humans are sinful by nature. (Rom. 3:9-18, Rom. 5:12)

  e. We believe in the finished work of Jesus Christ as Savior and that it is only by His blood that men will live in Heaven. (Heb. 10:8-14)

  f. We reject the anti-Christian tenets of secular humanism, including the general theory of evolution, one-world government, government-mandated sex education, government-mandated parenting courses, modern feminist ideology, abortion and the promotion of LGBTQ lifestyle as an alternate, acceptable lifestyle. We also affirm the biblical definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24, Mark 10:6-9).
