Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. (2 Timothy 3:15-16; 1 Thessalonians 2:13)

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of the universe. He exists in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 40:28; Ephesians 4:4-6)

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1:23; John 1:29)

We believe that sin has separated us from God and His purpose for our lives. We believe that salvation is a gift from God by grace through faith alone; that in order to receive forgiveness from God and receive salvation that we must believe in Jesus Christ and His life, death, burial, and resurrection as payment for our sins. (John 3:16; John 14:6; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 2:13)

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life, to witness, and work for the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 3:5-8, Romans 8:9)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church. (1 Corinthians 12:12)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation and eternal punishment. (1 Corinthians 15:51-57; Revelation 20:11-15)

We believe that all human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; and all are created by God in His image. We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. We believe marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union. We believe that sexual intimacy is a gift from God and has its proper place only within the context of marriage. (Genesis 1:27; Psalms 139:13-16; Isaiah 49:1; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark 10:6-9)

We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31.)
