And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. -Deuteronomy 6:6-7
BCHE STATEMENT OF FAITH
The Bible is the inspired and infallible God-breathed Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
God has existed from all eternity in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14). Jesus Christ, born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:34-35), was God who came in human flesh being fully God and fully man except without sin (John 1:14; 1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 2:14-17.) Man is by nature sinful and is inherently in need of salvation (Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23; Romans 10:9-13).
Christ bore our sins in His body on the cross so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. (2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Peter 3:18; Isaiah 53:5; 1 John 2:2 ). He rose bodily from the dead (Matthew 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-20; Luke 24:1-53; John 20:1–21:25) .
Salvation is offered as a gift, free to the sinner. This gift must be responded to in faith, trusting in the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galations 3:21; II Timothy 1:9).
Children are a heritage from the Lord entrusted to parents to train up in righteousness for His glory (Psalm 127:3-5).
