Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible alone to be the only divinely inspired and eternal Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible and God-breathed (Psalm 119:89, 152, Isaiah 40:8, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21). We believe that there is but one God only, eternally co-existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who are themselves co-eternal and co-equal (Colossians 1:16-19, John 17:10-11, Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19). We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in the sufficiency of His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension and His personal return in power and glory (Hebrews 1, 1 Peter 2:24, Acts 5:30, Acts 1:10). As the Scripture states, we affirm that all the fullness of God was revealed in Christ in bodily form (Colossians 1:19, 2:9-10). We believe salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins (Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5-6, John 3:14-17, Romans 10:9-10). We testify that the right and authority to become children of God is not based on our own efforts, but is found by belief in Jesus Christ and the absolute sufficiency of His finished work on the cross to redeem mankind (John 1:12, 1 John 5:11-13). We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female, and that these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Genesis 1:26-27). We believe that God created marriage to be exclusively the union of one man and one woman, and that intimate sexual activity is to occur exclusively within that union (Genesis 2:18-25, 1 Corinthians 6:18, 1 Corinthians 7:2-5, Hebrew 13:4).
