Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21).
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that God is the Creator of Heaven and Earth (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9); His bodily resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, them that are saved unto the resurrection of life and them that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28, 29).
We believe that God loves each person and desires the salvation of all (II Peter 3:9, Romans 5:8).
We believe that salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ alone (Romans 10:9, John 3:16).
We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for salvation of the lost and sinful man and results in the new birth whereby sinful man becomes a new and different creature (John 3:16-19, 5:24, Romans 3:23, 5:8, 9; Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose in-dwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13, 14, I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19, 20, Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).
We believe the family is the basic unit of society established by God, Who intends for it to consist of one man and woman legally married to each other in a permanent relationship. They are responsible to train and teach their children in biblical principles. Any sexual activity outside of the bond of marriages as defined above is contrary to God’s will and design (Genesis 2:24; Deuteronomy 6:6-7;Romans 7:2; 1 Corinthians 7:10; Ephesians 5:22-23, Genesis 2:24; 19:5, 13; 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1: 26-29; I Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4).
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12, 13, Galatians 3:26-28).
We believe all of the law and the prophets depend on the commandments to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind” and to “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:34-40).
