Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:21)

We believe that there is one God, eternally co-existent in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory to earth in bodily form to conclude human history and consummate God’s eternal plan. (John 1:36-42, Isaiah 7:14, Hebrews 4:15, John 1:1 and 14, 1 Corinthians 15:3, John 19:40-42, John 2:19, Mark 16:19, Acts 7:56, 1 Timothy 2:5)

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for forgiveness of sins and eternal salvation, which is the free, unmerited gift of God’s grace. (John :16-19, John 5:24, Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5)

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (John 16:12-33)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation. (John 3:16-21)

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, that Jesus is the Head of the church, and that the members of that body are those who have personally received Christ by faith. (Ephesians 5:23-27)

We believe in the value of human life as the Bible teaches that human beings are created by God and in the image of God. As such we value and defend human life in all its stages from the moment of conception through natural death including every physical or mental challenge or condition. (Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 4:1, Jeremiah 1:5, Psalm 139)

We believe that the Bible is the final source for all transient cultural issues such as the definition of marriage between a man and a woman in a single and exclusive union. (Genesis 2:18-25)

We believe that sexual immorality in any form is a sin, including fornication, adultery, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and pornography use. And that God offers forgiveness for all sin to those who repent, turn away from sin, and turn to God to wash them, sanctify them, and justify them in the name of Jesus and by the Holy Spirit.  (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)
