Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God. (2 Tim 3:16, 2 Pet 1:21) The Trinity. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Gen 1:1, Matt 28:19, John 10:30)
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isa 7:14, Matt 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Heb 4:15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Cor 15:3, Eph 1:7, Heb 2:9), His Resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Cor 15:4), His Ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19), His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Rev 19:11).
We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God’s grace through faith alone are we saved. (John 3:16-19, 5:24; Rom 3:23, 5:8-9; Eph 2:8-10; Titus 3:5)
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation. (John 5:28-29) The Church. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Rom 8:9, 1 Cor 2:12-13, Gal 3:26-28) Sanctification. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (Rom 8:13-14; 1 Cor 3:16, 6:19-20; Eph 4:30, 5:18)
We believe that the term marriage has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe that God’s command is that there be no sexual intimacy outside of or apart from marriage between a man and a woman. (Gen 2:18–25, 1 Cor 6:18, 7:2–5, Heb 13:4)
We believe that God wonderfully foreordained and immutably created each person as either male or female in conformity with their biological sex. These two distinct yet complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen 1:26–27)
We believe in the dignity of every human who is made in the image and likeness of God. An individual’s biological sex, either male or female, is sovereignly and irreversibly appointed by God and is an irreversible aspect of his or her nature. Human sexuality is regulated by Scripture, which declares that marriage is the union between one man and one woman and that sexual intimacy is reserved for marriage only. Therefore, any sexual expressions outside of that realm (sex before marriage, homosexuality, adultery, fornication, etc.) are immoral and against God’s design. We also are to abstain from the promotion and advocacy of the aforementioned activities.
Sanctity of Life Statement
We believe that life, created by God and for His glory, begins at conception and continues until natural death. God has created man in His image and values each life as sacred and holy. God knows His children, and they are His workmanship. Therefore, any attempt to end life after conception is against God’s design.
