statement

of faith

We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the only and final authority for faith and life, inerrant, infallible, and God-inspired. We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man.

 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice and that our justification is made sure by His literal physical resurrection from the dead.

 

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven where he ministers as our Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate.

 

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that through Adam’s sin the race fell and was alienated from God.

 

We believe marriage is ordained of God and is a spiritual and physical union in which a man and a woman are joined by God to live together as one. (Genesis 2:24; Mark 10:7)

 

We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.  We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, transgenderism, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God's gift of sex and identity. (Genesis 2:24; Genesis 19:5, 13; Genesis 26:8-9; Lev. 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; I Corinthians 5:1, 6:9; I Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4)

 

We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins.

 

We believe in the Blessed Hope, the personal, imminent, coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones and in His subsequent return to earth to establish His kingdom.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment.
