Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, inerrant, authoritative word of God (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).


We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy

Spirit (Genesis 1:1-3; John 1:1-3; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30).


We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 10:30,33); in His virgin birth (Matthew1:23;

Luke 1:35); in His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26); in His miracles (John 2:11); in

His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood (1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians

1:7; Hebrews 2:9); in His bodily resurrection (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4); in His

Ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); and in His personal return in

power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).


We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit because of the exceeding

sinfulness of human nature (Romans 3:23; 5:8-9; Titus 3:5).


We believe that justification is by faith in the shed blood of Christ alone, apart from works. It is

only by God’s grace through faith that anybody is saved (Romans 1:17; Ephesians 2:8-10).


We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto

resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-



We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians

12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28).


We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is

enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19-20; Ephesians

4:30; 5:18).


We believe that life, created by God and for His glory, begins at conception and continues until

natural death (Jeremiah 1:5; Psalm 139). God has created man in His image and values

each life as sacred and holy (Genesis 1:26-27; 9:6).


We believe in the dignity of every human being, everyone 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 (Genesis



We believe human sexuality is regulated by Scripture, which declares that marriage is the union

between one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24), and that sexual intimacy is reserved for

marriage only (Hebrews 13:4). Therefore, any sexual expressions outside of that realm

(including, but not limited to, sex before marriage, homosexuality, bisexuality, adultery,

etc.) are immoral and against God’s design (Exodus 20:14; Matthew 15:18-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Romans 1:24).
