What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The Holy Scripture

We believe in THE HOLY SCRIPTURE: accepting fully the writings of the Old and New Testaments as the very Word of God, verbally inspired in all parts and therefore wholly without error as originally given of God, altogether sufficient in themselves as our only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice.  Psalm 119:160; Proverbs 30:5a; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21.

The One True God

We believe in THE ONE TRUE GOD: who is an intelligent, sovereign, spiritual and personal Being; perfect, infinite, and eternal in His being, holiness and love, wisdom and power; absolutely separate from and above the world as its Creator, yet everywhere present in the world as the Upholder of all things.  He is revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three distinct persons but without division of nature, essence or being, and each having a distinct ministry in God's relation to His creation and people. Genesis 1:1; Exodus 15:11; Psalm 83:18; 139:7-9; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; 15:26..

The Lord Jesus Christ

We believe in THE LORD JESUS CHRIST:  who is the second Person of the Triune God, the eternal Word and Only Begotten Son; that without any change in His divine Person, He became man by miracle of the Virgin Birth, thus to continue forever as both true God and true Man, one Person with two natures; that as Man He was tempted in all points as we are, yet without sin; that as the perfect Lamb of God He gave Himself in death upon the cross, bearing there the sin of the world, and suffering its full penalty of divine wrath in our stead; that He arose from the grave in a glorified body; that as our great High Priest He ascended into Heaven, there to appear before the face of God as our Advocate and Intercessor. John 1:1,14; 3:16; Matthew 1:18-25; Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:6-10; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7; Hebrews 4:14-16: 1 John 2:1-2..

The Holy Spirit

We believe in THE HOLY SPIRIT:  who is the Third Person of the Trinity, and the divine Agent in nature, revelation and redemption; that He convicts the world concerning sin, righteousness and judgment; that He regenerates, indwells, baptizes, seals and anoints all who become children of God through Christ; that He further empowers, guides, teaches, sanctifies and fills believers who daily surrender to Him.  John 3:5; 14:16, 17, 26; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:13; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 1:13; 5:18..

All Men Are By Nature And Choice Sinful And Lost

We believe ALL MEN ARE BY NATURE AND CHOICE SINFUL AND LOST:  that man was the direct creation of God, made in His image and likeness; that by personal disobedience to the revealed will of God, man became a sinful creature, the father of a fallen race which is universally sinful in both nature and practice, thus alienated from the life and family of God, under the righteous judgment and wrath of God, and has within himself no possible means of salvation.  Genesis 1:27; 3:6; Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:23; 5:12, 19; Galatians 3:11.

Salvation by Grace through Faith

We believe in  SALVATION BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH:  that salvation is the free gift of God, neither merited nor secured in part or in whole by any virtue or work of man, but received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, in whom all true believers have as a present possession the gift of eternal life, a perfect righteousness, sonship in the family of God, deliverance and security from all condemnation, every spiritual resource needed for life and godliness, and the divine guarantee that they shall never perish; that this salvation affects the whole man; that apart from Christ there is no possible salvation. Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; John 1:12; 3:14-16; 10:28-29; Romans 8:1; Philippians 1:6.

Marriage and Family

We believe in the MARRIAGE AND FAMILY that God has ordained: God established marriage as a lifetime holy covenantal union of one man and one woman (each biologically designed by birth). We believe Christian marriage is the union under God’s highest standards of a believing man and a believing woman, until death do they part, for the establishment of a Christian home for the glory of God.  We believe God has gifted intimate sexual relations for one man and one woman only within the sanctity of marriage. We believe God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity should be engaged in outside of marriage as all other forms of sexual expression are immoral and sinful perversions of God’s holy standards.  We further believe human life is precious and should be protected from beginning, at fertilization, until death. We believe children are a heritage from the Lord and are best raised by a Godly father and a Godly mother together in a Christian home. Genesis 1:26-28; 2:18, 24; 19:5-13; Leviticus 18:1-30; Psalm 139:13-16; Matthew 19:6; Romans 1:26-33; 7:2-3; 1 Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; Ephesians 5:22-33; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4..
