Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, trustworthy and true, without error, Word of God. (2
Timothy 3:16-17)

 We believe there is only one God who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 28:19)

 We believe Jesus Christ is God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death that
paid for, our sin through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension/rising up to the
right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory. (John 1:1; Matthew1:18,25;
Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 9:15-22; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 9:27-28)

 We believe the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only path to salvation for lost/sinful men
and women. (John 3:16; John 5:24; Titus 3:3-7)

 We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who lives within and guides Christians so they are
enabled to live Godly lives. (John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Ephesians 1:13-14)

 We believe in eternal life, and that through belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, we spend eternity with the
Lord in Heaven. We believe that in rejecting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we receive eternal suffering in
hell. (Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

 We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, that all believers are members of His
body, the Church. (Philippians 2:1-4)

 We believe God’s design for sexual intimacy is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God
created a man and a woman to complement one other. God instituted marriage between one man and one
woman as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe
that marriage is the exclusive the union of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5-6; Mark
10:6-9; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9)

 We believe that God created all human beings in His image. Therefore, we believe that human life is sacred
from conception to its natural end; that we must honor the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of all
people; following Christ’s example, we believe that every person should be treated with love, dignity and
respect. (Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21
