Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God. (II Tim. 3:16; II Pet. 1:21).

We believe there is only 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 (I Cor. 15:3; Eph. 1:7; Heb. 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25; I Cor. 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (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; and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone we are saved (John 3:16-19; 5:24; Rom. 3:23; 5:8-9; Eph. 2:8-10).

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life; and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29).

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; I Cor. 3:16; 6:19-20; Eph.4:30; 5:18).

We believe that the Biblical account of a Christian family is very specific by nature and design (Gen. 2:23-24; Matt.19:4-5; Mark 10:6-8); that family is the basic unit of society, and that God’s will for the family does not include co-habitational relationships or homosexual marriages (I Cor. 6:9-10; 22:6; 29:17; Heb.13:4).

We believe in the Biblical principles of instruction and discipline (Matt.18:15-16; Heb. 2:5-11; Eph. 6:1-4).
