Statement of Faith

Our overarching belief is to love the one true all-powerful God above all else, love yourself, then faithfully love and serve others. (Matthew 22:36-40) While we strive to serve anyone God puts in our path, the following statements are the beliefs that we ask those who align themselves with us, whether in leadership or partnership, to uphold:

  1. We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. (2 Tim 3:16)
  2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (John 14:11, 16; 15:26)
  3. We believe in the deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious death and atonement through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory. (John 1:1, 14; Luke 1:26-31; 2Cor 5:21; John 14:10-11; Rom 3:25, 26; Luke 24:6, 7; Eph 1:20, 21; Act 1:10,11)
  4. We believe that people are sinful and lost, saved by faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ, and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:5, 6;Eph 2:8,9)
  5. We believe in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit, by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. (Gal 5: 16, 25)
  6. We believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life eternal. (Eph 1:7; John 11:25; 1 John 5:11,12)
  7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (1Cor 12: 27; Eph 4:1-6)
  8. We believe that men and women are created in the image of God, uniquely gifted and empowered by the Holy Spirit to serve and build up the body of Christ. (Gen1:27; 1Cor 12:7; 1Pet 4:10)
  9. We believe in and are committed to the home and family as set forth in Holy Scripture. We believe God has ordained and created marriage to exist between one man and one woman, with absolute marital fidelity. (Genesis 1:27-28, Genesis 2:18-24, Matthew 19:4-9, Mark 10:5-9, Ephesians 5:31-33)
  10. We believe that God created mankind in His image: male (man) and female (woman), sexually different but with equal personal dignity. We believe men and women must affirm their biological sex and refrain from any and all attempts to physically change, alter, or disagree with their predominant biological sex. (Genesis 1:26-28, Romans 1:26-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11)
