Statement of Faith

1. We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God, without any error, the all-sufficient authority in matters of faith, doctrine, and Christian living. (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; Luke 4:18; Luke 24:49; John '14-16; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

 

3. We believe in the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, and that He is the true God and man. He died on the cross for our sins. He rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father and is now our High Priest and Advocate. {Matthew 1:23; Luke 2:8-12; John 1:14; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 8:34; 1 John 2: 1-2)

 

4. We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and therefore lost. Only through regeneration by the work of the Holy Spirit can man's salvation and spiritual life be obtained. (Genesis 1:26; Titus 3:4-6)

 

5. We believe that eternal salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from man's works, and is possessed by any and all who have faith, repent, confess, be baptized into water and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. (Acts 2: 38, Mark 16: 16, John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)

 

6. We believe in a regenerated church membership: that is, persons old enough to understand their need for Jesus Christ and, of their own free will, accepted Him through the plan of salvation as their personal Lord and Savior. (Acts 2:40-47)

 

7. We believe that baptism is by immersion and the Lord's Supper is a memorial to His suffering and death on the cross. These are ordinances to be observed by the church in its present age. (Luke 3:21-22; 22: 19-20; Acts 16:30-31)

 

8. We believe in the personal, bodily, imminent, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ and that His Second Coming inspires believers for dynamic and zealous life and service for Him while waiting for His return. (John 14:3; 14:28; Acts 1:11; 2 Thessalonians 2; Hebrews 9:28)

 

9. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in heaven, and the everlasting punishment and separation from God of the unsaved in hell. (Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 21:7-8)

 

10. We believe in the autonomy of the local church. The church shall manage its own affairs and shall not be subject to any other religious body or organization. (Matthew 16:18-19; Ephesians 5:23; Colossians 1:18)

 

11. We believe that the term "marriage" has only one meaning and that is marriage sanctioned by God which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of marriage between a man and a woman. (Genesis 2: 15-25; Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-12; Hebrews 13:4)

 

12. We believe that because salvation is of the Lord, those who have received salvation are to live for God's glory. In order for us to glorify and enjoy God we must live under His liberating authority. Such a conviction impacts how we view human life as uniquely created in God's image and how we pursue our calling to protect human life from beginning to end. We believe that life begins at the moment of conception. (Psalms 139:13-16)
