Statement of Faith

1. The Bible
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God, and the final authority in faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21)

2. The Trinity
We believe in One God, Creator and Redeemer, eternally existent in three persons- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)

3. Christ Jesus
We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4: 15, 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7,Hebrews 2:9), His Resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4), His Ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19), His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11)

4. Salvation
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died as a representative and substitutionary atonement, fully justifying all those that repent of their sins and put their faith in Him. By God’s grace we are saved by faith alone. We believe believers have the presence of the Holy Spirit indwelling in them enabling them to live a Godly life. (John 1:12-13, 3:16; Ephesians 1:7, 2:8-10, 4:30; Romans 3:23, 8:13-14, 10:9-10; 1 Corinthians 3:16)

5. Eternal State
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; that they are saved unto the resurrection of life (Heaven), and that they are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation (Hell). (John 5:28-29)

6. The Body
We believe in spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28)

7. Gender, Marriage & Sexuality
We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is against God’s design and therefore sin. (Genesis 2:20-24; Matthew 19:4-6; Romans 1:18-31; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 15-20; Jude 1:7) We believe that God created the human race male and female and that all conduct with the intent to adopt a gender other than one’s birth gender is against God’s design and therefore sin. (Genesis 1:27; Deuteronomy 22:5)

8. Creation
We believe that God created the heavens, the earth and everything in them. (Genesis 1)
