Statement of Faith

Our overarching belief is to love the one true all-powerful God above all else, 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, in any capacity, to uphold:

  1. We believe that the Bible containing the Old and New Testament, is alone the only infallible inspired Word of God, and that its authority is ultimate, final and eternal. It cannot be added to, subtracted from, or superseded in any regard. The Bible is the source of all doctrine, instruction, correction and reproof. It contains all that is needed for guidance in godliness and practical Christian conduct. (2 Tim 3:16)
  2. We believe in one all-powerful, ever-present God who is responsible for the creation of all things and exists in the form of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, John 14:11, 16; 15:26)
  3. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was born through the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary for the purpose of restoring the relationship between God and man, and rescuing the lost and hurting of this world. To do this, He lived a life without any sin and then allowed Himself to be tortured and executed on a cross, dying a horrible death in order to bring about forgiveness of sin and new life. Three days after His death, Christ miraculously came back to life and ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father. He is the only Peacemaker between God and the human race. (John 1:1, 14; 2 Cor 5:21; Rom 3:25-26; Luke 24:6-7; Eph 1:20-21; Act 1:10-11)
  4. We believe that every person does wrong in their life, no matter how hard they may try not to, and that all sin–whether big or small–separates us from a perfect God. Full pardon can only be granted through confession, repentance and a decision to believe fully in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice. This is the only way to live eternally with God in heaven. (Romans 10:9-10, 1 John 1:6-9)
  5. We believe that the Holy Spirit is God’s gift to help people experience a spiritual rebirth and effectively grow-up in their faith in a world that is hostile to it. The Holy Spirit is the Helper for the Christian’s consistent need to be reminded of how to be truthful, wise, faithful, holy, loving, powerful and responsible. (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. (1 Cor 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. (Gen 1:27; 1 Cor 12:7; 1 Pet 4:10)
  9. We believe that the Scriptures portray the life of the saint in this world to be one of balance between what is attributed to us as Christians and what is imparted to us according to our faith and maturity. Hence, God’s provision for His children is total, and the promises are final and forever. The Christian life is filled with trials, tests, and warfare against a spiritual enemy. For those abiding in Christ until their deaths or His return, the promises of eternal blessing in the presence of God are assured. To remain faithful through all circumstances of life requires dependence upon the Holy Spirit and a willingness to die to personal desires and passions. (Eph 6:10-18, 2 Cor 10:3-5, Gal 2:20)
  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. (Gen 1:26-28, Rom 1:26-32, 1 Cor 6:9-11)
  11. We believe in the sanctity of life and that God has ordained all the days of the person’s life before they were born, from the moment of fertilization until natural death. (Psalm 139: 13, 14, 16)
