The Scriptures

We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, and God-breathed. 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21

 

The One True and Living God

We believe that there is one God and only one, Who is self-existent, eternal, and infinite in every excellence; and Who has revealed Himself as FATHER, SON, and HOLY GHOST, the same in essence, though distinct in personality. Isaiah 45:21-22; Jeremiah 10:10; Exodus 3:14; Deuteronomy 6:4; John 1:1-3; Romans 9:5; 1 Timothy 3:16; Revelation 1:8; John 14:26, 15:26; Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 12:11; Matthew 28:19

 

The Origin, Nature, and Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adam’s sin the human race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and that man is totally depraved, and of himself utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; Ephesians 2:2-3; Romans 5:12

We believe that God created man and woman in His own image as two distinct but equal genders and that He defined separate, interdependent roles for each. We further believe that the rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God and God’s design for that person. Genesis 1:26-27; Matthew 19:4-5

We believe in the Biblical definition of marriage, which is the uniting of one man and one woman in an exclusive and permanent relationship. Sexual intimacy belongs exclusively within the bonds of marriage, and any form of sexual immorality (adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and an offense to God. Genesis 2:18-25; 1 Corinthians 6:18, 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4; Matthew 15:18-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10

 

The Savior

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross, as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and that our justification is made sure by His literal physical resurrection from the dead. Romans 3:24-25; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3-5

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate. Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 9:24, 7:25; Romans 8:23; 1 John 2:1-2

 

The Way of Salvation

We believe that salvation is the gift of God, brought to men by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose blood was shed on Calvary’s cross for the forgiveness of our sins.. Ephesians 2:8-10; John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19

 

The Future

We believe in the premillennial coming of Christ. Jesus Christ is to come again, judge the nations, and fill the earth with His glory and power. Matthew 24:25-51; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-8; Revelation 1:7, 20:1-6
