Statement of faith

God exists eternally as three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19, 1 Corinthians 12:4-6, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Hebrews 9:14)

The Heavenly Father, the first person of the triune Godhead, in His great love for the world, sent His beloved only begotten Son into the world as the Savior of mankind to provide everlasting life and Fatherhood for each believer. (John 3:16, Romans 8: 14, 1 John 4:14)

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God; was manifested in the flesh by virgin birth; was crucified as the only acceptable sacrifice for our sins; arose bodily from the grave; is preparing a place for us; will return for us. (John 3:35; John 1:1, 14, John 14:1-6, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Corinthians 15:3-9, 1 Peter 2:24, 1 Peter 3:18)

The Holy Spirit draws, regenerates, and gifts us to confess Jesus as our Savior from our sins and Lord of our lives; indwells us to explain the Bible and empowers us to live godly lives. He is also the Agent of our security and inheritance in Christ. (John 16:7-14, Acts 5:3-4, Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12: 13, Ephesians 5: 17-21)

Every person is a sinner and separated from God until repenting of his sins and receiving God's gift of eternal life by trusting in Jesus Christ alone as Savior and Lord. (Acts 4:12, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, 1 Peter 1:18-21)

The Bible is the Word of God; it is God-breathed and without error; it is the final authority for our faith and living. (Psalm 19:7-8, Matthew 5: 18; 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 4: 12, 2 Peter 1 :20-21)

Believers are eternally safe and secure in Jesus and give evidence of genuine faith by a life of good works. (John 3: 16, John 10:27-29, Romans 8:38-39, James 2:14-1 7)

The church is the living body of Christ on earth comprised of all believers in Jesus Christ, but is manifested through assemblies which are devoted to worshipping God, maturing believers and reaching unbelievers with the Gospel. (Matthew 16:8, Matthew 28:19-20, 1 Corinthians 12:27, Ephesians 1: 22-23, Ephesians 4:11-13 , Hebrews 10:25)

The future life of believers is a blessed eternity with God in heaven, but unbelievers face eternal suffering apart from God. (Matthew 25:46, John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 5:8, 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18, Revelation 20:11-1 5)

Within God's ultimate sovereign choice, eternal life is offered to the world from a divine heart of love that desires all to respond to that love, wanting no one to perish and promising an eternal relationship to every sincere seeker. (Proverbs 8: 17, Jeremiah 19: 13, Amos 5:4, John 1:7, 3:16-17, 5:40, 6:44, Romans 8:33, Ephesians 1:4-5, I Timothy 2:3-4, 2 Peter 3:9)

We believe that the term "marriage" has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Genesis 2: 18-25; Mark 10:6-9) We believe that God has provided for sexual intimacy to occur only within marriage and that any form of sexual intimacy outside of the bounds of marriage, as marriage is herein defined, is sin. (Matthew 15:18-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 18, 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4).
