Statement Of Faith

Statement of Faith: Our Beliefs

The Holy Scriptures

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the verbally and plentifully inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-breathed and, therefore, are final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament are the complete and divine revelation of God to Man.

The Godhead

We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – each co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, coequal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Deut.6:4; Math.28:19; John 14:10,26; 2 Cor. 13:14)

The Person and Work of Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men. (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2,14; 2 Cor. 5:19-21; Gal. 4:4-5; Phil.2:5-8)

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross; and, that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (Acts 2:18-36; Rom. 3:24-25; Eph. 1:7; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Peter 1:3-5)

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to 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; Rom.8:34; Heb.9:24;7:25; 1 John 2:1-2)

The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. (John 16:8-11; Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor.12:12-14; 2 Cor. 3:6; Eph. 1:13-14)

We believe that He is the divine Teacher who assists believers to understand and appropriate the Scriptures and that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit. (Eph. 1:17-18; 5:18; 1 John 2:20,27)


We believe that salvation is the gift brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. We believe that all sins, except blasphemy of the Holy Spirit are forgivable. (Math 12:31-32; John 1:12; Eph.1:7;2:8-10; 1 Pet.1:18-19)

The Church

We believe that the local church, which is he body and the espoused bride of Christ, is solely made up of born-again persons. (1 Cor.12:12-14; 2 Cor.11:2; Eph.1:22-23; 5:25-27)

We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures. (Acts 14:27; 20:17,28-32; 1 Tim.3:1-13; Titus1:5-11)

We believe in the autonomy of the local church free of any external authority or control. (Acts 13:1-4;15:19-31; 20:28; Rom.16:1,4; 1 Cor.3:9,16; 5:4-7,13; 1 Pet. 5:1-4)

Human Sexuality

We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between one man and one woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex. We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one’s gender by surgery or appearance. (Gen.2:24; Gen.19:5, 13; Gen. 26:8-9; Lev.18:1-30; Rom. 1:26-29; 1 Cor. 5:1; 6:9; 1 Thess.4:1-8; Heb.13:4)

We believe that the only Scriptural marriage is the joining of one man and one woman. (Gen.2:24; Rom.7:2; 1 Cor.7:10; Eph.5:22-23)

Family Relationships

We believe that men and women are spiritually equal in position before God but that God has ordained distinct and separate spiritual functions for men and women in the home. The husband is to be the leader of the home, and must love and honor their own wife as their own bodies. Accordingly, women must submit themselves unto their own husband as unto the Lord and shall not usurp authority over the man. The Children must obey, respect and honor their parents in the Lord and Parents should bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Eph.5:22-33; Eph.6:1-4; 1 Pe.3:1-7; 1 Tim.2:8-15.)
