Declarations of Faith

We believe...

 

...the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God that speaks with absolute authority regarding the proper conduct of mankind (2 Timothy 3:16). 
 
...there is one God, eternally existent in three forms - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:4-6). 

 

...in the deity of Jesus Christ (John 10:38), who came to the world through a virgin birth (Matthew 1:21-23), lived a sinless life (2 Corinthians 5:20-21), performed countless miracles (John 20:30-31), died a vicarious, atoning death (Isaiah 53:5), was resurrected from the dead in the fulfillment of prophecy (Romans 6:4), ascended into Heaven, now seated at the right hand of God (1 Peter 3:21-22), and will one day return in power and glory (Matthew 16:26-27).
 
...renewal through the Holy Spirit is necessary for salvation because of human beings’ natural proclivity for sin and that we are justified by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, saved by God’s grace and faith alone (Titus 3:3-7).

 

...in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 1:10).

 

...in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling we are enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14).
 
...in the Biblical definition of marriage and its sanctity, specifically being between one man and one woman and that sexual intimacy should not occur outside of or apart from marriage between one man and one woman (Hebrews 13:4).
 
...God makes no mistakes when creating us, designating each human being as either male or female in conformity with his or her biological sex; these two distinct, yet complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Genesis 1:27).
