STATEMENT OF BELIEFS

 

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and the only infallible authoritative Word of God.  (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)

 

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; John 10:30, 37, 38)

 

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin Birth, in His sinless life, in His Miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35; Hebrews 4:15, 7:25, 9:12; John 2:11, 11:25; Colossians 1:13-14; Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-16)

 

We believe that man is sinful by nature and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for his salvation. (Romans 3:19, 23; John 3:16-19, 5:25; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5, 6)

 

We believe in the continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.  (Ephesians 4:30, 5:18; I Corinthians 3:16, 6:9-20)

 

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost—they who are saved unto eternal life, and they who are lost unto eternal damnation.  (John 5:28-29)

 

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28)

 

We believe in the creation of man by the direct act of God. (Genesis 1:26-27, 5:1-2)

           

We believe that marriage is a biblical institution established by God as clearly described in the scriptures. This Organization recognizes marriage exclusively as the legal union of one man and one woman in a lifetime covenant. The Bible teaches that legitimate sexual relations are exercised solely within marriage. (Gen. 2:21-25), (Matt. 19:4-6)
