Statement of Faith

  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired, authoritative Word of God in its original manuscripts; it is without error in all its teaching.
  • We believe that there is one God, Lord of the universe, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the ministry of evangelism and discipleship is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the deity of Jesus the Christ, he is God the living Word who became flesh; in His virgin birth; in His perfect, sinless life; in His miracles; in His atoning death through His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to heaven to the right hand of God the Father; and in His personal and visible return in power and glory.
  • We believe in the reality and personality of Satan, the Adversary of God. Satan is the originator of moral evil and the temporary prince of this world. He and his agents are active in blinding mankind to spiritual truth, inciting anti-Semitism and attempting to defeat believers. Believers can and should resist him by applying Scriptural truth.
  • We believe that all people are lost sinners and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  • We believe that one must repent from unbelief and put their faith and trust in Jesus the Christ as Lord and Savior. Only then is one born again by the Holy Spirit and thus becomes a child of God.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe all mankind will be resurrected – those who are saved to eternal life and those who are lost to eternal damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; and that we must have concern for the physical and spiritual needs of our fellow men.
  • We believe God’s plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God created man and woman as unique biological persons made to complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female.
  • We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. Because of the specialized calling of our movement, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible alone, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us.  We believe and publicly acknowledge that faith in the Deity of Jesus, whom is the Christ, is the only hope of our salvation.
