Our Statements of Faith

We Believe…

  • …that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)
  • …that the entire Bible (Old and New Testament) is the inspired Word of God and is completely trustworthy and useful for us today. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  • …that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
  • …that forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord by believing in Him, repenting of their sins, confessing their faith, and being baptized into Jesus Christ. (John 3:16Romans 10:9Acts 2:38Romans 6:3-4)
  • …that the church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and to build one another up in love. (Matthew 28:19-20Ephesians 4:15-16)
  • …that Jesus Christ will one day return for His church and will reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

Marriage…

At creation God instituted marriage for the wellbeing of humanity (Genesis 2:20-74Mark 10:6-9). Marriage is the joining of one man and woman into a lifelong relationship which scriptures call “one flesh.” Sexual intercourse is God’s gift to humanity, for the intimate union of man and woman within marriage. In this relationship, it is to be celebrative.
