We believe in one God who has revealed Himself in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. [Romans 1:20] The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are all co-eternal and all stand equally superior to time, free from the temporal distinctions of past and future.
We believe in God the Father, Creator of all things visible and invisible. [Colossians 1:15-16]
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, who came into the world to reveal the Father, and was the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person. Jesus Christ was the Creator of everything, for by Him all things were made. We further believe that in Christ dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form and that He was very God and very Man. [John. 1:1-2 & 14; I Timothy 3:16; Acts 7:37-38]
We believe in Jesus Christ’s pre-existence, incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutionary and atoning death, bodily resurrection, bodily ascension into heaven, exaltation, present rule at the right hand of God, coming personal return in power and great glory, and in His everlasting Kingdom and dominion. [Acts 1:11; 3:19-21; Daniel 7:14; Revelation 20:4] We acknowledge His Lordship – that Jesus Christ is Lord over all things in heaven and on earth, and under the earth. [Philippians 2:9-10]
We believe in the Holy Spirit, His present ministry, His indwelling, His empowering, His impartation of gifts for today and His transforming power in the lives of all believers. [I Corinthians 12:4-11, Galatians 5:22-23]
We believe that God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood or adoption. [Genesis 1:27-28]
We believe that marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. [Genesis 2:20-25, Matthew 19:5-6] The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since both are created in God’s image. [Genesis 1:27] A husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church. [Ephesians 5:25, Colossians 3:19] A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ. [Ephesians 5:24, Colossians 3:18]
We believe that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is immoral and therefore sin [Genesis 2:24-25; Exodus 20:14, 17, 22:19; Leviticus 18:22-23, 20:13, 15-16; Matthew 19:4-6, 9; Romans 1:18-31; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 15-20; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; Jude 7] We believe that God created the human race as male and female and that all conduct with the intent to adopt a gender other than one’s birth gender is immoral and therefore sin. [Genesis 1:27; Deuteronomy 22:5]
We believe that children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord. [Psalm 127:3, Psalm 139:12-15, Matthew 19:14] Parents are responsible for training their children in the ways of the Lord through encouragement, teaching, and discipline. [Deuteronomy 11:19, Ephesians 6:4, Colossians 3:21, Proverbs 13:24, 19:18]
Care For The Orphans
|We believe that we are called to care for the orphan. An orphan is a child or youth that has been deprived of parents, whether it is permanent or temporary. James 1:27, Isiah 1:17 states that we need to learn to do good, seek justice, reprove the ruthless, defend the orphan and plead for the widow.|
“Whoever receives a child in My name, receives Me.”
– Matthew 18:5
