Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God
We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
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 to power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man,
regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling
the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost;
they that are saved unto the resurrection of life,
and they that are lost, unto the resurrection of damnation.

Statement on Marriage and Family

We believe that God designed marriage for humanity.  Biblical marriage, as described in the story of creation (Genesis 2:24) and affirmed by Jesus (Mark 10:6-9), is designed by God to be a covenantal, lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship is immoral and sinful (Proverbs 2:16-17; Malachi 2:14).  We believe that God wonderfully created two distinct sexes, male and female (Genesis 1:27).  The lifelong, sexually exclusive relationship also brings children into the world and thus sustains the stewardship of the earth.  Biblical marriage should be marked by faithfulness, sacrificial love and joy, because it displays the relationship between God and His people (Exodus 20:14, 17; Leviticus 18:22-23; Matthew 5:27-28, 19:4-9; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; Hebrews 13:4; Jude 7; Revelation 21:1-9).

Statement on Gender and Biological Sex

Gender and biological sex are equal and cannot be separated. A person’s gender is determined at conception, coded in the DNA, and cannot be changed by drugs, hormones, or surgery. Rejection of one’s biological sex or identifying oneself by the opposite sex is a sinful rejection of the way God made that person.   (Genesis 1:26–28, 5:1–2; Psalm 51:5, 139:13–16; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 1:20–21, 19:4–6; Mark 10:6; Luke 1:31; Acts 3:19–21; Romans 10:9–10; 1 Corinthians 6:9–11; Galatians 3:28).
