Our Statement of Faith

We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God

We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture. We believe the Bible is without error (inerrant) in its original manuscripts, that God has supernaturally preserved the Bible, and that the Bible is the sole and final authority for faith and life, providing encouragement, guidance, comfort and instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter: 1:20-21)

We believe man receives salvation through faith in Jesus Christ

We believe in the incarnation and virgin birth of Jesus Christ

We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, who is God in human flesh; fully God, fully man; His sinless life on earth; the shedding of His blood through His death on the cross as payment for the sins of the world, and Jesus' bodily resurrection from the grave. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; 1Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 2:14-15, 9:14; 1 Corinthians 15:20-21)

We believe marriage is between one man and one woman

We believe marriage is between one man and one woman, and any sexual activity outside of marriage is sin. (Genesis 2:22-24; Ephesians 5:22-33; Matthew 19:4-6; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Corinthians 6:13-20)
