Every word in the original writings of the Holy Scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments is inspired by God, without error, and of supreme authority in all matters of faith and life.

(II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21)

Interpretation of Scripture

We believe the approach to interpreting the Scriptures is the literal, grammatical, historical approach.



The Godhead exists eternally in three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one God.

(Deuteronomy 6:4; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1-3, John 8:58, John 10:30; Acts 5:3-4; II Corinthians 13:14)


Jesus Christ

The eternal Son of God became incarnate in the Lord Jesus Christ, being born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.

(John 1:1, John 1:14, John 1:18, John 5:18; Philippians 2:6-11; Colossians 1:19; 2:9; I Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 1:1-9; I John 5:20)


Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Godhead, who regenerates, indwells, baptizes, and seals all believers in Christ, and fills those yielded to God.

(Acts 5:3-4; Matthew 28:19; John 3:3-7; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 2:12; I Corinthians 6:19; I Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18)



Man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adam, all mankind fell into sin with the result that all men are sinners, hopelessly sinful in themselves, apart from the grace of God.

(Genesis 1:27; Genesis 9:6; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12; Romans 8:6-7; Ephesians 2:1-3)



Salvation is received by faith alone in Christ, who died as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures and rose again. All who believe in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood and receive the gift of eternal life. This is the message of the Gospel.

(Acts 4:12; Acts 16:31; I Corinthians 15:1-4; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:12; John 3:16; Romans 5:1)



All who are born of the Spirit through faith in Christ can have the assurance of salvation and are eternally secure in Christ.

(John 10:27-29; Romans 8:1; Ephesians 1:13-14; John 5:24; II Timothy 1:12; I John 5:11-13)



The Scriptural ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are for all believers in Christ. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 8:12, Acts 8:36-38; I Corinthians 11:23-26)



Satan is one of several names given in the Bible for the personal being who is the source of all evil. The Bible pictures him as “your adversary the devil,” a roaring lion, walking about, seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8) As the slanderer, the devil slanders God to man (Genesis 3:1-5) and man to God. (Job 1:9) As the adversary, he successfully tempts man to rebel against God. Satan is a power second only to God but is subject to God. (Job 1:6) He was created by God and will one day be cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:10)



The Scriptures teach that Jesus Christ rose from the dead in His glorified body and all that put their trust in Him will be raised bodily to live with Him forever in His Kingdom. The Bible speaks of the resurrection of the Just and the Unjust. The Just will be raised to live with Christ, and the Unjust will be raised to live in Hell.

(1 Corinthians 15, 1 John 3:2, 1 Thessalonians 4:1-18, Revelation 20:14-15)


Marriage and Sexuality

The Bible calls out that marriage involves the union of one man and one woman in permanent sacred fidelity. God alone is the ultimate authority to prescribe and describe the marital relationship.

(Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:1-9, Mark 10:1-12)

Sexual intimacy is only properly exercised and pursued within the confines of marriage. Sexual immorality, defined as any sexual activity outside the boundaries of the marriage of one man to one woman, is prohibited by God.

(Matthew 15:19, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, 1 Thessalonians 4:3)

The Church regards any and all forms of sexual immorality, including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual behavior, bestiality, incest, pornography or lustful intent towards such, to be sinful. The Church holds that sexual identity is to be biologically determined at birth.

(Genesis 1:27, Romans 1: 26-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

In order to preserve the function, integrity, and witness of the Church, it is imperative that all persons employed by the Church or united to the Church in membership should abide by and agree to this “Statement of Marriage and Sexuality” and conduct themselves accordingly. The Gospel provides for redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin and seek forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

(1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Ephesians 2:1-10, Titus 3:3-7)

As a church desiring to follow and obey Jesus Christ fully, the Church will be a safe place for men and women fighting sexual temptations of all kinds. The Church will provide love, care, and direction to those dealing with sexual temptations.

(1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Ephesians 2:1-10, Titus 3:3-7)

This “Statement on Marriage and Sexuality” does not condone bigotry, bullying, or hate. We fully believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, respect, and dignity, regardless of their lifestyle. Hateful and harassing attitudes toward any individual are sinful and are not in accordance with Scripture or Church doctrine.
