Statement of Faith

We believe in God almighty, the Creator of all things, existing eternally in three equal persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who are in such close relationship they are one.

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, the final authority for truth, doctrine, correction, and instruction in right living.

We believe man is created in God’s image to live in holiness and relationship with his/her Creator, but alienated from God because of our sin and guilt, and justly subject to God’s wrath.

We believe in Jesus Christ, born of the virgin Mary, fully human and fully God, lived a sinless life but tempted in every way, who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place, and was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Savior and Lord.

We believe in justification by God’s grace to all who repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.

We believe in the indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, who gives to all believers a new life and a new calling to obedient service and a joy filled life.

What We Believe

Human Gender, Identity, & Sexuality

We believe that God created man and that He created them male and female. As such, He created them equal in value, dignity, and worth, but different so as to complement and complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. (Genesis 1:26-272:18-25Matthew 15:18-2019:4-6John 4:16-18Romans 1:18-321 Corinthians 5:116:9-116:18-207:1-58-9Galatians 5:19-21Ephesians 5:3-71 Timothy 1:9-11Hebrews 13:4).

We believe that marriage is exclusively the uniting of one adult genetic male and one adult genetic female and that legitimate, intimate sexual activity is exercised solely within this definition of marriage.

We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of marriage. Hence, sexual immorality such as, but not limited to, adultery, fornication, pre-marital sex, incest, polygamy, homosexuality, transgenderism, bisexuality, cross-dressing, pedophilia, and bestiality are inconsistent with the revealed will of God in the Holy Bible. Further, lascivious behavior, the creation, viewing, and/or distribution of pornography and efforts to alter one’s physical gender or gender related appearance are incompatible with a true Biblical witness.

Homosexuality (whether in practice or identity), as well as other sexual addictions, is against God’s plan for mankind.

True, lasting life change is possible, but requires a life-long commitment to Christ and the process of healing and transformation.

We believe gender development, whether homosexual or heterosexual (or other variances), occurs as a part of a child’s early developmental process, between healthy relating with one’s own gender, starting with his or her parents, then further developing or further hindered in sibling, familial and peer relationships.

We believe that leaving sexual sin, including homosexuality, is about becoming a man or woman in Christ, not merely stopping this or that behavior.
