We believe in the verbal plenary inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, by the Holy Spirit as originally given; they are the final authority for our faith and life.
II Timothy 3:16
We believe in one God revealed in three coequal and distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Divinity and Humanity of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who, by His incarnation and virgin birth, took upon Himself the form of man and became the God-Man. In the one person of Christ there are two natures, human and divine, each in its completeness and integrity. They are distinguishable but indivisible, so that He is fully man and fully God. He lived a sinless life and became the only sacrifice for the sins of the world.
Any other god that claims to be the "Christ" is a false god and an idol.
I Peter 1:18-19
We believe in the visible, bodily return of Christ to this earth to judge the world and to claim His Bride.
I Thessalonians 4:13-18
Heaven and Hell
We believe in the doctrines of eternal punishment for the lost and eternal bliss for the saved. Hell is explicitly for the unsaved and heaven for the saved.
We believe that Satan is a fallen, created being who is the “god of this world.” He and his well-organized company of demons are opposed to the Kingdom of God and work to defeat and destroy the believer. While his activity is real, Satan and his demon spirits were defeated and overthrown by Christ’s victory at the cross.
We believe the Holy Spirit to be the third person of the Godhead who is active in the world today. The person of the Holy Spirit indwells and seals the believer at new birth. We believe that baptism in the Holy Spirit is a subsequent experience and is available to all Christians to empower them to be witnesses. We believe in and encourage the use of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Sexuality & Marriage
The issue of covenant stands at the center of the Triune God’s nature and His interactions with mankind. In like manner, all human covenants are to mirror that which is seen by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This understanding of God’s nature guides our view of the expression of marriage and our sexuality. Marriage was uniquely created by God for the display of His love and glory to an unredeemed world as a portrait of God’s unfailing love to His people, Jesus’ love for His Church, and how the Church is to be devoted to Christ in return. Furthermore, the sexual ethic within Scripture is clear: physical intimacy and sexual love are to be expressed solely between a husband and a wife.
God made men and women different (Gen. 1:27). Contrary to mistaken interpretations, sexual difference does not exist on a continuum where some men are more like women or vice versa. Men and women are different at the deepest levels of their being. Our chromosomes are different. Our brains are different. Our voices are different. Our body shapes are different. Our body strengths are different. Our reproductive systems are different. The design for what our bodies are structured and destined for are different, and these designs bear witness to differences that reflect God’s creative will for humanity. Because men and women are different, it’s philosophically impossible for a man to become a physical woman or a physical woman to become a man. Those who say otherwise are trafficking in fiction about human nature. In fact, there is no scientific proof to verify the claim that one is trapped inside the wrong body.
If God made men and women fundamentally and comprehensively different, then the idea that a man could ever become a woman (or vice versa) is simply impossible. The differences between men and women can’t be overcome simply because one person feels they’re a member of the opposite sex. Your psychology (feelings) cannot change your ontology (being).
Our Summation: The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
