Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe in . . .

The Holy Scriptures of the Christian Bible as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, inerrant, entirely trustworthy and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct;*

The Triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - as revealed in His own works and Word;

The deity and lordship of Jesus Christ, His substitutionary atonement for sin, His bodily resurrection and His personal, visible return to earth in final judgment of the world at the end of time, and His eternal reign in righteousness and glory;

The deity and personhood of the Holy Spirit and His work of conviction, regeneration, and sanctification, who indwells every believer equipping them with gifts for service and witness;

The necessity of new spiritual birth, in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone and the importance of a life fully committed to the will of God in Christ;

The church as the one universal body of Christ who is the Head, called to be God's redeemed people;

The family, historically understood and biblically delineated,** as the fundamental and necessary organizing structure of human society, initiated through the marriage of a man and a woman and sanctified in the love, moral purity and fidelity of all its members.
